So a little about how I was able to meet her- I work in the Murray store for RC Willey, and I help with the floor staging. It's a physical job, but I have fun with the team I work with. We all get a long- its almost like a little family. Interior decorating wasn't what I started doing when I was hired on with RC Willey- but I have enjoyed the change of positions. I have learned a lot working in my department- but I have a long way to go in terms of designing. I took a class in HS about Interior Design but I never really got into it. My teacher wasn't the greatest- so my first real exposure to this field of work wasn't a positive one. Given the opportunity to learn from the people I work with has intrigued me to pursue some education in this career path. Not full time- but more like a hobby. :) So that's how I met Paige- working for RC Willey.

My grandfather has an eye for beauty, always has. He loves capturing the outdoors- freezing a moment in time. He stages his home beautifully, looks as though a woman set up the whole place. This ability he does natually- he passed those traits down to his daughters and grandaughters. For that I am truely greatful.

Beauty is defined as ethnic identity, female identity, personal identity. As well as what your role should look like in society and being who you are supposed to be. Natural beauty is variable- it's dependent on your culture; some say it's no makeup, that it's facial alterations to look like ancestors or animals for story telling, or to fill a role in society.
Although you can't stop aging- the media images in our society imply differently. Body modification can be taboo in some cultures. The body is seen as a gift or as sacred and should not be altered from what your parents or [god] gave you. Beauty is defined on how you feel when you look in the mirror or being comfortable in your own skin. It's a personal decision or out look, that can be influenced by society or culture.
As a Master Esthetician and Makeup Artist I see and hear all about what women and men want to do to improve the appearance of their skin. There are many non invasive treatments as well as many products to help with the skins overall look. They range from basic facials to intensive peels and camouflage makeup.
My definition of Beauty is what you see your self as when you achieve your goals and aspirations. I have personal belief in that. In those moments I realized who I was and saw the beauty with in. You can make the outer shell “look” like what you want, but it's what goes on inside that completes it.
When I have done a make over on someone who isn't excited or loves who they are- it doesn't matter what put on them; they still don't have the glow of someone who loves or likes who they are. It's amazing to me what I see in people as they feel better about them selves when they leave my hands. In this industry our hands our like gold- they do wonders for others- the human touch is the most healing of all remedies. I truly believe that.

I found these tips in the Sephora book, a new beauty bible. If you haven't picked one up I suggest you do for a mere $27.95. In here are some are tips I have grown up with and others are new to me- do you have any 'Double Agent Quick Fixes' ?
Toilet paper instead of blotting paper
A knife instead of a mirror to check your lipstick
Nail polish to prevent a run from spreading in your stockings
Tooth brush as an eyebrow groomer
Hair conditioner as shaveing cream
Matchbook cover as a nail file
Brow tint to cover grey hairs or as a root touch up in between visits to the colorist
Pressed or loose powder on roots of hair to absorb oil/grease
Hand lotion to fight frizzies
Cold tea bgs to depuff eyes
Olive oil on patches of ultradry skin
These I didn't find, but are my contribution to the list:
Low heat setting on your hair dryer to help break in new shoes.
Blush as an eyeshadow
The swatches were done 2x's- they are high metallic. Terracotta on top (orangish), Amythest bottom left, Gold leaf in middle, safari on right. Liners look similar in this photo- but they are different! L-R BlackBrown, Moss, and Copper.
Utla and Sehpora are opening another location each, in Sandy and Murray- they are both even closer than their origional locations. YEAH! Now all we need is a MAC store- not just a counter!
