Makeup.School VS YouTube
With the dawn of the Internet, there is “virtually” nothing you can’t learn. The world is your oyster. Have you always dreamed of juggling in the circus? Maybe you’d love to sew costumes for blockbuster movies. All you have to do is pull up your favorite search engine and do your research, right? I mean, YouTube has everything you need to know about anything right there at your fingertips for free. Why not take advantage of it?
How-to based sites like YouTube and Pinterest are great for certain things. If you want to build a raised bed garden or refinish some old furniture then sure, those sites would be ideal. When you are really passionate about something, however, it is well worth it to dig a little deeper. This is true for all of you who feel compelled to pursue a career in the field of makeup artistry. For more inspiration, see how former Makeup.School student Reslie Mundwiler shares her advice in our Alumni Feature Series.
When there is something that stirs within you every time you do your makeup or that of a friend; when you see your artwork take shape on one of the most unique of canvases, the human face, this is when you know that you are called to be a makeup artist. Like any other career field, makeup artistry is a craft that is best learned from professionals who have the experience, knowledge, and expertise to lead you down the path to success; something a simple YouTube video simply cannot do. Makeup artist courses definitely are the way to go. Click here for more Benefits to Becoming a Makeup Artist.
When you attend Makeup.School, you receive a top-notch education from some of the best and the brightest in the field. You learn how to book clients, set up contracts, what products to keep in your kit, as well as color theory and how to network with others who may help you drum up business.
As you can see, building a career in the field of makeup artistry is much more complex than some may think. If you’re going to chase after your dream, why not do it right and receive your Makeup Artist Certification in the process? When clients look for potential service providers, one of the first things they check are the provider’s credentials. Sure, a great portfolio might land you a few gigs here and there, but a certification from a professional, high-quality program will help you build a business with a lifetime of earning potential. Our article: How Much Money Can You Really Earn as a Makup Artist? expands on this topic.
Life is entirely too short to settle for some nine-to-five job where you’re just checking the block to get a paycheck. You deserve to wake up every morning and feel completely thrilled to provide an amazing service to your clients and enjoy each minute of your day. Makeup.School provides you with the opportunity to hone your craft while under the watchful eye of professional makeup artists. You work completely online and at your own pace, so there are no time constraints or travelling expenses. You make the choices, you build your career, you hold your future in the palm of your hand.
