Foundation of makeup artistry

You’ll start by learning about different skin types, and the proper treatment and care for each. Then we’ll teach you how to contour for various face shapes, and using several different contouring techniques. You’ll learn what tools you will need, and what each brush is used for. We’ll cover foundations, concealer and powders for all skin tones, and show you how to find a perfect match in colour and texture. We’ll teach you about colour theory and palettes, and how to identify your customer’s colouring and choose complementary tones and shades. You’ll learn how to do eye makeup for every kind of eye shape, and we’ll demonstrate a variety of lining methods and how to apply eyelash extensions. You’ll learn how to create the perfect brow shape for each face, how to match lipsticks, and how to create your own unique shades. We’ll demonstrate several different makeup looks – from soft, daytime makeup to smoky eyes. You’ll also learn how to do makeup for different age groups – and we even include makeup looks for men! We’ll go over health and safety to ensure you practice good hygiene, and we’ll help you to create your own kit – we’ll give you tons of product suggestions based on our experts’ picks.

Bridal makeup and special events makeup

Some of the most popular requests for any makeup artist are weddings and parties. In fact, many freelance makeup artists create businesses that specialize in only these areas, because they can be so lucrative. Bridal and party makeup requires a slightly different approach, so we’re going to walk you through the kind of technique and application that’s required, and how to achieve a few different looks depending on your clients’ preferences. Most importantly, you’ll have to consider how the makeup will photograph. We’ll cover makeup tips for photography, and show you products and looks for different types of lighting – natural, stage, artificial, dim, etc. We’ll also teach you how to make your looks last – the key is durable makeup that will stay put! Lastly, you’ll learn how to work on location with brides or partygoers on the big day. We’ll tell you how to prepare, what to bring, give you tips on planning and managing your time, and teach you professional conduct for any situation. It’s also important to know how to attract clients in this space, so you’ll learn how to pitch your services, do consultations, and create a portfolio to show off your wedding and party experience.

From freelancer to business owner

Now that you’ve learned the tricks of the trade, we’re going to get you to start thinking like a business owner. You’ll learn how to do market research and analysis to create a business model, and to identify your customers and competitors. You can make an informed decision on what services to offer based on market demand, consumer trends, and profitability. We’ll go over various funding methods to finance your operations, and help you to create and stick to a budget. We’ll teach you how to set up your business entity, register your name, and protect any intellectual property you create, such as your name and logo. But it doesn’t end there – you’ll likely need some help with day-to-day operations, so we’ll cover those too! We’ll be going over accounting practices and banking consideration, insurance requirements, and what’s needed to run a home-based operation if you work from home. Once you’ve got your business up and running, you can get strategic. You’ll learn how to create a business plan to identify your financial, business, operational, and marketing objectives, so you can keep tabs on how you’re doing in each area.

Setting prices and making profits

It’s time to get to the nitty gritty – actually making money from your business. You’ll have to set price for each service you provide, but there’s more to pricing makeup artist services than simply picking a number that sounds good. We’re going to show you the relationship between overhead, pricing, and profit, so you can decide the right formula for your financial needs and lifestyle. You’ll learn how to do research to determine market pricing, demand pricing, and markups, and how to identify your margins. We’ll teach you to develop hourly rates, contract rates, and fixed pricing, so you can offer customers a variety of options. We’ll also cover pricing for promotions and sales, analyzing sales trends and knowing when to adjust your pricing, and how to stay competitive. Don’t worry, we’re going to keep it simple so that everyone can easily understand and adopt these practices – you won’t have to be a math wiz! Once you’re done these modules, you’ll have established your fees for various makeup services, and you’ll be able to account for every penny spent and earned!

Marketing and promoting your services

What’s a business without clients? We’re going to turn you into a savvy marketer and PR specialist, so you can start growing your customer base. First, we’ll start with an intro to marketing, so you’ll know the basics; how to do market research, positioning, promotion channels, etc. Next we’ll help you to create a marketing plan that outlines your marketing efforts and goals for the year(s). Because you’re just starting out, we know you’ll be sensitive to overhead expenses, so we’ll teach you low-cost marketing techniques that are easy to implement and just as effective as high-level strategies. You’ll learn how to create a unique brand identity for your business, and how to design a website. You don’t have to be a professional web developer to build a website – our tips are user-friendly for all skill levels. We’ll also dedicate a large section on social media and online marketing, where you’ll learn how to manage your online presence and promote yourself effectively on blogs and various social media platforms. Lastly, we’ll teach you how to develop a winning sales pitch and presentation that will knock your client’s socks off!
