Make-up artists generally beautify the face of a model for a runway show, a bride for a wedding or an actor for a stage production or a film. The job requires a thorough understanding of face types, colour and make-up techniques. Although one can do a make-up course after school, it is better to finish college and then do a course. Once you finish the course, you should assist an experienced make-up artist and look for an internship. Keep an eye out for runway shows or small events to showcase your work. A make-up artist makes good money after building his/her reputation, but one has to keep the competition in mind. You should keep updating your skills by attending international seminars and sharpening techniques.
