5 Ways to Fast-Track Your Makeup Career

It is said that the earliest users of makeup were likely to be ancient Egyptians, who lined their eyes with kohl. Since then, the world has seen many makeup types and trends, from the porcelain-faced geisha’s to the perfectly contoured Kardashians.

Though the trends are many and varied, there is one thing we know for sure: there is a strong allure to the magic of makeup. A little lipstick and eyeliner can make any woman feel more confident and powerful, and a great amount of satisfaction can be given the artist responsible for painting her face. But whether you’re interested in creating makeup looks to accompany fashion moguls’ designs, making up models for the cover of Vogue or working one-on-one as a makeup artist to your favorite star, there are some things you need to do in order to get ahead of the competition.

1. Develop a Strong Portfolio

So, you have talent. That’s great, but it means nothing if you can’t show off that talent to potential clients or agents. I’ve had conversations with some of the most coveted agents in the makeup world, and when it comes to developing a portfolio, they say these are the things you should keep in mind:

  • Your portfolio should only show the very best of your work. If you’re unsure if an image is good, leave it out. It’s better to have only a few incredibly beautiful images than a large number of lackluster images.
  • If you don’t have any images to fill your portfolio, try to connect with emerging photographers, models and stylists. Keep in mind, though, that all members of the team should be talented, in order to create the best images. If you create a beautiful makeup but the photography is terrible, you won’t want to put the image in your portfolio.

The images in your portfolio should be representative of the industry in which you’d like to work. For instance, if you want to be an editorial makeup artist, you’ll want to be sure to fill your book with clean, fresh-faced makeups. If you like to do multiple styles of makeup, have different sections of your book dedicated to those styles, or different links within your webpage portfolio.

2. Assist the Best in the Biz

If you’re new to the makeup world and you expect to be booked to key a major fashion show tomorrow, your expectations might be a bit unrealistic. One way to get yourself noticed is to assist an influential makeup artist. Find out which agency represents your favorite makeup artist in your area, call them and make it known that you want to be added to their list of assistants. Have your website and portfolio in excellent shape before you call, because if the artist has an assistant opening, all parties involved will want to see your work.

3. Be Persistent: Knock on Doors, Pick up the Phone

If you already have a beautiful portfolio and you haven’t had much luck snagging an assistant position or an agent, you might be rolling your eyes at me right now. But never fear! I’ve heard it first-hand from many major makeup artists that they had to nag and bug and call and email many, many times before they had success. You must be courteous and professional, but don’t give up. Eventually those in charge will discover that a patient, persistent person like you is worth giving a chance.

4. Have a Strong Social-Media Presence

You don’t have to Instagram photos of your daily latte and tweet every waking thought, but you should have some sort of social-media presence. Nowadays, prospective clients, agents and collaborators are all on social media looking for talent, so you’ll want to show photos of your work and link to your website.

5. Be Professional

When you finally get your chance to show your talent, don’t mess it up by getting in an argument with the photographer, showing up late or wearing so much perfume that you make the model sick. If you’re booked as an assistant, you should be perfectly happy to hold the artist’s brushes while she paints faces. If you’re a joy to work with, you will be booked again. With a little patience and hard work, maybe artists will be begging to assist you one day.

Growing Up, Finding the Right Career

What do you want to be when you grow up?

Something every visitor asks your children and you always ask your children’s friends.

Well, it is not so easy is it. I, for one, never “grew up”, I only got older and but was fortunate enough to be doing something which I truly enjoy. When I was 10 or so years old my father had let me play with one of his old cameras he had since he was a child, this sparks a real interest and what was a hobby became a professional career. I am fortunate enough to still have the interest, love and ability to be practicing this 30+ years later.

For others, it is not that easy. Graduating from high school and having the burden of picking the right college of university course is a lot more difficult then it appears. Most students who end up taking a Bachelor of Arts, will later wonder why they wasted two years of this college or university years when they could have gone into something in which they have an interest and aptitude.

To suggest to grade 10 and 11 students to ensure their marks and courses studied meet the best interest of what is hoped to be their career choice is a must. Students must be pushed to achieve all their goals, to be told they can do it and be made to achieve it.

Live does not usually offer second chances and as such getting that all important education is the key to success. It shouldn’t matter what background, situation or circumstances the students come from, they should be pushed to do their best, study hard and find subjects they interest them. Getting that spark of acknowledgement, receiving that pat on the back for doing a great job on a hard project might be all it takes to ignite the fire and the drive required by successful students and workers.

