Welcome to the official launch of The Body of Artists Blog and Newsletter! This has been a long awaited very exciting moment for me as I have been anxious to create a platform where I could share my knowledge, experience and ideas about this very multifarious industry in which we all commonly have chosen our career, or where some aspire to build a career. There is just so much to say about the beauty industry, and so many stories to share on how one becomes successful in it, so I have chosen to focus on a certain aspects of it that reflect everything on what The Body of Art is, and who I am not only as an artist, but a human being. Its going to be about growing, learning, inspiring, taking on true creativity in your life, failing and being successful, and really allowing yourself to surrender it all to yourself and community, thereby living the life and doing the work you know in your gut is true for you.
As makeup artists, it seems hard to gauge what our business is “supposed” to look like. Most of us don’t have an office to go to, a boss to report to, or even a structure by which we get paid and pay taxes with. A large percentage of us make it up as we go along. Hell, I am still making it up everyday! Every year I learn and develop new levels of my business. Even if we have attended renowned prestigious makeup schools or academies, or even gone to cosmetology school, very rarely is the subject of how to be a good business owner ever addressed. But even the ones who make business education apart of the curriculum, usually still do not address the most important as aspect of being an exceptional business: being in relationship.
