How do You Get Paid as a Makeup Artist?

Season 1, Ep. 13

Want to cross over from doing makeup for free as a hobby to doing makeup professionally as a career?

With over 20 years of combined experience working as a makeup artist, esthetician, filmmaker and business owner, I feel I have valuable experience to share, and I'm always excited to learn more. I've spent the majority of my adult life learning lessons that I'll be sharing with you, like this one, in my podcasts. I'm sharing what I wish someone had shared with me along the way. So let's learn and share together, what do you say?

In this next podcast I'll be discussing a question I get a lot: How do I get paid as a makeup artist? The answer is as complex as it is simple. There are no shortcuts in life and becoming a professional makeup artist is no different. There's no shortage of competition and celebrity makeup artists are around every corner, especially if you live in NY or LA. So how do you stand out? And how do you find jobs if you don't live in these types of cities? How do you position yourself to actually get paid for the experience you bring to the table as a professional makeup artist??

Well, grab some tea and let's get started...:)
