  • go away_ i'm reading

    I spent my whole life training and working as a mortician. I went to mortuary school after college, graduated and worked as an embalmed/funeral director for years. I did plenty of makeup and hair on the deceased as well but it is very different in terms of what you want your subjects to look like. For the last six years I have been putting makeup on people in my spare time for pretty much nothing. Small events, like little lingerie shows, sweet sixteens & quincineras, makeover parties, bachelorette parties. I also sell makeup as a distributor for a private company from home. I don't WANT to be a salesperson, though. I want to do makeup. But....I'm old. I'm thirty four. That is old to start a new career. Would anyone even take me seriously? I have been looking into MakeUp ForEver Academy. I want to enroll. But who would take me seriously? I just feel like I should have done this younger if at all. I don't care about being an influencer or getting rich off of it. I would just enjoy doing something I love.

    I am such a huge fan of yours. I don't really like talking about myself, but I can remember when I was a kid sitting in my room reading Fangoria magazine that my dad tossed in my room thinking it would scare me, and just being fascinated with the effects. I started drawing on whatever material I could find because I didn't/couldn't have anything. I wanted to learn how to do what they did. But growing up in my home was absolute torture and had enough on my plate. Being abused by my whole family and kids from school and neighborhood, I never had the confidence to pursue my dreams, then as I got older and my dad was gone I had to get a job just to survive, for me and the rest of my family. I'm still struggling just to get the right equipment, but I have some stuff on it's way so I can really start practicing. But I never had the time to learn anything. I tried, I wanted so badly to go to Tom Savini's art school since I was about 18....I think. I have always been overweight and thought that no matter what I did no one would pay attention. I am in the process now of learning SFX and regular makeup but SFX is what I desperately want, I love horror and gore and want to be able to freak people out OR show them something beautiful without worrying about how fat I am and how nothing looks good because I'm overweight. I also struggle with social anxiety, regular severe anxiety and depression and PCOS which makes it super difficult to lose weight. I'm a super weirdo and freak and not afraid to admit it anymore. I have always welcomed strange and unusual people and things. But watching your videos has helped me so much, I love them I love what you do and I think you're amazing and I hope to be as amazing as you someday. I do some photography (unfortunately with a cell phone, but it works for now, and I have done some SFX makeup, I have pictures, but I will only link them if you want, I'm not trying to make success from showing off to a already successful person, that's not cool. I jst wanted to tell you how inspired I am by you and how much you have helped me learn and grow, thank you so much. :)

  • ILikeCuteCats AndICannotLie

    Mykie, your story is so inspiring! You were the one that really kickstarted my love for makeup. I'm a dancer, so I mainly do stage makeup. But most of the girls I dance with can't do their eyeliner, so I kind of became their go-to for liquid liner. The fact that they depend on my (mediocre) skill and advice makes me feel proud. I like to teach people things and I love to learn. Your tutorials are awesome and you have a real personality, which is hard to come by in the beauty community. Thank you, Mykie! 💄😊🖤

    This is honestly really cool to hear. Im also currently in film school and am primarily a production designer / art director and wardrobe & MUAH in-charge. And while I am not actively pursuing makeup outside sets (as I'm a freelance photographer primarily) I still really relate to this video considering I style and do makeup for the majority of my photoshoots, as well as on short-film sets. Awesome to see people grow and pursue a career that they did not necessarily go to school for.

    The first time I ever tried sfx Makeup was after watching one of your videos and I used black liquid eyeliner and red lipstick to create a cut. It wasn’t very good, but today I’m doing things that 2 years ago I would’ve never believed. I just wanted to thank you for constantly inspiring people to get better at things they wouldn’t dream they could do.

    Hell yes I love Ruby! She was also the reason I got started in special effects at Pennhurst asylum. Now it’s been a few years and I’ve grown so much as a artist, worked on awesome jobs and I can’t wait to see what the years to come. You’re a inspiration girl! I also came from Sephora and then Ruby gave me a chance.. it’s nice to hear such a similar story and see where you are now.

    i am kind of terrified! I have been doing makeup for a few years and now i am going to beauty school, my dream is to become an sfx makeup artist (you may have had something to do with it xx)and in cyprus where i live sfx makeup is banned from tv (for real tho, all they do is a bruise and a drop of blood) so my only chance in the life that i want is to come to america and build my dream. But with this video i am even more terrified than i was before, i feel like i have no chance to my dream, how i am going to move to the other side of the world, by myself ,barely any money holy shit...

    when you mentioned how it was sad that some places rely on follower count or popularity to get a certain job or such. this reminds me of how it happened to me. NYIB
    (new york institute of beauty) had a contest for high school students to get a chance to work on models for fashion week. we could enter for hair and/or makeup. i did both. i sadly didnt win because i had a small following. whoever got the most amount of likes got to go to fashion week. most of the girls who entered bought their likes, i didnt. there were 3 winner for makeup and 2 for hair.
