Makeup artist Jaleesa Jaikaran talks about her career in beauty and fashion

What is the biggest lesson you have learned in your career?

Believe in yourself and follow your own journey. Your path doesn’t have to look or be like anyone else or the people that came before you. Do you and all will fall into place.

Describe how you set goals and evaluate your success.

I write my goals down every year, I am a huge fan of writing things down and making them happen. I evaluate my success by not only how many goals I’ve checked off, but how happy and healthy I am. I’ve been way more cognizant of my self-care, so acupuncture and yoga are now a regular habit of mine.

What advice would you give someone who wants to follow in your footsteps career-wise?

Say thank you! It’s the one thing that has opened doors for me that have absolutely changed my life. Go out of your way to show appreciation to those who’ve given [to] you or shared opportunities. I don’t take those things lightly and it’s the reason I have my amazing agent today. I also share tons of career advice via my podcast, “The Life of a Makeup Artist.”
