Updated: Jan 13, 2019


🏽 "My biggest BLEM/SH or obstacle that I face day to day is over thinking and doubting myself. I think every artist faces these obstacles because you never feel like you’re doing enough, when you are doing as much as you can.?


Let’s do a poll. What’s more ‘real’ ? Reality TV or Instagram pictures that have been photoshopped and filtered a bunch of times. Well in this case Reality TV takes the cake. Why?

Antonia (Toni), 27, ( @anti_gorgeous ) does make-up for different clients including Vh1 Black Ink Crew Chicago & she’s aiming to make sure her make up name, ‘ANTIGORGEOUS’ ultimately becomes a household name. 

“Haha I love how this question is worded! My biggest accomplishment right now is being Able to work for a big network like Vh1. Doing makeup was something fun for me at first. I decided I was going to chase my dream of being a celebrity makeup artist last year and here I am. This is a great start but of course I'm not done.”

“My biggest BLEM/SH or obstacle that I face day to day is over thinking and doubting myself. I think every artist faces these obstacles because you never feel like you’re doing enough, when you are doing as much as you can. I do daily affirmations and that helps me center myself. Nothing can get in the way of your goals but you, so its important that you don’t get caught up in thinking you’re aren’t enough.”
