I have to rave about this fabulous product.

I have been using the ‘Graftobian High Definition Pro powder’ palette for just over a year now and it is the best of the best.

Graftobian Makeup Co. was established in 1978 and is a manufacturer and distributor of virtually every type of makeup.

The palette has lasted for the whole year and has been used on many films and photo shoots with only two of the colours having to be replaced.

Apart from the obvious, being that it is suitable for High Definition work as it is undetectable on screen or film, it lasts for ages and can be reapplied without any hassle.

I use it for concealing, highlight and shade and keeping shine at bay.

I purchased my palette from the fabulous online store ‘Makeup and Glow’ and haven’t looked back since.

You can purchase the complete 8 pan palette and any refills from while you’re there check out all the other amazing products they offer.

When a potential client approaches you to do their Hair and Makeup for a competition, think strongly about whether you wish to be a part of this type of arrangement.

Now, I am speaking about competitions like amateur Karaoke contests or other amateur performing comps.
They will leave you saying that they love what you have done and are happy with the result.
Everything will be just peachy keen.

However, from my own experience, I can tell you it’s not worth the hassle.
They usually want things done on the super cheap and expect too much bang for their buck.
They’re expectations are set way too high and as a result, they have a long way to fall.
They’re amateur performers and have very little experience with winning and losing and as a result they are usually very sore losers.

Apart from this the main reason I suggest not doing someone’s Hair and Makeup for a competition is because when or if they don’t win, instead of understanding that it could be a number of things that made them lose, they will blame you and the Hair and Makeup.

My suggestion is to steer clear of them.
