JCI Fashion and Makeup grad Sayeh Sharelo

Can you tell us what you do in the makeup and fashion industry for work?
I work in the film industry for now and have some things on the side. Working in the film industry is a filler, I’m not looking to work for someone else for the rest of my life. As most people have seen, I do have my own YouTube channel. I do makeup, fashion, and lifestyle videos. I do sponsored videos on my channel, and that’s where I earn money. I also do a lot of stuff on Instagram. I am a brand promoter for clothing companies and makeup companies. Companies send me product (for free, and I get paid too) and I share it with my followers. I’m sure this is very familiar to most people, because it’s the new “thing” now. I’m also working on my own clothing line. I have a goal to reach before I can launch it.

As a Makeup, Lifestyle, and Fashion Influencer, what inspired you to get into these industries?
I knew I wanted to be in this industry since I was 10 years old. I would write about it in my journals at school and always talk about it, play dress up with my friends, it’s crazy to see that I’m still doing what I wanted to do since I was a little girl.

We love your YouTube channel themed around makeup, fashion, and lifestyle! Where do you find inspiration for your YouTube video topics?
Thank you! I find inspiration through pictures, songs, weather, everything. I’m an artist so it runs in my blood. I often keep my eye out and look at what’s trending, what’s popular, and what people are into these days.

Can you name 3 makeup products that you can’t live without.
My Estée Lauder double wear foundation, Anastasia dip brow, and Anastasia contour kit!

What’s one Spring Fashion piece every person should have in their closet?
A baby pink bodysuit!

Why did you choose to attend JCI’s Makeup and Fashion program?
I always heard advertisements about the school and a few of my friends attended there and told me great things!

Do you have a favourite moment(s) while attending JCI?
Not a specific moment, but i loved meeting the people that work & attended JCI, always a great environment when you enter the school. 

What advice do you have for JCI students and new graduates wanting to succeed in the makeup or fashion industry?

Never give up!!! Even though this industry has a ton of competition, you gotta push through it, prove to people why your DIFFERENT from others. That doesn’t necessarily mean your makeup skills, but your overall skills, personality, and everything. Find out exactly what you want to do and go get it. I was lucky enough to know exactly what I wanted to do before I took the courses. Of course taking courses like these, can change your path, but you ultimately have to make the decision. Instead of being jealous of someone, be happy for them, because God has something in stores for you too, and your time will come.

The FAB Makeup Program was designed for the artist who “loves the glamour but hates the gore.” This FAB-focused program provides training for all the fashion + beauty elements of makeup and prepares graduates to take the beauty biz by storm.
The objective of the Fashion Business and Creative Arts Diploma Program is to provide students with a comprehensive overview of the fashion industry, combining creative and business elements. This diverse approach gives our grads a distinct advantage both in knowledge and skill.
