Hey Gorgeous Bridal Beauty Pros!

Welcome to a heart-to-heart session today! I’m super excited to chat about something that’s been on my mind


 Embracing Imperfections:

So, confession time! I’ve got tons of scripts ready to roll, sitting pretty on my computer. But here’s the kicker—I’ve been delaying hitting that record button.

Why? Because sometimes I feel like I need the perfect set-up. Like, I can’t show up without my makeup done or my hair washed.

Silly, right?

I’ve been holding back valuable resources just because my hair wasn’t having a great day.

It’s time to get real, ditch the perfectionism, and show up for you guys!

A Heartfelt Apology

First things first—I owe you a massive apology. I’ve been getting your messages, feeling the podcast love, and yet, I’ve been procrastinating on the next episode. I’m genuinely sorry for making you wait.

Epsiode Notes for How Bridal Makeup Artists are Wasting Time in their Beauty Business and How to Get it Back!

Time Suck #1 :Social Media Shenanigans

We love scrolling, but is it getting us results? So many makeup artists spend hours posting without seeing any engagement.

Why? It’s often because our brand message isn’t hitting home with our future clients. Let’s fix that!

  • Know Your Ideal Client: Close your eyes and picture your dream bride. How old is she? What’s her vibe? Knowing this helps you tailor your message and content.

  • Stand Out: Be the unique you! Showcase what makes you different from every other makeup artist out there. Consistency is key, darling!

  • Engage, Don’t Just Post: Social media is a two-way street. Engage with your followers, comment on potential clients’ posts, and build a community. It’s not just a sales pitch!

Time Suck #2: Admin Antics: Outsource or Automate

Admin tasks, anyone? Replying to emails, sending contracts—hamster wheel alert!

But fear not, we’ve got strategies.

Streamline Communication: Templates are your new BFF. Save those repetitive answers in a Google Doc, or better yet, get a virtual assistant to handle them!


Embrace Tech: HoneyBook is the magic wand for client management. Quotes, contracts, invoices—it’s like a spa day for your admin tasks!


Numbers Made Fun: QuickBooks and a bookkeeper can save you from the accounting abyss. It’s like turning numbers into your personal game of Sudoku.

Time Suck #3: Saying YES to everything

Master the art of saying NO: It’s time to be strategic and prioritize.

  • Be Choosy: Not every opportunity is your opportunity. Focus on gigs aligned with your brand and goals.

  • Reflect on Mistakes: It’s okay; we’ve all been there. If past yeses felt more like burdens, let’s learn from them and grow.

  • Prioritize Yourself: Collaboration should be a two-way street. Saying no to misaligned opportunities means saying yes to your own well-being.
