Jazziebabycakes, my imaginary friend aka Muse

I found my Youtube/Tumblr muse, the one and only Jazziebabycakes, a few years back after scrolling through cute makeup tutorials on the web and I saw this girl wearing the most vivid rainbow colors that only a drag queen could pull off. But she looked good and I was amazed by the aesthetic of her techniques. The more I visited her I visited her page, the more I felt inspired to wear makeup. Except the difference between her and I, she actually has skills and knowledge of cosmetics. I never wore any make up growing up and the most I do is mascara, eye liner and lip gloss. People tell me that I shouldn't wear any makeup because I have "natural beauty", but I'm still curious about what I can do to transform my face. It's not that I am unhappy with my appearance, it's just that I get bored with my bare face. I wish I could learn the basics of makeup as a result of me becoming a young lady and learning about appearance. Her look is what I go for when it comes to fashion and inspiration. Maybe one day, I'll learn how to contour pink cheeks or do a peacock eye. I need to know which products I can use that are cost effective and doesn't make my skin break out.

Remembering the Zac Posen days

I couldn't help, but post these fabulous photos I took with a few of the models at the ZP Fall Fashion Show. By the looks of it, you can tell that I was living in the moment. I would do anything to go back to that exact day and relive it over and over.

I interned for Zac during the summer of 2012 and early 2013 and I experienced such wonderful moments in my life when it came to bonding with the interns, working with the head designers and seamstresses, and learning all the strategies of what it takes to run a fashion house. More and more I grow appreciate from the positive side of the fashion industry, both Business and Creativity. I have been pursuing fashion for most of my life and even when I'm not feeling my best, I try to go back to the experiences of when I interned for such a great design family. Now that I have
graduated the Fashion Institute of Technology, I feel encouraged to pursue my aspirations and really go for what I envision in life. My inspiration is constantly stirring up ideas for me to transform works of art into actual creations. Yes, this all seems corny, but I won't see my ambitions as being unrealistic. I'm still doing my thing and I don't seethe option to give up.

Check out the video I recorded at the show!!! Sorry for the bad quality...
