Actor’s makeup

To become a makeup artist for film, attend a cosmetology school with accreditation for film makeup, complete an associate or bachelor’s degree in theater, earn certifications to develop your skills and gain hands-on experiences through internships or beauty-related jobs, like working at a retail makeup counter. A film makeup artist applies makeup to movie actors during filming, and they can play a vital role in helping the directors and writers tell a story on the screen. They may work closely with the production team and director, and their hours and schedules can vary significantly depending on the movie and shooting location.
