WHY A CAREER IN MAKE-UP?  


Make-up is the fastest growing industry in the world. Many multi-million dollar industries utilize make-up artists. Everywhere you look in every industry, a make-up artist was involved to some extent including; cosmetics, music, fashion, beauty, advertising and marketing, entertainment, medical, corporate, television, film, magazine and bridal.

Never underestimate the power of a make-up artist. Make-up artists are involved in applying make-up on every television presenter from the newsreader to documentaries, variety and talk shows. Make-up artists beautify your favorite soap star, singer, dancer, actor, actress and performer. Make-up artists have a hand in every conceivable film and television show. Make-up gets applied not only to the faces you see but also the hundreds of extras you often don’t see on a production resulting in massive teams of artists being on set at any one time. Make-up has even woven its way into the corporate sector where corporate clients employ make-up artists to work on advertising campaigns, product launches, company brochures, billboards, poster, calendars, catalogs, exhibitions and in-house staff and team shoots for their newsletters, websites and promotional materials.

Magazines and all print media supply our artists with an endless stream of work applying make-up on the fashion model in the editorial pages, as well as the couple appearing in an advert for a family car, to the model holding your favorite perfume and the person telling her life story in an in-depth article.

The music, TV and film industries shoot hundreds of new shows, movies and music videos daily. None of these can start production until a make-up artist has waved their magic brush.

Many make-up artists climb the industry ladder often becoming the senior artist for cosmetic brands, traveling the world promoting the brand rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous and teaching other artists their skills and techniques.

Private clients book make-up artists for an array of commissions including make-up for; Brides, matric farewells/proms, special occasions and functions, dress up parties and much more, the possibilities are endless.

Make-up is an essential part of the world we live in and will never go out of fashion.
