If I've learned one thing from being a professional makeup artist, it's to never give up. Multiple times in life, you will be the underdog. You will be criticized, misunderstood, and unappreciated. On your way to the top, you will be stepped on, spit on, and sometimes, even hated. However, it is this treacherous journey to glory which makes the top so much more rewarding. If one truly believes and has the talent, ambition, and support, they will succeed in every desire.
