As a mom, your number one priority is always your kids. There’s no contest—if something doesn’t work for your kids, it doesn’t work for you. But with so many flexible training options nowadays, you can get back to the dream you put on hold before you became a mom.
Did you once think about becoming a professional makeup artist? Did you dream about doing makeup for all kinds of special events? Do you still find yourself drawn to new techniques and the latest beauty products?
It’s important to nurture your children, but it’s also important to look after yourself! When you’re happy it reflects on your family. Check out this post to find out how you can follow your passion and become a makeup artist without missing out on being a mom!
Being with your kids
Taking an online course allows you to spend more time at home with your kids. This is crucial, especially if you work full-time. For moms with younger children, it’s easy to jump online after you’ve put the little ones to bed and do a few minutes of work each day! That’s the beauty of an online course—you can work on your skills when you have time.
We know that some nights you’ll need that long and luxurious bubble bath, and hey, we encourage it! Your course will be there when you’re able to put some more work into it.
Not stressing over deadlines
A huge stressor for moms that are in school: deadlines. Like you need more to worry about, right? Well, here at QC, we do it a bit differently. There’s no assignment deadlines and no live video sessions. What does this mean for you, the ever-busy mom? You don’t have to rush through your training!
Makeup training is about acquiring the skills and professional techniques you need to be successful. So, your assignments need to be completed with care. If you need a few more days to practice a skill you’re having trouble with, or if your daughter has a soccer game you need to attend, just take your time!
Building your confidence
While you take care of others, sometimes you lose the time to reflect on yourself and your talents. This can affect your confidence and your motivation for following your dream. One of the best ways to boost your confidence in yourself is to build your skillset. Being able to create unique makeup looks on your clients and yourself makes you feel accomplished. No one you know can master the cat-eye quite like you, and that’s something to be proud of!
Always having student support
It can get frustrating when you’re a mom, a student, and have a million other things going on. Luckily, you’ll always have someone to go to with QC. An important aspect of our online makeup training is to provide our students with as much support as they need. Whether you need help with payments, your assignments, or just want to let us know how your career is going—we’re happy to hear from you!
As a mom, you need to know how things work and exactly what your schedule will look like. A huge advantage to studying online is you have the freedom to work when you want, and you need someone to contact if you run into a problem.
Working at your own pace
With an already hectic schedule, it’s tough to make the decision to enroll in courses. How much time will you have with your kids? Will you be able to get everything done without being overly stressed? There’s probably a million thoughts going through your mind when it comes to starting this career path.
And as we already mentioned, online courses are ideal for moms with busy days. You don’t need to submit your assignments by a specific date, and you can take your time practicing as you go. It’s important to learn at your own unique pace!
Keeping your current job
If there’s one truth to this world, it’s this: life can get expensive. No one is immune to the economy, and we all have to pay the bills. Keeping your job is a big priority—you want to give your kids everything! Making sure you have a steady income is important, so obviously there’s no penalty if you need to work. Being able to study, be a mother, and work all at the same time shows a lot of hard work and dedication. Put in what you can, when you can, and you’ll be living your dream in no time!
