How do I become a Makeup Artist?

To become a makeup artist in the fashion and wedding makeup industry, you first need to complete an accredited course Certificate 2 in Design and Apply Makeup (WBRFS202B). Makeup School Sydney is such as course.

After completing this course, you then need to create a portfolio of professional-looking pictures of your work.

Once you have about a dozen pictures in a portfolio, you can take it to a Makeup Agency. If they like your work, they will then promote you in the fashion industry. You can also set up your own website and present your work online.
