Life Update and Announcement

Screen Shot 2015-02-19 at 9.22.16 PM

As many of you know from previous posts, I’m heavily involved in Fashion Week in my area. From makeup to model castings to the TV show circuit, every aspect of this coming week has absorbed my time. I’m so thankful that I have this amazing opportunity to work with other like-minded people in the fashion industry. It really is SO much fun and I’ve met and mingled with the most interesting and beautiful people.

Friday, I had a chance to do 3 model’s makeup for a local TV show in Baton Rouge called Style Savvy. Each of them were extremely sweet and easy to work with. I think I was more nervous than they were! I had 1 hour 45 minutes to do their makeup before air time (luckily it was natural makeup) and things went off without a hitch. The hair stylist and I worked great together, so when I was done with one model, she was done with hers. Perfect!

Anyway, I just wanted to say that I will not be posting for at least another week, however, I’ll be posting pictures on my personal Facebook page and (new) instagram: www.facebook.com/mandyquebedeaux or www.instagram.com/mandyqmua so please stay tuned for that! Thank you all so much for your patience and support.
