The Blind Gypsy, A Makeup Artist & BBB

Abby is on the job sitting cross legged in her PJs (gray bottoms & white top with a gray collar) with a teal Abby logo laptop on her lap. Sporting her signature explosive hairstyle, she is wearing a headset with microphone and her white cane is propped up next to her.

You know the old saying “when the boss is away, the mice will play solitaire?” No? Really? Well, allow me to elaborate. Stephanae aka the ‘boss lady’ is away and I’m in charge. What this means is, I get to make executive decisions. Well, maybe executive decisions might be a little over the top but I digress.

So my boss lady is nice but wow can she be intense. I mean on good days she’s like an over-caffeinated Energizer Bunny. And on bad days? Well, on bad days her energy level is equal to that of a sloth on Xanax.

I’ve told Steph for the longest that she needs to chill and find balance. Finally, after weeks of begging and pleading to my astonishment, she relented and we’ve finally begun building our team.

Now For The Secret:

Please meet our Beauty Advisory Team Leaders. Makeup Artist, Emily Metauten, and Eileen Robinson aka The Blind Gypsy have both been featured here on Bold Blind Beauty. Please, and I can’t stress this enough, please do not let Steph find out that I’ve let the cat out of the bag, okay?

While I can’t share all our secrets I can tell you that Emily is a freelance makeup artist/licensed cosmetologist and an amazing artist. She is passionate about diversity, advocacy, and is so excited to work with Bold Blind Beauty. Likewise, Eileen, a free-spirit with an excellent sense of humor is so energetic I know we are in good hands with the two of them at the helm.

Both Emily and Eileen are beautiful women who are visually impaired. They also share a desire to change societal perceptions about blind and visually impaired people. They’ve got some fabulous things coming down the pike and I know Steph can hardly wait to get started.
