Today we’d like to introduce you to Knarik Arzumanyan.
Knarik, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I was born and raised In Yerevan, Armenia. In 2012, with my family, we moved to live in the USA. Before to move, I decided to learn what I was always wanting to learn-doing makeup. Why makeup? Because I have always been in love with doing makeup and I have always been passionate to work with different types of people. I took makeup classes at the Armenian branch school of the Makeup Atelier Paris.
At first, it was very difficult for me to start a new career in a new country, I went through many struggles but never gave up. I have been working very hard. But at the same time, I had also so many great opportunities to meet and work with so many professionals. And all I have today is the result of continuous, persistent hard work.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
My road wasn’t easy and smooth. I was supposed to start a new career, new life in a new country, everything from zero.
We’d love to hear more about your business.
I am a professional MUA, a freelancer. I have been professionally trained at a French makeup academy’s branch in Armenia – Makeup Atelier Paris. I use professional grade equipment & supplies by Makeup Atelier Paris, Anastasia Beverley Hills, Makeup Forever, Kryolan, Urban Decay, etc. And, I always use disposable tools which are very important for my customers’ hygiene. I keep up to date with all the latest trends and technology in the beauty field and always accept opportunities to add to my training and experience. I am also extremely good at investigating with my clients to find exactly what their needs and wants are.
I understand customer satisfaction is among the most important things in running a business, so I make sure I communicate my job responsibilities the best I can. I absolutely love what I do, I love seeing people transforming and it makes me happy to make someone’s day. I work for fashion shows, film productions, photo shoots and much more. I like everything about my job. There are many different aspects to makeup artistry and I am blessed to be able to learn and work with some of the best people I know. I love that I can work on a wedding one day and the next day be in a fashion show, the other day in a lovely cast and crew working on some movie or theatrical show. I love my job, I love my customers, I love the personages and characters I create. I also love to see my customers reactions after the makeup is done.
