Make-Up Artist Training

What Is A Make-Up Artist?

A make-up artist is a person who applies cosmetics, usually for people working in theatre, television, film, fashion, or the modelling industry. A professional make-up artist usually has a make-up or beauty therapy qualification.

What Would My Job Description Be As A Professional Make-Up Artist?

As a make-up artist, your job description may include:

  • Interpreting the make-up requirements of customers and clients
  • Using make-up to contour, colour, and beautify appearances
  • Using make-up, together with your understanding of the anatomy (especially the facial structure) to create particular looks or special effects
  • Working to tight deadlines

These are only a few examples of the tasks that a make-up artist may be required to perform. Your exact duties and responsibilities will depend on the nature of your employer, the industry in which you work, and the type of clients that you work with.
