06 December 2017 by TFC Marianna Rudus, a fresh new Makeup Artist making her way in freelancing, has a unique approach when it comes to showcasing her work. Not only does she use herself as a model but she regularly changes her entire look to show off her impressive range. We caught up with the creative chameleon to learn more. YOUR MAKEUP WORK IS STUNNING. HOW DID YOU GET INTO FREELANCING? Thank you so much! Well, I was working a regular job but I always wanted to freelance because makeup is really my passion. I've been interested in makeup for some time now, so I was always creating new looks on myself. Freelancing just became a part of it as I was doing makeup on my friends and it grew from there. I always loved doing makeup on friends or family and I wanted to be self-employed. I haven't worked with a variety of clients as of yet, it's usually just others my own age. DO YOU FREELANCE FULL-TIME? I freelance part-time I would say, I started freelancing just recently but I would love to do it full-time.

For me, it still isn't a full-time job, so I don't overly worry about this. It is definitely hard when you're just starting out but after a while, it gets easier. You have to promote yourself as a makeup artist a lot. Also, you have to get in touch with people yourself not just wait for somebody to contact you all the time.

I think it's a good strategy to promote yourself and I like experimenting with my looks so I don't get bored as well. Sometimes I plan the look but sometimes it's just random. I'm always trying to think of new and creative ideas for my looks. ARE YOU ABLE TO ENJOY THE FREEDOM THAT COMES WITH FREELANCING? Yes, definitely. It's great that I can work whenever I want and I can make my own schedule. I haven't really taken a break yet but I do plan to go on holidays soon.
