Congratulations! You are here because you've made the decision to be or become a makeup artist. The problem you've run into though is that running a profitable makeup artist business, on your terms, is hard. If you can relate to what I'm saying, you're in the right place and I'm here for you.
And while you understand the success as a makeup artist doesn't happen overnight and investing in your business (and yourself!), you aren't sure what steps to take next.
> Is my portfolio and social media helping or hurting me?
> How about one-on-one coaching?
> Maybe if you had some templates to work off of, life would be easier?
bottom line: there are too many choices & not enough answers
The systems and tools I use in my business have evolved overtime. I've even written a comprehensive blog post and recorded a podcast episode on this topic here.
I started out on a shoestring budget (hello not having clients on day 1).
This meant I had to build this business from nothing.
From building/designing my website, to figuring out my logo and branding, to crafting my message, to showcasing my portfolio.. and oh yea, did I mention getting paying clients?
For three years, I did everyone all. by. myself. I didn't outsource anything until three years in because I didn't think I could afford it.
Nobody helped me except my amazing clients, who continued to trust me with their patronage. I didn't have any mentors even though I was looking everywhere for one. I couldn't find anyone I could trust in this industry.
That's why I decided to lay out everything that I use to run my business! I wish I had someone, anyone, who could actually help me.
The resources listed below are the actual systems and tools I am using in my business. I've used others too, which you'll find in my systems and tools checklist. are NO affiliate links (just referral links because these are actually things I use!).
I also put together a free Systems & Tools guide which lists all of these resources and links all in one place. Click the banner below to grab it:
First of all, welcome to this safe space from someone whose been through droughts where I never understood why people weren't booking me. I've also been in spaces when I need to hire a team to keep up with all the inquiries I get.
This industry is like this.
I've been through a lot in this fierce, crazy competitive industry.
I been let down, taken advantage of, and undercut.
I've wasted a lot of money on promises that were unkept, hit a lot of dead-ends with photographers and setting my rates too low, and well...don't even get me started on social media! How can I compete with people who are buying their followers and undercutting my rates or :gasp: copying the copy on my website?
You can't really call yourself a makeup artist if you can't relate to any of the above! #canigetanamen?
The highs in this industry are SO high and the lows make you want to throw retreat back into your shell and never look at makeup again.
