It honestly amazes me how people think makeup artists just work 2-3 days a week.
Yes I may only spend 2-3 days working ‘in salon’, which can be anything up to 14 hour days. But I’m a one man band, I’m my own promo girl, my own admin man, my own social media guru, my own YouTube editor, my own creative content creator, my own marketing manager, my own accountant, my own stock manager, my own photo editor (this literally takes hours by the way to pick and plan and schedule your posts!) I have 3 Instagram pages to maintain & 3 Facebook business pages and a YouTube page that I desperately want to work more on!
There’s so much more than meets the eye. ♀️
So yeh you may see me in the gym on a Monday afternoon or having lunch with my friends on a Tuesday, or walking the dog. But these are the perks of following my passion, I make my schedule. But this doesn’t mean I don’t work just as hard as you.
I don’t get weekends off. I’ve had a weeks holiday in the past two years, I work unsociable hours and the amount of hours I spend in salon I spend double outside making this my living!
AND I wouldn’t have this any other way!
I don’t have a 9-5 I have a wake up and work usually till 11pm at night usually answering messages. So remember Instagram is a highlight reel, and there’s so much more that goes on behind the scenes. We’re all working hard to achieve our dreams, but I do feel as though this is a common misconception in the industry that needs to be addressed. There’s so much more that goes into being a ‘MUA’ than people realise.
