My clients often ask if I sugar myself. My response is invariably "yes, the legs are easy, the underarms are harder than hell-especially my right one-and I do a basic bikini. I don't do a Brazilian on myself," I emphasize. "Of course not," is the typical reply back, to which I respond with the story of a friend who does do that. "Oh my god" they gasp. "I know," I say, "but she takes pole dancing classes." As if that somehow explains it.
The need for emphasis is twofold. First off, I feel like I need some sort of disclaimer. I'm usually giving a Brazilian, my most popular service, and grasping for some way to say: I don't do this to myself, I only do this to you. Second, in my book, if you can sugar yourself a Brazilian then you're a rockstar. Sugaring is an art. You can sugar people, but be really basic in your abilities. You can also be quite proficient, totally able to do most anything on people. It is in this latter category that I have felt solidly placed for a while. I never really aspired to be more--to be a rockstar. But as of today I officially am. I have crossed the threshold and stepped into the land of the Supreme Sugarista. I have sugared myself a Brazilian.
I love getting requests for products I haven't yet made. After all, I am making them for other people (although I do get to take them home and use them which is kind of an awesome perk).
One of the first requests sent my way was for an eye makeup remover that could take off waterproof mascara. Done. In testing. I myself don't wear mascara, or really any makeup at all, except when I get a sudden urge to paint, so I had to give it away to a couple gals who do (yet another reason to follow me on social media is the potential to be a test subject for awesome new products).
Another fabulous request was for an anti-aging eye cream. I love the recipe that I have created and hope you do too!
