Being a beauty pro can be pretty time consuming. Especially for those of us who do it full time. Whether you’re a new beauty boss or a seasoned pro, here are some tips to help you manage your time between clients!
Practice makes perfect- If you’re new to the freelance world, you might not be used to having limited time to do makeup or hair. Timing yourself while practicing on friends and family is a great way to measure your speed, and figure out how to shorten your time with clients in the future.
Communication is key-Finding out the look your client wants as well as their skin type and tone can help avoid over packing or having to constantly search through your products.
Prep- If clients come to you, it’s important to have everything set up before they arrive to avoid running out of time. If you’re a traveling freelancer, try to arrive 15 minutes early to do this. Anything can happen on a freelance job, and you want to be sure that no matter what happens, you won’t run out of time.
Multitask- For MUAs, having a little brush cleanser with you as you work is a great way to kill time between clients. Especially if you tend to work on two or more clients at a time. If you’re working on a client’s skin and you’ve just finished their eye makeup, lightly spray down the dirty brushes and swirl them into a paper towel to help prepare yourself for the next client. You can also use disposable tools like makeup sponges to save time.
Ask for help- If you find yourself having to do more than two clients at once and you’re overwhelmed, ask a fellow MUA to come along with you on the job to do skin prep for clients.
Less is more- Always remember the more product you use, the more time it will take to work into the client’s skin, so try to use only what you need!
