The community that I have chosen to research (as of this moment) will be those that love to play with/do makeup and are passionate about it (makeup artist, beauty artist, aesthetician, even sales associate…).
I want to meet with and gain insight into some areas of the field that I do not have as much familiarity with, such as those whom work in theater, perhaps a plastic surgeons office (they sell heavy duty stuff), and maybe even someone who runs the cosmetics counter at a drug store..there’s obviously a reason they’re there versus running a register at a gas station.
To sit as a client and report my experience, as well as to interview artists who have had formal education as well as non whatsoever are my definite goals starting out. I think that these will relay a broad range of messages about the subject to a potential reader.
The hope for my project will be gain a well rounded understanding of the subject in all of it’s attainable aspects that I can find in Lexington, and hopefully this will open my mind to other possible opportunities for working in these fields.
