Make Up Forever Pro Road Show ATL Bridal Class

 

This past weekend, Make Up Forever hosted the 2nd Pro Road show in Atlanta where I had the pleasure of hosting a class on the Beauty and Business of Bridal.

For those who don't know check out my first post HERE on the Pro Road Show.

My Class Focused on the business of Bridal Beauty, not just from a marketing type perspective but from understanding how to successfully control what you as an artist wants from doing bridal.

Many say that the Bridal Industry is an artists "Bread and Butter" which can be true, but it can also become your "Steak and Potatoes"..... if you want it to be.

This was one of the main things I spoke on during my class, not being afraid of doing bridal! It's pretty rewarding to work with every day women who show so much appreciation for literally making their dreams come true.
 

Decide what type of bridal artist you would like to be and simply work towards it!

Unfortunately we had such limited time, I honestly thought going in, I hope I have enough to share to cover a 90 minute class, turns out we needed a whole day!

I did speak on calculating your rates as a lot didn't know where to begin on deciding rates. I previously wrote a blog post here on working out your Daily Cost of Doing Business ( click for post) feel free to look at it and work this out for your self. Not only for bridal, but for every aspect of business to freelance artist. Fair warning! That post is half rant but very informative. I was having a moment that day :)

The business side ended with a mock consultation on my Bride to be, Road Show attendee Sophie, who met her fiance in a bar lol don't ask. Her bridal look is 100% all Make Up Forever Products, including the new Aqua Shadows which are amazing and will be added to my kit!







If you attended my class, I thank you for making the time to come and being so welcoming, I hope that everyone was able to take with them at least one thing that they learnt that day.

Thank you also to Michael and Mariel for having me and for putting together such an amazing event for Artists at all levels. It was truly a great feeling of community and knowledge.
