Today we’d like to introduce you to Stephanie McCallum.
Stephanie, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I have always been interested in things having to do with beauty. Well, let’s just say I started to be more involved with Beauty my freshman year in high school. I learned how to do nails while in high school to the point where I started doing my friends nails, acrylics and all. My love for makeup began when I was working at Macy’s at the age of 20 while working i n the jewelry department which was right next to the makeup department. I slowly started to learn the different products and also different brands. Instantly, I fell in love. I started to go home and just teach myself different looks, I learned how to slay my everyday makeup look. My friends started to inquire if I was doing makeup on others and started to push me to do so. Now today, I’ve progressed so much since then with my craft and have started my makeup business and have grew my clientele since then. Today, I am continuing to grow my clientele and work more towards to perfecting my craft and also growing relationships with clients becoming friends.
Has it been a smooth road?
It has definitely not been a smooth road. Some of the struggles I have went through are feeling discouraged when going through my journey. I sometimes felt my craft wasn’t meeting the world’s expectations and wasn’t receiving any support. I’ve had times where I didn’t have any clientele to where I had to take a step back to see if it was my talent that wasn’t all that great.
Please tell us about your business.
I am a makeup artist and beauty influencer. I am known for my goofiness and my Natural Glam I tend to achieve makeup looks without caking on too much makeup. My way of saying it is simply “Enhancing your natural beauty”. What I am most proud of is that I never gave up and how much I have progressed as a Makeup Artist. It has definitely been a rough journey but I refuse to give up.
Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
What I like best about my city is how city-like it is. I don’t see myself moving from Long Beach. I’m born and raised and love simply everything about it. What I like least about my city is the parking, lol. I think anyone from Long Beach would say that.
