Ever since my start at Nordstrom at the beginning of the year I have been ridiculously happy with my job. I have always ran my freelance makeup artistry on the side no matter what career I have had but I was never truly fulfilled until I started doing makeup every day and getting paid to do so. There are several reasons why I love what I do. The fun atmosphere, the competitive nature, the feeling of being valued somewhere, the recognition, I could go on and on. The most important thing though, has always been the clients I meet on a daily basis. The ones that are travelling and stopping through and the ones that come back again and again to work with me. I have been working for what I believe to be one of the very best makeup lines in the world since the first week of February. Even though I’m in love with all of their products I still love other lines as well and always gave my clients a totally unbiased opinion of what they needed. When people ask me what my favorite makeup product is I know they are trusting me to tell them the truth and not push something at them that isn’t right or easy enough to use. This has been my philosophy since day one. My kit is full of different product lines because the simple truth is that there is no one line that is best for everyone. This philosophy has unexpectedly taken me to the next level with my career and I have now been placed in a position that I’m a bit intimidated by but that I know I will be great at. I am so happy to say that I am now a Nordstrom Beauty Stylist!
So what is a Beauty Stylist and how is it different than what I have been doing? At every Nordstrom store there are now individuals like myself that are not paid to push certain lines. Rather we are paid to be the expert across all lines and act as a personal stylist to evaluate the clients’ needs and send the proper products home with them. I pride myself on constantly maintaining a student mentality with every line we carry and do my best to learn the pro’s and con’s of each product. If you’ve worked with me before you know how much of a skincare freak I am. Great makeup has to start with great skin. I wish I could help every woman I know to look better and feel more confident with her skin and makeup.
I officially start later this week and will be doing my best to make my business appointment based. If you or anyone you know in the St. Louis, MO area want some help in the makeup/skincare department or you’re a makeup junkie and you want to do an appointment for me to show you my current favorites and new collections feel free to contact me via text at (312-285-5907) or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is just the next stop for me down a hopefully long and awesome road. Bring on the adventure!
Me and my clients turned friends Mandi and Julie.
