Going to start this one off by saying this is not being written to downplay anyone’s artistry. Simply to offer an understanding of why a licensed artist is your best option.The reason artists are granted licenses is because they did two things. First they completed their education which entails all aspects of the beauty industry. It is no so glitzy to learn about diseases of the scalp, fungus on the toes or skin irregularities but none the less a necessity! Secondly the artist must apply for a state license and pass their state board test. This test entails a practical & written portion and lasts approximately 8 hours. If both parts are successfully completed a license is granted & required to be kept current for the duration of the technicians career. Maintaining a license means being held accountable for all procedures performed not only to clients but to the state. If an artist does not adhere to all health, safety, and sanitation regulations their liscensed can be suspended or revoked.
What does this matter to you? Everything!! Sanitation is key in preventing the spread of diseases. How do you feel about someone using a dirty brush on your hair? Toe separators from someone else’s feet? A lipstick that has touched a strangers lips? Maybe a foundation brush used on skin with open lesions? Disgusting, I know. An unlicensed artist has no social or state responsibility. They have no risk or care if they cause harm because they only report to themselves. Would you let a “doctor” who taught themselves how to perform surgery by watching Grey’s Anatomy & reading Wikipedia put you under the knife? Then why let an un-licensed artist play with your health .

Been using Clinique’s Even Better Moisturizer with spf 20 about 3 times a week for the past 4 months ( The reason I was not using it everyday was because I usually use a tinted moisturizer to help even out skin tone under my make-up). Moisturizer should be used after cleansing and toning once/twice daily.When you first apply about a nickel sized amount it does feel a bit heavy, but after about 5 minutes it settles. The moisturizer sits on the skin well, doesn’t feel greasy, or like it’s clogging your pores. Not only does it offer the daily benefits of moisturization and sun protection it also helps even out skin tone. It minimized redness & appearance of scars. Its suited for all skin types (mine being extremely sensitive, acne-prone & oily) and actually holds true to what the label reads, skin tone correcting moisturizer with sun protection.
