Re: Makeup Artist Position v Advertised on Monster

Dear Ms. Carter:

“When I need special event makeup, I head straight to Sarah Oliver. She makes me look and feel like a movie star…” – L. Smith

Shortly after becoming a makeup artist, I read those words a client wrote on a review site and knew I had chosen the right career field. I strive to make the entire client experience extraordinary in every way, but nothing beats the mood-boosting confidence that clients display as they walk out of the salon.

A Maine-state licensed cosmetologist, I am confident that ABC Salon & Spa would benefit from my cosmetic artistry skills. I offer seven years of salon makeup experience and proven success generating revenue growth for makeup and other salon services.

For my current employer (XYZ Salon in Sometown), I provide a range of services, from traditional and airbrushed makeup to eyelash extensions, facial treatments and special event makeup.

With the approval of the salon owner, I launched new services at XYZ, including:

  • Pageant makeup for “Glitz” and “Ultra-Glam” competitions (toddlers through teens) that doubled revenues for makeup services and also increased sales of hair, nails and spray-tanning services.
  • How-to makeup classes that reached filled-to-capacity attendance.
  • Specialty makeup services and skin treatments for conditions such as acne, rosacea and vitiligo.

Let’s discuss how my makeup artistry skills would add value to your salon. You can review before-and-after shots of my work on my Instagram, and call me at (555) 555-5555 to set up a meeting. Thank you.

Sarah Oliver
