Make Up Misfit No More...

...I don't know if I should continue using my old freelance business name (Make Up Misfits) or go under Makeup By Celly? Hm. I have to remake some new business cards since I have to update my contact information and I wanted a new, unique look to my card.

Originally, Make Up Misfits was suppose to be a duo-team with me and my friend but we end up doing our own thing and getting our own "clients"... and well, we're busy in our own lives to even speak to each other. I do like the Make Up Misfits name. Any freelance/professional makeup artist have any suggestions - or my fellow bloggers?

Speaking on my freelance, I did my friend's makeup for a concert she was attending this past weekend. She has really easy features to work with and I used more colors on her then I normally would to match her blouse. Unfortunately, the camera didn't pick up on any of the brightness or lime glitter liner on the lash line. I'm mad about this, actually - it looks so faded and creased but it wasn't. Halle-loo-yer to my mom buying me a new camera for my birthday. Gotta retire Big Bertha's old ass.



Eyes - MAC Gorgeous Gold (inner eye), Parrot (mid-lid), Plumage and Blue Green Pigment (outer v), Tete-a-Tine (crease), Mylar (highlight), Lime Glitter Liner and Blacktrack Fluidline.
Lips - Her own shade
Face - Nars Foundation, her own blush

  3. Makeup Misfits is a cool name, but you could be alienating yourself from older clients or clients that are looking for a simple or bridal look. If I didn't know who you were I would contact Makeup Misfits for a funky photoshoot, but probably wouldn't even look at your portfolio for my wedding or my daughter's prom assuming from the name that you wouldn't do it or that it wasn't your speciality. Makeup By Celly sounds like you could do makeup for any occassion. Good luck choosing your name!

  4. I prefer 'Makeup by Celly', it's simple, to the point and sounds more professional.

    I LOVE what you did on your friend! Looks amazing. Would you mind listing the shades you used?

  6. That's very pretty. I love the color combo. Hmm...how about I join your duo? LOL. I like the name how it is now. How does your friend feel about you keeping the name? Maybe you should talk to her first before deciding on whether to change it. Unless you want to change it and start fresh. But again, its up to you.
