Welcome to Makeup Artist Essentials!

If you’d like to become a makeup artist—or simply learn more about cosmetics and how to use them—you’re in the right place!

You’ll find a few of our posts below—we’ve got information on how to start a career as a makeup artist, a directory of makeup schools in every state, and interviews with practicing artists who do makeup for a living. We’ve also got plenty of guides and product reviews designed to help you select cosmetics and teach you the “best practices” on how to use them. There’s a lot here, so poke around and see what helps you.

And, if you have any questions, just over to our “Contact” page and drop us a line. We’d love to hear from you! Thank you for visiting, and happy makeup!
