All in all it wasn't a bad day at all :D. Now, I have a meeting with Kathleen Starita aka KStar Photography later on today to discuss/collaborate on a set theme/makeup. I'm loving this high I'm on and I don't EVER want to come down.
Arekah (The Goddess), Danielle, and I created some magic last night and it was fantastic! That was also my trial and I passed with flying colors. I'm so looking forward to all the collaborative team meetings and last minute changes and EVERYTHING. This has truly been an amazing week for me. :D
I was contacted by a very successful local photographer about becoming her go to makeup artist for all of her shoots! This is fantastic for me because it gives me the opportunity to be apart of a team. When there's a paid shoot, everyone gets paid, when inspiration just hits, we all get images added to our portfolio. This is such a great opportunity for me and I can't wait to see what this collaboration will birth. Stay tuned y'all :D
Who says you have to work at a makeup counter to generate business and receive reputable referrals?
Recently, I had a very depressing thing happen to me. I wanted to work at a makeup counter, for a huge sales store...but alas, I was not hired. It was depressing because I have all of the qualifications, all of the experience, and the attitude to match. Maybe I just wasn't what they were looking for overall. But it was still quite depressing to have two interviews and then have them tell me no. TT_TT. So, in order to alleviate some of the woe, I will buy some makeup! I'm still in a slump so I won't be purchasing much. But, the little bit that I will purchase, will be blogged about here.
