Actors and actresses don’t magically look amazing when they step in front of the camera. Shocking, right? There are makeup artists on set to ensure that each actor or actress is looking flawless on set. Whether you are dreaming of working on huge productions with large casts or working on a small project with a few people, the film and TV industry may be for you!

Although working in theater is similar to working in film and TV, there is a certain spark to it that film and TV lack. Theater is all about the here and now, there are no retakes if there is a makeup malfunction and no 5-second countdown before you go live. If you’re quick on your feet and enjoy a good rush, you should consider checking out your local theaters!

Fashion Industry

Runways, photoshoots, behind the scenes; the fashion industry offers many open doors. The fast paced industry provides an environment that is welcoming to creativity and individuality. With the fashion industry being a place where growth is unstoppable, tradition is something that you won’t find often. If you are a trendsetter, the fashion industry might be your calling.

The hustle and bustle isn’t for everyone, though. Some people prefer working a 9-5 but still enjoy doing what they love. If you are one of those people, you should consider working in a retail store as a makeup artist. You can seek out makeup artistry jobs at makeup counters and makeup retailers, like Sephora.
