The role of a makeup artist
A makeup artist is a specialist in cosmetics, who uses artistic skill and makeup products to enhance someone’s natural features or to change how they look. Makeup artists are often employed to do makeup for weddings and other special events, and for modelling shoots, theatre productions, film and TV shows. Makeup artists who work on films and other productions may use special makeup techniques to radically change an actor’s appearance, for example to make them look much older than they are, or to make them look like they’ve been in a fight. Although you may be able to find an employed role in the industry, it’s common to work on a self-employed basis as a freelance makeup artist.
