Welcome to the second episode of my series Becoming a Makeup Artist where I tell you everything you need to know about becoming a makeup artist. Today’s episode is all about the different ways you can start your career and many tips on how not to lose faith when you get a no.
2017 is long gone but I still wanted to come on here to talk about the best beauty advise I learned from the past year. I worked the whole year in Sephora and got to learn many things about both makeup and skincare. So I would say that my knowledge in the beauty world for sure got way bigger last year and here is what I learned about in 2017.
If you didn’t already know, I work as a professional makeup artist at Sephora and I always have the option to be creative with my makeup whenever I have to go to work. So I thought I would film the progress of me getting ready for when I go to work and just chatting whilst getting ready. You get to know me a bit better in this video and you see how I did this smokey eye with glitter.
I’m not the one who jump on the challenge bandwagon but this one was just too challenging to pass on. A full face using only one palette, also foundation, concealer and contour. So I decided to try it out and see how much I would fail.
Usually I do very bold looks on my channel because I love makeup and I love being creative. Because I’m working as a makeup artist it is fun to do some crazy looks to learn new techniques. In my every day life I often wear very neutral makeup because I’m often in a rush or I don’t need to wear a lot of makeup.
Hello and welcome to my series Becoming a Makeup Artist. In this series you will learn how is it to be a makeup artist, the ups and downs, how to become a makeup artist, what you need, if it’s really necessary to get certified, how to get a job, how to build your portfolio and kit and everything in between.
This is my story of becoming a makeup artist and I want to give you all the tips that I have learned over the years. The series will consist of 10 blogposts – one each Saturday. So I hope that you will enjoy it.
Being a makeup artist is something that I have always wanted to become. It has been on my bucket list since I was very young. In 2016 I got a job as a makeup artist and in 2017 I became a certified makeup artist. So yes, it is actually possible to get a job as a makeup artist without a certificate.
One of my New Year’s resolutions for 2018 is to be more creative with my makeup and not do so many soft brown smokey eyes. They have been seen before and I have done them a million and one time. This year it’s time for a change. I want to improve my makeup skills and I want to explore the world of colors even more than I did in 2017. That’s what I’m doing in today’s Youtube video.
I was never one of those girls who was in love with Marc Jacobs bags, laptop sleeves, iPhone cases and all the other things he designed. I thought they were a bit gimmicky. When I heard that he was launching a makeup line I wasn’t impressed either. You are free to call me a pessimist, because that’s my true self 89% of the time.
Do you remember the time when all the makeup that was launched was matte? That the cool kids were buying matte foundations and lipsticks even if they had dry skin and chapped lips? I remember those times and I actually still have some matte foundations that never even suited my skintype. Money well spent!
