What is Makeup for High Fashion?

The fashion industry goes hand in hand with makeup artistry. Every photo shoot, every fashion show, needs a lead makeup artist to bring a vision to life, and a team of makeup professionals to carry out that vision.

Working in the high fashion industry is an exciting opportunity for makeup artists who enjoy going beyond the traditional smokey eye and really using their skills to create bold makeup looks that complements the overall project’s vision.

There are a number of different jobs available in this industry. From makeup for editorial photo shoots to design for fashion shows or even the red carpet, you’ll never be bored!
