When you meet your child for the first time, many people find themselves in a newfound baby bubble that they don’t want to burst. But as with everything, maternity leave can’t last forever and the return to work is always on the horizon. If you’re feeling uncertain about going back to the 9-5 we wanted to give you an insight into why a Makeup Career is the perfect choice for Mums.

For new mums, going back to their day job can seem unappealing for a number of reasons. The wages and the cost of childcare may not add up, or the happiness of a new child can provide a realisation of how unhappy you were in your job before.

New Mums can be vulnerable to online MLM schemes or quick fixes to make money on a flexible schedule. a Makeup career, instead, provides more financial opportunity with that same flexibility to suit new motherhood.

Here are a few reasons why a Makeup Career is the perfect choice for Mums…

You’re Your Own Boss

Motherhood isn’t always predictable. There are going to be days where you want to be there for you kids. Training as a Makeup Artist means you can be your own boss, selecting your own working hours without fear of not living up to the expectations of those above you.

Flexible Timing: Work On Your Schedule

Flexibility is a vital aspect of life with children. Working a 9-5 day job doesn’t always fit in with school drop off or collection times, and can make things difficult when it comes to childcare.

As a makeup artist, however, you can work to your own schedule. Family can always come first and you can select your own hours to reflect this!

You’re In Demand

The Makeup Industry is consistently growing. With the post-lockdown boom just around the corner, rescheduled celebrations are going to need the Makeup Artists to go with them. Professional makeup is becoming a standard part of many beauty routines, meaning there will always be work.

It’s Never Too Late To Start

When it comes to training as a professional makeup artist, it’s never too late to start! With a huge selection of online or in-person courses available – there is something to meet even the hectic schedule of new mothers.

Your goals don’t have to grind to a halt just because you’ve become a mother. There is no timeline to your success, and makeup will always be waiting for you when your ready!
