What to Expect in Makeup Artist Training

When you begin your training, you may start by studying color theory. Your instructors may show you how to choose color palettes based on the season, trends, and a client’s coloring. A strong grasp of color allows you to change your skills with new styles and trends.

As you develop your understanding of color and tools, you should spend a lot of time practicing your skills. From peers and mannequin heads to real clients, it’s crucial for you to get lots of experience with makeup.

Salary and Career Outlook for Tennessee Makeup Artists

The work setting you choose may affect how much money you can earn as a makeup artist. As a freelance makeup artist, you may set your own rates and schedule. If you work for a salon or beauty store, you may earn a base salary plus tips or commissions. In Tennessee, the average salary for a cosmetology specialist is $23,600 per year (O*Net, 2014).

Job openings in the cosmetology field are growing rapidly in Tennessee, outstripping the national growth rate. By the year 2022, O*Net hopes to see a 19% jump in cosmetology jobs in Tennessee.

Working as a Makeup Artist in Tennessee

Your skills as a makeup artist may take you into many different situations. Those who aren’t good at makeup may come to you to learn how to do a simple everyday cosmetics look. Others may want you to do their makeup for special occasions, like weddings or dances. You may have your own studio or makeup chair, or you may travel to clients’ locations for appointments.

Being able to take criticism and adapt your work accordingly is an essential skill in makeup artistry. Clients won’t always like what you’ve done, and you must be able to wipe off and start fresh without taking it personally.

Make your love of makeup a career. Take the first step by reaching out to makeup artist training programs in Tennessee.
