Attention Makeup Lovers: Hollywood is in need of more Special Effects Makeup Artists for upcoming movie and television productions!
Makeup artists are everywhere. You can find them in salons, spas, cosmetic shops, beauty clinics, on cruises, in retirement communities, photography studios, fashion shows, festivals, conventions and more.
However, Special Effects makeup artists are a harder to come by. They are mainly only found in theatre productions, movies and sometimes on television shows. This may be a specialized area, but it is in need of talented artists who live, eat, and breathe creativity. With so many advancements in CGI, entertainment is pretty much free to explore all avenues of fantasy, sci-fi or the time before man. Surroundings and characters in movies or on television have few limitations, with the exception of professional special effects makeup artists. It takes dedication to creative thought, process and implementation to see your creation on the big screen.
If you dream monsters, zombies, aliens, unicorns, and uniqueness… then you are already on your way to making them come to life. Don’t think that it’s going to be a slide in the water park, because it won’t be. You will have to dedicate yourself to passion, production, and positivity. There will be research, practice, experiments, revisions, catastrophes, ups, downs, all-arounds, more practice, and finally – perfection.
So, if you have the calling to become a professional special effects makeup artist, then you have the chance to make a name for yourself in Hollywood. Don’t become discouraged, and don’t give up after the first obstacle. Everyone who is successful has failed in the past, and many times, before success was achieved. There is work involved, but if you truly love what you do and know who you are, then you won’t ever work another day in your life. True Story.
