sinziana iaru, caravana secretele machiajului

In Caravana Secretele machiajului am avut multe revelatii. Poate din acest motiv am si ales sa povestesc despre caravana incet, incet intr-o serie de mai multe articole, decat sa fac un rezumat intr-un singur articol. Pentru ca ce s-a intamplat acolo a fost complex, a fost cu lacrimi in ochi si noduri in gat, pentru ca de fapt despre asta e vorba intr-o comunitate, despre emotie. Iar la noi la caravana, s-a vorbit mult despre emotie si relatiile interumane.

Ma uitam la Sinziana cand isi tinea seminarul si vedeam dincolo de ea, vedeam cum facultatea de psihologie iesea incet, incet la iveala si acapara make-up artistul. Si uite asa ajungeam sa avem si pauze de 10-15 min de speech in care se discuta despre natura umana, despre cum avem nevoie sa credem in noi, cum degeaba invatam acum un truc de machiaj daca suntem pierduti de drumul nostru.

Mi-ar placea ca in loc de fractii complicate in clasa a 6 a, copiii nostri sa invete la scoala mai multa psihologie, sa invete sa se cunoasca pe ei si pe cei din jur ca mai apoi fiecare in meseria lui sa stie cum sa relationeze.

Daca am fi mai atenti la propriile noastre reactii, am stii cum sa gestionam si reactiile celor din jur. Am stii cum sa abordam o situatie de criza, un moment in care ne lasam dominati de dezamagire, un moment in care clienta de pe scaun e prea nervoasa sau prea emotionata sau prea suparata sau pur si simplu ea e fericita si noi nu suntem.

In fiecare makeup artist ar trebui sa existe un psiholog, ca sa stim sa ne gestionam emotiile, sa ne intelegem drumul si mai apoi drumul clientei. Sa stim ca vorba “clientul nostru stapanul nostru” nu este reala, dar ca datoram respect si intelegere omului care ni se aseaza pe scaun. Ca pe scaun ni se poate aseza o clienta vesnic nemultumita care ne poate distruge increderea in sine si mai apoi cariera. In fiecare dintre noi ar trebui sa existe un mic psiholog care sa ne invete ca unele cliente te ridica si altele te coboara, ca maine iti va fi greu, dar poimaine iti va fi bine si ca puterea de a reusi sta numai in noi si in iesirea din zona de confort.  

Nu zic sa va apucati de facultatea de psihologie, spun doar sa privim lucrurile mai profund si sa nu uitam ca suntem oameni care lucram cu oameni si avem nevoie sa ne cunoastem interiorul pentru a stii cum sa reactionam la exterior. Reveniti la fiinta umana si la putina psihologie pe care am invatat-o toti in scoala si veti vedea ca emotiile vor fi constructive si linistea interna va veni la pachet cu creativitatea.

Pe curand!

A voastra,

There should be a psychologist within every make-up artist


I had many revelations during the Secrets of Make-Up Caravan. Perhaps precisely for this reason, I chose to talk about the caravan slowly, in a series of several articles, rather than make a summary in a single article. Because what happened there was complex, it brought tears to our eyes and lumps in our throats, because this is in fact what a community is about, it’s about emotion. And in our caravan, we talked a lot about emotion and interpersonal relationships.


I was watching Sinziana hold her seminar and I could see beyond her, how the Psychology degree came out slowly and took over the make-up artist. And so we would end up having 10-15 min breaks for speeches about the human nature, about how we need to believe in ourselves, about how it’s useless to learn a make-up trick if we lose our way.


I’d love that, instead of complicated fractions in the 6th grade, our children learned more psychology in school, learned how to know themselves and the people around them, so that later on, each of them would know how to interact in their professions.


If we paid more attention to our own reactions, we’d know how to manage the reactions of those around us. We’d know how to approach a crisis situation, a moment where we let our disappointment take us over, a moment where the client in our chair is too angry or too nervous or too upset or she’s simply happy and we’re not.


There should be a psychologist in every make-up artist, so that we know how to manage our emotions, to understand our way and then the client’s way. To know that the saying “our client, our master” is not real, but that we owe respect and understanding to the person that sits in our chair. That in our chair may sit a client that is always dissatisfied, that can shatter our confidence and then our career. There should be a small psychologist in each of us, to teach us that some clients lift you up and others bring you down, that tomorrow will be hard but the day after tomorrow will be better, and that the power to succeed exists only in us and in getting out of our comfort zone.


I’m not saying you should attend a faculty of psychology, I’m only saying that we should take a deeper look at things and never forget that we are people working with other people and we need to know our inner selves in order to know how to react on the outside. Go back to the human being and the little psychology we all learned in school and you’ll see that emotions will be constructive and inner peace will come along with creativity.


See you soon!
