Once you have graduated from an esthetician school, the possibilities seem endless.  Where will you work and what will your career choice be?  One option is to work as a make-up artist in a department store at a make-up counter.


Working in a department store as a make-up artist is a great career choice if you love doing people’s make-up, deciding what colors work best for them and selling product.  People who want to buy new make-up or experiment with a new look will often go into one of the make-up counters in a department store and have the make-up artist there do a free trail.  The make-up artist must be skilled enough in his/her craft and be able to determine the perfect color palate for the look the client desires.  Once the look is achieved, the make-up artist must be able to make recommendations as to what products the client should buy and explain how to use them.  This type of make-up artist must also be a good sale person.  Getting the clients to buy as many products as possible is an important part of their job.
