Make up artists use make up and cosmetics to enhance beauty, cover blemishes and disfigurements, or even create prosthetic masks and special effects. In the beauty industry your career as a make up artist will be focused on designing make up for weddings, special events, parties, glamour photography, and makeovers. But make up artists also work in the creative arts industries too.
If you’re interested in working in film, television and theatre you could be preparing actors, performers, and models for their roles — applying cosmetics to enhance their appearance under a range of stage lighting, or creating special effects (eg, fake bruising, vampire teeth, and weird noses). Even more exciting, you might be moulding prosthetic masks and other body parts to create stunning visual effects.
