Hiring a Makeup Artist

A makeup artist uses cosmetic techniques and processes to enhance the beauty and physical attributes of the clients based on their preferences. These experts use their artistic ability to change the appearance of individuals and make them look their best. They also have an understanding of how makeup works in relation to lighting and photography. Professionals may work as freelancers or may get employed by others. These artists can work in a number of settings, such as makeup demonstration counters or trade shows, for weddings and special events, theatrical makeup for stage productions, high-fashion makeup for runway models, and movie special-effects makeup design. The compensation package depends on the work setting, with the average median salary being $42,000 annually. For experts who work as special-effect makeup artists, the mean pay is much higher at $72,000 per year. Workers in this field may expand their client base and specialization continually, creating career advancement opportunities. 

What to expect from the role

Generally, responsibilities involve using cosmetic products to enhance the client's appearance. Experienced artists create characters and special effects for the entertainment industry with their advanced makeup design skills. The duties, in this case, vary to a substantial extent, although the core duties remain the same. Makeup artists primarily work with clients and adapt to their specific needs. Whether working in the traditional makeup field or the field of arts, the job begins with client consultation. They perform makeup demonstrations, provide product suggestions, advise on the cosmetic application process, and do skincare consultations. Depending on the job requirements, make artists are often required to carry their own makeup-tools for the application process. They also must ensure the safety of the clients, maintaining the hygiene of the tools and makeup space. Some employers want them to sell makeup products as a part of the service offerings as well as provide information and advice on cosmetic application. Makeup artists are also required to take classes periodically to hone their skills. They must learn about new products, gain an understanding of new techniques, and explore new skills.

Key requirements for job success

Those looking to make a career as makeup artists often attend cosmetology schools to get a foothold in the industry. Although not mandatory, most employers prefer candidates with a license or degree in the field of makeup. The required years of experience depend on the job role and industry. For artists working at a makeup counter, salon, or store, having experience is not essential as candidates are usually provided with on-the-job training. However, prior experience becomes an essential factor when hiring for the role of a makeup artist in theatre, television, movies, or fashion. Depending on the makeup artists' scope of job role, these professionals are often required to travel regularly to different locations. It is important to understand the latest makeup application techniques. Apart from this, the general qualities that employers seek while hiring a makeup artist include creative skills, being excellent at customer service, excelling in time management, and knowledge of art and design.
