From busy working makeup artist to helping OTHER makeup artists become more successful in their freelance businesses...

 

I didn’t always want to be a makeup artist.  In fact, I wasn’t even good at art at school.  

 

I fell into being a makeup artist rather later in life (mid 30s) and when I discovered the “power of makeup” to help people feel good about themselves I was hooked!

 

Living in a destination wedding hotspot, I quickly grew my business from 0 - 150 weddings a year in just two years.  After 4 years almost exclusively doing weddings, my family moved to a larger city, where my focus shifted to commercial, editorial and TV work.

From doing to teaching...


After being a full-time makeup artist for 10 years, I started teaching diploma of makeup at a leading college, because I wanted to help other aspiring artists realise their dreams.  I did that for four years before becoming discouraged, seeing so many of my former students struggling to get ahead in the industry.  They had all the technical skills: they could do great makeup, but something was missing…

 

I realised that the diploma curriculum focussed heavily on learning to DO makeup, but not how to be a freelance makeup artist.  Because being a successful freelancer is SO MUCH more than just doing makeup.

 

But I get it.  You didn’t become a makeup artist or hairstylist to spend all day doing your accounts or marketing your business.  But the reality is, if you don’t take care of the business side of your business, then all you have is an expensive hobby.

 

After years of informally mentoring artists, in 2018 I took the plunge and started my own business, offering business coaching and online courses to help other artists get ahead in this exciting industry.

 

My zone of genius is helping other artists figure out what they really want from their freelance business, and then helping them take action on the things that are going to get them there.  My clients get results because not every makeup artist is the same, and what works for one artist may not work for you.  When you have a clear idea of where you’re headed and how to get there, your business becomes so much easier, more profitable, and a lot more fun.

 

Are you ready to become more successful?
