Are the Titles Make- Up Artist, Wardrobe Stylist, or Model being used too loosely?

Since the creation of Instagram people have been overly adding titles and occupations listed in their bio. More than half the people who follow me or who I follow are either bloggers, wardrobe stylist, models, hair company’s, make-up artist, club promoters, or boutique owners.

My reason for this discussion was that I was on one of my favorite blog sites fashionbombdaily.com, and I was reading some of the comments of the Bombshell of the Day post. They were just really giving this young lady a hard time for calling herself a stylist. That’s not the first time I’ve seen some one being ridiculed for being a wardrobe stylist.  

Are there credentials that one should have before given that title?  Should they be published in a couple of magazines? Have a resume on hand?

I’m not going to touch too much on Insta- Models (models only on Instagram) You can leave your opinion about them in the comment section below! Lol

 Make-Up Artist has been the most pop-up occupation on social media. Don’t get me wrong many are good, than there are others that I believe are doing it just because everyone else is.

This is probably going to rub some people the wrong way but this is just a discussion and I want to know other people’s opinion.  Do any of you consider Mary Kay and AVON consultants make-up artist?

What about faking it until you make it? Lol. My boyfriend had a good point about adding “aspiring” to the title until you get your big break to be able to wear that title.

Social media is a perfect asset to building any brand, but if you are looking into a quick way to become known, then you’re not going to last very long. My advice is just to be passionate about your craft and anything worth having is worth working hard for.
