What is an In-House Brand Makeup Artist?
Working as a makeup artist for a large makeup brand like MAC or Sephora, you’ll be on the front lines helping customers of those brands choose the right products for their needs.
You’ll give customers makeovers while explaining your techniques and chosen products so they’re able to recreate your work on their own. As an in-house makeup artist, you’ll have to be versed in more than makeup artistry. You’ll also have to have a knack for sales. For the right person, this is an amazing opportunity for a lifelong career!
How to Become an In-House Brand Makeup Artist
Brands will be wary of hiring anyone who doesn’t have a basic education in makeup artistry. While they’ll educate you themselves when it comes to their products, they’ll want to know you have a fundamental understanding of techniques, safety, hygiene, and more. A certification from a reputable makeup school is a great place to start!
Build Your Skills
A makeup brand wants to hire experienced makeup artists. You’ll find it easier to get hired if you can demonstrate experience doing makeup on other people. Build a small portfolio of simple daytime and evening looks, along with some glamour looks. These can all be done on friends and family!
Apply & Interview
You’ll want to keep an eye out on local job boards, websites, and on the brand websites in particular for posted jobs. You’ll want to craft a good resume and cover letter, and follow these important tips for nailing the interview!
