I have stopped the MUA Series for awhile because it is hard to pick up readers. But then there are two readers specifically sent me an email to request for more of the MUA Series posts. I guess I have to ignore the stats and really focus on delivering quality content that people actually reads.
Thank you for your support and I do appreciate the comments. So, here is another post specifically for those who just started out to be a MUA.
One of the biggest mistake of a rookie MUA is the failure to understand your client before saying yes to the job. Before you accept any job, make sure to ask these 10 questions so that you can evaluate if the job is for you or not.
#1 When is the event? What time do you need to complete the look?Asking the time is important so that you can schedule your booking according to your availability. Some event starts as early as 6AM, you have to consider if you are able to leave the house at 3AM in the morning.
#2 What event is it for? Is it a wedding makeup? Or a dinner? Or award night?
Knowing the type of events will give you the idea of the client's expectation. If it is a wedding, the expectation may be higher compared to a simple dinner or a night out.
#3 What is the client's skin type? And what other skin concerns that the client has?
If your client has a sensitive skin and you don't have the appropriate makeups that suit his/her skin, it is best to reject the job.
