EP 46: Real Confidence- The Beauty of Confidence with Special Guest Alex LaMarsh

Friends, I’ve got another story from my adventures with L’Oreal and IT Cosmetics to share because the person who did my makeup for the photoshoot and videos has a natural gift for bringing out confidence in others in a way I have NEVER seen before. 

Alex LaMarsh is hands down one of the coolest people I know. She’s got a body of work as a makeup artist full of models and celebs way cooler than me, but somehow we became friends. 

Now you get to “meet” her too. 

You might think this episode is just about makeup (cosmetics) but it’s really about our internal makeup. What makes us who we are when our nerves are rattled, when we’re stressed out or otherwise don’t feel good about ourselves but still have to show up and give things our best shot. 

(Okay, there might be one or actual cosmetic tips in this episode too, but you’ll have to listen to find out.) 

I hope you’ll love listening to Alex as much as I do as she shares:

  • Why finding common ground with a client is the key to successful collaboration
  • How she makes someone feel comfortable on set no matter what mood they’re in
  • The ways our eyes play on tricks on us when we look in the mirror - especially when we’re under stress
  • How having “desert island” beauty product on standby can give us confidence in an instant
  • Her number one tip for calming your nerves before you pick up the phone, walk into the room or open your mouth
