utterly engaged | beauty

I’ve never known how to do my own makeup.  My parents didn’t allow me to wear it growing up, so I never experimented and quite frankly, would’ve never been able to wake up early enough to do it anyway.  For whatever reason, after having a baby, I’ve become more interested.  My aunt taught me how to do basic eyes and an artist at the mall taught me how to contour (which I love, by the way)… but I’m still learning and very fascinated with all the different techniques.  When the fabulous ladies of Utterly Engaged contacted me about shooting a beauty editorial, I was so excited.  The concept was to have professional makeup artist Amy Clarke show them how to address their problem areas.  This was featured in the Utterly Engaged new issue!  Check out all the beauty!

Above are the two brilliant ladies of Utterly Engaged!  If you can’t tell, they are super fun!  And below are their wonderful interns.

Next is a glimpse at the 8 spread feature.  Go check out the rest of this make up editorial!  I can’t wait to experiment with some new products after reading this!

And just for fun, a photo of us from their leap year party:

propel photography workshop | pasadena, ca

Just wanted to share a little of the Propel fun.  I seriously have been on such a high since Thursday, even though I’m physically exhausted!  It was more tiring than a wedding, but so much fun.  I don’t even know how to describe how I felt in words… humbled, proud, inspired…  This is seriously a dream job for me.  I met 15 amazing people and photographers.  Some traveled great lengths to join us (like from Hong Kong!) so I knew I had to pack in as much content as I could for this one day workshop.  We started at 8am sharp and went as late as they could handle.  I can’t wait to share all the magic we made together… stay tuned in the next couple weeks!  In the meantime, just want to share all the amazing photographers I met:

L-R, top-bottom: Tony (HK), Angel (Indiana), Cheryl (Missouri), Eileen, Michelle, Jen, Lyda, Diana, Misou (Virginia), Jamie, Tauran, Becky, Anna (SF), Mica, Wing (Minneapolis)

And huge thanks to Ngoc of Skybox Events who made the day extremely organized and Wilmarose of Lovely Jubilee who made the day unbelievably beautiful!  I have so many more to thanks, but I’ll wait til I have photos of their beautiful contribution first.  Can’t wait to share with you all the gorgeous details!

In the meantime, if you’re interested in the next Propel, let me know where you want it held!
