Reyna outlines ten essential habits that will help young makeup artists along their journey. For example, one must practice working on their own person hygiene. Simplistic, yes, but one of those critical little details necessary for establishing one's business. Show up smelling like you just worked out in a gym or wearing heavy perfume can be overwhelming to your client base. Oh, and the ability to accept criticism is also a plus.
You'll also be able to take a whirlwind tour through makeup styles such as beauty makeup: Clean beauty, basic beauty, fashion, glamour (extreme beauty), bridal/special occasion, high fashion (avant-garde, fantasy), and clean beauty. Each type of makeup is briefly discusses so you'll get an idea of the different types of makeup you might be doing or may wish to specialize in. Perhaps you'd like to work in the theater, television, or movies. You'll have to take a look at beyond beauty styles such as theatrical or special effects. You'll even get a glimpse at thing like HD technology and makeup.
This is a nice basic overview for those who are considering going into the world of professional makeup artistry.Read more ›
For $3 you get all sorts of advice and a ton of resources (all websites) from everything on where to purchase products for your kit to where to look for work.
Trust me, this is the BEST $3 you will EVER spend on your career.
Then the book jumps into the building of a portfolio of how to present your skills, how to market your skills whether through an agency or advertising or online marketing. Many people who have a gift for manipulating cosmetic products both for themselves and for their friends may not realize that they are a special `commodity'. This book takes the new makeup artist through a thorough course in preparation - but it also provides a rather extensive resource guide for those who are already involved in makeup artistry and wan to take the next step to becoming a licensed cosmetologist.
With the proliferation of MediSpas today and the numerous counters in the department stores where beginners can try their skills both in applying makeup and in learning the secrets of dealing with the capricious public, this little book is a manual to keep handy - for every step of the way. A very fine resource for the serious minded makeup artist. Grady Harp, March 13
