Update: Getting out into the Real World

A little update here… I graduated from my esthetics program and got a job offer last week! The job offer is in a salon/spa near me that I think would be a really good fit, although getting comfortable with a totally new skincare line will be interesting. After working with Bioelements in school and getting certified in PCA Skin, and seeing their effectiveness, I’m definitely biased against other lines. The owner raved about the line they use though, and I’m hoping I can learn everything about it and enjoy using it as well.

I’m also hoping to keep doing makeup on a more regular basis, and actually applied for another position doing bridal makeup. I feel like bridal/special occasion makeup and that clientele is the type that’s most appealing to me, and I would love to do more work in that area.

Overall I’m just happy to finally be done with school and able to start my career, even while I’m “license pending” until January. I can’t wait to see where everything goes!

Graduation is Approaching!

Guys… I’m graduating from my esthetics program in a week. I passed my final hands-on and written exams with A’s and all I have to do is finish out my hours and hand in a giant binder of assignments (which I’m currently procrastinating on but mostly done with). I can’t wait to put this education to use and get back to making money! I have a few different options I’m looking into for jobs, and also want to do more makeup on a freelance basis, but I’m feeling pretty confident that I’ll have something soon. Now that my testing is done, I just want to get my binder assignments squared away and am excited to not be working for free anymore (once I’m not at school…my motivation to take clients here has dropped since I finished my sign-offs two weeks ago!). Obviously practice is always a good thing, but you know… I’m ready to move on.

Clearly I haven’t been sticking to my claims of posting more consistently, because I keep thinking things are about to slow down and then they don’t. But I’ll get there… hopefully.