Acknowledge their success with a praise and respect and encourage them to pursue this as a career. The choices of jobs is dwindling in sectors as the mass of IT jobs seems to be taking over the retail sector.

A few factors to help keep students on the path to success:

  • encouragement
  • praise
  • keep their interest
  • short study breaks
  • show an authentic interest in what they are doing
  • learn with them
  • spend time helping them learn
  • find designated time daily for them to study
  • assign designated work space for them to study
  • give them quiet time when studying
  • respect their space

Music Career

There’s no denying that everybody enjoys music. Whatever country you’re from and anywhere you are at the moment, you simply appreciate what music has brought to this world. Some are talented enough to land music careers nationally or internationally and some are lucky enough to enjoy a fruitful music career after being discovered by agents from music industries. While carving out a music career can take up time and a whole new dimension of dedication to your craft, many musicians enjoyed the process and achieved significant results from it.

There are a few ways to go when you decide to take up a career in music. Independent musicians are currently exploiting all the possibilities they could find in order to get a shot of being signed by music companies. If you’re a music artist, you should also explore all the angles so you can start carving out your own music career.

Quality work of music – You need to record your own craft with quality audio, instruments, background music, etc. Music companies are always on the lookout for the next great artist. They always look for professionals as striking a deal with them can be much easier than wannabe amateurs. You can start by investing your money, time and effort by creating quality music. Have somebody who’s also musically inclined to listen to your recordings to gain an outsider’s perspective.

Work ethic drive – Focusing solely on your craft can unveil a new dimension for your passion and creativity. Becoming a good musician doesn’t happen overnight. It takes years of practice and it also takes a whole lot of time of dedication to your passion. A very good work ethic can usually boost and solidify the quality of music you create.

Be creative – Do not be afraid to experiment on different music styles. The music industry is very complex nowadays. New genres are on the rise and most of them have taken the mainstream music by storm. Do not put a limit on creativity and imagination. Also be flexible on covering multiple genres. Music licensing companies usually see that quality as a big plus before signing individual musicians.

Good studio recording skills – This skill could be learned by trial and error. It also takes years of practice to hone your studio recording skills. A good ear and a keen attention to detail will always guide you on how to produce great results. Have your track or playlist professionally recorded to attract music licensing companies.

Branding and website – Always sound professional and stay away from old bad habits you used to have. The music industry is full of professionals. If you want to impress and get signed by them, be as professional as you can be. Also, you must invest in making your own website. In the technology driven world today, music agents will take a quick look at your website and decide if you have what it takes to get signed.

Get your music licensed – After following all the things above, it’s about time to reach out to music licensing companies to get your music licensed. You can never start your music career if your music hadn’t been licensed by music licensing companies. Monetize your work through music licensing and be discovered by influential people along the way.

Home Staging As a Career or a Business

Would you like to have a career or your own business in a relatively new field, one in which there is not already a glut of people already doing it? Do you have a knack for decorating homes or condos? Have you ever thought of the home staging niche of the real estate industry? If you have not, perhaps you should! What exactly is home staging? Please keep reading to find out.

A professional home stager has several duties. The primary one is to go into a home, which the owner is going to put up for sale, and do a thorough analysis of it. He or she will look for anything that might be unappealing to prospective buyers, then come up with ways to fix that. This process will involve the outside of the home as well as the inside. When they are finished, they will make recommendations to the home owner on how to improve the entire property so it is completely attractive to buyers.

Once the necessary repairs are made to a residence, the home stager will work on redecorating it. Again, the end goal is to make it as appealing to buyers as possible. This process may involve rearranging furniture and accessories that are already present, or it may involve bringing in totally different pieces. He or she will cap off the process by adding fine touches, such as fresh flowers in a suitable vase or attractive artwork. The home stager wants potential buyers who look at the home to get a warm, cozy, inviting feeling throughout the entire place. Happy customers have been simply amazed at the results of having a home stager come in and do their thing.

Although technically there are no stringent requirements for the education of a home stager, it is recommended they take some kind of formal training. There are special courses an interested party can take, for which they will receive a certificate. It may also be prudent to take some classes in interior design. The most important thing, in order to get started in home staging, is to have in-depth knowledge of what makes a home appealing to buyers.

Having a deep-seated passion for this is a great start. However, if someone wants to be hired by a reputable firm or start a credible business doing it, they would be much better off if they did seek an education from a noteworthy source in that industry. Typically, training is likely to be found amongst the real estate courses, as it is part of the real estate world.

