The FACE behind Color My Face

Thats ME ~_^
Hey there darlings! First I'd like to welcome all the new views to the Color My Face blog and page. I adore you all and appreciate your support from the bottom of my heart <3

As promised, I would do little blurbs here and there until the first Highlight Feature post but I thought it only right to properly introduce myself and give you all a clear picture of what Color My Face is and will be! 

For starters, my name is Rashida and I'm a freelance makeup artist from NY. I've worked professionally as a freelance artist for over four years now on clients from the small stage to Broadway, local productions to national TV. And I absolutely LOVE every minute of it!

As an artist I try my best to expand my knowledge of the makeup industry always, so there's never a time that I won't be caught reading, trying or buying something beauty related. In my opinion, as a MUA you can never learn enough. 

Recently, I've taken on the role of teacher with the Color My Face Makeup Artistry classes. You can find that story on my first blog post Eeeep, I'm blogging too!!!!!, and now this blog. As a whole I have a vision of Color My Face being a collective beauty community. Not just your average read my blog, watch my video, I am the end all to be all. But rather an interactive entity where your questions can be answered and taken seriously. In my classes no question is ever too small or insignificant, and that's the direction I'd like to go with this blog. Your questions, comments and request inspire me and from there I can shape Color My Face into not only what I want but what YOU ask for!

I am also a fan of the uncommon. I like to introduce people to products they may have never considered using or never even heard of. So do expect to see some "not so norm" suggestions, but trust me a you'll love them just as much as I do! There will also be times where it won't be about just us ladies... that's right, I have a few things planned just for the GUYS!!!! For my younger audience, a teen panel is on its way as well ^_^

Well, now that you know a little more about me I do hope to learn more about you....let's be friends! Comment below, let me know what you would like to see, the more suggestions the better. The follow up to this will be a product review on Steam Cream, and my first video tutorial. Question is what do you want to see? Eyes, lips, full face? You choose and that's what I'll do! 

Random extra pic of myself....just cuz ;)

Hope to hear from you all. Once again thank you ALL for your continued support!

Later Poptarts ~_^
