I hope our readers enjoyed the dating advice in last week’s column. I got feedback from readers, and some said that learning how to find a date and get a date aren’t as easy as it seems. Some of the comments left at acweekly.com included: “Dating advice? I don’t need advice, I need a man!” and ”Date? What’s that?”
Listen ladies, if you don’t put yourself out there then you are not going to find someone.
Think to yourself (and men you can do this as well; just switch around the man and woman) about the type of guy you would like to meet. What does he look like? What is his occupation? Where does he hang out? What activities does he like? Then think about the various local places that your ideal person could be found. That’s where you need to be. Is there an activity that you love? Well take a class, do something different with your time. See where it takes you. You are only expanding your horizons and at the same time putting yourself out there to meet someone new.
In the meantime, you should also know how to properly prepare for a date. This can be a tedious task because, of course, we want to have a great outfit, accessories, makeup, etc. I could write pages on this and believe me I have a few great places that I want you to know about, but right now I am going to focus on preparing your look by starting with makeup.
There’s going to be a cosmetic education program coming up on March 7-8.
Ladies, you should check this out. Motives by Loren Ridinger — remember the cosmetics line I wrote about around Christmas? — is going to be holding a training at the Clarion Hotel and Convention Center in Pleasantville with the national director of training for Motives by Loren Ridinger, Jodi Usher.
At the March 7 training, you will learn about cosmetic application and technique (9am-3pm). You will not only learn about the proper applications and techniques, but also new information regarding the cosmetic industry. The cost is $50. Then there will be a workshop called “Getting the Look,” (4-6:30pm, $15), a hands-on workshop to build confidence and improve your application skills. You will develop your technique and start to create your “perfect look.”
It’s going to be a long day, but it will be so much fun that I bet at the end you’ll be asking for more. Well, you’re in luck as there will be a second and different training the following day on Monday, March 8. You will start with a “Custom Cosmetics Training” (9am-3pm, $50). There you will have added hands-on experience with both custom minerals and custom blend liquid. I have the custom blend and it is fantastic.
Then from 4-6:30pm ($15) it’s “All about Eyes” where you can master the applications for each shape and color.
Every woman I know has a secret desire to learn how to do their makeup properly. And who wouldn’t want to learn about the famous smoky-eye look or the barely-there natural look? This is your opportunity. I’ll be there. Just contact Usher at 214-2626 or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
I am probably one of the most low-maintenance girls when it comes to doing hair and makeup, but I have to say that this makeup is great for your skin and it can’t hurt to be educated, right? You never know when these techniques will come in handy.
