As we dive into 2024, it's not just another year – it's a chance to redefine your goals, boost your skills, and strategically plan for a successful makeup career that goes beyond the present. 

That’s why I’ve created this 3-part blog video series – to teach you practical steps to set & achieve your makeup career goals, so this year becomes a milestone in your MUA journey.

Firstly, let's talk about…

The Importance of Goal Setting for Makeup Artists 

It’s simple: If you want to progress in your makeup career, you have to set goals. 

Not just financial goals, but also goals related to relationships, family, social life, and education. 

By identifying these goals, you gain clarity about where you want to be and what you want to achieve this year. 

Now let’s look at the 7 tips you’ll need to set and achieve your makeup career goals this year and beyond.

7 Goal-Setting Tips To Achieve A Successful Year In Your Makeup Career

1. Crafting Your Vision Board:

To start, gather magazines or search online to create a mood board. This visual representation helps bring your goals and dreams to life. Whether it's the money you want to earn, places you want to visit, or properties you want to invest in, add them to your mood board. It will serve as a constant reminder of what you're working towards. 

2. Financial Goals:

For financial goals, determine your target income for the year and work backward. Divide the goal amount by 52 weeks to arrive at a weekly target. This way, you'll have a clear understanding of how much you need to earn each week to reach your annual financial goal.

3. Work-Life Balance:

Make family, friends, and relationships a priority. Find time for activities you enjoy with loved ones, like a regular date night or spending quality time with family and friends. These shared experiences add to your happiness and well-being. By setting aside specific days for clients, having realistic work hours, and taking care of yourself, you show up as the best version of yourself for your clients.

4. Holistic Goal-Setting:

Setting goals is not limited to the beginning of the year, and it shouldn’t just be about money. Think about other aspects like relationships, family, social life, education, health, and business growth. Keep checking and changing these goals throughout the year based on how you're doing and what's happening in your life. Being flexible is important for adjusting and staying on the right path.

5. Continuous Education:

In an industry where trends evolve rapidly, staying ahead is not just an advantage – it's a necessity. Invest in your skills through continuous education. Attend makeup classes, workshops, and business courses to refine your artistry and stay up to date. Education is the key to staying relevant and successful in the ever-changing field of makeup artistry.

6. Business Goals:

Beyond personal development, consider setting business goals that elevate your career. Whether it's growing your team, launching your own makeup brand, or exploring new areas like bridal makeup, visualize the path for your business to expand. Regularly review and adjust your pricing strategy to align with your skills, to ensure you’re making financial progress.

7. Investments for Generational Wealth:

Think long-term and consider investments that contribute to your long-term financial stability. The makeup industry offers opportunities for growth, and wise investments can pave the way for generational wealth. Consult with financial advisors, explore property investments, and plan for retirement to secure a prosperous future for yourself and your family.


So there you have it!

The importance of goal setting and how it sets the stage for a successful makeup career.

By setting realistic and actionable goals across various aspects of your life, you'll pave the way for growth, fulfillment, and financial success. 

Remember, you have the power to manifest your dreams and achieve great things. 

Just stay motivated, stay focused, and stay dedicated to your goals.

Here's to an amazing and successful year ahead!
