Beauty Muse: Doctor Jackie

The lovely and talented Doctor Jackie from Married to Medicine is the Beauty Muse for this month. I am a huge fan of the reality show – Married to Medicine. The new season 9 is currently showing on Amazon Prime and you can easily catch me watching the latest episode on a Monday evening. It is entertaining to watch the lives of different doctors as they navigate their paths in medicine while living in Atlanta. Doctor Jackie is one of the original cast members and she is fun to watch. She is so into her work and she is interesting to watch.

Beauty Muse: Doctor Jackie

For those who are not too familiar with this beauty, Doctor Jackie is an Atlanta-based OB-GYN famous for her amazing work and for appearing on the reality show – Married to Medicine since 2013. Doctor Jackie is the beauty muse for this month because she is a stunner, beauty, and brains wrapped up in 1. I still struggle to believe this stunning woman is in her 60s. She looks amazing for her age. Her skin glows, her hair is so beautiful, and she always looks well put together.

She is a natural beauty, and she looks fab with or without makeup. I would love to be a fly on her beauty wall to see for myself how she cares for her skin on a daily basis, but since I can’t, I have been busy reading more about her and I know her main skincare tip is to wear sunscreen. Doctor Jackie is big on protecting the skin from the sun as much as possible and her way to do this on a daily basis is to add a drop of foundation into the sunscreen. I think that is a fab idea and I will be implementing it into my routine, especially in the summer months.

Here is an excerpt from her interview with The list:

I put mine [on] with my makeup, so if it’s in the same area of my makeup, I put a dab of foundation and I cover my entire face and neck with it so that I don’t forget it. It’s almost like I tell my patients: Put your birth control pills with your toothpaste.

What Skills Do You Need For A Career In The Beauty Industry?

Careers in the beauty industry are extremely popular because they allow you to get paid to do things you love. Whether you become a nail technician, hairdresser, makeup artist, etc – you can spend your days doing something you genuinely enjoy. Plus, there’s a lot of room to freelance in this industry, allowing you to have no ceiling on your earnings. 

If you’re interested in this career path, you’re going to wonder what skills you need to make it. Obviously, specific skills relating to the beauty industry are required. Those of you that are reading this will probably already have training in some service areas – such as hairdressing or nail art. Once you’ve undergone the training to gain these key skills, there are three other elements you should look at to boost your chances of making it:

Social skills

Working in the beauty industry will mean you spend a lot of time talking to people. Clients come to you for services and can be in the chair with you for at least an hour, sometimes more. As such, it’s your job to make the experience as enjoyable as possible – nobody wants to feel bored out of their mind when going for a hair appointment or beauty treatment. 

Therefore, you need excellent social skills to talk to your clients, learn things about them, help them feel comfortable, and so on. If you can’t hold conversations with people, it will be hard for you to retain and gain clients. The most successful individuals in this industry are the ones that can create friendships with clients to establish loyalty. 

First aid skills

Initially, this isn’t something you expect to need for a job in the beauty industry. But, think about it, your job requires you to be in close contact with someone. So, what if something happens to the individual and they need instant assistance? Having the right skills and training in first aid can be the difference between saving someone’s life. 

Thankfully, you have places like MyCPR NOW where you can sign up for courses and get certifications for things like CPR and First Aid training. If you have these skills, you’re instantly more employable. 

Time management skills

The key to having a successful career in the beauty industry is to see as many clients as possible throughout the working week. More clients mean more money; it’s as simple as that. 

Unfortunately, if you don’t have great time management skills, you’ll spend far too long on each client. A one-hour job turns into a two-hour one – which isn’t good for the client’s experience either. Learn to be swift, yet maintain a really high standard. If you nail your time management skills, you can see lots of clients every day, ensuring all of them leave with a smile. 

 

To round things up, here’s a quick recap. Start by developing specific beauty industry skills in a particular service area, so you have an actual service to provide. Then, develop the three skills listed above to take your talents to the next level and make yourself more employable. 





Beauty Muse: Anne Hathaway

Another month, another beauty muse post. This time, the stunning Anne Hathaway is the Beauty Muse of the month. This beauty always looks so good with or without makeup. She is someone I can picture rolling out of bed looking pretty effortlessly. Her skin is always looking clear, bright, and blemish-free. I can tell she takes very good care of it. Also, this Academy Award-winning actress has some of the most dramatic eyes I have ever seen in Hollywood. They are so bold, bright, and pretty. Anne Hathaway is definitely a true beauty muse and she knows it.

I have been following Anne Hathaway’s looks on the red carpet for ages and she always looks well put together. Her makeup is always flawless. She usually goes for the same look – dramatic eyes and light shades of rouge lips, and the look suits her very well. She is a natural beauty so I can imagine how easy it would be for any talented makeup artist to get her to look her best. They won’t have to put too much effort at all. Hathaway’s look in the picture above is how she usually appears on and off the red carpet. It simply emphasises her bold features without adding too much makeup.

I think Anne Hathaway stands out because she embraces her distinct features. She is not trying desperately to tan her complexion like many women may try to and she is not trying to tone down any part of her. That screams confidence and that is her most beautiful feature.

What do you think of this gorgeous woman as a Beauty Muse? Are you a fan of her movies? Which is your favourite? Mine is The Devil Wears Prada. Please share your thoughts in the comments section. Thanks for stopping by.
