5 Random Facts Tag

Hey all, I recently got tagged by the beautiful Leah, to do a random facts post. Her blog is http://www.jetleah.blogspot.com you should check her out she has some great interesting points like the post on Nars dupe...

Here goes.

Fact 1 : Something about me a lot of people probably don't know is my main passion is dancing. I have been dancing for 15 years. I used to be in a ballet company and travel throughout the U.S for competitions. I am part of the company at my school, but not as serious about it. I used to dance everyday. Now I choreograph here and there, and are in productions..here and there.
Fact 2: I have been 5'5 1/2 forever.....I thought i stopped growing, but Ironically I went to the doctor last week and I am now officially 5'6 =)
Fact 3: I sell Avon, Mark, and Mary Kay beauty products. I have a strong connection to my companies but that does not stop me from telling you the honest truth about my products...if it sucks..i will tell you...i rather have an honest clientele base that confides in me..than have come and go customers & I fib to to make a quick 50 bucks.
Fact 4: I first got into makeup by having to learn theatrical makeup. For dance, their was a certain makeup look you had to learn and perfect. You had to learn a lot about the face, and how lighting effects the face...I am an artist with eyeshadow and that's something not very many people know since most of my tutorials are wuth neutral shadows.
Fact 5: I live on a college campus. It was pretty exciting at first, but does get stressful at times. It's making me become a hoarder because I bring things to school and forget about them and repurchase. Now I have like two & three of everything ( Makeup, hair stuff, clothing) BUT the best part about it is having the freedom to do things your way, and when you want without extra pressure.

So those are the five boring things about me....I love the different people I get to communicate with so I am going to tag five people as well!
