I can't believe that April 1st is right around the corner. Spring is already here. I was just getting adjusted to those early, dark nights and the long, dark and cold mornings.
This past month has been an exciting month for me. Half-way through the month, I retired from my eight-year reign of working as a bartender. I am now working in the beauty industry full-time as a Beauty Advisor. I've been spending my free time updating my blog on a regular basis. My Life as an Esthetician is now located at it's very own domain name. The blog also has it's own Facebook page. I finally have time to do the things that I love like research topics, write and publish posts, take pictures and attend special beauty events.
Here is a look back at My Life as an Esthetician's top five most popular posts of March 2011:
#5: Awesome Tool: MAC Foundation Finder
#4: Makeup Look: Naked Palette
The infamous Urban Decay Naked Palette. I've never met a palette before with such a cult following. The Naked Palette is more popular than the homecoming queen in high school wish she could ever be. I love this palette because the twelve matte and shimmery eyeshadow colors create endless possibilities for a natural, neutral or smokey eye look, for either day or night. I despise this palette because its constantly out of stock. I receive several calls a day from clients asking when the palette will be back in stock. Clients then demand to know why there never seem to be enough quantities to go around.
#3: Beautiful, Clear Skin Starts With Clean Skin
#2: Benefit b.right! Radiant Skincare Event
And the most popular post in March was....envelope please.......
#1: Put Your Spin on Skin with the International Dermal Institute
Annet King, the Director of Global Education for Dermalogica and IDI. Annet's main focus for the evening was to discuss how skincare professionals are able to market themselves and do their own PR without needing to hire a fancy person or company to do it for them. I walked away from the event with a wealth of information and a ton of ideas. The evening also helped remind me why I became an esthetician in the first place.
