We had the chance to interview the brilliantly creative Vanetria, who has been using GlossGenius. Below is our inspirational Q&A with Vanetria.
GG: How long have you been doing makeup and how did you get started?
Vanetria: I have been doing makeup for 2.5 years. I started teaching myself by researching schools, classes, etc. Youtube has been a great asset to my education as well.
GG: Where did you get your inspiration?
Vanetria: My inspiration came from my teacher: Lyric Rochester, who is a Jamaican makeup artist.
GG: What is your favorite beauty trick?
Vanetria: My eyebrow isolation technique. I am the Brow Queen. (ahem, #glossboss!)
GG: What is your signature look?
Vanetria: My signature look is a soft neutral smokey look with a pop of color. This is paired with a bold lip or sometimes a neutral lip color.
GG: What makeup styles do you like doing?
Vanetria: Anything! - I love to do all looks from Bridal to high fashion, Halloween or everyday natural and dramatic looks. I LOVE my profession.
GG: What is it that keeps your clients always coming back to you?
Vanetria: I am always available for them whenever they need me.
A lot of them say that I match their foundation perfectly…”down to the T!” They have found that other makeup artists have a hard time matching their foundation to their skin tone - either too light or too dark. And I’m so happy to use my skill on clients to get it perfect for them.
They always look and feel like celebrities once I'm done.
They say I give them ego boosters 😘 😍 😉 😊
They also really like that my makeup application technique is light and never too much.
GG: What do they love about you?
Vanetria: My clients love that I'm loyal, honest, trustworthy, loving, and understanding. I spend a lot of time getting to know their makeup and skincare needs. (we all know how much of a rarity this is to find and how big of a difference it makes!)
GG: What are your goals in the makeup business 2016?
Vanetria: One of the big goals I have already accomplished was to enroll in Esthetician school, and continuing to further my education in skincare, makeup, etc.
I’m also striving for a small boutique that I can decorate and make really cute, give hands-on classes in and work from it so I can continue to build, build, build my business!
GG: What's your favorite thing about GlossGenius?
Vanetria: I love how easy it is for my clients to book online. Before GlossGenius I was scheduling out of a notebook, and it was a hassle.
I love how I have “assistants” that are amazing 😘 😉 😊 😃 😄 😚 and helpful to me and my clients. My fav is that I can have my clients pre-pay. 😍
Here are the beautiful looks that Vanetria has done...
GG: How has GlossGenius helped your business?
Vanetria: GlossGenius has helped tremendously with building clientele and alleviating the stress from problems like keeping track of appointments or clients cancelling once they have booked. It has been a total relief and I am so happy to be a part of it.
