WHAT REAL MAKEUP ARTISTS LOOK LIKE

If you have been following my thread on Facebook, you will know what happened when I went on a "Julia Sugarbaker" rant about beauty bloggers and the dreaded selfies post. Real makeup artists aren't always painted. Well sometimes we are, but most of the times we are not.

Are you sick of the narcissistic over the top selfies that most beauty bloggers post? Me too. Some of today's beauty bloggers are just creating a paid for advertorial on something a company told them to say. It's become too promotional and the selfie/trend/social media dominates what real makeup artists actually do everyday....

Take a look at what REAL working makeup artists look like most of the time...and some of my friends & clients.

I am gonna let you in on a little secret. Most professional makeup artists hate to wear makeup most of the time. Don't get me wrong, we can clean up very well but don't be fooled. We don't walk around with a face full of makeup. Makeup is our job and our profession. It's not a hobby. We get dirty, we sweat all in the name of our gorgeous clients!

The gorgeous professional makeup artist, Sarah Elizabeth is from Minnesota! Love her and her gorgeous skin. Sarah works full time as a makeup artist and isn't afraid to tell the world what she looks like most of the time. She knows the difference between real beauty and bullshit.

She works crazy long hours and probably has the longest list of celebrity clients I know. She knows the difference between beauty and bullshit.

Celebrity makeup artist Michelle Jackson is a fabulous makeup artist in LA! She works all the time. When she does have a day off it's spent pool side, makeup free and rocking her sexy mane! She doesn't apologize for shit! She knows the difference between real beauty and bullshit.

Don't let her fool you...most days she pulls the old trick of sun glasses and fabulous accessories look when she isn't feeling very pretty...when in doubt, cover that shit up...in more ways than one....

My peep from Colorado, Makeup Artist Brandy Rich is also tired of the "Insta" artist selfies who take themselves too serious. She is still hot! She just worked a 12 hour day on a commercial job. She knows the difference between real beauty and bullshit.

But it all started with this "Selfie" this morning from fab makeup artist Shana Beals. Makeup artists are too busy making others beautiful.....I think she is incrediballs! She knows the difference between real beauty and bullshit.

My love bug makeup artist C Eden Di Bianco told me....

"#iwokeuplikethis and I'm going to spend my day like this because I'm a beauty artist, not a Barbie doll and I have to clean brushes, do invoices, and email my clients. Not spend my time crafting the ultimate self image so that people buy in to wanting to BE me instead of wanting to let me help them discover how to be THEM."

She knows the difference between real beauty and bullshit.

REAL makeup artists don't have time to do youtube videos, tutorials and plaster themselves all over social media! Why? Cause we are working. Get to know a REAL makeup artist in your city!

I also had everyday women who are beautiful even without makeup get in on the action. From my gym to people on the streets, everyone posed for their real beauty "selfie"

One of my trainers, Dana at Orange Theory Fitness in Evanston. She comes in with a ponytail and kicks my ass. She looks gorgeous EVERYDAY. Why? cause she is strong as shit and she will kick my ass if I misbehave. THAT is #TRUEBEAUTY

So the next time you see that beauty blogger who knows nothing about beauty except how good they look on their social media or feed, get to know a real makeup artist.

Beauty Bloggers....Tell us what is real, don't sell us shit because it looks good on YOU. It's not organic and it's not "trusted beauty advice". It's a repackaged advertorial. (Thanks, Eden). Educate us, show the look on others. Tell us why what you say matters!

Give us substance. Tell us what will & won't work to your audience. Stop posting your selfies all the time. Give us real facts! Tell us the difference between beauty and bullshit!

XOXOXO Sonia
