    Hey Mykie I've been binge watching a lot of your videos ( mainly because of Halloween coming up) but you are so inspirational on keeping positive in this industry! I'm a cosmetologist but I have the same amount of love for makeup as much as I do hair! Thank you for the inspiration !

    Hello Mykie,
    I wanted to let you know that you are fabulous inside and out! I'm 48 and because of you I started playing with my own makeup for Halloween. That was a few years ago and now this year my friends asked me to do their makeup for Halloween. ABSOLUTELY no were near what you do. My point is you work hard and bust you A**! You deserve it. I'm so proud (for lack of a better word). You chased your dream and that NO ONE can take away. I'm sure all your " Zombas" are cheering and clapping for your proud moment. I do nails all day and I am not the best out there. I do however have the best clients in the world! You have the best followers! Stay beautiful and fabulous ♡

    I absolutely love this video❤ I have a LVL 2 and 3 diploma in hair and media makeup, theatrical and special effects. School is important for (as you said) sanitation techniques, but also anatomy. There's a lot of science involved in makeup, and how the skin works. But once again, you don't NEED schooling to teach yourself that

    You remind me of my friend. She didn't know a list of phrases/terms in the job she was applying for. And on the interview, she just happily says "I know. I know. Because *I googled them.* " but then she's just naturally a hard worker, so just like you, I honestly think she deserved whatever she got.
    Anyway, love the channel. I hope you continue doing what makes you feel good ^^

    Mykie I love you soooo much. I'm in a real stressful situation atm where I have just been offered a job as a trainee teacher even though I have VERY little experience working in schools (like a few weeks), but the headteacher said she sees a lot of potential in me. I've considered not taking the job but I think I'm gonna stick with it. Seeing how you have gone from being a beginner, getting jobs and succeeding, it's really given me the confidence to just do it and see how it goes. So ya, thank you b, carry on slaying and I will try my best to do the same x

  • allison king
    allison king 2 months ago

    This is so amazing and inspirational. I don't have a desire to do makeup beyond what I need for daily life (I'm a performer so a bit more needed than normal), but your hard work and dedication is so wonderful and refreshing. I hear so many people (women) say "oh I just fell into this" or "I owe this to so and so" when its revealed they actually put in tons of hard work. I feel like there's this stigma to play down the role we play in our own fate. But you it sounds like you freaking killed it at MAC and did what you needed to do to get where you are. Yes, people gave you opportunities, but as women, we should take credit for the amazing efforts we put in to make that 'ish happen. I know people who wouldn't have lasted a month doing what you did. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and stories!

    I just "unliked" it, just so i could like it again XD i'm sorry XD you're wonderful, Mykie. I can say, and be completly honest, that you were the reason I (now) like to wear make up, and i'm constantly looking for more ways to improve my skills. My therapist even says I should look for it as a career, given it makes me so calm and happy when I work on it. So thank you. Truely
