Becoming a Commercial Makeup Artist

The cosmetics industry brings in billions of dollars a year. In fact, one study noted that globally the industry will reach $863 billion by 2024.

What is a Commercial Makeup Artist?

In a broad description, commercial makeup beautifies someone’s appearance. Knowing the techniques for applying makeup for this purpose takes skill. For example, aging an actor over several decades takes special, precise makeup application skills.

Thus, a commercial makeup artist can be anyone who uses commercial makeup on people, mainly faces.

What Jobs are Available to Commercial Makeup Artists?

The most popular of these commercial makeup artists are those that do makeup and special effects for the entertainment industry. From Hollywood to Broadway and countless other venues in between, commercial makeup is the foundation of the stage and film industry.

Commercial makeup artists can even be special effects experts because they can create beautiful, glamourous looks or transform faces into hideous, scary looking characters. For example, some makeup artists work with popular zombie-based TV shows to create realistic-looking walking dead people. Then there is theater makeup, a skill of its own.

As a commercial makeup artist, you’ll be able to work in fashion and costume designing.
