I did my client’s makeup for her niece’s wedding last week. We put lashes on her for the first time & I was really hoping they would stay on all night. Her makeup looked gorgeous and people in the salon were commenting on. As soon as they find out I’m leaving I feel like these women jumped on me like vultures trying to get matched to the perfect lipstick and blush. I get a phone call today from my client while I was on lunch and I wanted to cry. She told me she loved the makeup and it lasted all day. She ended up taking the lashes off that night. She also wanted to recommend me to her hair colorist since they don’t have a makeup artist at their salon. I could go help them if they needed it. It warmed my heart that she took the time to thank me for making her feel beautiful and to help me make connections. It’s people like that who give me hope again. People who care.
Tomorrow is my last day at the salon. I am happy sad. I am closing a chapter. I never want to become so comfortable in a place that I stop growing.
