There are two main types of makeup artists: 1). cosmetic or fashion artist, and 2). theatrical and film artist. Each artist type has a different job description, the main functions and techniques are the same, however. In the simplest form, a markup artist is someone who uses cosmetic techniques and processes to create beauty and enhance a person’s appearance. The cosmetic or fashion artist range from the store clerk at the makeup counter to the artist preparing models for photo shoots or recordings.
Fashion artists also work with designers to create a certain look wanted by the client. Theatrical and film makeup artists, however, create imaginative characters and special effects for film, tv, photography, and theater. Both categories require a certain flair for creativity and imagination.
