“Progress is one step forward two steps back, and I’d rather take that one step forward than none at all”
We’re on Uncreative Radio with Jude Andam, a marine biologist turned makeup artist.
After earning her degree and working in the marine biology field, Jude continued to feel unsatisfied in her work and it wasn’t until she began working in the beauty industry that she found fulfillment. Her resume now includes clients like Tiger Woods, Sony, Amazon Video, and CNN.
On this Episode of Uncreative Radio, Josh and Jude speak on the hair and makeup industry in the entertainment world and the important role they play in “connecting both worlds of production and main acts”, as Jude puts it.
They also reflect on the massive divide in the country and how it directly contributes to the handle of Covid, denial of climate change, cancel culture, and whether or not advocating on social media is making enough of a difference.
Harkening back to 2020, Josh and Jude express the disconnect in society on important social issues including climate change. They agree that this is a pressing issue, some people are living to survive, and in that state only day-to-day actions matter. As a result, they have no mental capacity to take on more, they
“Work on what’s on their table first.”
Josh and Jude ask themselves; does social media even have a positive effect? Unfortunately, much of it is performative advocacy, Jude concludes that its effectiveness is not the reason she does it. She does it to voice her opinions and show what’s important to her. It’s then up to other people to decide whether they want to believe her genuineness.
Now, California is slowly starting to open back up, Jude is faced with a double-edged sword. On the one hand, she is excited to dust off her makeup kit and be on set. On the other hand, she now cannot control who she is in contact with and can only take steps to protect herself. Her only hope is that everyone else is willing to do the same.
You’ve got questions, and we’ve got answers. Tune in on Thursday, April 8th at 6 PM ET for Uncreative Radio with Jude Andam to hear what she’s been up to.
