The best part about Beauty Blueprint is that you can get information about your career without leaving home. Makeup Artists and Hair Stylists take courses but no one teaches them on how to get work.
New York, United States, June 22,2016 — Connecticut Celebrity Makeup Artist Brandy Gomez-Duplessis was recently in New York at MUD School speaking to young up and coming makeup artists and hair stylists about getting started in the industry. She gave the graduating class a snippet of what Beauty Blueprint, her new consulting agency, is all about. Brandy coached the MUD students on what it will take to become a successful artist in the field. There are so many bloggers showing how to create makeup looks and hair styles but their are no professional makeup artists or hair stylists who actually work in the industry showing and speaking to talent on how to get work and the industry.
Gomez-Duplessis stated that this is why she started Beauty Blueprint. She would get students graduating from a makeup school with certificate in hand but clueless on where to start, who to call, and what to do. Brandy wants others to book her consulting service even if they were in smaller towns and could not get to New York to meet with her. With all of the technology we have Gomez-Duplessis said consulting with her clients over Skype is the best way to do business, it’s still personal and intimate. The client can decide how often they would need her service.
Brandy said when she started in the industry, she lived in New Orleans and didn’t have a manager or a publicist. She found her road on how to be a high demand makeup artist and wants to share tips, tricks, and best practices on what worked for her. I worked with so many A-List celebrities because I knew how to brand myself. So with Beauty Blueprint clients can now hire me to learn how to build themselves as a branded in demand artist or stylist.

Headed to MUD, Make Up Designory School in Manhattan to speak to the students who will be graduating from the school. These are the up in coming industry makeup artists who’s work you will see gracing the covers of magazine, ad campaigns, music videos, etc. I’m just honored to have been invited to speak to the class. What I did for these students today, I could do everyday at this school because I love the beauty industry. Plus, I luv to help makeup artists who want to learn.

Prom season is now over up here in Connecticut, my last client was one of my favorite girl’s Jennifer. It was kind of a sad moment because this is the last year that I’ll get to do her makeup.Jennifer always let me do whatever look I want when it comes to her makeup. I wanted this look to be glam with a pop of color on the lips.Plus, I wanted to keep this makeup look glam yet on a budget. On her lashes I selected Sephora Collection lashes in Hipster. Everything I selected was either long wearing and waterproof products so Jennifer would not have to worry about her makeup coming off. I wanted her to have fun and look good while doing so.

During the summer we spend more time outdoor enjoying activities. This can be challenging on the skin if not properly cared for. The first thing that normally comes to mind during the summer is applying SPF. By now we all know that the SPF should be at least 30+ and higher, wear it every day during the summer, and reapply every couple of hours. But what about keeping the skin looking healthy and radiant after being damaged from all the UVA & UVB rays from being outside. With so many skincare products to choose from how do you decide what’s best on the skin. I selected Kiehl’s skincare products because it’s made up of the finest naturally derived ingredients like Lavender, Squalane, Calendula, Caffeine, Vitamin C, Beech Tree Extract, Jasmonic Acid, and Rosa Arctica just to name a few. Give your skin a treat by using concentrated products to restore and replenish the skin. Read the full article on Connecticut Post blog here.
