Jobs in a normal day

  • Make-up artists prepare make-up and hair for anyone appearing in front of a camera or a live audience in film, television, theatre, concerts, photographic shoots or fashion shows.

  • As a make-up artist, you could create anything from a straightforward natural look to period wigs and make-up, or special effects such as scars and prosthetics.

  • You could work alone, as an assistant to a senior colleague or as part of a larger hair and make-up design team. Depending on the job, your tasks might include:

  • researching and designing make-up and hairstyles to suit the production

  • working to detailed notes or a rough design brief

  • applying'corrective' make-up for a natural look

  • hair tidying and styling

  • fitting wigs, hairpieces and 'bald caps'

  • applying prosthetic make-up to completely change a performer's appearance

  • making notes and taking photographs to keep continuity

  • standing by on set to re-do make-up and hair

  • keeping work areas and equipment clean and tidy.

Other interesting aspects

Other Interesting Aspects

  • As well as taking a relevant make-up course, you should gain practical experience, build a portfolio of your work to show to employers, and develop a network of contacts in the industry.

  • You can get useful experience in various ways, such as:

  • backstage in amateur theatre

  • student film, theatre and photography projects

  • charity or student fashion shows

  • work experience with established make-up artists and photographers.

  • Once you have built up some experience and made some contacts, your first paid work in film or TV may be as a trainee or assistant to the make-up team. You might also find casual work as a 'daily', doing the make-up and hair for extras in crowd scenes
