How to become a Make-up Artist

mac-painterly.jpg

They are three types of make-up artists (MUA): 

  •   the one that is born with natural skills and is good at performing any aspect of the art of makeup (let’s call him “Gifted”)        
  •  the one that has some skills and has a passion for the art of makeup (let’s call him “Passionate”)       
  • the one that really does not have any skills but is more passionate about this art than Gifted or Passionate  (let’s call him “Ambitious”) 

Whether your name is Ambitious, Gifted or Passionate or just a combination of these three, you can be a successful makeup artist and gain knowledge in the world of beauty just by following a few guidelines.

Note: I do not portray myself as a “master”, but I can tell you that the following advice helped me a lot in my career… 

  1. PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE!!! Whether you have skills or not, practice as much as you can. Do makeup on your friends, sisters etc.
  2. Go to your local makeup counter and be that annoying customer that no MUA wants to have! That means ask questions; have them show you how to use products etc. But please purchase at least 1 item when you leave (and do not return it the following week ;) …)
  3. Read makeup books, magazines, blogs etc. Check my list under BOOKS
  4. Try to get a part time job even if it’s just on weekends. Sephora for example is a great place to work at if you are a beginner. Try also to apply at any makeup lines in the mall. If you are not successful, keep trying. If they ask you the key question: “Do you have any makeup experience?” Answer: YES you do and you are willing to take brushes now and prove it (make sure you practice home because some managers will take you on the word and have you do an application)
  5. If you know a MUA that freelances, offer to be her/his assistant at no cost. That’s the best mentoring you can get.
  6. If you feel like you want to go to school to actually learn more, try to find the best makeup schools in your area. I do not recommend these 2 days seminars as you will not learn as much as if you go to a MUA and just ask him/her questions.  If you need a list of good makeup schools, tell me what region you live in and I will tell you which one to look at.
  7. Last but not least, have the right tools and make sure you test and buy as much makeup as you can, that’s the best way to learn about colors…

 Tiff, let me know if you have more questions in regards to this…   

 

Les 3 types de maquilleurs

  • Celui qui est né avec un atout naturel et arrive à bien reproduire n’importe quel aspect de l’art du maquillage (appelons le « le doué »)
  • Celui qui a quelques aptitudes et a une passion pour l’art du maquillage (appelons le « le passionné)
  • Celui qui n’a pas vraiment des aptitudes mais est beaucoup passionné par cet art que le doué ou le passionné (appelons le « l’ambitieux »)

Si tu t’appelles l’Ambitieux, le doué, le passionné ou que ton nom est une combinaison de ces trois, tu peux être un maquilleur bien établi et acquérir un savoir sur le monde de la beauté en suivant simplement ces quelques directives.

Nota Bene : Je ne me considère pas  comme « une experte », mais je peux vous dire que les conseils suivants m’ont beaucoup aidé au cours de ma carrière…

  1. PRATIQUE, PRATIQUE ET PRATIQUE!!! Que tu aies des aptitudes ou non, il faut pratiquer autant que possible. Fais le maquillage de tes amis, sœurs, etc…

 

  1. Va au comptoir de maquillage le plus proche et sois ce client chiant qu’aucun maquilleur n’aimerait avoir ! En d’autres mots, pose des questions ; demande-leur de te montrer comment utiliser les produits etc. Mais s’il te plaît, achète au moins un article avant de partir (et ne le rends pas la semaine prochaine ;)….

 

  1. Lis des livres sur le maquillage, des magazines, des blogs etc. Jette un coup d’œil à ma liste sous la catégorie BOOKS

 

  1. Essaie d’obtenir un travail à mi-temps même si c’est juste les week-ends. Par exemple, Sephora est un endroit idéal pour travailler si tu es un débutant. Essaie aussi de faire une demande à n’importe quelles lignes de maquillage au centre commercial. Si tu n’as pas de succès, essaie toujours. Si on te demande la question-clé : « As-tu de l’expérience dans le maquillage ? » Réponds : OUI, j’en ai et que tu es même prêt à prendre des pinceaux sur le champ et le prouver (assures-toi de pratiquer à la maison car certains managers te croiront sur parole et te demanderont de faire une application.

 

 

  1. Si tu connais un maquilleur qui fait du freelance, offre tes services en tant que son assistant (e) gratuitement. C’est le meilleur mentoring que tu peux recevoir.

 

  1. Si tu as envie d’aller à l’école pour en apprendre plus, essaie de trouver les meilleurs écoles de maquillages dans la zone où tu vis. Je ne conseille pas ces séminaires de 2 jours où tu n’apprendras pas autant que si tu allais voir un maquilleur et juste lui poser des questions. Si tu as besoin d’une liste de bonnes écoles de maquillages, dis-moi la région où tu vis et je te dirigerai vers une école

 

  1. Et finalement, aie les bons outils et assures-toi de tester et d’acheter autant de maquillage que tu peux, car c’est la meilleure façon d’apprendre les couleurs….

 

Tiff, tiens moi au courant si tu as d’autres questions à ce sujet.

