1A）Direction of industry
The recognition of career direction is a common challenge that even the best makeup professionals face. Not less in comparison with other professions, the makeup industries promises a wide range of specialised roles, such as makeup trainers, beauty gurus, wedding makeup artist, commercial makeup artist, film makeup artist, special effects specialist. To adhere the fast changes in development, it looks like the birth of new professions are not slowing down. We can expect more classifications in the future, especially with the diversity of styles. Some may focus on fashion makeup, some will master ancient makeup, or even face painting. In this way, makeup artists are required to distinguish from the rest with their own strengths and interests, and they need to upgrade their skills and professionalism.
1B）THE ART OF COMMUNICATION
The responsibility of a makeup artists is to beautify and present the most beautiful side of the subject. To be a professional makeup artist, you should continuously improve not just your makeup skills, but also look into your customer servicing, maintain a professional personal image, as well as utilise your creativity, personality and art sense to convey the message and concept of your art piece. It would only be a discredit to your professionalism if you succumb to only just catering to the preferences and ideas of customers, and theoretically pursue fashion and novelty. Apart from that, active communication with your customers and understanding their needs will make you persuasive and naturally create more business opportunities.

Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.
In a life where one is the reference point of all deductions, it can be very easy to be subtly sucked into the vortex of thinking that our point of view is the best and fail to deliver to the expectation of the client. After all business means servicing, and happy customers, means successful art, and hence successful business. In the study of aesthetics, the art of eliciting preferences through conversations is fused with the art of persuasion to help clients see their envisioned artwork through your enhanced filters.
A story that speaks for itself is communication at its best.
Creativity is when you look at the same object and see a million other facets. Art breathes life and without a story, it is but shell that rots and then it’s no more. To breathe life, one must learn the mechanics, meaning and purpose of things. We get inspired and relate to the mind of that object. The bottom line to creativity is to train the mind to breed life, to write a story, and let that story inspire minds.

A Sous-Chef is not the Executive Chef for a reason.
Jack of all trades, a master of none is a timeless saying since the beginning of time.

Hence, adopting complimentary skills such as Photoshop, Illustrator, Photography and salesmanship can be the tools that accelerates you into success, if not stardom.
