    I was asked to be the official "Beauty Advisor" for the first annual "Model Bootcamp" for The Reneè Agency in Jackson, Ms.  The Reneè Agency is an upcoming modeling agency located in Jackson, Ms. and is headed by Chanelle Reneè (model/graphic artist/model coordinator/web designer,etc).  I was ever so grateful for the opportunity to teach these aspiring and upcoming models the keys to healthy skin and the "Do's and Don'ts" of a model go-see pertaining to make-up application. Here are a few pictures from the event.

Oily Skin Solution: The Inexpensive Foundation PriMeR

Do you have oily skin? Do you wear foundation and it seems to be worn out not too long after applying it? Well, I have a remedy for you that is most likely in your kitchen.  It's MILK OF MAGNESIA.... I know it seems strange but it works! I am a freelance makeup artist and it is just a few tricks of the trade that just happens to be an inexpensive alternative to other foundation primers such as the  MAC prep + prime or the MAC prep + prime creme that can run you from $20 to $37.99 for a 0.5 oz tube.
  Here are the instructions to use MILK OF MAGNESIA as a primer for your foundation:    

  •  Applying MILK OF MAGNESIA to your face with a cotton ball and allowed to dry will act as a base before you to apply your foundation.  
  • Cover all oily areas well (t-Zone...forehead, nose,cheeks & chin)* with  the Milk of Magnesia immediately after you wash and dry your face. 
  • Applying Milk of Magnesia allows your foundation to last much longer on your skin.
