Hard to believe that this year is almost over. 2011 has been a roller coaster for my business and my personal life. I'm happy that it's almost over. I welcome 2012 with arm wide open. I see a lot of different opportunities opening for my business.
Everyone always talk about New Year Resolutions. I'm am not a fan of making promises that are normally broken in the first couple of hours making them or in the days that follow. That is why I'm not making any resolutions. I am a determined women to get what I want. Instead of making resolutions. I'm going to be writing down my goals everyday for things that I need to get done that day. Rather it networking, Advertizing, etc. One thing that I am going to be working hard on beside by business will be branding myself.
If you all know me, you already know that I'm comfortable in my skin and what I wear. I love my jeans and my sneakers. You would only see me in heels when there is a special event. Now that I'm making myself into a business person. I need to dress the part. I will be doing a a complete make over of my closet with in a couple of weeks. I will be posting blog about my daily look with my outfit for the day and my make up and hair done as well.
This year is important to me because I'm seriously tired of working for a company that does not appreciate what they have. I'm a one women office and it's not cute with all the stress that I have to deal with because my boss does not want to talk to someone or he has another things that are more important then running a successful company.
Melis Beauty Artistry will be offering a once a month Make up service to include false eyelashes for free. Contest will be running from the begging of every month from the 1-15 day. I'm still working out all the details about the contest. Will post once they are complete. MB Artistry will also be starting her own Video Blog. Will be from products review or different tricks about make up. Make sure to look out for that.
MB Artistry is looking foward to this new year. Lets make it the Best on every. Look Forward to my Upcoming Blog of my New Year ever look and outfit.
Until Next Time

Sorry that I have been MIA for the past couple of weeks. I have recently been in a rut and didn't want to do my make up or even blog about anything that I has been interested to trying. Now I'm getting back to the things that I want to do and know where I am heading in my career. Still trying to figure out my steps but as I go.
Recently, I have purchased the Sephoria Collections Makeup Studio blockbuster. I have been using it on and off because I carry so many other eye shadow pallets inside my bag just in case I want to do my make up during my commute to work. Most of the time, I dont even bother doing it until I get to my office because my make up will not come out the way that I want it. If make up is on my face, I will like to feel good about what I am wearing.
The eye shadow pigment are good, some colors are more pigment then the other but if you build up the color. you will get exactly what you are looking for. The lip gloss are PERFECT. I cant get over how many different colors are inside the kit. I'm wearing one of the colors today. Perfect brush they provided to outline the lips with that color. Love the light bronzer that they have also included.
I honestly dont think I need any addition make up to what I have now. Unless it for my kit. LOl
Face: Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer spf 20.
Applied a light coverage to give my face a very natural color to it.
Concealer: Mac Select cover up NW25.
Only under my eyes. Even though I have been sleeping still getting dark spots in the corner of my eyes.
Eye brow: Maybelline Expert Wear eye brown pencile in Blond & Dark Brown,Anastasia Eye brow Powder in Blond, with a clear brow gel.
Checks: Mac Blush Peaches
Eyes: Sephoria Collections Makeup Studio blockbuster.
Gold - 2nd row from the left 4th Color down. Half of my lid
Copper- 2nd row from the left 5th Color down. Outer half of my lid.
Under the brow- 2nd own from the left 2nd Color down.
Eyesliner: Mac Eye liner Gel
Lips- Sephoria Collections Makeup Studio blockbuster. It is 10th row when the pallet is completely open 5th color down.
Until tomorrow my love.

Remember from my previous blog, I have spoken about ordering brushes with my business name on them? I was really happy about being able to order them today. I looked at the website a few weeks back and it has stated that the minimum was 24 brushes. The website didn't say that it had to be the same style of brushes. I placed an order for 80 bushes, really excited about getting my order in early today but only to have them email me and state that I didn't meet the qualification of the private label. When I read the email, I rechecked out the website and they make some change to the private label qualifications, I canceled the order. Never the less, I was ordering about about 26 different bushes and each brush had a quantity of 3. Why was I ordering so much brushes? Because I really wanted to have my own brushes for my make up kit and a set for my personal make up bag. This dream will be put on hold for now but won't be forgotten
After rethinking about what I wanted. I placed another order of the same bruses but only 1 brush per style and order myself a travel make up brush set. It's might not have my name on it. One day I will have my business name on my brushes and I will have the clientele that would want to have my brushes.
The brushes that I just ordered will be finish off my make up brushes set and I will be able to start start filtering out the ones that are to hard and I really don't like.
Hopefully, I would get my brushes next week. I will put up pictures next week of all my brushes, so you are able to see the different between the ones that I have now and what I got in the mail. Considering also do a video blog on youtube about this. Once I decide what I will do, you will be the first ones to know.
Until next time

