As MUA’s, Hairstylists, Fashion Stylists, Designers etc.. We’re often running from job to job. Since we all work in other people’s personal space it’s important to keep our own personal hygiene in check. One would think this is common sense but you’d be surprised how many people I’ve worked with who don’t take the people they’re working with into consideration.
You’ll want to make sure that you don’t have ring around the collar, dirty fingernails, body odor or bad breath. Don’t neglect yourself simply because you’re work work working all day long. Excuse yourself if you’re sweating and get to the rest room. Re-apply your deodorant and blot your face..
The best part of keeping yourself feeling fresh is this little doohicky that Colgate has come out with! It fits easily in any train case, personal little bag, glove compartment etc because it’s only 3.5 inches long. I know it's not brand new but it's definitely overlooked :)
It’s called the ‘Wisp’. The ‘Wisp’ is a single use, disposable toothbrush that you don’t need water to use!! Imagine, being in a cab on your way to meet a client and you can go ahead and freshen up right there!!! Iiiiiiiii know!! It’s got a soft brush on one end and a pick on the other. So you have two different ways of cleaning your teeth.
This little do-dad has breath freshening bead in it that come in peppermint, spearmint and something they call cinnamint..
You can get your Wisp at any drug store or grocery store in the US. It’s only about $2.39 for a two pack and about $7.99 for a 16 pack.

Attention All Designers, Photographers, Models, Magazine Publications, Public Relation Firms, Agents, Brides, etc..(anyone needing a makeup artist really)
Do you have an upcoming photo shoot, fashion show, TV appearance, event, movie or anything of the like coming up? It may slip many people's mind that a make up artist is an essential part of the image that you will want to portray.
We've all seen the before and after images out there of Jane and John Doe or even well known celebrities?? Though some of them looked fine before makeup, ALL of them looked leaps and bounds better AFTER makeup. It's something that can be easily over looked and I'm here to help you STOP AND LOOK.
Granted, for most of your needs the makeup may not be the focal point. I mean if you're on the red carpet, you will most likely want people to notice your great shape in your beautiful clothes and jewelry. But if you're makeup isn't right, chances are you're going to end up on the cover of a tabloid as the joke of the week. We don't want that for you!!
There are so many talented makeup artists out there that it can be an overwhelming thought of trying to FIIIINNDDD one for your particular need. For this reason, I thought I'd bring to your attention this nifty little site called "The Powder Group".
This site is NOT only for makeup artists. I can see how you would think so but it's not. If you were to go to www.ThePowderGroup.com and scroll down to the bottom of the page you will see the following faded words:
About, Events, Artists, Services, Community, Blog, Press, Shop, Join, Contact.
Of these words, the one you will want to focus on is Artists. When you click on that word you will be taken to The Powder Group's list of Makeup Artists from across the GLOBE!! (Yes I did say GLOBE). Just think, if you happen to be shooting on location somewhere and either your makeup artist can't make it or its just not in the budget to bring them with you, you can refer to this page and find yourself a makeup artist in the area to shoot with.
What's MORE! You're not going into it blindly either! Simply click on the person's name on the list and be taken directly to their website. You will then be able to see samples of their work and decide if they're what you're looking for. You could then contact only the selected Make Up Artist that you've selected and avoid the awkwardness of having to tell someone you've gone another way. (lets face it that's an uncomfortable situation for all of us..lol)
So, click on the title of this blog post and bookmark it:) Be sure to pass it on!! Share the wealth of knowledge ya'll...
