Ms. Helena Chang
I’m writing to you regarding the position of theatrical makeup artist, which I found on [Company Name]’s website and applied for through [Job Website].

From 2015 to 2016, I worked as a makeup artist at Silk Boutique Salon. I provided clients with unforgettable looks before personally meaningful events, including weddings, photoshoots, and award shows.
