At the beginning of January I quit my full time job of working in a bar and became a freelance make-up artist. I wish I could tell you all how exciting and busy I am but right now I writing this with the third season of Once Upon A time on and my e-mails refreshing every ten minutes. It’s not as glamorous as I thought it would be.
On the flip side every job I do is amazing and I am making a few contacts for further work and I have learnt a lot about being freelance so I thought I would share with you my top 5 tips of what I have learnt so far!
*You will spend most of your time in your office looking at a computer screen than doing the actual job.
*You will sleep with your phone like a teddy bear in case a last minute job comes up.
*Business cards are super important – I got mine done by Moo Cards
*Experience is important, do every job that comes your way even if it’s unpaid
*Be nice to everyone you never know where that person will be in the five years.
So what have I been up to in my first three months, well I have done just about everything a little bit of fashion, some theatre and a few short films. I also have started doing weddings which is one of my favourite things to do, helping someone get ready for their big day is such a massive honour.
