nash anderson, m.a.c. artist

***i'm hesistant to post a new post because i want to make sure you all see my previous post about national ms awareness week. so if you haven't read that, please make sure you do and spread the word!

a few nights ago while i was at work, stevie was watching the boy and after an extended period of freedom and silence went to check on him. this is what he found:



future m.a.c. artist in training? probably not, since i am the least capable of training him in the field. i barely wore make-up until i met laurla and probably only purchased so much of it because she hooked me up! anyway, each day (stevie will scoff here because he thinks i never "get ready". and it's getting harder for me to argue that point...) when i put on my make-up (which is really just tinted moisturizer, a little blush, mascara, and lip gloss. and eye shadow if i'm feeling dressy!) nash sits beside me and watches intently. he knows exactly where each product goes (relatively) and he looks at himself in the mirror when i'm "not watching" as if he's checking himself out. i'm not sure i'll ever be able to capture that on video, but i did manage to capture some of his stellar "blush" application technique the other day (he confused the lip conditioner with the blush, and who wouldn't? they're both pink with black lids...):

its so refreshing to see a mom not freak when their little boys if enthralled with makeup- here i thought i was the only one. primp away nash! you have fellow cosmetologist in ethan. you do the makeup, he'll do the hair.

I love it. Emery always watched me put on makeup and would try to apply herself. But the cover stick always ended up in the ear and she would mostly put blush on her hair or neck. So funny - glad to see Nash learning the art of makeup.

I am ready to take him under my wing whenever you are...at the very least you have an artistic boy there- which follow his M.O. (at least the one I think he will have) of gorgeous, cool, heartbreaker!

I rarely wear make-up either, and now that I know you don't, I don't feel so bad.
Cute video!

The boy has some serious talent! Maybe he can help me with my make-up since I seem to struggle in that area. I wear make-up, but I'm sure I wear it all wrong.

That is too funny. I love it. MAC is the best makeup! I love it. Hope your doing well
