Deciding what you want do for the rest of your life can be difficult. Right after high school this is something you start to work for in college. Precisely the problem I had. I struggled deciding what I want to do for the rest of my life after graduate from collage, either to become a chef or makeup artist. I did not know whether becoming a chef or makeup artist was my passion in life. Frankly I enjoyed them both and couldn’t decide. I learned how to cook full meals when I was about nine years old my mother would call me to the kitchen to help her cook. I was always happy to be in the kitchen mixing up ingredients. There was something about creating a delicious dish and have people give you feed back on what I created, I loved it. But, I wasn’t only passionate about cooking I also loved to experiment with makeup. In my mothers room I would get such a satisfaction and excitement about dressing up and getting all dolled up with makeup. I would look like a different person after I applied makeup. It was like a Halloween night pretending to be someone else. Becoming a chef would mean I would be dealing with food not as colorful as makeup. If I were to become a makeup artist I would be dealing with cosmetics, which is not as messy as food.
Going in to Culinary School and becoming a chef has its benefits and its complications. Even though culinary and cosmetology are both a form of art the culinary world has a lot to do with food and messes in the kitchen. This art is shown when you decorate a dish with a simple flower or taste in food. When becoming a professional chef I would have to deal with recipes. Also making different dishes but not just basic meals like my mother taught me. Culinary school would teach me how to improve my cooking and different cultural dishes. In order for me to become the ultimate chef and a successful restaurant owner I would have to travel and find the next best thing. This would require me to go to many different cultures and country’s to discover and learn different dishes. Yes, the traveling experience would be exciting to explore and learn about food all around the world but I question this because I don’t know if I would be able to remember a lot of recipes. It would feel like school all over again with stress and memorizing readings. The satisfaction of me making a dish and making people happy when they taste my meals will over throw the hard work I would go through. But, I say to myself would I really want to work with food in a kitchen all my life?
When becoming a makeup artist I would be dealing with different cosmetics for the skin. I would also be spending most of my time in different makeup stores. Learning makeup pallet colors and brands in the classes. This type of career also would require traveling to different cosmetic factory’s that mix minerals to make new products. But, I am mostly into the satisfaction of making people happy with makeovers. Having customers love themselves even more after being pampered by a makeup artist feels like success. Also I would like to make it even higher to the top and do makeup on the models who are in the front of magazine covers.
Those are the gigs that bring up the opportunity on working with celebrities and become known to other clients. When I started college I couldn’t decide on a major because I couldn’t decide weather to got to culinary school or cosmetology school. Tuition being at the rate it is now I had found out that culinary school was extremely expensive 10,000 a semester. This was because of the food that would be used when being taught how to cook in the classes. Also cosmetology school was expensive with 8000 a semester. This is because of all the makeup and hair styling tools that would be used for teaching. Since a regular major would be the least expensive option at the moment I decided to change my major in to business management. This way I would be able to run my own business weather it be a restaurant or a beauty shop.
