Why Become a Makeup Artist?

Makeup and brushes.

At Evergreen Beauty College, our makeup artistry program can teach you everything from the basics of makeup to airbrushing and advanced techniques for high fashion and weddings. Whether you’ve had a lifelong passion for makeup or recently developed an obsession, makeup artistry could be a rewarding choice for you.

Use Your Creativity

Did you always love art in school? Makeup artistry is just another form of artistic expression.

Think about all the products. Cream, powder, glitter, shimmer, gloss, it’s practically an artist’s palette! With your brushes and tools in hand, you can experiment with new trends and fresh formulations. Beauty changes constantly based on social media trends, celebrity looks, and new launches. This means there are infinite opportunities to flex your creative muscles and try new things.

Learn With MUD Makeup

Evergreen is proud to be a Make-up Designory (MUD) partner school. This in-demand beauty curriculum is designed to prepare you to work in the fast-paced beauty industry. It includes subjects like color theory, color analysis, product knowledge, facial shapes and features, and sanitation and safety. Working with this brand while you’re still in school is a great way to prepare for a future as a professional makeup artist.

Flexible Scheduling Options

If you’re looking for a career with flexible scheduling, makeup artistry is a great option. Makeup artists can work days, nights, and weekends depending on where you’re employed. Standard 9 to 5 schedule isn’t for you? You’re in luck. Many modern makeup artists work as freelancers, which often means you can set your own hours and work remotely.

Meet New People

You might not do makeup for celebrities, but you’ll still meet interesting new people every day! Working with a stream of new clients gives you the chance to socialize as well as build your clientele. With so many new faces, you’ll never be bored. Makeup artistry is also a great way to make an impact on someone’s day. Beautifully applied makeup can take your client’s confidence from zero to 10. There’s nothing more rewarding than the smile on someone’s face after a job well done.

Some of my technicians want to receive more training. Do you have additional certifications or specialty certifications for hairstylists, nail technicians, and aestheticians?
