Hello James, I am new to Beautylish & was thrilled to see makeup artists like yourself here giving advice, article, etc. it has been a dream of mine to go to school & make it to NY. Follow my passion & be a makeup artist in the city I love. Doing what I love! I'm not there yet. My family came first! I do have a history of working in the makeup field. Could you recommend any good schools for me (anyone) to attend whose looking at going into this amazing career? And thank you again for being such a inspiration.
