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!
How to Become a High Fashion Makeup Artist
You’ll want to have a credible certification in makeup artistry at the very least in order to work in the fashion industry. Additional certifications in specialized makeup fields will be your friend here, too!
Build your portfolio
In order to be taken seriously in the high fashion industry, you’ll need a professionally crafted portfolio filled with inspiring and artistic photographs of your most creative work. Start thinking about your portfolio early on in your career!
Get your foot in the door
You’ll start off in the high fashion industry probably as an assistant or supporting makeup artist for a few projects until you’ve proven that you’re a reliable and skillful professional.
Start getting clients!
