How to Become a Makeup Artist

There is always more than one way to get to a destination. One path may take you through some bumpy streets in a bad neighborhood, so make sure you have plenty of gas.

Other paths will take you out of your comfort zone and have a few tolls to pay. 

No matter what path you take, make sure that the destination is worth it to you before you start your journey. 

Go To Makeup School

Make sure to go to a makeup school that offers photography as apart of their package or as an add on service. One of the biggest things that you will need as a makeup artist are pictures of your work.

Expand your Horizons

As a makeup artist, it's common for you to attract the same type of clients that you yourself look like. Nevertheless, as you become more popular as an trained makeup artist you will start getting referrals to women from all walks of life.

Make sure that you take the time to look and play in makeup with a various amount of differnt undertones. Make sure that you have the right color foundation for your client before the date in question.

Put Your Tiara Down

More then ever before Youtube beauty enthusiasts and TV/Film makeup artists are gettting famous. This allows them to create a diva persona that many beginning makeup artists are adopting. They are doing this without the skill, experience and connections needed to pull that off. It's crucial to understand that this is a service industry, you are not the most important person in the room, your client is!


  1. Always be prompt.

  2. Be a joy to be around.

  3. Never spill the tea.

  4. Be confident, without being cocky.
