TOYOTA GRAND PRIX THUNDER THURSDAY
Hello Loves! The April Love Pro Makeup Academy Team was sent out to kick off The Grand Prix at Thunder Thursday. We styled the lovely ladies of the Miss Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. The pageant contestants saw us for big beautiful hair, smoked out eyes, and a chiseled contour. It was truly an exciting event to be a part of. A mix of bumping dance music and the sound of motorcycle stuntmen filled the air. There was also a classic car show and many other activities. Additionally, the whole staff was invited to the VIP after-party at Cuban Pete’s. That’s the best part about being a graduate of the academy. April Love personally invites her graduates to exciting makeup events. These events are excellent ways to network, gain experience and have FUN! As a professional makeup artist myself, I always remember why I love this industry when I’m at a makeup event set up by April Love.

April Love offers her graduates constant opportunities in and out of the academy. This month alone, we have had over 21 makeup events (some of which were charitable). Through these events, we have given 300 hair and makeup artists opportunities outside of the academy. This real world industry experience is so valuable to developing as well as seasoned makeup artists.
April has so many opportunities to offer to graduates because of the connections she has established over her 20+ year career. For instance, April Love Pro Makeup Academy and Sacha Cosmetics were sponsors at The Toyota Grand Prix. They even provided a goodie bag to all the pageant contestants. The bag included an amazing lip color called Matte Me Berry, a brand new blush named in honor of April Love, called April’s Love and a unique 6-color eyeshadow palette which produces the easiest of smokey eye looks called Smokey Bronze–all from Sacha Cosmetics.
I’m so grateful to have been a part of the exciting Toyota Grand Prix Thunder Thursday Makeup Team. I had the opportunity to create beautiful makeup looks in a fast-paced and very exciting environment. As a graduate of April Love Pro Makeup Academy, I truly feel as though I’m part of a team of real professionals. April, her staff, and her graduates are all so friendly and warm. I’m always excited to work with April and the team. I’m even more excited to see what more exciting events April will invite us to next!
