1. Creativity

Makeup is an art. After all, there’s a reason they are called makeup artists. If you’re looking for a career that allows you to go where no one else in the industry has gone before, this might be the right fit. Makeup expands into special effects, bridal, editorial, and even avant garde looks. There is potential to create new movie monsters or make a woman feel special on her big day! With makeup, you can change the way someone looks and feels, and there’s nothing quite like seeing your artistic creation leave the front door with a smile on their face!

2. Drive

Are you passionate and ready to put in the time to become successful? You’ve got drive. It takes time, effort, and lots of trial and error to become a great makeup artist. Don’t be afraid to take things head on! Makeup artists are known to hustle to get what they want, especially if they are freelancing. Your drive can take you to careers in a variety of places, so start working on your dream now.

3. Good Communication Skills

Listening to clients will get you far in the makeup world. If you can’t create the look they’re dreaming of, what will you do? Talk to your clients, get to know them, and understand their goals. You may even find that you create lifelong friends.

Another large part of makeup artistry is your customer service. How quickly do you respond to questions and concerns? Do you make them feel comfortable in your chair? How likely are they to come back or recommend you to their friends? These skills are just as valuable as your technique.

4. Vision
