What is the five small things quarterly membership?

Are you newly embarking on a career as a pro makeup artist? Or are you working behind the chair or the retail floor and want to move into working in media? Allow us to introduce you to Makeup to Go’s Five Small Things Quarterly Membership! The Membership is a group cohort & guided co-working session designed to help artists identify their goals, learn what they need to do to reach those goals, and begin the work to get there. All in a supportive community!


Sometimes you need more than just talk...

Sometimes you need information and strategy.

– What to focus on first
– How to Improve outreach
– How to go from just testing to paid jobs
– What’s in a Deal Memo
– How to negotiate a rate

These are just a few examples of the types of questions that can be covered in the Need to Talk Strategy Session.

I’ll send a quick questionnaire and we’ll go over my best advice, strategies, and resources for your unique situation. After, I’ll send detailed notes on what we discussed, and your plan of action.

Grab a cuppa and your best questions, and let’s plot your next moves.

Build a Book that Converts

So what goes into the Portfolio of a professional media makeup artist?  And more importantly, how do you build a book that converts to actual bookings?
Let’s face it; when it comes to viewing our own work no one is objective. We either love everything we’ve ever done, or we hate everything. The benefit of having an informed second set of eyes viewing your book cannot be overstated. I’ll go through your book and offer my best suggestions on what to keep, what can go, and where you might what you might want to develop next. AND we’ll make sure your social ties in nicely to make the best presentation to potential clients.
