The simple answer to this is “yes”!
The make-up industry is one of the most lucrative businesses in the world. It is an ever growing and ever changing area.
The truth is that it’s tough starting out and breaking in to this career. You have to prove yourself and take a lot of knock backs when starting out. You will need to establish a good reputation and that takes time, patience and hard work.
The most sought qualities in a good make-up artist are personality, reliability, punctuality, passion, loyalty, confidentiality, hard work, patience, easy going, friendly (with a diverse range of people), enthusiasm and also last but not least skill. Though practice makes perfect!
If you want to succeed bad enough, then you will! You’ve just got to ask yourself how bad you want it!
