In the overall health and beauty care market, makeup industry tends to dominate. With so many people pursuing a makeup artist career, you’ve got to wonder – why? Here are top fun reasons to become a makeup artist.
You will be your won boss and get to decide what job you want to take and when to take it. Also, flexible schedule makes it a fairly easy career to make a smooth transition over to from another career or salon, so you wouldn’t be left high and dry and without income when you start. You can decide on the number of hours, how late or early you are willing to work and how many days a week you are available. In most cases, your clients will have to adjust to your availability.
Many makeup artists get to travel for work at least once in their career in makeup artistry, and often their travel costs are reimbursed. Whether it is to a destination wedding in the Caribbean or a photoshoot in a different city, you might get to travel to places and cities you’ve always wanted to go, without spending a dollar to get there. If you love travel, that’s a huge perk! And if you don’t, remember, you are your own boss and you can always say no.
Being a makeup artist actually pays well. Plus, you’ll get unlimited opportunities in your career path. Many makeup artists become a go to for rich and famous, many specialize in bridal makeup, many sign contracts with photographers and agencies who will regularly book makeup artists.
You’ll get to play with shades, accents, texture and get as creative as the situation permits. From doing a Halloween makeup gig to using bright orange lip stick for a photo shoot, you will get to show your personality, improvise and create unique images.

No matter if you work with brides, theater actors, celebrities, or politicians – you’re bound to meet some amazing people! Do not underestimate the power of networking. New connection might lead to a new job, new friend or just a couple of hours of laughter and jokes.
