Hawaii Lifestyle Blogger Ask What’s The Correct FaceTime Etiquette

img_0685Alright guys, I have a question for you. Do you just call your friends/associates at anytime on FaceTime or SKYPE?

With majority of the world being LAID OFF or FURLOUGH we’re home and available to talk all day and night. No more excuses of I’M BUSY or I’M WORKING. You can barely get away with I was busy…yeah right, busy wiping down the food you just got from the store. So, friends and associates think it’s ok to just randomly FaceTime since SKYPE and Zoom video conferencing is all the rave. 

But, I don’t agree with that. I don’t know if it’s just that I’m old school and we don’t play that but you should never FaceTime a person without giving them heads up. I’m like this with people who just randomly pop up and knocking on my door. I have left many people outside knocking and ringing my bell because they just showed up and then showed up with an entourage, OH HELL NO!!! 

I strongly feel the same way with Face timing me. Just because you see my light on in Facebook or Instagram that don’t mean I’m wanna talk or better I want to Facetime with anyone right now. 

Now don’t get me wrong, I love my friends and like my associates, but you have to still be respectful. I might not be in a good mood, might be having personal things going on in my home, or better I might be having couple time, shit. Yes, I want to see your faces and I want to love on you but it’s at my TIME! 

If you know me, then you know I have a lot of rules. If we are talking on the phone, I want ALL OF YOUR ATTENTION. I don’t want to see your cute kids, your cats or dogs, I don’t want to say Hi to whomever is at your house. Another rule of mine is, don’t you dare call me and then you take your phone with you while you go to the bathroom. Cuz, I’m now hanging up and you’re no longer able to FaceTime with me ever. #PERIOD 

The only thing I wanna see in your surroundings is a bottle of bubbly’s that’s it.

So, I would love to know your FaceTime Phone Etiquette.

The Life Of A Makeup Artist Who Does Video Blogs

img_7393

I really enjoy been busy with a variety of things that pertains to my career. This morning started at 8am prepping for a second Skype interview from the team in London about my upcoming speaking engagement.

I have worked so hard as a makeup artist in the beauty & entertainment industry for 20 years and the last few years I have looked at others avenues in the beauty industry like speaking at events about makeup & skincare. So when I receive emails and calls about speaking and educating others it’s a dream come true because as I have gotten older I am looking to stay in the beauty industry but I’m now ready to educate others more whether it’s aspiring makeup artists and/or consumers.

 

The call went very well I was able to get all of my questions answers and we went over my time frame, topics, and products needed. After the call I headed out to meet up with Johnny to film our second makeup video for Makeup & Martini’s NYC. I feel that the second video was so much easier and felt really good because I once again love to teach so I was able to show a little of that on the second video. I can’t wait for you all to see it on Friday.

Recently, I was gifted with a box of goodies from one of my favorite makeup brands so I waited to open the box of goodies with you all. We also took still pics for content to use on our Instagram page as well. If you haven’t followed us yet please do when you get a chance. Once again thanks to Finlandia Vodka for supporting us with products and our cute Finlandia martini glasses.

Can I tell you how much hard work goes into this whole world of video blog. For now we are the producers, the directors, the lighting people, the camera people, wardrobe stylist, makeup artist, hairstylist, and bartender. Poor Johnny has the hard part he does all the editing. This is why all of those 100’s of videos I have of myself on my computer and hard drive just sit there is because I don’t have the patience for editing. So I am grateful for having Johnny cuz he handles all of the social media as well.

After filming we discuss our next week topic. So that we can have current content for you all.

Don’t forget to tune in on tomorrow to see our second video. Thanks Guys!
