Beauty Aside


How I Traded My Day Job for My Dream Job (and how you can, too)

Season 3, Ep. 1

Have you ever dreamt of leaving your day job for your dream job, but you just weren't sure how to swing it or if you'd have enough confidence to pull it off?

Well, I don't normally get this personal in my episodes, but I believe in order for us to grow it's important to admit, share and understand our failures, as well as our wins. My dream was always to work on films, but I didn’t know to what capacity. At first I thought I wanted to be an actress. And from an early age, I knew I loved to write, but that was about it. It wasn’t until I was was an intern on a no-budget short film in my early 20’s that I got paired up with the key makeup and hair department that I remember thinking, hmmmm, this is fun and I’m kinda good at it! This began my long-standing makeup career working with bridal parties, and a few big names along the way, that helped me afford the freedom to flesh out my film career, start my beauty brand, and reach for the stars (too much?)!

In this episode, I share my initial journey that got me started in the beauty industry, with tangible tips on how I made the leap from working multiple jobs that kept laying me off to finally working full time at my dream job... and from the bottom of my heart I know that with commitment and passion, you can do it, too!