A viable place to start if you want to become educated in this field is The Academy of Home Staging. Alternatives are QC Design School, CSP Home Staging Certification, or Home Staging Schools’ 21-Day HSR Certification. Any of these choices will provide a comprehensive education in this industry. There are also plenty of directories and resources online from which you can find a superb educational facility in the home staging world. Are you excited about this idea? If so, do not waste any time, get started on your new career path today!

I have become knowledgeable about home staging as a result of research and writing work I have done for several clients. They had requested I write about various real estate topics almost exclusively, including home staging. I do not currently have any links to services I have, as I normally cover a broad range of topics.

7 Ways to Understand and Improve Your College to Career Transition

In every person’s life, there are landmark points where life transitions from one season to the next. The first landmark in life comes shortly after birth when a child starts walking. This landmark is literally the first step that gives a child the freedom to act on his or her own; to get where they want to go by their own will. The next milestone is speaking for the first time. This is a landmark occasion that begins to develop how we connect and communicate thoughts and emotions to the world surrounding us. The commencement of school is the next landmark, which lays the foundation and cultivation of learning, intellect, and understanding. Graduation is one of the major achievements. This is where freedom comes to depart college with all the knowledge and wisdom from lessons learned, and make a mark in the professional world. Until we graduate, we can only look to the future to find our dreams. After graduating, we have the power and opportunity to actualize those dreams into present reality.

All of us have a dream, hopefully dreams. If you ask any small child about his or her dream, he or she will tell you things that can be beyond your imagination. Upon graduation, we get a qualification that has the potential to open many doors for us. Something that says, “satisfactory completion of course study” and “I have the capacity and capability to learn.” However, when it comes time to turn that capacity to learn into cash-flow from a career, many college graduates are discovering that the path to finding your dreams (or dream career) is not paved in the manner that it was promised. The time period between graduation and actually finding a career is getting longer and longer. When it comes time to touch your dreams and make them real, will you be ready for the transition?

If we prepare for our futures, and graduation goes in the right direction, the possibilities for growth can be endless. That’s one more educated and (hopefully) responsible citizen able to forward himself or herself and make a contribution to society. But if we are already in school pursuing a degree and getting an education, how else can we prepare for this landmark transition? Is there anything else that can be done to better the chances for success? The short answer is, “yes!” Here are 7 understandings that will prepare you for graduation and improve your transition to finding a career and actualizing your dreams.

1. A College Degree Does Not Guarantee You a Job

Let’s get one thing out of the way first; no one cares about you’re “A-for-Effort” (or you’re A+ for that matter). What was true 40 years ago (what your parents told you) is no longer true today. Just because you spent the last few years of your life toiling away does not mean that someone will hire you. Even though a university education is one of the best ways to increase your earning potential throughout your career, it does not guarantee it. If you have learned anything in college, you should have learned that nothing is given; everything is earned. The same goes with your transition from college into your career. A degree does not give you the right to an interview and a job. You have to earn that like you just earned the degree; Remember.

2. The College A.S./B.S. Are The New H.S. Diploma

Go ahead, punch your pearls. I know you can’t believe I just said that. After all the hours of sleep that you missed and money spent on coffee beans, how dare I compare the two! Now that you have calmed down, let’s take a logical and educated look at the matter. One of the things that you learn in college is that the more specialized that you are, the better your chances for selection. The higher the degree (i.e. Bachelors, Masters, and Ph.D.), the more specialized you are in your field and the more money you can make. So if a high school diploma is just a general education that prepares you for your bachelor’s in a specific subject or field, you are still in the general population of that field. Everyone graduating with you will have one of those pieces of paper just like you, and believe it or not, there are a lot of people graduating. What will set you apart from the rest?

3. Be On A First Name Basis With Your Professors

Now I’m not sure what size college that you go to, but if it’s a large university, this is definitely for you. This is one of the first things that you can do to set yourself apart from the rest of the general population. Make yourself a name, not just a college identification number. Many times, a professor may have existing connections in the field, especially if they are working in it as well! You never know what opportunities communication with you professor may present, such as specialized office hours and communication while in college, and personal letters of recommendation afterward. It’s not just about what you know, but who you know and how you know.

4. Keep Constant Communication With Your Counselor/Advisor

How is your college experience so far? Are you having fun and living life? If so, then I am sure that you want to keep it up and are looking forward to graduating on time in the near future. Sometimes during your years of study, program requirements change along the way. If that is the case, you probably don’t want to approach your “last” year and find out that you are missing courses from your track or have been taking courses and spending money unnecessarily; something that could have been avoided by communicating with your advisor. Going to see them at least once a semester will keep this from happening.

