MUA Ashley Arciero talks about her brand Beauty Pop, traveling from Florida to Mass, her services, vision, and more!

Beyond The Lens – Ashley Arciero is an independent makeup artist from the state of Massachuetts that I truly respect and give so much credit to by writing up stories about the latest things in her journey to establish her brand and that has lead me to three publications about her already. The only thing I recently noticed was none of those publications included an interview between me and her.

As shocked as I was I immediately sent an invite to get the ball rolling on the interview and sent some questions shortly after she accepted the invite. I hope you enjoy reading the interview as much as I enjoyed doing it!

Internet Hollywood: Beauty Pop Lashes is such a great name to choose to represent your brand and you keep your page active for your followers. What is your vision for the future of your brand as an independent makeup artist?


Ashley: Right now Beauty Pop has helped me so much as a makeup artist. Social media is what is helping me. My vision is to keep building this brand as much as possible, to have the lashes on celebritys etc. I would also love to have my brand in a Sephora/ makeup stores.

Internet Hollywood: I remember you told me you were doing a new photo shoot. I can’t wait to see those pictures. One of my favorite photo shoots from you was the mermaid shoot you do. You looked like you were some animated disney character that came into our life. LOL. What kind of photo shoots would you like to do more of this year and what has changed about the way you deal with photo shoots now that your more comfortable with doing it?


Ashley: Thank you! Loved that shoot! My favorite thing about photoshoots and makeup is being colorful. I always love when we plan those types of shoots. I would love to do more beauty shots to build my makeup artist portfolio and also my own as well. Other than being a makeup artist I love to model and be in photoshoots! I would also love to work with other photographers.

Internet Hollywood: In this world, I feel people struggle with finding their sense of identity and that kinda keeps them from making their very first steps to get started. How hard was it for you to take those first steps and what did you have to change about yourself to change the world around you and stay focused?


_


Ashley: It was hard for me. I am a full time dental assistant and makeup was always my passion. I had to choose what to do. I didn’t want to leave my full time job so I found a way to go to school for makeup as well as keep my job. So that was hard for me to decide on what to do. I love makeup so much so I knew it was the right thing to do. It is my passion so I had to go for it. In order for me to stay focused I stayed super motivated because I love what I do 🙂 Love making people feel beautiful and creating art.
