My third artist Trish wishes to keep her work private. With much respect to her model of course I will do so. Her final piece was stunning. I am so happy for everyone and what they created... and also what they overcame internally so they had the freedom to paint.
I would love to share the heartfelt thank you I received from Trish... This was such an affirmation to me that this course DOES make an impact and difference. It's not a course to come and get a Body Art image for your folio... it's a new way to think. The body art is a bi-product and bonus.
For Becca – Thank You
On Sunday I completed the 2 day course: “Body Art For Makeup Excellence” by Becca Gilmartin.
I am a Makeup Artist, but had never attempted Body Painting.
I signed up for the course as I had seen Becca presenting at IMATS in 2012 and thought that she was one of the most talented and inspirational presenters I had ever seen. To say that her presentation at IMATS was mesmerizing would be an understatement. So when Becca promoted her course, I had to go.
What I got out of the course is hard to describe in detail, I went into the course believing that I was too old, too tired and that it was too late to further my career in the industry, but it would be fun to body paint. What I came away with, was that I am a truly talented, energetic, creative person and that most importantly; I create the environment, the calmness, the opportunities and the ability to achieve everything that I dream of and so I did.
It was not all plain sailing, the preconditioning in me crept in at times from nowhere, the overwhelming, “I cant do this”, "what am I doing here", battle reared its ugly head early on the second day. After removing myself and having a mental fight of huge proportions where the flight was more overwhelming then the fight, I convinced myself that “yes I was talented, unique and could do this”.
So what did I learn, what has been holding me back? Well its not my age, its not my talent, its not my creativity, its me, only I truly believed I wasn’t good enough and now I know I am.
If you are a makeup artist, if you believe you are good but not good enough , then book in, and go to one of Becca’s Courses. You will learn body art techniques, but the most important thing you will learn is about believing in you.
Thanks Becca, you are amazing and have probably changed my life forever.
