AVVAY Pro Highlight: Happy Payne
My husband, Adrian. He’s a photographer and I wanted to add to our business so I went to makeup school.
It’s easy to stay creative by pursuing different avenues. One day I’m working on a tv show, the next I’m doing a photo shoot, and the next I might be on a music video. I love having the freedom to mix it up.
I certainly have favorites that I use all the time, but honestly my absolute favorite thing is the travel kit that allows me to work straight out of it without unpacking anything. It keeps me really organized.
I’m always on the lookout for anything that allows me to do my job better.
Network! I wouldn’t be where I am today without doing that.
I’d love to do more tv! I started getting some jobs in that area in the last couple years and have had a great time.
