I’ve been very busy with work lately. I’ve been juggling my time between work and studies. But it doesn’t mean that I don’t have time for my passion: make-up.
Early on, I have my target market in mind. I wanted to cater to their budget constraints hence the reason for buying mid-range makeup and even dupes. There are different factors that led me on buying similar products that led to such redundancies: impulse, rave reviews a.k.a bandwagon and nice packaging.
I’ve checked my make-up kit recently and I realized that I have a lot of redundancies. It could have been money saved or spent on high end products.
Moving forward whenever I am on the verge of buying a new make-up item, I’ll ask myself first: Is it needed or it’s just nice to have?”
It’s true that a make-up artists’ talent fee is directly proportional to the number of products he puts on the customer’s face. However, skill also is a major factor. Skill, in my personal opinion is a function of innate talent, dedication to one’s craft and ingenuity.
RB Chanco once said: “It’s not the make-up but the make-up artist”. Indeed, this is true. You may have a lot of make-up on stock, but it defeats the purpose if you don’t know how to use it.
