When I’ve been looking for MUA I’ve found a couple via Facebook, that could be a good starting point.

You need to make a facebook, instagram, and blog ( and constantly post pics of your work. Doing youtube tutorials on youtube also helps. And join

You can start getting clients by advertising on Craigslist.

Definitely get yourself all over social media–Instagram is a big one, just because it’s such a massive picture sharing site–and stay active on them. Another big thing is to make sure you have connections in the wedding industry, ESPECIALLY with wedding planners. A job where you meet a lot of brides can help as well. Start yourself at a very competitive rate and advertise on any of the trillions of websites out there made to support freelancers. If you can find a job in makeup, start that way. Sephora and a lot of department store counters don’t require anything but retail experience to get a job there.