5. You’re Going To Join Social Organizations, Make Sure To Join A Professional One

We know that you did not come to college just for the books, so enjoy your years while you still can. Experience new things, find friends and make memories. However, in the midst of everything, do not forget about your end goals of graduation and pursuing your career. One of the ways to do that is to supplement the social organizations that you join with at least one professional one. This may seem like a trivial task, but it’s one of the ways to begin developing your network while you are still in college. You may get the chance to develop your career skills hands-on before you have to take yourself too seriously.

6. Seek Out and Take Opportunities To Gain Experience

Remember how we discussed earlier that the bachelor’s degree is the new high school diploma? This is one of the ways to prepare yourself and gain an edge. Separate yourself from the general population of people who want exactly what you do. Everyone will have a degree, but few will actually have experience working within their field, only aspiring dreams too. This may come in the form of an internship, professional development workshops, undergraduate laboratories, workplace shadow programs and a vast amount of other ways to prepare you for your transition after graduation. Furthermore, you know what you would like to do; do you know if you in fact like doing it? Imagine how it would feel to spend years focused on a future career doing something, only to hate it immensely once you actually do it. If this happens, what have you done with the last four years of your life? More importantly, what will you do with the next four years? Avoid an experience that many college graduates go through by exposing yourself, through opportunities, to figure it out first hand.

7. Do Not Wait Until Your Last Semester To Visit Your Career Services Center

I repeat, DO NOT wait until your last semester to visit your career services center. This is last, but most certainly not least of all. I urge you not to make the mistake of procrastinating on this one; like most college graduates do. You spend the first three years carefree and having fun, only to spend the last year trying to prepare for graduation and cramming all the career preparation tasks into one semester. If this is you, stop cheating yourself immediately! You are missing valuable information and resources that will help to prepare you to enter the workforce with energy and expertise. Services such as resume creation and re-writing, employer workshops, interviewing skills and mock interviews, career advice and job fairs are just a few of options that may be available to you as an undergraduate at low or no costs. These services will cost you hundreds of dollars after graduation if you do not take advantage. The point is to make money at some point, not keep spending it, right?

When it comes time to touch your dreams and make them real, will you be ready for the transition? Will you be as prepared as possible, equipped and ready to move in the direction of your dreams? I hope that you now have the knowledge and wisdom to pursue the career you want and actualize your dreams. You have the power to make your mark on the professional world. Will you take advantage of your opportunity?

Is a Relationship Coaching Career Calling Your Name?

Relationship coaching can help to facilitate growth, re-establish confidence, and provide creative solutions for the couple. An unhealthy relationship can cause issues in the home, at work, and in a individual’s health. But a healthy relationship can mean a higher level of happiness, peace and motivation.

There are many essential keys to manifesting a happier, more fulfilled and whole relationship, and one of those keys is spirituality. It is important for a couple to be connected spiritually and to understand the importance of spirituality to their relationship success. Keeping God at the center can make all of the difference. Too many times spirituality is a much necessary ingredient that is missing.

Couples face many difficulties and need someone who is specifically trained to help them grow and succeed. And even if a couple is not facing a crisis they still can benefit from coaching services. Relationship coaching can help those in crisis breakthrough relationship obstacles, and can help good relationships become great relationships.

Coaching can bring out many positive aspects of a relationship, and can provide healing and hope. There are so many benefits to relationship coaching for the coach and the couple. Being a part of the happier, more fulfilled and whole relationship movement is an amazing and rewarding feeling.

You may feel like you have all of the qualities to be a great coach. You may even feel led to step into a new career as a relationship coach. And you may be ready to help others transform their relationship in a phenomenal way. If that sounds like you then it is time for you to make it happen.

Five Career Problems of Young Managers

1. Early Frustration and Dissatisfaction

Young managers’ job expectations often exceed reality. Since their academic training may have focused on cases in which they took the roles of top-level executives, they may now expect to get a lot of responsibility quickly. Instead, they are often placed in routine, boring jobs until they have proven themselves. As a result, young managers may experience severe reality shock, become frustrated, and perhaps leave the firm. If the company has painted an overly bright picture when recruiting, this reality shock may be especially great.

2. Insensitivity and Passivity

Organizations are political. Often young managers are either insensitive to the political aspects of organizations or may resent them. Or they may simply be passive, hoping that things will turn out for the best. As a result, they may not actively explore the organizational environment to understand relationships and attitudes and clarify their own positions. Further, they may be unaware of the real criteria by which performance is rated. In some cases hard criteria such as performance are difficult to assess, and superiors may focus instead on whether the young manager fits their prejudices. Appearance, speech habits, managerial style, and other subjective measures may be used for evaluation.

