We hope you sent your most positive thoughts over to Ashlee Holmes yesterday, 'cause it was a big day for her on the career front.

The daughter of Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jacqueline Laurita has been studying at the Make-Up Designory in Los Angeles, with the goal to be a professional makeup artist. On April 1, she shared the photo shown from the Designory, writing, “About to take my final! #letmetakeaselfie.”

Even before a major test, there’s always time to reference the “#SELFIE” song! We’re pretty sure Ashlee rocked her test, since she’s already shown she can glam herself up beautifully with sexy hair and makeup, and she did note that she got an "A" on her airbrush exam.

Ashlee just wants women to feel beautiful and confident, in any way they choose. In January, she talked to Radar Online about getting Botox injections, even though she’s only 23. "Botox is most effective on wrinkles that haven’t quite set, so I tried it," she explained. "I really don’t see the big deal." She added, "People lose their minds over other women getting cosmetic procedures. I say, if you have the finances and you feel like it’s something that will make you feel more confident, why not go for it."

She said she wasn’t telling women the only way they can be beautiful is to get injections. “I believe that everyone should be comfortable in their own skin. If you can do that without touching your face at all, good for you.”

Still, it’d be better for Ashlee if you feel comfortable having an expert touch your face with makeup, since that’s her new career. Good luck on the next step!
