Cosmetics artists apply makeup to make dramatic looks for many special occasions. As a freelance makeup artist, you’d work off-set, as an independent contractor. The work could take you from behind the scenes dressing rooms to major destination weddings. If you have a flair for art, creativity and love to work with makeup, getting a freelance job working as a makeup artist can be lucrative.
The perks of this career are varied. For many makeup artistry jobs, you get to practice your skills in front of the mirror. For example, at a bridal makeup artist job, you’ll have to apply many makeup products to the bride’s face while she is being photographed. If you’re chosen correctly, the photographer will capture the image with some lovely makeup artistry.
