Bobby and I communicated via emails since his company was based in the States. Wow, a lot had to be done to be hired as a Brand Ambassador - Makeup Artist for CoverGirl. I had to send in a make-up artist resume, a headshot, a security/background check, and sign a confidentiality form. They also sent over a list of CovergGirl Natureluxe products to memorize and promote. All this for $18/hr for 2 days from 4pm-9pm...but it will be an experience!
Because I have background in business, it was really easy for me to type up a coverletter and resume for the event. Bobby also asked me to send the event information to makeup artists that I knew. A lot of them did not have makeup artist resumes on hand, nor even knew where to begin...so I thought I'd share mine!
The first paragraph states which job position you will be applying for. The second paragraph states what your education for makeup entails. The third paragraph lets the reader know what kind of experiences you have. With technology savvy people nowadays, put your portfolio link in there so the reader can look up your work online (especially if the job is being procured through a far away location). The fourth paragraph provides your contact information and thanks the reader for their time. The whole point of the coverletter is to hook the reader so they will take interest in reading your resume.
Remember, the coverletter and resume is there to hook you an interview. Being your sassy self is the other part of securing the job *snap snap*. Remain professional and always exude like you know what you're doing. As a makeup artist, you are a leader - leading women by helping them feel more confident. Good luck!
