Behind the Scenes: A Day in the Life of a Makeup Artist




Being a makeup artist might look like all glitz and glam, but let's get real – there's more to it than just painting faces! Sure, we get to sprinkle magic and make people feel fabulous, but behind the scenes, there's a whole lot of hustle and a dash of chaos. From early morning calls to juggling brushes and blending like a boss, join me for a peek into the not-so-glamorous yet fun life of a makeup artist!


Being a makeup artist might look like all glitz and glam, but let's get real – there's more to it than just painting faces! Sure, we get to sprinkle some magic and make people feel fabulous, but behind the scenes, there's a whole lot of hustle and a dash of chaos. Here's what a typical day looks like:



  • Lugging Gear: From chairs to lights, backpacks to suitcases, we're basically professional pack mules. Being a traveling makeup artists means carrying everything from your house to your car, from the car to the hotel, from the hotel to the car, and from the car to your house again and again. And yes, we get tired just thinking about it too.

  • Early Riser Life: Rise and shine at 3am! Because looking fabulous knows no sleep schedule. When you have a bridal party of 7 girls that need hair and makeup, ready by 10:00am (each service taking about an hour) you need to start at 5:00am ensuring everyone is camera ready!

  • Endless Hours: Standing on our feet for 10+ hours straight? Yep, it's a workout. Even though waving a brush on someone's face might seem like an easy job, standing in one place for hours in a row kills our back and our feet, but seeing everyone beautiful and ready in the end makes it all worth it.

  • Jack of All Trades: Not just makeup artists, but also content creators, photographers, entertainers, and educators – we wear many hats! Doing makeup is the main gig, but in order to function in the world we live in today and keep up with trends we have to always be creating! Going to a wedding, you not only think about the makeup you're going to be doing but the content youre going to share from it!


So, while our job might not always be glamorous, it's definitely an adventure every single day. No day is the same and you meet the funniest people that sometimes feel like your besties.
