Hope all of you are doing great!

So, I´m a portuguese Make Up Artist and I just moved to London.
I was wondering if you have any tips for me to start again my career.

For example: agencies that I can contact; where I can get discount cards; famous Make Up Artist that I can contact to be an assistant, etc,...

Any help will be great!

Thank you so much in advance and hope you all have the best luck in this world!
