Wow. The Nine Retreat.
Where do I even begin? All of the the feels you guys. ALL OF THEM.
The fact I'm a vital part of a retreat that is geared towards encouraging, motivating, and inspiring women blows my mind and makes my heart skip. Not only that, this retreat is meant to give moms and girl bosses the clarity and strength they need to run a smooth and successful business while still being passionate about what they do, AND being the killer mom/girlfriend/friend/wife etc... that they are. Its HARD, so hard, to balance your personal life with your business. That my friends, is where myself and the amazing team of speakers at the Nine Retreat come in.
What is my role at the retreat?
As most of you know, I'm a makeup artist. I've been a makeup artist for 7yrs and 2 months now! I love the art of makeup. I have always enjoyed helping others feel a little bit better if all it takes is a new shade of blush. I have always enjoyed trying new products, creating inspiring makeup looks, and working with brides on their wedding day.
However, the beauty industry can be toxic. We see ads all the time telling us what the definition of "beauty" is. Sometimes it makes me want to cry. Sometimes I do cry. And sometimes I question if I want to continue working in this industry. I believe I can be a force of change in the beauty industry. Many inspiring women are already doing this! I'm here to guide you to choose healthy cosmetics and to know you don't NEED makeup but that makeup can be fun and something you use to enhance your natural beauty, not change it.
My goals for the retreat-
I want to share my personal journey with all of you and how I came to work in the beauty industry to begin with. I want you all to know that I struggled for years with my skin, my appearance, and feeling like I needed to be "beautiful" in order to be accepted by others. I lost a huge part of myself and it took a long time to find that missing piece of me. Its been a rather interesting and enlightening journey. I truly believe I've met people such as Kym because to my core, I want to help people. I want to inspire everyone around me to go after what their heart REALLY desires and to know that no matter what, the love they have for themselves is the greatest gift they could ever give to themselves, their families, friends, and their business.
-I plan on show casing healthy cosmetics that are organic, vegan, and cruelty free. I'll talk about the science behind your skin, how stress effects it, and how skincare is your BEST FRIEND. If you don't love and nurture your skin before makeup, you're not going to love any cosmetic you wear no matter how pretty the shade of pink is. Makeup is fun! Not a necessity. I want you ALL to know you are beautiful inside and out without hiding behind blush.
-I will go over my favorite brushes and where you can find affordable options! I know price point can be intimidating when restocking your skin regimen and makeup bag.
-I will do a makeup demo so I can demonstrate product and brush techniques. My goal is to show you products and tools that you can use to achieve a look that lasts through out your busy days in 15-20min. I'll also give you tips for how you can seriously do your makeup in 10 min and run out the door.
