Every now and then, I adorn my face with a tiny sticker of a key, symbolizing more than just makeup. It’s a key reminder and representation of my role as a makeup artist, a reminder of the transformative power I hold in my hands.

The “key” makeup artist is considered the primary or lead makeup artist on a project, overseeing the entire makeup department and taking charge of crucial aspects of makeup design and application. They are responsible for interpreting the director’s vision and ensuring that the makeup aligns with the overall artistic goals of the production.

Even as a solo makeup artist, this tiny key sticker on my face serves as a whimsical reminder of my craft. Each day, I show up to do the work, armed with brushes and palettes, ready to unlock the beauty within. So here’s to being a key makeup artist, charting my own path and bringing a touch of magic wherever I go!
