Wanna be a makeup artist....some helpful advice!

Do as many "test" photo shoots as possible, practice on your friends, family...and anyone you can hold down!

Touch every skin tone and skin type you you don't limit your ability.
Learn the basics- fundamentals are the building blocks to a great career. Colour theory, contouring, skin science and trends.

Say YES to as much work as you can...don't forget to look at every situation as an opportunity for growth!

Stay inspired by looking at magazines, movies, paintings basically anything visual that makes me want to get out a makeup brush and experiment.
Be patient because Rome wasn't built in a day.

Master the technique of blending as it's the key to a flawless application!
Humility because there are so many highs and lows in this industry, and there is always something to learn..stay open for feedback.

Work for the EXPERIENCE and not for the money when your first starting out! The money will come later when you have the experience and skills to back it up.
I think you need to be passionate about makeup, provide superior service and network, network and then network some more!

Take as many makeup classes as you can and also working behind the makeup counter is always a plus.
