An Absolutely Dazzling Dream Brought to Life

My name is Angelica Alberti & this is my story on how I became a Makeup Artist.

Starting out in cosmetology school in 2012 I learned that my true passion was makeup. Problem was that in the state of New Jersey, they only touch on about 3 days of makeup and you are pretty much just reading out of a book! Educating yourself by reading is great but I knew that if I really wanted to find out if I had what it took to be in the Industry of Beauty as a Makeup Artist I had to grab a brush and do some hands on work with a pro! That is when I signed up to be a student at the Glam Academy with Alexa Prisco. Making that first big step was super intimidating and I was so nervous because I had NO IDEA how to do makeup or what to expect.  I am here to tell you that the Glam Academy and Alexa Prisco have given me the best experience of my life!

 

Alexa really challenges you and brings out the best artist in you. She shows you that if you really work hard in her academy, you can go beyond a makeup counter. When I was going into Makeup I didn’t really know what I would do going out of it. I wasn’t sure if I was going to end up at a counter or a salon. Alexa and the Academy really shows you that the sky is the limit! You can customize your services and brand to whatever it is that would set you apart from other artists in the industry.

 

That leads me to, life after Glam Academy and Absolutely Dazzling (My Brand).. Of course its scary when you are officially out there on your own with plenty of competition. For me, I did not waste any time! I was trying to book clients immediately! I had my first Bridal Expo while I was I was finishing up the Academy and I still get calls to this day from brides from that expo. I learned on my own that patience was very important and to not give up if you are not getting calls right away!

 

Where am I now in my career? I can tell you that right now as I am typing this I am preparing to do Miss New Jersey USA Emily Shahs makeup for her send off tonight as she prepares to take the crown of Miss USA 2014! I have done work with CW’s PIX11 News and also Mercedes Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center in Manhattan, which I made it to CNNs home page for! I am also doing special events.. Anything that needs a little glam and I feel that it would benefit my name & resume, I’m there!

Everyday I am working to get more exposure and a positive name for my brand! I look forward to blogging on here & sharing my journey with all of you! Make sure you check back for more entries from other me and other GA Graduates!

 

Stay Dazzling! xx

Glam Academy Semester 5: Fall Photoshoot

We are now in the final days of fifth semester of The Glam Academy.  One of the first shoots for the Senior portion of the program focuses on all of the beautiful jewel tones in both fabric and makeup trending whenever the leaves turn crispy and golden.  With eyes having an ombre effect of deep to light bronzes, cheeks “flush” with color isolated on the apples, and deep wine glossy lips– these looks show the students artistic ability to stay relevant to what is trending while still preserving a timeless nature of the composition as a whole.  These photo’s are my favorite of each photoshoot.  Enjoy!

Glam Academy 5 dates are officially out!

With our summer semester completely booked and at capacity in addition to a huge demand for this program– The Glam Academy has now released its fifth semester of dates!

After three extremely successful semesters of transforming people at all different stages of artistry into strong artists and entrepreneur’s we proudly go into our completely booked fourth semester beginning in August!

Our summer semester (now closed) with students coming from all over the east coast has reassured us in our ability to introduce people to their own true capacity.  By showing people that something that once was a dream is something absolutely possible– by giving people the tools to go beyond their own expectations of themselves, by truly fusing the artist and the entrepreneur we KNOW that if people take in all that the Glam Academy has to offer they will be successful business owners that can absolutely control their own destiny.  We can only give you the tools, the vehicle so to speak– your own drive, motivation, and passion is the only thing that can fuel it.

Our sponsorships and affiliations leave the students with an experience unparalleled by any other program– from new models for every look, to photo shoots of every lab personally taken by Alexa showing the true journey of your artistry, to limo rides throughout the city taking students to private demonstrations by the top artists in NYC, education throughout the semester that allows you to leave the Academy with a working business– these are only a few of the many experiences that make the Glam Academy such an incredibly unique take on what transforming a person into a successful makeup artist is.

We put you in the control seat of your future allowing you to not only reach your dreams but go beyond them.

Spring into Summer with The Glam Academy!!!

The fourth semester of the Glam Academy (Hoboken, NJ Makeup School) will be starting this August.  This is after three semester’s of successfully transforming people with either an interest in makeup or makeup artists looking to refine their skills into full blown entrepreneurs!  Each of these artist’s have taken their own independent interests and passions and fused that with their love of makeup– creating lines of services drastically different from one another.  Whether it be a play on language, a specialization in cultural makeup, or catering services to a particular demographic (kids, teenagers, older women)– the Glam Academy students have created businesses that answer WHY someone will come to them instead of someone else!  Each of these students continue to impress me daily by utilizing the full gamut of social media– truly understanding the capacity it has to fuel the exposure of a business.

Please feel free to research these highlighted students and see the incredible stamp they have left on the internet

7 A.M. Enfant Le Sac Igloo Giveaway!!!

To all my Glammy Mommies!!!

I created a video this past weekend along with sharing a bunch of pictures on Twitter about  all my new goodies from 7A.M. Enfant!  Essentially Danny took me for a day trip to Woodbury Commons to celebrate my birthday and we did NOT want to let the cold weather stop us!!  That said the Le Sac Igloo along with the Warm-muffs and the Barcelona diaper bag made this trip such a joy!!  McKayla was so beyond warm and cozy in her fleece lined baby cocoon that she slept for the entire outdoor bitter cold trip–of course a good ol’ Arctic sting really cant affect you when your in a bed on wheels engulfed in a fluffy warm sac with a fleece blanket that cinches in all the perfect areas for ultimate warmth!  The warm-muffs– which essentially are these awesome fleece lined gloves that attached to your stroller keep moms paws super warm when they need to be and free to tend to your baby in a micro second.  And the Barcelena diaper bag goes without words.  It is designed for moms– literally from the way in which they would layer items in a bag, the priority of the items– nooks, crannies, and key holders– even stroller straps to keep it in a position for easy access…. something I was Macgyvering with my previous diaper bag and two stroller hooks.

Nevertheless– what would a true “fairy” be without being the bearer of good news!!  Both 7 A.M. Enfant and I want your cub to experience this beyond incredible baby bunting sac!!  And also– more mom’s seriously need to know that these incredible products exist!!  I certainly didn’t when I created my baby registry and had I — these products would be the first on my list!!

This week’s giveaway is the grand-daddy give away!!!  The “Le Sac Igloo”

So here is how this Giveaway works!!!

The more attention you bring to yourself by re-tweeting, and generating more followers for 7 A.M. the more likely your baby will be beyond warm this weekend!!!!  Tweet to 7A.M. Enfant yourself and tell them why this is perfect for you!!  It certainly is perfect for me!!!

At the end of the day the squeeky wheel gets the grease!!  Be clever, be creative and let the games begin!!!

This giveaway will run for 7 days!!
