Makeup artists are hired for weddings, theatre productions and more

Types of services a makeup artist provides

Wedding makeup

Many makeup artists are skilled at wedding makeup and will be called upon to do the makeup for the bride and her bridesmaids. They will ensure the makeup is in sync with the bride’s wedding gown and accessories.

Production and television makeup artists

These professionals specifically cater to the production and TV industries and are responsible for doing the actors’ makeup. They may also be in charge of handling the makeup for the entire cast of the production, in which case they may work with a team of assistants as well.

Salons

Makeup artists may also work at salons for various professional makeup applications for their clients. Some makeup artists are skilled at hair styling and can provide these services together.

While many salons and beauty centres have makeup artists in their team, most work as freelance professionals with their own client lists. Their services are widely used in theatrical productions, commercial shoots, movie productions, fashion events, stage plays, weddings and more.

How to choose a good makeup artist

Qualifications

While some artists don’t have any formal training and have built their careers on experience alone, it’s a good idea to hire someone who is qualified and has undergone formal training in the field.

Experience and reputation

Most makeup artists have an online presence and you can go to their website or social media pages to see what their experience level is like and look at who else has hired them. You should also check online reviews and testimonials.
