Secondary education can be extremely difficult for some young people. So how do you make your work load and learning experiences manageable and understandable? If you are in middle or high school, or have a child in grades 6 -12, then this post is for you. For professionals in a new working environment or experience, this post will also benefit you.
As an educational professional, student of sociology and a freelance makeup artist, I understand the need for pre-teens and young adults to want to look stylish and fashionable, to be socially accepted, i.e. cool, well-liked and popular in school. Simultaneously, I understand what teachers want from young students and what will make them successful in school and in life. This post is not about fashion or beauty! Although fashion and beauty are important aspects of our lives, in my opinion, it's the body of knowledge that you possess and your ability to critically think to solve problems and creating solutions are equally important - if not more important. Secondary education provides that foundation to gain basic knowledge and to learn how to think critically.

Celebrity Inspired Makeup Looks
I didn't know this artist until I saw a Power 105 FM, a NYC radio station, interview on YouTube. Found out she was signed to Grand Hustle, from Australia; she seemed to have a pretty good work ethic and a good understanding of the music business. You know, I appreciate that in people. When someone is able to articulate and effectively explain what their business entails is a turn on. It's a desirable trait in business - if you are on the up and up, you don't want to conduct business with someone that just fell off the turnip truck, per se. What she said in her interview made me want to listen to her music and watch her videos. I did not like everything I heard and saw, but I applaud her effort, her talent and her drive. In her "Work" video, there is a scene where her makeup is a vamped up natural look with a bright pink pout. Immediately, I downloaded pics and began... "work, work, work, work, working on my shit!" Read more inside to see my interpretation of this look.

A must have staple product that every woman should have in their makeup collection are good eyeliner pencils. Every once and a while, the working class woman can invest in high-end products such as Estee Lauder, Channel, MAC or Lancome; but if you are like me, you want to find budget friendlier options that actually work. Rimmel London has a line of eye pencils that are extremely pigmented, waterproof, smudge proof and long wearing. What's the Rimmel's saying, "Get the London Look!" Get it when you read more inside!

Say What? The top 30 have been announced??? Hold up, hold up. I feel so damn cheated. Ok, let me back up. I was under the impression that entry videos had to get "likes" on their videos and those with the most likes would move on to the top 30!!! But that was completely and utterly wrong and I apologize to anyone for any misleading or non verified information. If you want the low down scoop, then read more inside to find out how this contest really works and what to look for when voting for your top makeup looks!
