I'm Inspired: Makeup Artist Sam Fine

Yesterday, Marian at Haute Travels put together a wonder class and mixer with the great Sam Fine! There was no way that I was going to miss this one!

Sam Fine is one of the best makeup artist and has touched the faces of so many celebrities such as Iman, Tyra Banks, Patti Labelle, Gabrielle Union, Vanessa Williams, Monique, Jennifer Hudson, and the list goes on.

During the class, Sam took the time to answer questions from the audience as well as a give a live demonstration of how he applies makeup to a women of color. I took notes during the class and my video below highlights some of the things I took away from his class. Also check out some of the photos I took during the event.

Autumn Beauty Brunch Recap

The Panel (MiMi J, LaToicha of Luxe Tips, Ren of Makeup by RenRen, Bret of Webdevils, Mattie of Mattieologie, Mae of Natural Chica)
I'm happy to say that I had another successful beauty brunch with an amazing group of people. I indeed learned from this one, especially about SEO and Wordpress from panelist Bret Phillips. Check out some helpful links and advice I got from Bret to assist with understanding SEO and blogging tips.

- great site about coverting traffic into sales and leads, Derek is
one of the smartest people doing the blog thing right now, pay
attention to what he says :)

- Thesis is a WordPress theme framework, but their blog that I've
linked always has amazing information in regard to running your own
blog and doing it right

- one of the forrunners in the blogging world.  He puts out a TON of
content, but go through his Categories(Bloggering, human business,
social media, etc) and you'll find crazy amounts of helpful content.
Definitely check out http://www.chrisbrogan.com/best-of/

- she now has a lot of guest posts on her site, but the content is
still great. She's basically the 'social media' queen.

- another blogger powerhouse with a crazy amount of content and
resources for bloggers. CHECK THE Categories

- more blogging goodness, more content than you can shake a stick at

I recommend using something like Google Reader or some other RSS feed
reader, add all these sites to it, then you can check them all in the
same place.

Also remember, if you do not have Analytics installed on your site, be
it Google or any other kind of traffic reporting, you are missing out
on a wealth of information about your readers.

Great stuff right?!!

Also check out some of the collected photos from the brunch (compliments of BabyShopaholic and MUA Monica Eung) as well as a video done by makeup artist/blogger Beauty Bott.
