As I am going through all my old blog posts and updating my online portfolio, I came across this photo. For the past 6 years, I am always asked how long I have been face/body-painting or how I got into doing this as a profession. 

I was in hair school when this was taken. It was photoshoot day and we all had the opportunity to come up with a makeup theme and we would have professional pictures taken for our portfolios. While everyone was doing glamour or wedding makeup, I was the only one who decided to do half a sugar skull. 

Now that it is 2017, as I look back, I can say that it has changed my life. This is what started my passion in face and body painting. I am so thankful for the opportunities this field has opened up to me. 

It just goes to show that you never know that one single moment, a single day, a single person, a single idea can change your life. 

If you are not willing to risk the unusual, you will have to settle for the ordinary. Jim Rohn
