    Life After MAC

    I'm new here so hello to everyone!

    I have been a makeup artist since 20 years old and I just turned 30 in April (which was terrifying for me, hahaha)

    I have recently ended my time with MAC. I was with them in total for almost 3 years. When I was working for Mac, I was a 3rd key manager for a year and a half, and then a perm part time artist for the reminder. Currently I'm in a rut. I feel like once you've worked for MAC, there's really no where else to go. In terms of working for other companies, for me personally.

    I have done freelance but mostly bridal/prom/event work. And as much as I love bridal, I feel that, I need to depart from that genre of makeup. I really love fashion and more of creative/editorial/artsy work. I'm very aware that the fashion industry is crazy but it's something I haven't dealt with and I think it would be exciting!

    This time for me is weird because I don't have much work coming my way at the moment. I work on my blog and post looks on social media. It gives me a lot of freedom with experimenting with my skills and makeup. I'm really enjoying that part of it.

    For those of you who have worked for MAC in the past (or any cosmetic company), what did you do after your time with the company has ended? Any advice you can give me?
    As far as freelance goes, what type of work is your favourite? Any advice on working in the fashion industry? What is your experience been like?
