Professional makeup artist Arber’s skills are so good that he’s turned his name into a globally recognized brand.
His social media following has grown to be absolutely phenomenal. Arber has 531k Instagram followers as of the time of writing.
His fans are excited to see the newest looks he has to share with everyone. Anyone interested in his services can easily reach him by phone, email, or social media.
Since the last time Bored Panda featured his looks, the beauty influencer’s following has grown by 800k people.
Arber revealed in an earlier interview with us that he has always wanted to be a makeup artist since he was a child.
However, he stated that his family was opposed to his ambitions. “A male in the beauty industry is considered taboo in our culture,” he explained.
“So, first, I got a master’s degree in economics, and then I followed my dream and started working as a makeup artist,” he explained, explaining that his path to his dreams has been a long one.
The makeup artist is still as enthusiastic about his work as he was before. He puts in an extraordinary amount of effort. Every year, he works with over a thousand brides.
“When I meet with a client, the first question I ask is what kind of occasion they’re getting their makeup done for,” Arber explained to Bored Panda about how he works with his clients.
“I also inquire if my clients have any specific requests. For example, if they want a natural or dramatic appearance,” he explained.
“Then I ask them to show me the dress they intend to wear. The style of the client’s desired look is revealed by the design of the dress and its details. Then I analyze their facial features,” the professional explained step by step.
Arber’s line of work, like that of many other makeup artists, had been impacted by the pandemic. They had fewer customers than usual during the lockdowns.
However, summer is typically their busiest season. He and his team can work with up to 60 clients per day, which is absolutely incredible.
Arber told Bored Panda that his team consisted of 25 people at the time. There are 15 makeup artists and 10 hair stylists among them. As a result, he is able to serve all of the clients who require his services.
The professional makeup artist has been working hard to share his talents with more people. “Some of my students work part-time and some work full-time,” he said, adding that he has trained a number of industry professionals. A true master is one who shares his or her knowledge with others.
The artist revealed that he has enough resources to work with 100 clients every day.
“We begin our workdays early in the morning and make certain that our schedule has no impact on the quality of services, meeting all of their needs,” he explained.
“A wedding is one of the most important events in a person’s life in the Balkans. However, due to the pandemic, many of them were postponed,” he explained to us earlier how the lockdowns had impacted the region’s wedding industry.
