On Thursday 22nd March 2018, all roads led to the Smashbox Studio Store for Lori Bee MUA’s first ever MUA Careers Event!

This event was aimed at established and aspiring make up artists all wanting to progress in the creative industry and nail those bigger bookings in film, photography, magazine and advertising. The planning and preparation for the event was surprisingly smooth, with We Are Stripes and VINE Creatives at the helm of all of the promotional and marketing elements, it was all so easy, and effective; resulting in a sold out evening!

This was an insightful event, which allowed us all to learn more about each of the speakers, and some of their life lessons during their many years of working in the industry.

Creative professionals and panellists, Asíko, Selma Nicholls, Sophie Williams, Vanessa Welham and Nene Parsotam all spoke with confidence and experience, as they advised attendees on the dos and don’ts of first applying to, and confirming that booking.

Sound bites on the evening included how to ensure our communication is effective; not just in how we speak, but how we listen; as well as learning how to follow instruction from potential clients, in order to not lose the deal, before talks have even begun! One of the highlights of the evening, was where attendees were given an opportunity to showcase their current portfolio of work to the panellists, whilst gaining yet more tips on how to improve the presentation of their brand; all over a glass of sparkly prosecco, healthy beauty drinks – provided by My Beauty and Go – and yummy cupcakes! This was definitely a successful event, which those in attendance are still reflecting on today. It has also definitely given me the big push to plan more events, as it all went so smoothly! So… Watch this space for another Lori Bee MUA Beauty event!