I know I have been saying that I would keep up with my blog on a weekly basics. Honestly, its easier said then done. Working full time and being a mother, makes it so hard to do what I want to do.
While, I'm doing someone make up, the feeling I feel,I can't explain. I'm so happy that nothing could take that away from me. Even when I would do my own make up, I was so happy. Honestly, the past two weeks, I have been really down and I dont know why. I feel that I have invested so much money into my kit that its just going to waste. Its not that I'm looking to make money and be rich. I just want to do what makes me happy. Im at point right now, where I dont know what I want to do !!!!!

How was everyone weekend? Mine was very quite, which I have needed. I spent the The 4th of July trying out the 9 samples of eyeshadow pigment I have gotten from Inaz cosmetics. This is my review about their products and customer service.
I found this company on Fackbook. I was interested in getting samples from them because I am a Make-Up Artist and I'm always interested in new products are at a reasonable price and offers the pigment satisfaction that everyone should get when they are investing their money into a cosmetics line. If I like a product I will be filling my kit with several items from their company. If I don't like their products I would take it as a lost for the money I have spent on it already and put it in the make up I don't like draw. Why do I still keep it? Because family member of mine might like it and I will give it to them.

I found an amazing Boutique on Facebook. They are called Hazel Doll Boutique. I reviewed their pictures to show everything that they offered. They have a lot of items but I could not afforded to get them all right now. I came across a pair of Gold Glitter shoes that I instantly fall in love with. I left them a comment on the picture to find out their availability for those shoes but unfortunately they were sold out of the gold shoe but they did have the same style of shoe but in Black Glitter. I submitted my request for the black shoes.
Customer service quickly send me the payment request form via email, which then I was able to pay directly from my paypal account.I submitted payment about 1:00 pm on Friday June 24 and they receive the payment and shipped out my shoes the same day. I don't even get quick customer service like this with famous shoe companies. I received the tracking information once they was pickup from the USPS. What ever, Hazel Dolls Boutique is doing in customer service they must pass that information along to all these other companies that takes 3 day for an items to ship. (3 Days is to long to wait).
Today is June 28, 2011. I finally got in my shoes today because USPS mail man was really on a lazy day because I didn't get my box as per the Tracking number stated. Which got me even more upset with USPS because they claim they left a message ticket to go pick up the box at 3:00pm. Last time I check, I was in my office until 5:00pm. Totally impossible that he even tried to make that delivery. I would have been more understandable with USPS if it didn't leave the sorting facility in time for delivery then having them lie to me.

I'm so happy that Friday is Finally here. The Count down to 5:00 pm has already started. Even tho, I don't go out much, I love the feeling that I will be able to to sleep in for the next 2 day. :) Hopefully today will go buy quickly.
Today I am using NYX 10 Color Pallet For Brown Eyes. I recently just got this one maybe about 3 weeks ago. I have been playing with the colors and seeing what colors would look great together. I love all the colors. Normally I would do my make with 2 different pallet because 1 pallet would not hold every color that like . With the pallet, I don't have to look through another pallet for a color I like.
2nd Color is the 4th color on top row. It's a very light beige. I placed on the Inner half of my lid.
3rd Color is the 1st color on top row. This is like a brownish purple.. Which I place on my outer half of my lid and blended it into my crease.
Last but never lease. I applied a black Liquid Eye liner from NYX to my eyelid.

One More work day until the weekend. What is everyone plans? I will be practicing on make up, trying to come with a new idea. I'm still working on my website and getting pictures that are acceptable to be put on it. I'm also looking into starting my own youtube.com Channel. I have seen so many different wonderful lady's doing make-up tutorial. That I'm considering putting my work on there was well. I will definitely keep everyone updated.

Colors of the day is going to be an everyday blog for us. I will be writing about the color that I have on and what order I put them on. I have a lot of NYX 10 Color pallets, so some blogs might seem like i'm writing about the same color palate but I'm not. I normally don't use more then 3 colors on my eyes except when I'm in the mood to stand out more then normal.
