Hi from Cincinnati!

Post by Outinapout on Mon Jun 23, 2014 1:53 am

haha, feels so funny introducing myself, but I know people like to "know" who they're talking to on forums, so here goes...

I'm Jessica. I'm a professional makeup artist in Cincinnati, OH who has been doing makeup professionally for....19 years! Which makes me sound way older than I think I am Wink Seriously, though, I started when I was 18 and really just loved everything about it. I did retail for a very long time, with freelancing gigs here and there.

In 2008, when I had my daughter, I left retail and started freelancing commercially, as well as writing a blog to share my experiences (My blog/twitter moniker is OutInAPout, you might also see me on MakeupGeek.com, where I'm a staff member). Alongside makeup, I'm also a BIG skincare freak- I can regularly be found perusing scientific literature, because I am cynical and take very little at face value!

I've been fascinated with face painting for a long time- once my daughter started asking for it at festivals and the like, it was hard for me not to peek over to the painter's kit or ask questions (not always well received!)

I recently decided that I need to expand my artistry into face painting, which was spurred on- not in small part- by the fact that I'm increasingly being roped into face painting by family & friends (if there's face paints brought out in any form, all eyes turn to me!) Don't get me wrong, I'm fascinated by facepainting, but as you all know, it's a VERY different skill set from beauty makeup (and even avant-garde "editorial" style stuff). I actually found it a bit embarrassing because people expect me to be able to do it and I am NOT up to snuff! So....I'm in training again!

This forum has been a great reference for me so far, and I can't wait to share my experiences! Thanks in advance, see you on the boards!

Thanks FF, I've been lurking for a week or so and can already see what a great community this is! Now the challenge is not letting the forum suck up all of my time Smile

Awesome- it's always good to meet someone local on boards like this! Any good local resources for paint supplies?

The colourful rectangle in the above column header is a link to the FacePaintForumShop. The prices are competitive, and the shipping is FAST. Metina packages my orders really well.

Happy Painting!

Thanks Fesspenter, I definitely will check out Metina's shop soon! I was hoping A New Face might know of a brick and mortar in our area that actually stocks face painting goodies- I'm very impatient! Wink However, aside from a shop I happened to find on the opposite end of the state, I haven't had much luck, so...
