Today we’d like to introduce you to Margaret Rios.
Hi Margaret, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
Well, I’ve always been into makeup and wanted to do that my whole life but I guess it didn’t really hit me until; a few years ago when I was in cosmetology school, I graduated from Aveda Institute, We had to do a senior photoshoot and the theme was Floral and Fauna. I found this amazing painting of a woman with a tree growing from her head and I just recreate it in my Model I created this giant headpiece she wore for the shoot.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Well, in the beginning, there is always a struggle to meet new people, trying to match schedules and wondering if people are going to like your work. Overall the smooth road comes along after a while then you learn to express yourself and bounce ideas off of people. It’s super exciting .
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I am a Makeup Artist/Color Specialist. Well, what I’m most proud of is my 7th publication! I’ve worked so hard to get where I am today! I’m super proud of everyone I worked to get me those publications! What sets me apart from others is that in everything I do; I make sure to involve the client where it’s for bridal shoot or face painting, I make sure they like it and if not I will start all over again. I want to keep my clients satisfied and that their opinion matters.
Are there any apps, books, podcasts, blogs or other resources you think our readers should check out?
YouTube; I watch tons of make-up reviews on products so I can rebuild my makeup kits.
