How to Destroy Your Career as a Makeup ArtistWhen it comes to being a makeup artist, there are times when you’re ready to throw in the towel. If you get a bad customer, it can be a huge drag on your week. Why should you have to deal with someone who’s ungrateful for your skills? So what can you do to make them regret ever hiring you? Follow QC’s guide on how to destroy your career as a makeup artist, and you’ll be chasing clients away left and right!
Don’t clean your toolsThe best way to destroy your career in the makeup industry? Keep your tools dirty and grimy. That’ll show ‘em! And that means everything! Don’t bother washing your makeup brushes after each client, or sanitizing your palettes. Not only will you give your clients some health scares, you’ll get some really bad Facebook reviews while you’re at it.
Show up lateYou’re a freelance makeup artist – people should expect that you’re not going to be on time to every appointment! You can’t factor in travel time when you are in such high demand. That would make you look silly! You know your clients anyway, so it’s not like you have to impress them with professionalism anymore. They’re more like friends now, and friends wait for you to show up. They want their makeup done? They can hold off for a few more minutes while you grab a burrito.
Stop using social mediaWho needs it? It’s not like anyone actually goes to your business page to contact you. It’s just more work for you, anyways. You’re not being paid to post pictures of your work! If clients want to see what you can do, they can hire you themselves. Plus, you have personal accounts they can contact you on. I mean, why not just mush your business and personal life together? Nothing negative has ever come from that!
Give your friends free services
You have to do this! It’s not like you trained hard to become a makeup artist, or like your livelihood depends on it. You want your friends to see how good you are at it, and that means they shouldn’t have to pay you. At least that’s what they said…
