So here it goes!

I would like to take a moment and welcome you to Beat Around The Brush.  While I have been a busy makeup artist for many years, a busy beauty blogger I have not.  Well, stranger things have happened I guess. So here it goes!

I may as well start by giving a bit of a dissertation about my blog.  (Wow, that sounded stuffy!) 
This blog is not intended to give you all the up-to-date beauty trends and products or where to snatch them up at a discount. Don’t get me wrong, I will do that too, but the blog is geared primarily for makeup artists, aspiring makeup artists, or those who just want to be their own professional. 
My goal is to create a place where makeup artists can go to see what’s happening in the business now, what changes are coming, and what the future holds. I want to share the things many artists don’t want each other to know. This is more of a “what the pros do but don’t tell you” type of blog … The Smoke and Mirrors of it all, I guess you could say. Beat Around the Brush is exactly what I want to do with my fellow artists.
I hope it will educate, enlighten and inspire artists of all levels, just as so many artists have inspired me. So, I invite everyone to share their experiences. There will be tutorials and “tips and tricks” of the trade happening here too, but, honestly, it is the “what do you do when” moments that really make someone a pro.
And that’s what I want to share.
I have a great experience to share in my next post. I hope you will share yours as well.
