Q&A with Sadikshya Subedi, a frelancer MUA
"Sadikshya Subedi is an Australian based MUA who freelances for herself."
Sadikshya Subedi is a makeup enthusiast who's been freelancing as a makeup artist in Sydney, Australia. She's a self-taugh MUA who also provides classes on makeup. We recently had an interview with her about her journey as a makeup artist. Let's get to know more about such an amazing talent.
Can you give a brief introduction about yourself?
My name is Sadikshya Subedi. I am a full time student currently at Sydney, Australia. I am makeup enthusiast who does makeup on my free time.
What made you decide that you wanted to start a career in glamour? Why and how were you interested in make up?
So, I’ve always been interested in makeup, since I was 16. As a normal school girl, I would just look up to people wearing makeup and be fascinated by it so, I always liked makeup. I watched a lot of YouTube videos and eventually started practicing on my face.
Are you self-taught or did you take some makeup classes?
I am a self-taught makeup artist; I’ve watched a lot of YouTube videos, clips to get the makeup skills. I once signed up for a makeup class but I didn’t go there as I was uncertified.
Can you share your journey in brief?
I had been doing makeup on my face and then I had eczema last year then I stopped doing makeup on my face. Since I was really passionate about makeup, I didn’t want to stop doing makeup though. Then I started taking in clients and that’s how I’m freelancing right now.
Have you ever faced criticisms? If yes, how do you deal with it?
I had the support of my friends and family sharing my work. At the beginning I didn’t have any criticisms and I still don’t have any, but I expect them in future if I ever make it to explore pages.
If I get sad by anything on internet then, I just put my phone away and remember that’s not real life and people show what they want to show, that’s how I deal with it.
Being in Nepal in the beginning and continuing it (makeup) in Australia, did you find any differences due to change in the country?
Like I mentioned before I am a full time student. I had a rough time. It took me about half a year to be a bit stable on my makeup journey. I work and study and still make enough time to pursue my passion.
Any suggestions for the beginners who are interested in being a makeup artist?
For beginners who are interested in makeup understand the face of a person and how a product works. You cannot just copy paste what you saw on YouTube because the canvas is different- the face is different. My suggestion would be practice, check what goes wrong, and understand the facial features as all people are unique and different style suits different person.
Lastly, can you share your basic skin care routine with us?
I don’t have a long skin care routine. I have a dry skin and it is eczema prone and sensitive; so, I really cannot apply a lot of skin care products. I am using pharmaceutical product as prescribed by the doctor.
