BAROCCO ARTISTRY REVEALED
I wanted to build more than just a brand but an empire for my loved ones. Deciding on a name wasn't easy as I recall mountains of notes: qualities, meanings, and images that painted the picture I wanted to portray.
I'm an extremely detailed person and obsessed with analyzing everything. On a side note, analyzing does have its pros and cons, but on this occasion it brought flavor to the game!
In 2013 I was daydreaming about my bed frame, Rococo, that I left after moving. The structure and details were beautiful and was more than just a bed. The lines and color simplicity transformed my bedroom within an instant. Then a moment of clarity came...
Researching where this style of furniture originated, the name, and how it influenced society. I was automatically intrigued and after reading not only did I fall in love with this artistic style, it spoke to me as if I discovered a tiny detail about myself.
…”Baroque a period of artistic style which used exaggerated motion and clear, easily interpreted detail to produce drama, tension, exuberance, and grandeur in sculpture, painting, architecture, literature, dance, theatre, and music."
Jean-Honoré Fragonards’s “The Swing” (1767-8)
Exploring with hubby in Paris, France
By then, my husband and I were newly weds and my life began a new chapter. Every girl goes through changes no matter the event or situation. It wasn’t until opening my mail and reading a letter that addressed me as Mrs. Crystal M. Cruz. Within that moment the puzzle's final piece revealed itself.
In reference to the definition of Mrs. [source dictionary.com] it is defined as: title of respect prefixed to the surname or full name of a married woman. My idea was simple, we are women filled with class, dignity, and independence. To fulfill our endeavors we must love ourself and follow what makes us happy. As we flourish from a young lady into a beautiful woman we marry our goals, strengths and weaknesses. Committing to ourselves, loving unconditionally, and loyal to our dreams.
You posses your own individuality, sense of style, and beauty that sets you apart. We are all paintings in our own way emphasized in colors, lines, shadows, depth, and details that are all waiting to be discovered. Of course, only you have the courage and strength to reveal your own masterpiece.
Madame Barocco was established in 2013 and as time flies like a soaring eagle, my empire is continually growing. Makeup artistry is more than just a service, but an opportunity to accelerate ones confidence, self-esteem, and happiness... after all the mind is a powerful one.
I would love to hear from my fellow readers how this has inspired you. The Barocco Community is expanding and is filled with positive energy. For information on services, community, or opportunities feel free to reach out!
