Welcome to my first official blog! This is my first beauty blog ever and I couldn't be more excited. As a makeup artist I am constantly experimenting with new looks and new products so I figured this is a great way for me to pass on my beauty knowledge!
So first let me tell you a little bit about myself. My name is Danielle Restivo and I am a certified makeup artist in New York State. For me makeup always came naturally. Highschool I would come home after school and instead of doing homework I went straight to youtube and watched as my favorite youtube gurus created these amazing looks. I mean I was stunned on what they can do! My two favorite were Makeup Geek and Kandee Johnson (they are still my favorite to this day). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GDcQJ32zmv I mean this video alone will blow you away. Anyway I experimented with makeup quite a bit. I would come into class with dark smokey eyes and colorful lips everyday. Yes people use to comment on how much makeup I wore but I didn't care. What people didn't understand was I wasn't putting on all this makeup to look pretty, I was discovering my career. Fast forward to a couple years after Highschool I finally got certified and started my journey to becoming a makeup artist.
There is nothing I love more then making someone feel good about themselves and that is what makes me love my job so much. I am putting my two passions together and calling it my job! I am going to do my best to post twice a week, still haven't decided on set days. Anything you would like me to post about or any questions feel free to comment! Have an awesome day! :)
