Fresh Faces

last week i had the opportunity to work at the Clinique Fresh Faces Tour on the USC campus. it was amazing.  Clinique and Vogue partnered to bring this amazing event to life for the second year.  the event was free and open to everyone...a make over, hair touch up and photo shoot as well as an opportunity  for each girl to enter to win an all expenses paid internship in NYC with clinique and/or teen vogue, not to mention a spread in vogue!

as make up artists,  we we only had 10 minutes to apply a full face of make-up!! at first i thought it would be impossible, but somehow we all pulled it off. the first day, the team arrived at 8 am. we got our stations organized and we were open for "business" at 10am. i did my last make-over at 6:30, with only a 20 minute break. on day two i was out the door by 6:30am and ready for business at 8.  the second day was a little slower ( ESPN game day happened to be on campus).  the event was over by 3:30 and i was on my way home by 4.
 i estimated that i did about 97 makeovers those two days.  i think that is more than i have done in the last year!  i don't believe i have ever worked so hard in my life, and had so much fun doing it!
I was also able to meet and speak with corporate  Cliniquers  from NYC as well as Teen Vogue.
I still don't understand how i could be left so exhausted but ready to do it all over again if i had the chance!

this tour is traveling onward throughout the US. if you are near one of these events...GO! it is a blast and you get to meet and talk with professionals who can answer any questions you may have about your future. so cool.
