Star Struck! ( A Sorta Long Read)

Recommended Posts

m_bb05009091f550247f7c326b35a95e3a.jpgOkay, so you all may have or may have not heard of this celeb makeup artist by the name of Marcus Geeter. Well, I was reading a hair mag one night and saw where he did a featured article. So I decided to look him up on the internet. What I found was his bio and website and a direct email address and build up the guts to email him. I really didn't expect to hear back from him because you know how some famed people are. Anyways, what I got was a response the very next day in my inbox!


**Keep reading for the emails we shared**



Excerpt from my email:

Hello Marcus,


My name is Michelle and I live in Southern Alabama. There are not alot of opportunities in my city to "break into" the beauty business.... I had the privilege of seeing some of your work and I'm always inspired by Black artists like yourself and wanted to ask you as an aspiring artist, what are some ways to establish yourself in such a vast industry like the beauty business?


Thanks so much in advance!


His response:




Thanks for your nice email.


Because you do not live in a major market, you may want to think of relocating or brand yourself as the go to person in your community, which is probably the wiser move do the economy.


Many blessing to you.






I soon realised that this guy is truly inspirational and so genuine. On top of that, I am following him on Twitter and this morning I go to my twitter page and find that he's following me back! How cool is that?


Anyways, I thought that I would share with you all because I couldn't keep in it! smile.gif

That's really awesome! It's so refreshing to see famous people take the time out of their busy lives to interact with fans and send something back other than a standard form or pre-written reply.

Ha ha, somebody else picked up on it.


Anyhow, I think it's awesome that he responded to you. It's very rare to find someone in his position who's not caught up in their own shine. And I like his advice too - very well thought and useful.

That is so cool! It shows he has a genuine character and actually cares about his followers. I know they get a lot of junk mail from fans trying to get a response, but to actually see one of them reply when they realize someone is being serious and looking for advice based on their own success and experience is awesome. It shows they care about their fans.

    • Nice. Thanks for sharing this. Wearing makeup is common place in today's society, worn for anything from a day at work to a formal night out. Makeup may do magical things, but it doesn't have to be a mystery. Applying a basic, natural look doesn't require a lot of skill or tools. You can do lots of the blending with your fingertips, and choose to leave out certain products if they don't appeal to you. So have no fear: enjoy the process and your fresh, glowing face!
    • What is a good ,lightweight and affordable sunscreen? Any Suggestions...
    • There are so many recipes to make clear lip gloss at home. The easiest I say is using plain tocopherol T50 vitamin E oil in a roll on bottle. It was works wonders. Apart from glossy lips it heals dry chapped lips. A cheaper version of the gloss is castor oil. Castor oil is thick and glossy. A little of beeswax or/and shea butter too can be added. A recipe with castor oil, shea butter and castor oil. Castor oil 8 grams Shea butter 1 gram Beeswax 1 gram. I know it is quite difficult to make with such small measurements. Can multiply with 3 or 5 and you get 3 or 5 lip gloss roll on. Take all the three ingredients in a microwave save bowl, heat in short span of 5 seconds till everything is melted. Add flavour oil. (A lip safe flavour oil can be added for some fragrance and taste. Just a drop or two is more than enough for each roll on bottle.) Let it cool. Fill in roll on bottles or tubes or just any smallest container you have.
    • You should also heat your eyelash curler with a hair dryer before curling. Helps them stay curled for longer. Just make sure the eyelash curler isn’t too hot before using it.  
    • With my emotions my skin is drying too. #sad and had to do something for both.  for the same this article saved my back #dryskin Click for dry skin this article is THE BEST.
