“Build your own dreams, or someone else will hire you to build theirs.”
– Farrah Gray
As a young girl who adored her art classes in school, Faye Wang loved to be creative and play with colors. As she grew, so did her budding love for makeup that eventually flourished into a career. Besides enjoying art and makeup, she was fascinated with fashion and dreamed of being a personal stylist.
Faye believes, “Makeup makes me feel confident because I feel naked without any makeup on. I present myself with an “awake face,” which I think shows respect to others.”
With an adventurous makeup style, Faye opts for a very natural look while keeping things interesting by mixing and matching colors and products. Graduating from UC Riverside with a business major and B.S. Degree, Faye sought a Pro Makeup Artist Certificate at the Westmore Academy of Cosmetic Arts.
“I feel creative and filled with joy when doing makeup because this is something I feel unique and professional doing. I found my confidence while doing makeup because I can create makeup that my friends and clients fall in love with,” Faye said.
As an open-minded, optimistic, “happy queen (shopaholic),” Faye is a team player who is always ready to support her teammates and fellow artists. Her three coveted beauty products that she would never give up are a lip-gloss, eyeliner, and eyebrow pencil. When working, her favorite type of makeup look to recreate is any high fashion style.
Faye further adds, “However, my biggest pet peeve is when face powder is not blended well down the neck. The flash photography makes the face look 3 shades lighter than the neck.”
Her biggest piece of advice is that there is no trick to become a pro in the industry. She recommends aspiring makeup artists to just be consistent and persistent when practicing and honing their craft.
