Glamour, lights, excitement . . . not exactly! The truth is, as much as I enjoy my job and all that it entails, I thrive on doing work but not so much on those things that are required of me when the camera’s not rolling – I’m talking red carpets and photoshoots; sure that’s all well and fun, but those things can be rather nerve racking. Edit that: VERY nerve racking. What do I wear? How should I do my hair? WHAT DO I DO WITH MY HANDS?!

Seriously, what am I supposed to do with my hands?
I’ve started working with a stylist, but when it comes to my hair and makeup I tend to do it myself unless I’m going for something highly stylized that I may not have experience with. That being said, I now have a full on professional makeup case full of goodies and I regularly buy new color palettes and tools of the trade to experiment with. Those experiments can add up to a lot of money. Fortunately for me, my favorite foundation is inexpensive and is carried at CVS, so it’s always easy to find and doesn’t hurt my budget. Same with my hair stuff. You may recall that I like to style my hair using TRESemmé Keratin Smooth (another awesome find).
