    What age did you start the makeups and what age were you when you were doing makeups in the prison thing and the MAC store?

    Just learned from this vid that Mykie grew up right around me and it also sounds like she went to the same college as I do? Not positive though. Either way SO COOL! ily

    This was really helpful because makeup is the only thing that I think I’m okay at it’s the only thing I have motivation for and I’m moving to California next year to get my license to do makeup. I hope my journey goes like yours did thank you for making this video you’re so amazing Mykie ❤️

    No waaaay! Didn’t know you started at MAC Macy’s WG!! That’s where I was first hired as a MAC girl in 2013! Now I’m at the Bloomies. So cool!

    Eastern State is often classified as the most haunted place in the United States, though sometimes it's neck and neck with Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Louisville KY.

    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

    I wish I could like this a few times. I'm a fairly new zombae, but I feel like I stumbled on this channel at exactly the right time. Sometimes, it's really important to be reminded that taking risks and continuing to push through obstacles really can get you where you want to be.

    When a video pops up on your feed 5 months after the fact and you were never notified 🙈 Loved the content though especially the note on hygiene and sanitation. I’ve worked with a lot of artists who have no idea how to keep their kit sanitary and make it my mission to get them up to speed - we’re talking double dip mascara and lipstick straight from the bullet 😱😱😱 Fab video as always Mykie loved it!!!

    Ok I need to know this, if I went to boces would I have to need a cometology and sci-fi diploma to be a special effects makeup artist because I almost had one for cosmetology but had to drop out of it due to Heath reasons and though out the year not once were we taught how to do makeup. It was always hair, nails and messages.((mostly hair)) so I am a 23 year old mom who graduated in 2014 who basicly gave up on this dream because I was told I needed these things to be a official makeup artist. Please help...

    you just became my new favorite person. I'm searching youtube to find out if I should go to school or not. I've been very lucky to have spent 8 years as a face painter doing makeup on kids at events and then to fall into working a job doing zombies for a film and then MUA for another film. I've been asked to do some other work and I started thinking I should definitely go to school...and here we are...I found you...and no...
    I absolutely love the "can you do this?" and me saying "sure, I can" seconds before I research the hell out of it and pull it off. Somehow this is super rewarding to me.
    So thank you.
    thank you for this video.

    Omg I go to Willow Grove Mall all the time!!!! Also my BFF's husband worked at Terror Behind the Walls as an actor around the same time (we're all around the same age and he worked there for like 5 years)! I asked him if he knew you and he said he didn't but there were 20+ FX artists there.

    I'm totally not bashing in anyway... I completely support and enjoy your content.
    However, with that being said, in my state and other states.. If you're not licensed via completing schooling, you're not considered an actual MUA. Further, you'll get fined and prevented from ever becoming a MUA if you're caught practicing without a license.
    Just thought I would put that out there just to prevent anyone from getting in trouble.

    I’m so glad my friend got me watching you!!! I’m hooked! I love FX makeup and when she pitched your channel to me she didn’t pitch it as an FX Channel! I’ve been thinking you should go on the show Face Off and by the fact that you’re saying that you like to challenge yourself and that you learn quickly I think that you would really excel at it! At first I was thinking well she doesn’t sculpt and make cowls and make face pieces and make costumes. But hell I never knew what all you really did. On your channel you do stuff that your viewers can do at home which is so incredible! But I would LOVE to see you on a season of Face Off! It’s one of my fave shows!!! I’m sure you love it also! ❤️ I adored this video!!!

    honestly you are probably the first makeup artist that i watched that influenced me to finally start wearing makeup out in public. And not just simple makeup like eyeshadow and eyeliner and highhlight contour all the beesnees (is that how you spell it? idk). I have yet to wear liupstick but you inspired me to finally have that push to wear it. And I love wearing makeup now. You are amazing!!!

    I watch your videos all the time, even on repeat, and it has helped me with my own personal makeup and inspired me to do more than just my personal artwork. I realized the stuff I want to do is expensive, and while I can pay a bunch of money to help other businesses, I know these are all things I know how to do myself just need the tools for it. So even though something like tailoring and creating my own clothing from my hand and sewing machine, you've inspired me to get into it with how hard you worked.
    I went to college for computer programming, and your talk about how people think just having a social media account makes them qualified. That's how I felt about my degree, and that's how my degree is. Everyone and anyone can do what I did in college without even going to college. It's exactly what you said with your portfolio, needing proof. The employers I've had little luck with all pretty much need me to give them examples or create something on the spot, which is something I couldn't do/can't do (all my work was erased and I haven't been able to get it back) so I'm SoL and my degree means nothing (code changes pretty much bi-yearly).
    But my skillsets that I've honed through the years has gathered me more money than my degree, and it was through hard work and proper researching. So picking up another hobby that can be considered a profession is something I am now determined to do. You're such a beautiful person, and I am so happy you got to do what you want to do in life.

    I like makeup as a hobby but my real passion is theatre. And trying to be successful in theatre is so hard and it rarely pays the bills, so the hardships Mykie describes hit so close to home. So when she showed us that she is in a three page section of a real magazine and how unbelievable and awesome and gratifying this is for her I teared up!

    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.
