Tell us about yourself
I am a Toronto based Makeup Artist and moved to Gurgaon about 2 years back. I have worked on many international projects in Canada and US like Washington DC Fashion Week just to name a few. Just recently I was part of the Makeup Team for India Bridal Fashion Week 2015 among other photoshoots and projects.
What does a work day look like for you?
My day starts with final prepping of my Makeup Kit. Once I am on location, it’s back and forth interaction with the client to figure out the Makeup and Hair look for the shoot or the Bridal client. My work days are long! So you need enough energy and self-motivation to keep you going through the day. Most importantly if you love what you do...Its motivation enough!
What do you love the most about working independently?
I love working as a Freelancer. I get to work on my own time, pick my clients, pick the shoots I want to work on, plan my vacations without any restrictions and most importantly...I am my own boss!
How do avenues like UrbanClap help you grow your business?
UrbanClap is a great platform to grow my business. I have made numerous bookings through UrbanClap. Good and Legit clientele.
As an entrepreneur and an independent professional what are the challenges you face on a daily basis?
Well there will be periods that you will have no work but the idea is to be constantly visible with your work and be on the lookout for contacts. Network...Network...Network...Keeping in touch with your network and growing your network of contacts is super-duper important in this industry.
