I get asked daily “How Did You Do It” as far as branding myself in the beauty industry as a Celebrity Makeup Artist without an Agent, Manager, or Publicist. After flirting with the idea of sharing my tips, tricks, and ideas with other makeup artists & hair stylists, I decided “Why not” share my beauty blueprint.
Beauty Blueprint is a consultation service to provide answers, suggestions, and lessons on anything to do with beauty. My consultation will always take place through Skype or Facetime in the comfort of your own home. I’m excited about it because so many artists & stylists that are living in other states who do not have the budget to travel to meet with me will find this setup convenient. I remember when I started out, I didn’t have a mentor to guide me with the business side. A lot of the business women I looked up to were either in New York, LA, or Europe. I learned a lot of my business acumen through trial and error. I didn’t know what pictures to use in my portfolio, or on my own website. I didn’t know how and what to charge clients, or how to market myself. I wanted to work in the beauty & entertainment industry but had no clue where to begin. 21 years later I am sitting down helping others with their passion of being a successful makeup artists and hair stylists. This is their opportunity to pick my brain to learn what to do, even if they are already working but find themselves in a rut. I don’t just give someone a contact list of names, it’s a business. Clients can book time with me at their own pace, with questions that they have. If they want to just learn what items they need in their kit, how to do invoices, how to market themselves, or product questions, Beauty Blueprint can provide insight. The client is in charge with what they want to learn, no unnecessary curriculum. Each session is customized to fit each client’s needs. Makeup school teach how to do makeup but as a Celebrity Makeup Artist you are learning from someone who is in the business. I teach what a school cannot…experience, clients will learn first hand from a successful makeup artist.
And while Beauty Blueprint mostly caters to clients looking to grow in the industry, it also provides basic services to people looking for personal beauty advice as well. Such as, defining your personal beauty look, beauty tips and tricks, “How To” makeup lessons, and personal beauty shopping. Beauty Blueprint: Design Your Beauty.
