I'm Quitting Makeup

Okay, that title was a little dramatic.

But I've considered quitting makeup quite a few times. Haven't we all had a few moments of weakness during our personal journeys? Moments where we questioned if the path was right for us or if the arduous journey to success was worth it?

As an entrepreneur in the beauty space, this journey is sometimes discouraging. From Imposter Syndrome to wondering if the countless models and kit investments are worth it, it all makes me want to pack up and quit. This is especially true in the age of social media, where you have to pump out content like a machine and compete with a market of artists who are just as hungry as you are.

People rarely divulge about their hardships in entrepreneurship. And when they do, they're already wildly successful, which is hardly motivating for someone deep in the trenches of their journey.

So, as someone in between blessings, here are a few hard truths I've learned so far:

  • The journey, although long, is worth it.

  • Any long-lasting thing SHOULD NOT come easy.

  • God wants the very best for us, always! Don't doubt his plan for you. Meditate on Jeremiah 29:11.

"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope."
  • Comparing yourself to others will steal your joy. We are all unique and have a different calling in life.

  • People never post their humble beginnings. So stop comparing where you are in your journey to their highlight reel!

  • The mountain is probably you.

  • Your lack of consistency is holding you back.

I've been pursuing full-time makeup artistry for six years and counting. I started very young with a measly handful of makeup brushes and dreams. Throughout this journey, God has given me the strength and perseverance to keep going. Even during the slowest seasons, he has still proven to be faithful. Despite having to find jobs for supplemental income, he has still provided for me.

No matter what point you are in your journey, it's so important to keep going. Make God your business partner, pray over your increase daily, and keep working. It will not come to you. You have to be persistent and diligent. God isn't a genie--He is a living and loving God who seeks to have a real relationship with you. He wants the very best for you, and success is your birthright as a child of God. So why wouldn't you walk in this truth? Is it not your duty to be who God called you to be?

Keep going; there is still work to be done.

We got this. The marathon continues.
