    159: Unveiling Success: Crystal's Insights for Makeup Entrepreneurs

    159: Unveiling Success: Crystal's Insights for Makeup Entrepreneurs

    What if you could start over, equipped with everything you learnt this time around? What if you could turn things around and price your services to match your value?



    In this episode, we dive into important lessons from an expert as she guides us through what being in the industry taught her.



    Crystal Wright takes us through her remarkable journey, from her initial steps into the industry to becoming a mentor and advocate for makeup artists. Here are the key points covered in this episode:



    1. The Journey Begins (2:30) Crystal's journey started as an agent for photographers, a career she entered after a chance meeting with a photographer at a party in LA. This pivotal moment led her to leave her job selling copiers for Xerox. She later authored the "Hair, Makeup, and Fashion Styling Career Guide," endorsed by industry luminary Bobbi Brown. Crystal began coaching artists, dedicating 90% of her time to individual mentoring.



    2. Lessons Learned and Taking the Leap (7:54) Crystal recounts her transition back to corporate America, only to find her way back to her passion. A humorous anecdote reveals that she didn't even realize she was entitled to a 15% cut of her earnings at that time. She underscores the importance of advocating for oneself and the need to ask for what you deserve.



    3. Building Your Business and Valuable Insights (19:07) Crystal delves into the nitty-gritty of freelancing as a makeup artist. She emphasizes the need for artists to manage their own work, invoicing, and inventory. Raising rates is key, and she shares her journey from a $75 hourly rate to confidently charging $125. Crystal stresses the importance of setting clear goals and believing in their achievement.



    Crystal's journey is a testament to the power of perseverance, self-advocacy, and recognizing your worth as an artist. Her insight into building a thriving makeup business and nurturing a community of artists is both enlightening and motivating.



    "Inspiration comes from realizing your potential. If you can dream it, you can achieve it. Don't ever stop dreaming." - Crystal Wright, Breakups to Makeup podcast

    157: Embracing Imperfection: Lessons from a Makeup Artist

    What would happen if you allowed yourself to glow with the flow? To let go of the perfectionism and let your journey unfold organically?



    In this episode, Angelique Valez interviews Julia Dalton-Brush, the conversation is raw and honest sharing deep insights that blew our minds.



    Julia highlights common experiences that many can relate to, both in our culture and American society. Like the pressure to focus solely on work often overshadows the importance of self-care and personal pursuits.



    Further Julia brings awareness to:



    Creating Your Own Timeline:

    As an indie brand, there may not be a predefined path or support system. However, this allows you the freedom to create your own timeline and shape your brand according to your vision and goals.



    Embracing Reality and Letting Go of Perfection:

    Your grandiose vision may not always align with reality, and that's okay. Understanding that your vision is personal, and others will still appreciate and value your work can help you move forward without being hindered by unobtainable expectations.



    Dealing with Disappointment and Counting Your Blessings:

    Disappointments and closed doors are inevitable in the entrepreneurial journey. It's essential to maintain perspective and not let setbacks define your self-worth. By focusing on gratitude and realizing that new and better opportunities may come along, you can navigate through disappointments with resilience and optimism.



    Tune in to this episode for a candid and empowering conversation that encourages self-reflection and growth. Together, let's explore the importance of self-care, finding balance, and the pursuit of happiness.



    “Sometimes all you can do is good enough. Don't let grandiose ideas that are unobtainable stop you from jumping in and doing what you want to do because you're the only one with that in your head."
