Dear Ms. Hicks,
I’m writing to express my interest in the position your company posted for a MAC makeup artist. I believe I am the perfect candidate for this position, and I would love an opportunity to prove it to you.
I am a professional makeup artist, with over 4 years of experience working in a local spa that caters to a high class clientele. I can provide extensive references from satisfied clients. In addition to making my clients look great, this position also offered me plenty of experience in customer service skills, which I know will be of value in working with you.
Although I have completed extensive classes at a local beauty school, I am always willing to learn new techniques as they become available. I have an excellent eye for color, and I firmly believe in bringing out a clients natural beauty through the careful application of complementary makeup. I have spent many hours volunteering at a local hospital, helping women going through cancer treatments feel beautiful again.
I am especially interested in working for your company because throughout my career, I’ve found that MAC products are the best and most versatile makeup available. It would be an honor to work exclusively with your brand.
Thank you for taking the time to consider me for this position. I look forward to the opportunity to further discuss this opening and the talent I can bring your company. I have included my portfolio for you to peruse at your leisure. I’d love to show you what I can do in person!
