"What can this workshop do for me?"

Let me tell you a story about one of my clients. We’ll call her “Morgan”. Morgan is someone I knew from a class that we took together in grad school. She was kind, generous, super helpful, and also very introverted. The more you spoke to her and got to know her, the more she would open up to you. Now some people think I’m constantly looking at people and evaluating their makeup. I promise you I’m not! I notice things, though. And what I noticed about Morgan is that she didn’t wear makeup. You have to remember: makeup is a choice. No one has to wear makeup. I don’t always wear makeup. I don’t think anything positive or negative about people’s choices to wear makeup or not. I simply noticed that Morgan didn’t wear makeup. So fast forward to this past spring when I launched my Makeup Coaching Program (MCP).


I was SO excited when I saw that Morgan joined MCP. As we worked together through the four weeks of the program, I learned that she wanted just a little foundation to even out her skintone. We picked the right one for her, and I also gave her some additional recommendations based on some of her feedback throughout the weeks.


You have to remember. . .Morgan and I are friends. This means I see her, we talk, we get together. And remember. . .I notice people’s choices to wear or not wear makeup. Let me tell you about Morgan. . .


I started to notice that she was wearing her foundation. At first, I didn’t make a fuss because I didn’t want to make her nervous that I was able to see it. I have supersonic sight when it comes to makeup. Of course, I saw it! But after the first few times I let her know that I noticed she was wearing her foundation and that it looked nice. I think we all could do much better about giving compliments to people. They’re free and they do nothing but make people feel good. I’m all for it!


A couple months passed and then I began noticing that every time I saw Morgan she just looked. . . GREAT! She held herself with more confidence, she looked happier, and you just couldn’t help but notice her! And let me tell you. . . the maximum number of products I ever saw on her face at any given time was 3 products: foundation, a bit of mascara, and a little lipgloss.


I’m telling you, I’ve seen Morgan step up in conquering some of her fears, she’s taking chances instead of talking herself out of opportunities, she’s more vocal in small groups, and she is just thriving! When she speaks, people listen.


I want that for YOU!


If you want it too, grab your ticket to the Back to Basics Workshop.


MCP is a program I believe in so much, but I recognize that it is a high price point for many. It’s expensive but worth it! You work one on one with me over a month’s time and get so much valuable insight and a comprehensive recommendation list. But what so many of you are saying you need is the basics: how-tos, easy to follow frameworks of how to approach makeup, and affirmation that you’re doing it right! That is what this workshop is all about, and it’s more affordable than a trip to Target!
