Today we’d like to introduce you to Nadine Freire.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Nadine. So, let’s start at the beginning, and we can move on from there.
My journey began as a teenage girl who always admired beautiful woman and the beauty of makeup. Although I was never was able to afford nor did I know how to begin my journey with learning makeup I knew I had a passion to learn.
As a young girl who was raised by a father of us four girls, I had minimal tricks taught to me even as simple as a good lipstick or the coolest makeup products for my skin tone. I finally had my ahahah moment when I had another mall trip with my best friends and “another lipstick I couldn’t afford at MAC” Cosmetics when I realized there had to be another way. I knew then I had to work for the number one cosmetic line at the time and have endless makeup opportunities to grow.
So I submitted my resume to twelve different locations when the regional director for MAC Cosmetics was so impressed with my persistence, she called me for an interview. I have now been with the MAC family now as a permanent, freelance artist for over ten years. I will forever be thankful to that recruiter, and the MAC family for giving me a chance, the great opportunity to learn continued artistry.
WOW!! I now have been in the industry for ten years and have had so many great rewarding opportunities, just to name a few collaborations with multiple brands including Revolve Clothing, Beauty Bus Foundation Cover FX, working with Glamsquad, Revolve Beauty Pop Up, KKW Pop Up, TLC here comes the bride Award season, working with an Emmy winner… All I can say is DREAMS really do come true, they do if your work for them.
Although my journey has been such a fulfilled one I have so much more to see, continue to learn, people to meet and INSPIRE to CREATE through the beauty of Artistry.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
My journey has not always been easy as a young clueless teenage girl who became a woman who wasn’t well educated but had a DREAM to create, I never stopped believing in the process. Being open to learning, growing, chasing opportunities, getting back up, even when those doors closed and I had little hope.
I have been told NO so many times however I trusted that God had a bigger plan. I still aim to be the best version of me, still open to learning, open to educate, and open to create with love and passion.
We’d love to hear more about what you do.
As a creative Makeup Artist who’s journey is to INSPIRE to CREATE. I am proud of where I have come from and where I am headed.
With every service I provide, I truly work with my clients as an artist, a listener to their needs, to how they want to feel and giving them the experience of feeling more beautiful one moment at a time.
Good energy will always set you apart “make one feel how you want to feel.”
What is “success” or “successful” for you?
My view of success is:
To continue to grow, to listen, to strive, to be a part of something bigger than self. Artistry growth, Goal oriented, People skills, Give back, Volunteer.
