As A Freelance MUA Are You...
As a freelance makeup artist are you making sure to put money aside for slow months? This might not be possible when you are starting out and money is lean however, make this your goal. Like most industries, as a makeup artist you will learn your ebbs and flows quickly. For example, people don't get married in the Winter as commonly as they do in the Spring and Summer.
Once you know the flow of your business, you can make the season less stressful on yourself by preparing in advance. Start by saving a portion of each payment you receive to support yourself during the off season. Planning ahead will help you manage the stress of a slow period and ease the strain of how little you’re working. Anticipating this and having money set aside will not only improve your stress it will save you from having to take clients you don't want just to pay the bills.
