"Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening." -Coco Chanel

My Best Friend (Is a STAR!)

Hello my fellow Sophisticates! I have some rather exciting news, not about myself, but rather my best friend! (Just a heads up, this is an all right bragging post) A few months ago, my best friend became a certified makeup artist and has been doing some really awesome jobs here and there since graduating. It turns out that she did yet another amazing shoot with a very talented photographer and that her own makeup looks/designs were featured in an online magazine!!! I could not be more proud of her! I've linked the article below and I've posted her Instagram, which features some of her gorgeous looks, as well for you all to check out! It still amazes (not really, because she's always been amazing) me how far she has come in her life with her career and I could not be more proud to call her my best friend and honorary sister! If you'd like to follow her through her journey of becoming an A class makeup artist (not that she isn't already) you can follow her @charmingfacesbychristina or at her personal account @darkwavemermaid on Instagram! I hope you all will fall in love with her and her work just as I have! (Rant over, and yes, I warned you about having one of those "proud parent" moments, but I just couldn't help myself!) Congratulations again Christina! xx

Until next time!
-The Sophisticated Shopper xx
