MENTORING

HOW DIANE CAN HELP YOU  

The industry has changed. It's more competitive than ever.  To learn and get work many newer artists are turning to social media and often become stuck thinking that "free" collaborations, low rates or undercutting fees is normal.  

The truth is you can watch you tube video’s, read blogs, take seminars and classes and have a big social media following but still not be trained properly or fully equipped to succeed. 

Like you, I was full of passion, intoxicated by the idea of working on set for photo shoots, with celebrities or backstage on runway shows. I had talent and worked hard but even with all the information out there, I still struggled to get the jobs and pay I wanted and felt I deserved.

Maybe that's what you are feeling too?

But, what if you had a coach that will work with you not just on business and artistry but also the mindset and systems to overcome obstacles, fears, insecurity, lack of time, money or improper training?

As your coach and mentor, I'll cut through the fluff, share my expertise and help you get clear on your purpose, then we’ll create a goal-crushing plan to keep you on track to having a successful business and achieving your dreams! .

My Makeup Artists Masterclass programs have helped artists achieve their goals in less time with less frustration, and more success than working on their own.. Some things we cover:

 
 
 
  • Mapping a plan to achieve clear goals

 

  • Creating a portfolio that attracts your target clients

  • Important habits and techniques that you need to get repeat bookings

  • valuable business strategies to help boost you to the next level of your career

  • Techniques to achieve better test shoot results

 
  • Refining and mastering your beauty, editorial, fashion, or red carpet makeup skills

  • Industry and on-set knowledge to enhance your business and professionalism

  • Essentials for a professional presentation and makeup kit

  • Creating a brand that reflects you and your work

 
 

Makeup artist masterclass programs are RIGHT FOR you:  

  • If you are relying on learning from you tube guru's, instagram or blogs and feel stuck, frustrated or exhausted because you’re not reaching your goals.

 

  • If you have basic makeup skills and want to skyrocket your career but can’t figure out how. 

 

  • if You're just starting out with a big list of goals but don't know how to achieve them

 

  • if You're stuck in "free work" or "collaborating" mode and not booking enough or any paid jobs

 

  • if You want to leave your "regular job" and turn your part-time makeup career into full-time

 

  • if You're an experienced artist at a plateau and not growing or booking the jobs you want

did you answer yes to any? - i can help!

 
 
 
 

ABOUT DIANE AIELLO

MAKEUP ARTIST. MENTOR & COACH. ENTREPRENEUR. 

When I was five I snuck into my Mom’s “Avon Lady” stash of makeup every morning to paint my face before 1st grade -  I'm convinced this is how I learned to blend!

At eleven- I saved my babysitting money to buy Scavullo Women and Way Bandy’s makeup books, then spent my teen years with my head buried in fashion magazines dreaming about being a makeup artist.

 I traded in my college Criminal Justice studies for beauty school and worked my way from the makeup counter to the salon into a full time freelance career.

 I’ve owned a skin care spa and beauty boutique, and since 2007 have an award winning on-location beauty team, plus fashion styling for select clients and I'm a Beauty and Fashion Editor for a luxury magazine.

When I started I was professional and did good makeup, but I struggled and wasted time because I didn’t understand the business, what clients expected, on set etiquette or how to create a portfolio that got me paid jobs.

 My resume’ includes ad campaigns, national editorials, celebrities and runway shows including Elle, Vanity Fair, Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs and many more

Artists I’ve coached have quickly gone from  part time makeup work, the makeup counter or salon and within one- two years are booking backstage shows at NYFW, LA Style Fashion Week, national editorial bookings, videos, commercial and catalog work.

I can help you reach your goals and live your dreams as a makeup artist too!
