Thank you so much for one of our makeup artist in the industry. To share her story with us.
The reason for this post. . Is not to get people to train with me or to show off. (Im just a simple girl who love my job.)
Is for all of those stu...dents who they may had the same experience as her ....who may felt lost, hopeless, wasted their time. .
To ...NOT GIVE UP!
If they have a passion for the industry. Keep it up. There is a way.
This is our inspirating conversation last night which touches my heart.
It is not the first one I heard this week...from people who contacted me.
Just want to share with you all.
There are Many Good People in the industry and we all share the same goal.
Don't give up! New comer!
(Some higlights of our conversations)
M: thks for adding me.
A=Not a problem you were recommended to me by R.W. we worked on a shoot together last week end, i read your story and you seem like an inspirational person and are after the same as I am educating up and coming makeup and hair artists and passing on your knowledge and wisdom whilst still remaining humble and a good person I didnt have that when I was first training, i find it sad that hair and makeup artists feel the need to compete instead of networking and being part of a team to achieve a common goal.
M: I totally agree with you. We should be networking and helping each other rather then flighting.
A= I think its amazing, i am just about to complete my Diploma of special effects makeup artistry and I have to say the academy im training at are not very good, my trainer is quiet lovley but isnt equipped to train all sections and before we had her our hair trainer lacked passion or drive and sat playing with a mannequin and told me she felt I out qualified her and had my TAA could I please train the hair class as she didnt feel up to doing it, i was devastated but I did it as my fellow class mates had no hair knowledge, granted that trainer ended up leaving but it saddens me that some academy's are all about money instead of equipping people with the right tools to succeed. Apologies i ramble a bit just tell me to be quiet
M: Don't be silly.
Im so happy you are willing to share with me.
That's why I want to make a difference
By not just giving training. But give students a choice after their training if they want to continue to be a crazy makeup artist like me that work crazy hrs.
Or just do it for fun.
it is not easy being a makeup artist. I gave up a lot thoughout the years to get where im.
I have been so luck to have all the support from my industry as well.
A= You sound like me i work crazy hours makeup is my life and hopefully once i finish my course I can get my eye shadow line of the ground but my ultimate goal is to be a trainer and have successful makeup range while still doing what I love you are truly an inspiration
M: No la... he he.
I just a normal person. Who been though a lot. Seen how poorly others makeup artist are treated.
I want to be able to make just one other person happier n the path to be a makeup artist smoother
A= It makes me feel relieved to know that there is quality education being delivered and they all aren't just after money
M: Do u mind if I share ur story with others? I wont mention names.
I just want others to know. Not to give up if they pick the wrong training school first time
. There are other opinions available. Not just with me.
But many good people is out there.
Don't give up their dream too easy.
A= Not a problem at all, I hope that it inspired others not to give up hope.
What a nice way to start the day.
May all your day will be filled woth dreams and hope.
Share your happiness to others.
If we can all do it to just one other person.
The world will be a better place sooner.
