We had the good fortune of connecting with Brittney Marie and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Brittney, why did you decide to pursue a creative path?
I pursued the career of being a Freelance Makeup Artist because doing makeup is a true passion of mine. I’ve had many different jobs in search of what would make me content in life, and nothing makes me feel “happy at work” like when I’m doing makeup! I love being able to express my creativity, and the bonding experience with each of my clients is unmatched!
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am a Freelance Makeup Artist specializing in natural looking makeup for all occasions. I believe every one of my clients, old and new, is beautiful before I even touch their face. What sets me apart is my strong attention to detail and my ability to give my clients exactly what they want. I want my clients to feel as beautiful as they look and be most confident when they get out of my chair. My happiest moments with each client is the final reveal! When I see the expression on their faces of how happy they are with how their makeup looks, I know it’s a job well done. I got where I am today by not giving up on my passion! It’s definitely not easy stepping into the world of freelance anything because let’s face it, the bills don’t stop. Having a consistent income is extremely important. So many times I’ve had to work full time or part time jobs to pay the bills and pursue makeup artistry on the side. It’s been challenging and if I’m going to be honest- I’ve thought about giving up on my dream of sustaining myself by just doing makeup. But that thought made me feel worse! So I accepted the challenge and I’m not going to stop pursuing my dream! I’ve learned that if I continue to work hard, and most importantly keep my faith in God, that anything is possible! I want the world to know that Beauty By Brittney Marie is more than just getting your makeup done. My brand is about making women feel confident in themselves. I build a connection with each client, and I do my best to make each client feel special, because they truly are!
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
LA is so big and there are so many places to go! I would definitely take my bestie to a few sushi restaurants. We love sushi that much lol. We’d love to go see a show or go to an open mic night. One of my favorite places to eat/drink/get dessert is The Federal in North Hollywood (they have the best butter cake). There are also a ton of hotel bars and restaurants to hang out at and meet new people and even spot a few celebrities!
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I definitely have had a lot of support and encouragement from my family and friends over the years. I would like to shoutout my friends and partners at Myraculous Media for bringing me on to their team and allowing me to be part of an outstanding company! They have believed in me from the start and they have played a large role in the growing of my business over the last year or so!
