What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
All of our artists do mandatory quarterly education in some way. We love to learn as it makes us better artists & stylists. A new technique or a new advance cosmetic procedure all makes us very knowledgable about our craft and industry as a whole.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I'm an artist and could never sit behind a desk all day!
What types of customers have you worked with?
We are mostly an on location service provider for brides on their wedding day. But we also are commissioned to do film, tv, runway and editorials.
Our makeup studio is seeing a huge explosion in makeup lessons to everyday women. We are so thrilled to be sharing our trade secrets so women can become masterful with their own makeup bags.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Be sure the work they show you is their own. So many new and upcoming makeup artists buy "stock" photos and use them in their promotional materials. In this business there is no shortcut and artists who take shortcuts generally are not in business long. Be sure they are trustworthy, dependable and have the credentials you seek.
