Starting CRAVE Beauty is really important to me. I am passionate about my brand, and I set goals for myself and my company. One goal that I wanted to accomplish was to get a certification as a Makeup Artist. So after researching my options I finally decided on a training course.
I selected the Robert Jones Beauty Academy because of three things that I was looking for:
- Cost of program
- Length of program
- How comfortable I felt with the instructor
The Robert Jones Beauty Academy has a good training program for a person to be able to learn, and to still maintain their life. Robert Jones has excellent credentials and he has a great personality, and style to his teachings. I also like his approach to wanting to bring out the natural beauty in women.
I am very pleased with what I have learned, and the ability to have a resource tool to further my makeup knowledge. The academy also has a Facebook group, strictly for academy members, that is supportive, and a good networking opportunity. I have begun to practice techniques, and each day I am more proud of what I have learned. Against some obstacles, I managed to accomplish my goals in the time frame that I had established. Now I am ready to move forward as the President, and Makeup Artist, for CRAVE Beauty.
Until next time, "CRAVE Beauty. It's As Simple As That."

Hey CRAVE readers! I like to make friends from all over the world. Through the wonderful world of social media, I have had the great pleasure of meeting Nathalie from the UK. Nathalie was so gracious enough to give CRAVE Beauty an exclusive interview to discuss what drives her passion to blog. Welcome to the world of Nathalie!
1. Tell me about you, and your blog. Hey, my name is Nathalie, I'm a typical girly girl who loves testing and trying out beauty products! I am big into all natural brands as I know how harmful massive exposure to toxic chemicals can be, which is why natsbeautypalace always does reviews of safe brands that are cruelty free that give great results! I started blogging earlier this year and felt it was about time someone did a blog on more safe cosmetics, and I also do postings on the latest news that mainstream media often won't cover, so that's what sets natsbeautypalace apart.
2. Why did you start your blog? I started my blog as a hobby to promote good, safe cosmetics to other people who may have sensitive skin and want to find makeup, cream or facial washes that are good for the environment and good to their skin.
3. What is the best post/interview you have done? My best post interview has to be my interview with Ansar! I always like to do something a little different on my blog as not everything I do is just about cosmetics. I heavily recommend Ansar and his team's films! You can find the interview under: Interview with Ansar.
4. What is the future for your blog? Natsbeautypalace just keeps growing and growing and I hope to gain more followers and create natsbeautypalace into something much more and bigger, and maybe hold campaigns etc.
5. What is the best quote you've ever heard? The best quote I've ever heard is "a day with out laughter is a day wasted" so true!
6. What is your number on beauty tip? My number one beauty tip HAS to be use a toner or facial spritz before applying your usual moisturiser!
7. Which is the one beauty product that you cannot live without? The one beauty product I could not live without would HAVE to be my night recovery cream, I don't have a specific brand as I am going to be trying the MD formulation very soon, I did try the Clinique recovery cream and it was my skin's rescue!

Well as with a lot of things, "Change brings opportunity and growth." For CRAVE Beauty that time is almost near for us to switch gears and move to a more efficient, and smarter way to bring our presence online.
In the next couple of weeks we will be shifting to a new platform for our blog and our eCommerce. We have tested a couple of different options, and are making the best decision to reach our next set of goals. We are excited about the move, and cannot wait to display our new look. In addition, we will be partnering with some great professional artists, to create a more polished look for the CRAVE brand.
For right now, feel free to view the CRAVE Beauty WordPress blog, and get a glimpse of our new blog platform. For all aspiring models, or seasoned professionals within the industry of modeling, photography, or business, please check out the CRAVE Beauty Model Gallery.

Well as we move forward and look to furthering the brand in 2013, we are working on developing our first makeup video tutorial. We have looked at some great examples, and got some great ideas from others. Now that we have found some great help to bring our vision to reality, in a couple of weeks we will be in the "video production stage."
We're hoping to make a good video that will showcase the CRAVE Beauty brand, and give you a look at who we are. In addition to the makeup tutorial, we have been in talks with a great fashion photographer. It's been truly inspiring to meet people with some great ideas, some words of criticism, and hope, to help us propel the CRAVE brand further. We now know what an "industry standard," model can do for our brand.
The goal was to launch CRAVE Beauty no matter what, and "We're proud that we did what others may fear." Now it's time to move the CRAVE brand to the next level...a more polished look. We hope that you will continue to support us and stay contacted with us through social media.
Until next time, "CRAVE Beauty. It's As Simple As That!"

We often get asked about our opinion on subjects like makeup trends, love issues, and work related topics. Well after much consideration we have decided to touch on these subjects too. One of the missions of why we started CRAVE Beauty, was we want people to feel good, and sexy, about who they are. Sometimes the tumbles we take in life can make that so heavy on us, that it can show on our outward being. Well we want you to know we are right there with you.
Very soon we will post our thoughts on various subjects that may hit home for you. These thoughts are not what you should do, but they can maybe give you some things to ponder as you make your decisions.

Welcome to our blog! Thank you for taking time out to visit with us. Through our blog post you can find out what we are up to as far as bringing the CRAVE Beauty brand to market. Our goal is to stay connected with you and do what we can to bring good products to market.
We are currently finalizing the company logo design. We wanted a logo design that would be a reflection of us and who we are. When the logo is complete will make a post about it to share it with the world.
We are excited to be working with a great PR company that will help us further develop our brand. We cannot be everything within a small business, so we have decided to leave the marketing to a highly capable group of talented people. We have faith that in the coming months, the PR firm will do a great job at helping us bring CRAVE Beauty to the people.
Please sign up to become a member of our blog. We would love to cnnect with you, and get your input on things that we should maybe input within CRAVE Beauty.
