This is a very challenging time for so many people and so many small businesses. We love supporting local and wanted to do our part in showcasing some fantastic small businesses.
This week we are speaking with Brianne Marble, owner of Beauty Uncovered. She is a freelance mobile beauty and bridal makeup artist, specializing in uncovering your natural beauty. Brianne has always had a passion for makeup and skincare. She specializes in bridal makeup and beauty/event makeup applications. Being based in the Fraser Valley gives her the opportunity to cater to clients in the Lower Mainland, Greater Vancouver area and beyond! You can find her on Instagram, Facebook and on their website.
What made you choose this type of business?
What is your favourite small business (aside from your own)?
Independently owned restaurants & eateries (not big chains). I looooooove food and love supporting small businesses.
If you had one piece of advice to someone just starting out, what would it be?
Create your budget and cut it in half and work up to what you need without going into crazy debt.
If applicable, has your business been negatively affected by COVID19? If so how have you coped?
My business had to completely shut down because of COVID. I had spring and summer brides that had to cancel their weddings and reschedule in 2021, I couldn’t do prom this year. We can technically start again now, but I have to completely restructure the way I conduct appointments, and I have to get a new kit/carrying case that isn’t fabric. There are definitely added expenses to be COVID-safe. I did end up getting a job in the midst of COVID, as a Beauty Advisor at London Drugs. They are really accommodating with my schedule, and will work around my business once I start doing weddings again.
What are your long term business goals?
To further my growth as a business in the wedding industry, add hair services, and personal lessons/classes.
What is your funniest/weirdest/most memorable experience with a customer or client?
Thank you to Brianne Marble for participating in this week’s Small Business Sunday.
