So, I've been lacking on doing actual makeovers and spreading word about my freelancing, and as most of you guys know - I'm getting the ball rolling now.
It's at its baby stages in terms of spreading my name and actually getting clienteles and crap but hopefully by next year or even the end of this one, I'll have everything set up annnnd have actual work! Ha.
Any Makeup Freelancers out there got tips to share with me or suggestions?
I'm already taking advice from a lovely follower and will soon be making business cards.
My friend suggested flyers. But I hate flyers. I'm those people who throw away flyers.
In terms of building up my portfolio - I'm just asking favors through close friends and doing makeovers on them for free. They all already come to me for makeup so I don't mind that - plus they spread my name if someone likes their makeup. Win/win.
Oh, bit of drama I'll let you guys in.
Make Up Misfits was suppose to be me and my friend.
She does makeovers on other people and I told her to take pictures and send them to me so we can combine them in the portfolio. I contacted her through Myspace and Aim. I've gotten nothing.
So is it shady of me to take her off MUM's site and I go at it alone?
I'd like the support but I don't want to do all the work PLUS I wanna get this shit going now! Haha.
So here's my online portfolio: MakeUPMisfits (make sure to Follow that blog too!)
I'll be updating photos almost weekly so follow to see my latest and greatest.
PLEASE spread my name around if you're from the Bay Area, California.
Oh, and about pricing. Since I am starting up - what do you guys think I should do my flat out pay rate? I was thinking starting at $20 and working up depending on look.
Congrats to Saimese for winning my contest.
AND SHADYNESS TO SOMEONE WHO STOLED SARAH'S PICTURES AND TRY TO ENTER AS THEIR OWN!
That's some crazy ass bullshit.
Don't steal from others - that's lame as hell. And for freakin' makeup?
I'd understand if I was giving away a million dollars and baby Jesus.
BUT I DON'T HAVE A BABY JESUS!
or a million dollars *tear at being poor
That's all for now...
