When Janice decided to become a makeup artist, she had zero clue what the next steps should be. Janice asked her parents for advice, but as you can imagine, they didn't quite consider her choice of profession to be too great. Unfortunately, the jobs in beauty & makeup industry carry a dogma of being "not so fancy", even though they require intense education and training. So as you can expect, Janice couldn't get much of her questions answered. To her good fortune, she came across a friendly admissions counselor at a local MakeUp Institute who helped her answer all the questions. The counselor was kind enough to help Janice map out her path and re-align her carer goals. Unfortunately, not every beauty professional has access to resources and support for their field of study. This series of articles is an additional resource for any future (or even current) makeup professionals who are seeking to begin the journey of becoming "The Expert MakeUp Artist".
