Hello and welcome to my series Becoming a Makeup Artist. In this series you will learn how is it to be a makeup artist, the ups and downs, how to become a makeup artist, what you need, if it’s really necessary to get certified, how to get a job, how to build your portfolio and kit and everything in between.
This is my story of becoming a makeup artist and I want to give you all the tips that I have learned over the years. The series will consist of 10 blogposts – one each Saturday. So I hope that you will enjoy it.
Being a makeup artist is something that I have always wanted to become. It has been on my bucket list since I was very young. In 2016 I got a job as a makeup artist and in 2017 I became a certified makeup artist. So yes, it is actually possible to get a job as a makeup artist without a certificate.
