So MAC pro NY Showroom is hosting portfolio reviews for makeup artists with some of NY's TOP artists reps January 29th (today, Tuesday)-January 31st (Thursday). Basically you had to come down with a professional portfolio (no self pics, no pics of friends or family, etc) and with an open mind & questions. I noticed ALOT of makeup artists that already work for MAC there...it was a bit intimidating; because I don't work for anybody, I don't get to do any shows!** These guys all have the support of MAC, resume's and MAJUH show experience!!!
Well my meetings went REALLY REALLY well. They love the same photogs in my book that I love working with!! I was given was some GREAT feedback on what to do next (get a postcard/comp card, do more creative stuff, do more ethnic skin.) They liked my skin work, LOVED my mens grooming, and were happy that I don't mind doing light hair, on request.
I'm supposed to get in touch with one of the artist reps later today!
Fingers crossed please!
**Okay, this is no joke!!! While I was writing this post, I got a call on my cell from the first artist rep I met this morning!! Someone from their office called me, asked me if I was available to assist on a show this Thursday for Fashion Week!! I'm plotzing!! I was like of course!!! That meant canceling the other 2 appointment reviews I had scheduled for Thursday, but I mean this is an opportunity to do a show!!! THANK YOU BEAUTY & FASHION GODS!!
