Staying Distant as a Makeup Artist
COVID-19 - It's definitely a different world out there. Once commercial production and private events start back up, it will be a new plan of action. Social distancing is not quite possible as a makeup artist.
The best thing about having 30+ years in this industry is that I've always practiced sanitizing and disinfecting guidelines. Now, both my clients and I will need to be in tune together in order to maximize our safety.
Will I wear a mask? Most definitely. Gloves? Yes, of course. Disinfecting and sanitizing every product and equipment? Always did and always will.
It is now a matter of being more aware than I used to be. Taking every cautious step along the way to guarantee I stay healthy and those in my makeup chair remain healthy.
So as we welcome this new lifestyle change, I hope everyone, clients, customers, friends and family will continue to support those who put their health at risk to create and perform their jobs in the best way possible.
