I like the one with C&W text laden lips, but the rest seem kind of heavy handed to me, probably closer to stage makeup than something for everday or even photo shoots.

^ what he said.

Samples of glamour / bridal / fashion makeup (rather than stage / conceptual) would probably go a long way and have much broader appeal (preferably with before & after shots).

Your port looks to me, and I'm no expert, like the upper end of the make-up spectrum. Some of it is so exceptional that I'm not sure where make-up stops and photoshop begins.

As above, you have no pics of "ordinary" make-up which is fine if you are not interested in bridal, glamour etc.

If you can carve yourself a niche concentrating on this stylised, high fashion look, you will be at the mercy of trends but might also get really lovely work as a more specialised make-up artist. Probably not here though. I'm talking about the big wide world.

I think all of the images are brilliant in their own right and demonstrate your versatility.

Thank you for your comment ?? I would add some simple makeup shoots I've done but it just looks like a mua wasn't even present ??

That's why I suggested before/after shots cheeky

Here's a good article about before/after makeup (although it's with pornstars, it's safe to view) that illustrates the sort of looks I suspect most photographers are after (contouring, smokey eyes etc.)

Its the subtle make up that shows a MUA of quality for me. Very few seem to be good at that.

Actually most makeup artists I see every day are very good at the simple stuff (ones who have been trained) but crap at the more challenging side of it

Thanks for the advice, I will definitely get some before/after shots next time I have a glamour/fashion shoot ?? I can understand why it would be good to see the quality of before and after. The only thing that's a bit of a black hole though is you don't know whether the 2nd image could have been professionally edited (therefore not all before and afters would be as realistic as you think) but going to get them done anyway x
