Too old to start?


Well-known member
Do you think there's an age-limit to starting in this industry? (Especially considering the age-ism prevalent in the beauty field, but also just as a matter of the unreliability of steady work necessarily making it a 'young man's game'?)

Do you think it differs between bridal/event, salon work, photography, film, theatre, special fx?

How old were you when you started seriously pursuing a career as a MUA?

Hm, I'm not in the MU industry, but I can tell you that I have seen older MUAs working at counters back home. But I usually find them working with skincare based brands.

You're never to young to start anything. Follow you heart & dreams & you can accomplish anything.
