I’m making progress with this consistency thingy 😂 ✨
I tried learning makeup in 2015 but I was to resume Uni in a week so I could not even finish the classes, sadly by the time I was back from school they had relocated.
Fast forward to 2018, I got the opportunity to learn again and this time I promised to put in my all because I wanted to start something of my own and finally have something to make money from. Everyone was in full support, there were times I’d need models and all and my friends would literally leave what they were doing to model for me.
Other times I’d have to put it on my socials especially twitter which was where I got so many people and through modeling, I made new friends.
It was really awesome, people who didn’t even know or hadn’t met me were willing to come all the way for free. You know the feeling when you’re filled with gratitude you don’t even know what to say.
It was going so well, you know when the stars have finally aligned for your good and nothing can just mess this up, then surprise 😂
Where I was learning the makeup from, there was an issue, the lady who I was learning from was so impatient with me and it made the learning difficult. It was supposed to last for 6weeks and then by the 4th week, all I knew properly was the skin work, did I mention she was a student too? (Masters) So she hardly had time, I was always told to watch YouTube videos and stuff. After paying, if that was the initial plan thenI should have just stayed home right ?
who was I going to tell?!?!
There was already this pressure and this expectation from me and I didn’t want to disappoint anyone.
There was this tweet I saw that I made last year, it is funny now but it wasn’t funny at that time.
Sadly we already paid in full so I guess that’s why she acted the way she did, I just had to stop learning. It was sad because of the products I had already bought and the money that was paid, she wasn’t even remorseful. There was little to what I could do. That chapter ended.
It’s 2019 and I’m learning makeup again
but this time not professionally just for myself. Probably much later I will, when I work and start to earn my own money I could save up for it but I really doubt if that’s going to happen.
The funny thing about this horrible makeup experience was I couldn’t even ask questions, it was more like I was in maths class and I couldn’t tell my teacher I didn’t understand, so he wouldn’t shout at me.
I believe teaching should be more fun, teachers should be understanding and tolerating, teach and explain things with love, it is not everyone that can understand things by being unnecessarily tough, it was makeup, not war 💀🤦🏾♀️ by doing that, you’d put fear on the students and they won’t be as interested as they should.
There’s nothing I’d say that would do justice to how that experience was for me. Most times when I think about this and the money that was wasted I get angry but it is all good anyway.