    Hey Eva,
    I totally agree with this post. I am licensed and at the stage in my artistry where I think I need a part-time job doing makeup so that I can keep my skill up. I also want to be completely comfortable applying makeup on others. We so need to talk offline. Any who great blog great posts as always
    See you Saturday !!

    I really love makeup and wanted to find a way to make money at it with out spending tons of money on some school. I found this DVD that teaches you everything you need to know about beauty makeup, since that is where most artist make most of their money. It’s really great, comes with a whole package of stuff and is sooo cheap. They even teach you about the business end of it.

    Hello Dee,

    I am not sure how far Glen Burnie is from Von Lee school of Makeup, but I can assure you that it is the best school in the MD/DC/VA area. Try also Chesapeake School of Esthetics in Arnold, MD. It can be closer to you…

    Hey! I am thinking about going to the Chesapeake school of Esthetics but Im moving a few weeks after I would become board certified, will that transfer to a different state?!? this may be a stupid question! lol..and also do I have to take another test to become board certified even after I complete the class?! help!!!

    Hello Catherine,

    Usually, when you are certified in one state, your certification is good for you to practice in that state if you work for certain makeup retailers. If you work for yourself, it should be ok if you go to another state. However, you may have to apply for one in the state you will live in if you are planning on opening a business etc. You should contact your local State board of Cosmetologists and find out the rules and regulations.
    Also, if you complete the class, you should be able to get your license through the school. You usually do not have to take a test (unless it’s a class test at the makeup school). Your makeup school is the one that usually applies for your license by certifying that you indeed took makeup classes and that you are qualified.

    Hey! Great article! Thanks for going through the trouble to write it. Aspiring makeup artists such as myself appreciate good advice from people who have been in the business and know what they’re talking about!

    I live in Sacramento, but I could definitely travel or take up schooling abroad. I would like to go to a school that will make a future employer say “WOW!” when they look at my resime, if you know what I mean. Do you have any advice for schools that are renown for the makeup/cosmetology industry that will really look impressive to future employers?

    Another thing, if I wanted to become an assistant to a MUA to learn a few things, how would I go about finding one and asking them? How can I find an experienced one who really knows a lot about what they’re talking about?

    Thank you very much!

    ::::Guidelines To Picking The Best Schools for Becoming A Professional Make-up Artist::::

    I really want to become a professional make up artist in Hollywood.

    i was thinking bout going to school for nursing, but then i realized i love doing make up and i can make money while doing it. so I want to go to beauty school to become a professional make-up artist. i want a school that can give me a good foundation. I have been constantly searching for the perfect beauty school. Trying to Making sure they are accredited and professional and one where i can get a cosmetology license . But when i look online i see thousand of schools availible with many different cirriculums but i wanna know which school provides their students with an impressive variety of skills. one that can teach me air-brushing and more… And a school that is well known and will look impressive on my resume. Or is there a series of College Courses you could recommend. Do you have any schools mind ? I just want something beyond the normal experience of a basic beauty school.

    I want to work with celebrities, models, photographers, etc… Or just exciting people who are willing to take the ordinary outside of the box and challenge my creativity. i also wanted to know is it a hard as the say it is to move up & is it a steady income that you can depend on and support a family with?

    so any information you have about the industry would really help!

    P.S. i live in Lakewood Ca, sorrounding areas hollywood,los angeles, orange county,& riverside. but wiling to drive 1 hour 1/2 max. ill travel the distance to get the right education! ;-)

    Thank You!

    I was in a similar situation when looking to become a makeup artist in NYC. I ended up training at Chic Studios NYC in Brooklyn but it’s only one stop from the City.

    I took an evening class so I could keep my “day job” and I REALLY found this to be the best path. As much as I thought I was “self taught” or “practiced on my friends” it really gave me a lot more comfortable confidence to go out there and pursue this as a career.

    The instructor Ruthie Weems was so amazing and talented, I cannot even begin to explain how she changed my life! And I kept practicing, through rotations with students as well as models brought in. They also went over the business of makeup, so I knew exactly how to start my career. I even get gigs through being an alumni!

    It was affordable, with makeup kit, under $3000. I highly recommend it!

    If anyone ever has any questions, please e-mail me! I was where you are!

    Good luck!!

    Thank for the wonderful tips! I would like to attend a MUA school. I was hoping that you could recommend one in or around Nashville, Tennessee. Thank you very much! Melissa

      Hello Melissa,

      I am not that familiar with Nashville, but I always recommend to try to have some experience working. It is always better and it helps you have more confidence in your skills.

      Hello Anna,

      I would suggest you try to get a job at a makeup counter if you already have some experience. This is the best way to learn and some makeup line will even send you to training classes. I first got certified by Lancome when I started doing makeup…

      Hello Dear,

      If you live in NY, you have plenty of choice as far as makeup school.You can check the Make-Up Designory (MUD). As far as taking online classes I will not recommend it as makeup can only be learned hands on application…not online…
      Good luck!
