Why doesn’t your Makeup Artist respond..?!

Hey there, SO, this is a personal post which a lot of MUA’s / wedding vendors will probably relate to, but I also wanted to share this with people planning to book an artist/ vendor.  This is something you need to consider when trying to book someone. I don’t mean to sound like I’m complaining or that I don’t appreciate the work.  I know I’m very lucky to be in a job I love doing and have such a passion for…!  But I also believe that having a life outside of my job means I can provide a better service to my clients.  Happy MUA means fantastic Makeovers..!! So heres the explanation…… As a single mother of a young child, I do have set times I work in order to provide the best service I can to my clients but also trying to maintain a balance for ‘mother and son’ time. I work from 8.30am – 3:00pm on clients, brides, trials and then I catch up on quick admin during the evenings from 9:00pm to midnight sometimes.. If I’m feeling burnt out then yes I refuse to work after 7:00pm and I put my phone/diary/laptop away..! So although my working day is broken up I am still working a full 38 hours during the week.  And then on the weekends I could be working anywhere between 14 – 20 hours.  On average during busy weeks that means working 50 hours /7 days a week for months on end without a day off..! We don’t get paid annual leave, we don’t get sick pay, we don’t get sympathy – if we are ill no-one cares – we get out of bed and go to work to beautify our clients with a smile (or a cough).  That is the nature of our job.
