Henna Time

Henna Knowledge: For those who do not know what Henna is. 
Henna has been around since the Bronze Ages and it comes from a flower called Lawsonia Inermis. Henna is a natural temporary tattoo that stains the skin to reddish-brown, orange, or brown. If you ever decide to get a henna tattoo or buy some for yourself, remember that there is no such thing as Black Henna, without being natural or tampered with hair dye.

Jen's experience with Henna:
The first time that I encounter Henna was in the International Make-up Artist Trade Show (IMATS) and decided to buy one tube, to try it out. Next thing you know, I became addictive to Henna, and so I decided to do my research to find more henna. I was able to obtain more henna from, ebay, and city of Artesia. So far IMATS has been the best henna, and I do not remember the name of the distributor who sold it to me. So I will continue my search for the best henna.

When buying henna there is two popular choices:
1)    In powder form, where you can make your henna your way.
2)    Pre-made. (It looks like toothpaste in a tube)
-If you want more information about Henna click the hyperlink below.

Here is some of my artwork with Henna
This is fresh henna, just finish the application

When adding henna onto sole of your feet or  your palms, the henna turns to an orange color.

Getting ready for Halloween

Halloween is just couple of days away and Jen decided to become a cat for Halloween. 
So she decided to shop at five different location; Cinema secret, Target, Sephora, 99 Cent Store, and Fazmataz. Out of these five places Fazmataz was the best body paint makeup, because the colors that you see on the makeup pallets, is the color you actually get, when applied to the face. The application is easy and fast, you only need a brush and a cup of water to apply.

See the hyperlink below to learn more and purchase Fazmataz products.


Body paint from Fazmataz

Jen used a concealer brush and applied a bit of water

Then she slightly smeared the brush across two colors.

Ready for application.

Colors are accurate to the makeup cases.
Other Results

Thats Jen on the left side and her boyfriend on the right side.

Edwin as a pirate. lol

Salon Centric FREEEEEE!! Education

Jen walked in Salon Centric and overheard that they offer classes, next thing you know Jen had a list of classes containing: Color, Haircut, Product knowledge ..etc

The only sad thing about these classes, is that you have to register at Salon Centric, meaning that you must have a license from State Board (Cosmetology, Barbering..etc) or a student trying to get their license. So no classes for Raeshonda.. lol

If you want more information, you can call Salon Centric or click below for more information about Salon Centric.

Jen who was accompanied by friends attended this class.

Jen's review about the class:
-Brenda Orduro did a fantastic job in explaining everything from product, personal advice, application and lots more. I honestly believe that this class is worth more than $40 dollars but it is offered to people for FREE. So take advantage and see if  a career as a makeup artist is for you.

Why we are here??

Jennifer Ramos and Raeshonda Bowser

We are currently taking a ISDS class at Cal State Fullerton. Our objective for this blog is to explain to the world what Beauty and Cosmetology is from our point of view.

Hi my name is Jennifer Ramos and I'm currently going to two school; Cal State Fullerton and Pomona Cosmetology School. My days are busy and can be very stressful, at sometimes, but in overall I love life and I love teaching other my knowledge in cosmetology world and that is why I decided to make this blog, beside being a group project for my ISDS class.

Hi my name is Raeshonda i'm currently a full-time student and I work part-time at the Cheesecake Factory.
I am hostess so when I am at work I like to look presentable to all of the guest. Although  I do my makeup and hair I am not the best, so most of my days I like to watch the beauty guru's on youtube. What I would like to learn from this project is how to increase my knowledge in makeup and nails. So that I can be confident  and beautify myself  in a way that is easy and fast, because the college life puts a time constraint on my time for beauty.
