Shaina Eve – Simply The Best – Style Compass Media
Shaina Eve, is simply the best! She resides in New York, as a Lead Makeup Artist. We worked for a clothing store in Manhatten. She was young and sassy, but I saw her artistic potential. I knew she couldn’t grow within the company we were working for.
One day I pulled her aside and told her quit her job before I gave my notice to leave, so I could give her a high recommendation wherever she chose to work. I believed in her so much, I was willing to loan her money to enter cosmetology school. She opted to work for M.A.C. at Bloomingdales, in order to work, and train at the same time.
Long story short, she works for Mtv , and has celebrity clients, who travel to her, or have her flown to their destinations. There is no doubt in my mind she wouldn’t have gotten to this point in her life, without discipline, and sacrifice. This brings me to people who make un constructive comments, or needless opinions. While I saw Shaina Eve’s potential, I never gave her my opinion on, or about her work, unless it was asked. People value constructive criticism differently, if it’s requested by the person who carried out the work.
There are also different ways of going about sharing one’s opinion. Some choose to use social media as a platform to share views. There is a difference between sending a private inbox message, or outright posting comments about another person’s work on their public page. I don’t even give these narcissistic personality’s, any energy. Even if a project isn’t my particular taste, I still respect the creative effort, and time an artist put in.
In short, not everyone is a ‘hater’, some people are actually telling you the truth. You can judge their criticisms based on the manner it’s presented. I’m glad when I pulled Shaina aside, and advised her on her next career move, she listened. I knew Shaina Eve was amazing, and she believed it too…
