I always knew that my very first #Blog is going to be on #assisting to #celebrity #makeup artist -Danielle Mahon. Now I can say ,this opportunity comes only once in a lifetime .
Just as I was starting off my #freelancing as makeup artist, I came across an add for position to assist to Danielle Mahon, who was awarded as makeup artist of the year 2016 at #Weddings online awards. A few weeks after applying I was happy out on my first road trip with Danielle.
I’m so sorry ,Danielle, for sharing this, but you will always remain my #Master(she hates me calling her -Master 🙂 )Honestly , when I first started out my freelance career I was clueless about #Social #Media and it’s power. I didn’t realize how hard it is to establish in a #Beauty #industry. Danielle gave me so much understanding about this Industry, she explained the use of Social Media keeping up with the latest trends, she showed me how to create flawless #Bridal look using the right products and how important it is to put all your heart and soul into work. She always reminded me by saying : Don’t let anyone to stop you ,from what you are doing, just because of your language barrier (I’m Lithuanian). She gave me a lot of knowledge on how to run a Master class and an opportunity to work backstage at Gok Wan & Danielle Mahon #Fashion & #Beauty Collective #Show.
I would highly recommend any makeup #artist to seek to assist another makeup artist even if that means starting early mornings like 4am, cleaning brushes and carrying heavy kits, because it’s all WORTH IT!!!
p.s. Danielle, it’s true ,sometimes it looks like there is nothing glamorous about this job, especially when I’m on my own in the middle of Wicklow Mountains trying to find the #Venue and feeling lost…
