What is your Make-up Routine?   “Being a Hair Artist & Master Stylist, I naturally express my creativity, not just with hair, but with any aspect of Beauty & Fashion.   This certainly includes the Beauty of Make-up!  On a daily basis, I artistically create a fresh new look for my face.  My specific style is “Edgy & Sassy with a Distinct Quality”.  Once I’ve selected my wardrobe for the day, I love visualizing the tones of make -up and the “attitude” of the make-up — that I will rock with my wardrobe look.  On occasion, I may select my make-up first, then decide what wardrobe I will rock.  Designing, creating, and styling hair are my True Passions!  Beauty lies within this passion, and make-up lies within the beauty!  I express this daily by innovatively displaying “The Art of Shirley G”!
