Welcome to the Color Du Jour Mentoring Program! I am thrilled that you are considering this journey, and I couldn’t be more excited to share this experience with you. Thank you for trusting me as an artist, an entrepreneur, leader, and a woman – I brought all my life experiences into the design of this program and am ready to pour into those that are ready to grow and develop with me.
Through personal experience and research, I have educated myself on all the tools that I feel will be necessary for your path as a makeup artist. By continuously seeking and receiving guidance (from life coaches, brand specialists, and even better, God!), I have the resources in place to educate and support you in growing your brand. I am here for you!
Makeup artistry is truly my passion. It is a blessing to channel my energy into such a creative space that blesses me in return. When I focus on my craft, my problems don’t seem to be as important. Ask yourself: “Is makeup artistry truly my passion?” If so, you’re in the right place. There will be so many variables that will distract you from your path, but if this is truly your passion, you will truly stick to it because ultimately, this is where you belong.
Through this internship, you will get personalized instruction that will guide you through starting your business, building your brand, growing your clientele, and opening up your own studio if that is what you desire. I have included live demos where you will be able to ask questions of me (nothing is off limits!), hear from a branding specialist, experience growth activities, participate in real case scenarios, and get guidance to build your portfolio. You will also receive email and contract templates to help strengthen your documentation and digital presence.
I am here to hand you the blueprint of tools/techniques that have helped me grow my brand. When I decided to start my own makeup company, I asked a makeup artist for a one-on-one session. I didn’t think it was an odd request (I do one-on-ones all the time), but her response was, “It’s best to figure things out on your own.” At the time, I thought that was the worst advice to give a new artist, but looking back on it, it was the best advice she could give me. Through my journey I have figured out how to do a lot on my own, but YOU don’t have to. No, this doesn’t preclude you from putting forth the time and effort. What it does is provide you with a blueprint and the tools so you will not have to “figure everything out on your own.”
I look forward to working with you! Bring your PASSION and let’s get started.