3. Loyalty Dilemmas

Most people in authority value subordinates’ loyalty, variously defined. However, there are many versions of loyalty. Some see loyalty as obedience-subordinates are loyal if they do what they are told. Others interpret loyalty as putting in effort and long hours to prove concern for the company. To still others, loyalty is successful completion of tasks, or protection of the superior from ridicule and adverse evaluation by others, or giving the superior honest information about mistakes and potential failures. Unfortunately, young managers often do not know which version of loyalty the organization or superior-expects. Sometimes multiple versions are demanded simultaneously. For instance, the superior may expect strict obedience but be angry if obedience leads to poor performance. These uncertainties and conflicts may cause the young manager to conform to power and authority, to try to change the superior’s expectations, or to leave.

4. Personal Anxiety

Young managers may experience anxiety. They often find that, just at the time they are beginning to reap the rewards of their jobs, they question the value of what they are doing. They may say, “I am making $30,000 a year, 1 but I don’t think what the company produces has much value to society.” As a result, young managers may fear that they are “selling out.” These concerns can lead to difficult choices.

Young managers can change their personal values, appear to be troublemakers, or leave their jobs. Young managers may also feel anxiety about commitment to the organization. Though they may feel they would benefit from conforming to the norms of the organization and having a sense of certainty about their careers, they don’t want to close doors and shatter illusions about possibilities.

Finally, young managers may feel anxious about being dependent on others in the organization. Just at the point in their lives when they are declaring psychological independence from home and parental authority, they are becoming dependent on superiors and others in the firm. They may also feel anxiety because others in the organization-subordinates, peers, and even superiors-are dependent on them.

5. Ethical Dilemmas

Most young managers face unexpected career dilemmas that force them to think about what is ethical and unethical. In making ethical choices, young managers may find themselves torn between economic self-interest, obedience to the law, observance of religious principles, obedience to a superior, and doing the greatest good for the greatest number.

Will a Secret Career Document Help Land You a Job?

People always ask me what a Secret Career Document is and will it really help me with my job interview. Anything that makes you stand out in a crowd of job applicants in a competent light is a good thing. Whether it is the New Year or any other time of the year, if your job search has hit a slump you must regroup and rethink your entire plan of action. If the regular route of resume, cover letter and interview have not been giving you the results you want, than what will?

First and foremost you want to make sure everything that you have been doing is as best as it can be.

1) When was the last time your resume was updated? Are you a good enough writer to create a resume that will improve your chances at getting noticed, something that stands out and puts you on the interview pile? If you think you need help, you can hire a professional or a friend who has had luck with getting interviews from their own resumes. By all means don’t just copy the free resumes you find on the internet, how do you know they will work?

2) The good news is that it isn’t really the resume that makes or breaks you getting the interview. Just think, they are all pretty much the same and if your resume stands out too much than that just means you are probably over-qualified for the position and that isn’t a good thing. The real way to get noticed is having a cover letter that grabs attention in the first place and makes the HR manager actually read your resume. You want to stand out in the right way, steal some tricks from professional copywriters who know how to steer the reader to what is important and make them think “I want to know more”. If you haven’t so far, get an Amazing Cover Letter put together so the interview offers start rolling in and you at least get a chance at the next and most important step, the interview.

3) Take preparation for the interview seriously, that means research the company, the founders/owners, the goals and mission of the company, think about how your career goals mesh with those of the company’s (are you sure it is a good fit?). Even though this seems obvious make sure you know how to get to the interview ahead of time so you are not late. Make a dry run if appropriate. Make sure you have Two alarms waking you up if it is an early morning interview. Most importantly bring to the interview something that will make your interviewer sit up and take notice of you over anyone else they may have seen that day, maybe even hire you on the spot!

What would that special something be? It is the Secret Career Document of course. And while not actually called that it is referred to as that because for many it has become the Secret Job Interview Weapon that virtually eliminates the competition unless they have one too. What it actually is if you haven’t heard of it before is a 30/60/90 day action plan of what you will bring to the company if you are the one hired. It allows the interviewer to imagine you actually filling the position and what that would be like. If you are in sales, will you bring in X amount of new accounts each month or increase your sales by a certain percentage for the next three months. What did you improve or bring to the table at your last job…this is a visual of you bringing your expertise to your new job or at the very least your ambition. It shows you are goal orientated, work with deadlines and have a vision of yourself already being a team player for company ABC.
