There Are A Lot Difference Between Hearing and Listening

Hey Guys,

Just thought I’d let you know about my story being interviewed by “The Dyonne Lewis Show” Host and she wrote her blog excessively beautiful about what my life was like in one world. I grew up being deaf in the hearing universe and I was surrounded by people that can hear – while growing up, I thought I was like everyone else and intentionally got upset when I couldn’t hear what people were saying and I wanted to get something that can help me hear but unfortunately it never succeed. I was like ok something doesn’t work for me and I realized I have came to the terms of understanding my deafness  and discovering who I am in school. I remember receiving a speech therapy every morning at school – they thought I’d be able to talk and thats because of my parents teaching me how to speak/read lips. My parents taught me sign language and teaching me how to speak. I began to read lips at a young age and my friends would ask me what words I can speak like “apple” and she heard  my voice.  I knew nothing about deaf culture or their school until in 1995. The deaf school came to the school to tell the school how deaf people are like and how they interact with  others in a different way.

An evening with the Stars

When I started attending school and my friends were like “she’s deaf and we have to learn sign language for her” and I begin to notice they were signing and I asked them “How did you learn?”  they replied, “Mrs Nickel did teach us” My interpreter decided to have a class to teach the kids how to sign and I was so amazed. My first Interpreter was Barb and she helped me for only a year and then she was told to leave town and I was upset that she had to leave, she was the one who taught me how to read & write.  After many years, I decided to meet up with Barb in Toronto two years ago and she was very surprised to see me again – she was saying that she had thought of me and my mom. I came and visit her for the first time and I got to tell you that she’s amazing woman that taught me everything.

There are a lot difference between hearing & listening, having to say that is because a hearing impaired people brain is working properly and it is just ears that doesn’t work. Most hearing world are afraid of communication barriers and they don’t know what the other options available for them – yes there are so many options you can communicate with a deaf people. Technology is excessively improving and developing cool translator apps that can break down communication barriers on iPhone, Samsung and BlackBerry. I’m intentionally going to work on a communication project to help with the technology.  I am currently working with an electrical engineer and studying with him to be a successful engineer.

This World Needs Love, Smile, & Peace.

There are unexpected events or circumstances you are going through, there are friends and families that will go in the path and lead you in the correct directions no matter what happens to you or them.

There are something we want or desires in life – we just have to chase after that dream of our career or goals. It is being heard and mentioned you have to work hard on your skills other than feeling unlucky. Or else it is being said in the bible that if we want something in life – we just have to ask the creator of the universe if we can have it – and have a lot of patience and confidence in yourself. You will always have the talents without the doubt.

All over the world – there are so much hungers, survivals, wars, arguing over religions, people resent each other, and having to say that the world really needs help in restoring peace without any more fears. I truly believe if people can see the “Smile” and that will change the world but you just have to smile at everyone and this will change their heart to a soft heart instead of a black heart.

No matter what happens to you or your family – love will never let it go and remain strong connection. Love remains it’s soft and strong enough to honour what you have. Giving loved ones some credits – because of their unconditional love for you and do something that amazes you, inspires you big time!

The Art Of Makeup Designs

There are some interesting makeup designs created by the artists. These designs amazes me in a good way and of course when required an artists would create designs on model’s face relating to similar events like fashion shows, and some applied to auditions to promote certain arts to fit in whatever industry they wish to get accredited. As you can recall there are some pictures online are promoted by the artists – who designed best art on the model’s face. I have seen some of the most fabulous design ever. If I could have the money to travel and interview those artists from all over the world. They do have the amazing talents that inspire me so much. If you want to have that kind of art as a makeup artist you would have to attend some makeup courses from a certain modelling agency that offer that art course or the community college. The cost can be very pricy but it is worth it at the end. You will appreciate your art when you create one!

This design is just glamorous plus if I could design like this I’d definitely get more practice.

In my experience in the past, I have had only applied makeup on models for mother/daughter fashion show – I find it very inspiring and challenging. I believe an artists can have as much amount of fun working with models as they can. As an makeup artist, I don’t even consider makeup as my job but as the most glamorous and interesting hobby I will ever have.

Flaming Fire Eye Shadow

A flaming Fire Eye Shadow will pop out and make your eyes look bigger! There’s no need to scream from the fire because it’s just a eyeshadow. If you would like to have this kind of makeup here is my tip of how to create this kind of design.

What you will need:

Domed Smugle Brush
A Flat Eyeliner Brush
A Purple Jumbo liner (long lasting liner for 12 hrs).
Shany Comestic Eye Makeup Palette ( you can get it for $18 bucks).

As a starting point, you will be able to use domed smudge brush to add gold eyeshadow to the center of your eyelid then you will add red eyeshadow at the center to the corner of your eyelid. Then you will add a black eyeliner to the top and some on the bottom. Lastly, you will use the flat eyeliner brush to get out of the purple jumbo eyeliner and insert from the corner to the middle of the eyelids.

Rainbow Eye Makeup

I know it has been a while for me to insert stuff on here!

As I was doing some internet search for makeup tips to improve my makeup skills so I found some bright colours and I then decided to for a rainbow makeup and added some eyeliner to create a even look. My suggestion is to add eyeliner to provide a boost to your eyes. Great for evening wear and can be casual wear as well.

20140718-171505-62105983.jpg

So when I went out to grab some coffee – I got a lot of recognition on my makeup and people was amazed on my skills and I explained about how I did it – yes it is a lot of work and a lot of time. As you have heard people saying practice makes it perfect so it’s true.
