Embrace your creativity!

Begin your career as a make-up artist

 

Moisturise, prime, foundation, conceal, highlight, contour…pose, smile, selfie!

 

You know the steps, and you’ve done them a thousand times to master your look. But have you ever thought about turning your passion for make-up into a career?

 

A career as a make-up artist is exciting, creative, and fun, and there are so many opportunities. Here are a few reasons why you should consider studying Make-Up and starting a career in this industry.

 

1. Endless opportunities

 

One of the best things about make-up artistry is that you can work anywhere in the world. Make-up artists are needed everywhere and in different areas. If you aspire to work on movie and production sets, or whether you’d like to work on brides on their wedding day, there’s so much opportunity to utilise your skills.

 

2. It’s a growing industry

 

The beauty industry is always growing, and today with both men and women wanting to look their best, there will always be a constant demand for make-up artists. As a qualified make-up artist, you will never have to worry about finding work. Plus of course, there is the option of starting your own business.

 

3. Flexibility and growth

 

As a make-up artist, you will rarely have a routine 9-5 working life, and often you can choose your own working hours. This field also gives so much opportunity to continually learn and grow your skills. Make-up looks change continually, keeping you on your toes. As a make-up artist, you’ll never get bored, and as your skills develop, so will your reputation, meaning you’ll be able to charge more for your work!

 

4. Being creative

 

Possibly the best thing about being a make-up artist is the ability to let loose on your creativity! Each model is a fresh new canvas that allows you to express yourself as an artist. You can also choose what you want to specialise in – if weddings and special events are not your things, perhaps costume make-up for movies might be the creative outlet for you!

 

5. Earning potential

 

As a make-up artist, you have control over how much money you can make. The longer you’re working, the better your portfolio will be, and as people get to know you, you’ll build up your client list. The more you are in demand, the more money you can charge. Possibilities truly are endless!
