Do you want to start a lucrative career in makeup artistry?

WHAT JOBS ARE AVAILABLE IN MAKEUP ARTISTRY?
Our graduates find work in many areas of artistry. Some of out students freelance doing weddings and special events. Some own makeup businesses, or become national artists for major cosmetic companies. Some work with dermatologists and plastic surgeons. Others work with photographers, models, and designers doing print ads, catalogs, fashion magazines, music videos, and runway shows. Many artists work with celebrities and actors in the theater or work with musicians on tour or on music videos, or in film and television doing motion pictures, commercials, daytime television, sitcoms, reality shows, sports and news.

WHAT KIND OF MONEY CAN I MAKE AS A MAKEUP ARTIST?
The quality of your work and your commitment to excellence are two deciding factors; next is which industry you choose. The Cosmetic retail industry is the entry level for many makeup artists. it averages the lowest income at $12 - $26 per hour with or without sales commission. Bridal makeup can be $75 - $1000 depending on the size of the bridal party. Production work is paid by “day rate” which averages between $250 - $1500 per day for Print, Video, and Runway work and for Film between $400 - $850 per day, sometimes with a lot of overtime (time and ½ or double time).

DO YOU HELP GRADUATES WITH JOB PLACEMENT?
Many employers contact our Student Services Department when they need an artist or a team of artists for an event. During your enrollment at Gwynnis Mosby Makeup Academy, our staff will help you prepare your resume, make business & comp cards, and build your professional portfolio. Upon successful graduation, students are counseled concerning professional career pursuit and development. We encourage students to attend career workshops and continuously communicate with the school for further support and assistance with career management.

WHAT SHOULD I DO NEXT?
If you can, we encourage a visit to the school to meet with our staff and tour our facility. You will learn about the various careers in makeup artistry. We will answer your questions and concerns. You will have a chance to observe classes in session and speak with other students. It is highly recommended that you speak with an Admissions Advisor prior to submitting your registration to ensure that your educational desires meet your occupational goals.

HOW DO I GET ACCEPTED TO GWYNNIS MOSBY MAKEUP ACADEMY?
You must first apply for acceptance and be interviewed by a member of our Admissions team. There are qualities that we look for: a strong desire to become a professional make-up artist is needed, and willingness to work hard and adhere to high standards. You may be interviewed in person or by phone to assess your interests, goals and abilities.
