My favourite part of my 'Body Art For Makeup Excellence' course is the exploration with my fellow artists on out opinion of ourselves as artists. I am soooooo curious about this topic as the more I delve into the topic... the more I discover we are most definitely our own worst enemy.
The exercise we do at the beginning of the course really gives artists the opportunity to interrupt the thoughts we have that we think are real that are not useful to our career... and replace them with something more empowering... a way to create ourselves as the kind of artists we think we are fighting to become.
It's so simple and produces amazing results!
I do this for myself nearly every day and constantly surprise myself with what I can achieve even though something inside likes to tell me I can't. In the Green Brush Project we call it 'negative ninjas'... the ninjas that sneak up out of nowhere and like to cut you down. I also have more MA+ names for them too.
This is the very core of the Green Brush Project... which is being reinvented to be more accessible to more artists as we speak! Stay tuned.... website coming soon!
This week I received an email form one of my past students /artists who wanted to share a recent success of hers.
I can't even BEGIN to tell you how happy I was to hear this. THIS is the reason I do the courses I do... because when a makeup artist has personal freedom around what we do... not only do we have more fulfilling careers... our clients benefit with happier and more confident artists... this is a huge victory!
Other small victories like "I now understand contouring" and 'Last week I completely nailed the perfect liquid winged eyeliner and I usually struggle with that" might be small off the cuff to the makeup artists saying it to me... but I really get how huge that is!
With more and more stories coming back to me like this... I know this course is definitely worth the hard work to create it,.. its becoming a game changer for so many artists whom have done it.
I know I am onto something special here with this course... just having other artists understand body art has NOTHING to do with the intentions of the course is the challenge. I hope more victory stories like this have artist see when the unique benefits are.
Thank you Diane for sharing your story! This warms the cockles of my heart.
