Description

#1 best selling author Chris Scott’s latest book, How A Makeup Artist Becomes A Successful Business, is a revelation for all makeup artists seeking proven career direction. This book successfully translates and delivers 30+ years of business success into actionable instruction.

How A Makeup Artist Becomes A Successful Business addresses and exhausts every topic makeup artists have concerning their careers. There are even bonus chapters that go beyond career counseling into career wisdom.

Like Mr. Scott’s previous #1 best seller, Face With A Heart, this book freely gives all the answers away. “There is nothing more frustrating than seeking an answer and only getting the mumbo jumbo surrounding the answer, and never the answer itself” Mr. Scott says. “This book is nothing but answers.”

The perception that artists lack business savvy is often true. The truth is artists willing to put in their due diligence in order to succeed, will succeed. This book provides the shortest distance between a makeup artist and business success.

Whether a first entering makeup artist, a veteran, or somewhere in between, this book clearly defines the next steps in achieving best success. Details like training, getting work, pro etiquette, taxes, best kit tools and best practices give guidance only decades of experience can offer.

Available on Amazon in paperback and e-book format, How A Makeup Artist Becomes A Successful Business, is the book all careers wish that such a book existed.
