I had an " ah ha!" moment and realized i get so excited and happy around makeup and enjoy showing people how to do their own that going to school to learn about was a no brainer!
Please make sure you are not hiring a " drug store makeup" artist. I went to school specifically to learn the art of makeup application. This is my career and it's my calling! Don't settle for the cheapest! Choose the most competent and the one you are most comfortable around.
