GENEVIEVE A. SANTOS | beauty expert - makeup artist & esthetician

I'm closer to reaching my goal of meeting my idol!

For the Umpteenth Time, I’m BACK!!!

I’m so happy to be back to posting a little bit more regularly. I’ve been abusing my privileges as a beauty blogger by attending swanky  events by way of my website but not doing a write-up. Now onto my updates… I completed my 12-month marketing internship at Lancome. I was hesitant discussing my day job on my blog,…

Habitat for Humanity = SUCCESS!

As a result of the abundance of support and love from family, friends, and colleagues, I raised $1,040, in 11 days! This is more than double the original goal set when I registered. Nobody was spared in my address book and Facebook/Twitter page–everyone got a text message, email and/or phone call! What was surprising (and…

Why Do I Love Beauty?

Let me count the ways… While I have the privilege of playing with makeup at my day job, sometimes I have to reconnect with the reason and motivation for choosing this industry as my career. Sometimes we think our careers choose us, especially when we look back in our childhood. Check out these clues: My treasured…

Give an Apartment to Get One?

At 26-year-old, it wasn’t easy admitting that I was still living with the ‘rents. While many 20-somethings were staying home due to the lagging job market, I did not want to use that reason to justify my situation. Once I got my feet planted at my job (that I loved!) and built up a good…

HAPPY 2012!

January marked the start of my first pet project, my New Years cards! Instead of having a Holiday card get lost in the shuffle of taking down Christmas decor, New Years cards are way more memorable and is a universal occasion–who doesn’t want to be wished a happy new year? Here I’ll share one of…

Happy Thanksgiving!

…And THANK GOODNESS for the LONG weekend! 2011 has been a great year of new beginnings, and I’ve been fortunate with a handful of blessings that came my way. Thank you for everyone that reads my not-frequently-updated blog! I’ve already accepted the fact that I don’t update as often as I should, but I still…

Shecky’s Beauty Night Out – Fall 2011

I LOVE Shecky’s! This company has been filling my needs for a good ol’ night out of girlfriend-time, drinking, and shopping all-in-one! They’re mostly known for their Girls Night Out events, but this time I attended their Beauty Night Out, which took place November 8-9 in the Chelsea area. It’s been quite some time since I…

FAB!

September Recap

I can’t let September end without recapping my adventures earlier this month! Between New York Fashion Week, catching up on work projects, and getting sleep, things have been crazy! But I’m happy being back in the groove of networking and writing, now more than ever!   A big THANK YOU to Charu Suri–jet-setting travel blogger…

Sachika Spring/Summer 2012

Having worked with the dynamic fashion duo, Sachika, before they descended upon New York Fashion week–especially after that infamous Coco dress–I was excited to see what they had in store for S/S 2012. Now in their third season showcasing in Elle magazine’s Style 360 fashion show, their shows have been nothing less than entertaining and…

Check out my NY Fashion Week coverage with Beauty Stat!

New York Fashion Week is here! The Spring/Summer 2012 collections have arrived, and I’m running all over NYC to get the latest beauty trends off the runway! I started covering the shows backstage last season in February through TheMakeupGirl.net. I had a blast covering shows between Soho and The Plaza! Although my schedule is already…
