MAKEUP ARTISTRY BUSINESS

Hi! I'm Trace!

Many of you may know me as Face By Trace.  But just in case you don't, I'm Trace, Professional Makeup Artist and MUA Coach on a mission to help Makeup Artists build, grow, and thrive in their Bridal Biz so that they can turn their passion into profit and enjoy life on their terms.

 

With hard and dedication, and by aggressively working both ON my business and WITHIN my business, I am able to book out my calendar annually with weddings, loyal clients, as well as attract celebrity and public figure clientele............

........AND SO CAN YOU!

HOW DID I END UP HERE?

The short version

NEVER in my wildest dreams did I think I would be a MAKEUP ARTIST, but I always knew that I was going to be making BOSS moves! I would imagine myself working for Fortune 500 companies and attending business meetings wearing a business suit, designer heels, a designer briefcase (now I'm showing my age, lol), jewelry, hair ...... ALL OF IT!  And two college degrees later, I was able to obtain careers with Fortune 500 companies and climb the professional ladder into some pretty good 6-figure positions (wearing  none  of the above-mentioned glamorous things).  However, I never knew that my life's mission would change, and I would now be the BOSS of my own business using these same corporate strategies that I learned to create, launch, and scale my makeup artistry business.

You thought a bridal makeup business would be easy to grow, let alone a makeup artistry business in general.  Everywhere you turn, there's a new Makeup Artist popping up on the scene.  And many find it hard to monetize their business and scale it to a full-time capacity in this over-populated space. 

And let's not talk how expensive it is to hire someone to create your marketing, answer your customer service calls and inquiries, respond to your emails, engage on social media, create social media content, build your website, launch your new offers, build your email list, and the list goes on and on.  So as entrepreneurs, many of us wear all of these hats while doing our actual job............you know, MAKEUP, that job where we use our hands all day.  So how are we able to do all of the above??? Whew chile..............

This was actually me some years ago.  No matter how many free webinars I attended, the numerous YouTube business related videos I watched, and the gazillion Google searches I conducted, I ....... JUST ....... COULD ........ NOT figure it out!!  And if anyone tells you they have cracked the code........THEY LIED!  There is no code.  But what does work time and time again is having a clear and defined STRATEGY!

YOU MAY FIND YOURSELF ASKING....

  • If I can just pick another artist's brain to determine EXACTLY what worked (and didn't work) for them.

  • How do I determine my pricing and packages that work for me and my ideal bride?

  • How do I set myself apart and standout among the over-saturated MUA market?

  • How do I get the brides I WANT? Or even, celebrity clientele?

 

  • How do I eliminate overwhelm and stay organized with my bridal clientele?

 

  • How to navigate during slow and off-peak seasons?

  • How do I ensure my kit is always READY, stocked with essential products for any skin type, skintone, and climate, especially hot and humid conditions?

  • How do I get my timing down in the most efficient way, while still executing a flawless face?

  • How do I up my marketing game to attract my ideal clients?

When I first launched Face By Trace, I quickly had business cards and a logo made.  I even obtained a LLC.  I meant business! I had brand colors and a vision board.  I researched and researched for hours on end on how to grow my business.  I listened to several webinars that screamed I needed an email list and a website. And while all of these things are important, there was something wrong in the sequence.  Things were not in the right order.  I did not have anything to put on a website and where would I obtain email addresses from, and what would I even tell my audience. I even reached out to assist a few Makeup Artists so that I can learn and gain experience, but was told nothing was available.  So there I was overwhelmed while trying to figure it all out by myself, and still with ZERO CLIENTS.  Surely I had my family and friends, but I wanted clients and new faces to explore on.

SO WHAT CHANGED FOR ME?

I HAD A BREAKTHROUGH

It quickly dawned on me one day while a work!! Trace, what if you used these SAME corporate strategies that you use AT work??  Would this help bring exposure to your brand to acquire new clients?  What if you followed the same masterplanning steps, will you hit your goals, which theoretically should yield an increase in your growth, and not to mention profitability and revenue?  And what if you just put a spin on a few sales decks that you've seen, will that attract your ideal clients?  

At that very moment, I realized that my 15+ years working in my career was not all in vain.  I was meant to be there.....because it helped me to get HERE!  I am exactly where I need to be because it worked!  And I also quickly learned that one having thousands (or even millions) of social media followers does not equal the amount of $$$ in their bank account.  Some of those very same accounts have ZERO REVENUE coming in at all! Talk about a MINDSET SHIFT!

Testimonials

B. Hart

BIANCA HART MAKEUP

Tracie has been an outstanding coach and mentor for me as she's really demonstrated how to not only be an expert when it comes to makeup application but also how to conduct yourself as a professional business woman simultaneously. Tracie has been very thorough when answering any questions that I've had in the past when it comes to business and is always my point of reference for any industry/ business concerns. She keeps it real but in a way that makes you feel empowered. Since working with Tracie, I've booked multiple wedding gigs on my own, with the help of Tracie's expertise. She's even gone over my bridal contract with me and has given me feedback on some opportunities in my contract to make it work for BOTH my client and I. That's Tracie, ALWAYS putting the client first, no matter what. Which is a character trait that I not only admire about Tracie but am inspired by it as well!

I am really grateful to Tracie for all of the tips and tricks of the trade.  I'm likely most grateful to her for affording me the opportunity, through her coaching, to work with Curve the Runway NOLA because it gave the courage to start my business.

I'm forever grateful!
