Stacey’s goal is to help you express who you are on the inside on the out side.

 

 Stacey's Philosophy of Makeup:

 

  • Make-up is about expressing who you are on the inside on the out side. 

  • It’s a personal expression of self and therefore there are no rules. 

  • You are the expert on you! A make-up artist is there to interpret your ideas and show you the best way to achieve your vision using products and techniques used by the pros. 

  • A skilled make-up artist should always make you comfortable with the look and the feel of the make-up.

 

Concept in Zen Buddhism.

Zen masters have described the original face as so:

"Sweep away thoughts!" means one must do zazen. Once thoughts are quieted, the Original Face appears. Thoughts can be compared to clouds. When clouds vanish, the moon appears. The moon of suchness is the Original Face. Thoughts are also like the fogging of a mirror. When you wipe away all condensation, a mirror reflects clearly. Quiet your thoughts and behold your Original Face before you were born!    — Daito
