The Next Breakthrough into the World of Blogging: Her Name is heidistylhix

Hello hello hello!!! My name is Heidistylhix and welcome to my blog page!! Before telling you about myself, I need to show my appreciation and thank Sherry Blossom (follow her on Twitter @MsSherryBlossom, YouTube: SherryBlossomBeauty, and her blog page Sherry Blossom Beauty ) for inspiring me to become a part of the blog world.She didnt exactly suggest it, she just told me to do it. Sherry Blossom: THANK YOU! This bright spirited, energetic, humble, informative, humorous young lady has answered all of my questions, given me words of wisdom, and has showered me with a wealth of makeup info that I will always be grateful for.

About me: I am a proud New Yorker (from Queens and Hempstead). Fashion has always been a part of my life. As a child my fashion sense was mostly geared toward decorating and clothing which taught me to have an eye for detail and ability to mix and coordinate colors. I currently attend a cosmetology program in south Florida. I will return north (I need 4 seasons in my life) but will take a course to receive certification in makeup artistry before doing so. My school focuses mostly on hair so 98.5% of what I know about makeup is from what I took upon myself to learn outside of school. In doing so, I have met with people on all levels in the industry and I'll be sure to mention them as my blogging venture goes on. Let me say it now: I am a beginner...just breaking into the world of makeup, and I'm taking the process to pro by storm! SO, teach me teach me teach me!!! I want to learn, love learning, and I don't have a limit to it.

I have been working in the medical field for about 15 years now so teaching is second nature to me. I do it sometimes without even realizing it. I greatly enjoy the look on faces when guests see themselves in the mirror after Ive done their hair and/or makeup but love the reaction I get after showing them how to recreate and maintain the look at home. SO, ask me ask me, yes, ask me! What I don't know, I will do my best to find out. I have no problems with asking questions and doing research.

Asking and teaching. Yes. *heart warming up* I MUST thank Taryll Atkins for allowing me to rummage, search, and dive into her makeup case, and I must add: WITHOUT supervision! Have you seen her portfolio??? I mean, I know that I have an untrained eye, but umm, ya'll need to check this out: http://www.taryllatkins.com

I love to travel, both within and outside the US. Schooling has slowed that down but once I am licensed, I am definitely willing to travel to do freelance work. A friend of mine calls me the "Roaming Genome" and my dad calls me a "Rolling Stone". The beginning of phone calls with him and close friends frequently includes, "Where are you now?" Plane, car, train, bus, shoe...whatever will get me somewhere to experience something new or known, I'm using it.

What I plan to do with my blog: Gosh, I'm so sporadic I'm afraid to answer. How about this: I will INCLUDE skin and hair care (Ive been natural for about 11 years and I know that a LOT of you are in transition), hairstylist and barbering info, and of course makeup artistry into my blog posts. Whatever else pops up, I hope that you enjoy as much as I will sharing it all! I was in attendance at the MAKEUP SHOW NYC and will elaborate in the near future...hmmm...topic for post #2! Mine may not be as exciting as more established MUAs since I went on a student budget (Ha!) and a shopping list for INGLOT. It was my first experience at a big industry show and it was PRICELESS, but I will be better prepared to take it to the next level in 2012 and take more pictures.

With all that said, I look forward to interacting with all of you. I can be contacted through email: heidistylhix@live.com as I have every intention of gettin live in this industry, and found on Twitter @heidistylhix . I don't post much on Twitter because Ive been using it to learn from others (so follow who I follow), BUT I have a feeling that will soon change. Then of course, there is the comment section below.

Thank You for reading to the end my first post! The next one is already formulating in my ever churning head. Until next time: Wash your hands and CREATE!

I am beyond excited to see that your know going to transcribe this journey. Make your mark in the bloggersphere. One day we will look back on this first post and laugh hysterically because neither of us will be able to believe how truly successful you will become! Keep up the great work and continue to let your passion propel you. Teach and ask! Love it!
