Being a makeup artist is all being physically available, your body becomes your asset and your brain becomes your guiding light. However when you take back to back Bridal Makeup Services projects and get really busy you enter fatigue condition almost like a Trans where your brain and body both starts giving up and you start basically working like a machine. I have seen makeup artist dropping on floor due to low bp or they were just way too tired. During wedding season you hardly get any sleep and not every client may offer food or even water at the site. Not eating on time, not sleeping enough and standing for 8-9 hours can create a serious fatigue levels impacting your work and profession. This can lead to irritation, you might even end up shouting at your client so please be aware.

Again sit down whenever you are not working. These small changes in lifestyle and the way you operate will bring in larger benefits
