***Resume in Gallery section***
My name is Gatlin Shirk and I'm a freelance Makeup-Artist. Career aspirations have always been a driving force in my life so having a strong work ethic was the only option. I noticed this at a young age when I realized that my dreams were outside of my zip code. Once I graduated high school, I moved 2 hours away to Annapolis, Maryland to work for MAC Cosmetics in Nordstrom. After being there for a year and excelling in my productivity, I was promoted to Tom Ford Beauty at the east coast flagship location in Tysons Corner, Virginia. This opened up several opportunities, from working with an international clientele to traveling around the US. After 5 months of being there, I was awarded "Nordstrom Allstar", an award given out twice a year for outstanding customer service & productivity. One of my biggest take-away's from this position was learning how to utilize and maintain a high volume clientele. Being that Tom Ford Beauty is a fragrance based brand, I missed the creative process of makeup. Following my heart, I left my job and moved to Baltimore, Maryland. There I began working for MAC Cosmetics and Golden West Cafe. Golden West was just some other cafe until I brewed my very first espresso drink. Little did I know that espresso could smell/taste so decadent. The aroma that left those beans changed how I would view coffee forever. Now I'm continuing my journey to New York City to explore my two leading passions, makeup and coffee.
