If I Were A Makeup Artist….

If I Were A Makeup Artist….

One of the most intimidating parts of owning a business or a startup precisely is how much whatever you’re getting into is being done by everyone else. That shouldn’t be the case anyway.

It is an undeniable fact that the makeup business is one of the most common startups in Ghana at the moment.
It is also one of the lucrative businesses one could venture into, however considering how much the market  has become extremely saturated with the makeup business, up and coming MUAs are finding it difficult to breakthrough.

In my opinion however I believe your success in any field of business is dependent on how well you “tame” your brand.

I happen to know a couple of makeup artists  and through conversation I figured that it’s not as easy to establish clients these days and so I put it to thought and below are some of the ideas I would have put to life if I was a Makeup artist (and of course I’d make an awesome one if I was one 😉).

 

Show Off

I’m definitely going to show off to the world how gifted my hands are. How?! I’d work at creating all the creative looks I can create and exhibit them through all the mediums I have access to.
That way the people on my timelines would know me for that stuff I’m made of.
This may pave way for recommendations, and networking opportunities for individuals or companies who may want to work with me.

Network
You’ll definitely find me networking with wedding planners , event organizers, hairdressers and other professionals who are inclined toward my line of work.
I’ll as well take the opportunity to talk about my brand at any opportunity I get, say I sit by a young lady in a ‘trotro’ I’ll definitely find a way to tell her about my brand …cos who knows she is probably a potential client.
Not forgetting to carry my business card with me all the time .

 

Take Advantage of My Social Media

I have come to realize that most of the MUAs in my part of the world despite the fact that they are undoubtedly good at what they do. They have had the chance to get their brand somewhere as a result of the people they work with … and these are popular people obviously.
Therefore what I’ll do is to send mails or DMs very professionally to people in this regard selling to them my brand. Or ask people within my circle to introduce me to people within those circles.

 

Events and MasterClasses

This is yet another way to get some good grounding for your brand as a make up artist and also a way to make some good money.
Networking opportunities are as well open in this regard.
I’d just get my thinking cap on like I always do, come up with a creative concept which would appeal to my target audience and put it to life.

Pray 🙏🏾

It is very important to commit your business into the hands of God because in as much as we have all the ideas and concepts in our heads the grace and favor of God is undoubtedly needed to ensure progress.
Yes so I’ll do well to pray for God’s blessings and grace.
