I know it is a very rare thing when a passion or hobby turns into a real job. Sure I may not make enough money to buy a Celine bag (geez wouldn’t that be nice tho!), new furniture, or eat at the finest restaurants whenever I want to, but that’s okay. I’m lucky that before I started my freelance makeup business and blog, that my husband and I had already decided on me being a stay at home mom to our kids. So when I created my LLC, I knew that I wanted to feel successful in it, but that I would always make sure that I would never over schedule myself to where my kids would suffer or I would end up resenting my job bc it was taking me away from them. Balance right?? Well, it’s never that easy and I don’t think we should continually strive for balance, just strive to do our best and accept that as good enough.
So onto the question at hand – What is the best part about my job as a makeup artist?I’d have to say getting to see a woman’s self confidence soar after my job is complete.
There is nothing more rewarding than once I’m finished with a face, a woman looks into that mirror, smiles, and says “thank you for making me feel so good about myself.” I don’t care what anyone says, makeup has magical healing properties and it’s one of the easier things women can utilize to enhance their beauty. It’s hard to have a bad day when you are painting faces, playing with cosmetics, and feeling pretty good about your appearance! Therefore I always have happy clients which in return makes me happy!
So I want to hear from you, what’s your favorite thing about your job and what do you do?
