How do I join the makeup industry?
Hi, i'm currently a junior in high school and i have always love makeup, and i wanted to pursue my passion in becoming a makeup artist and i was wondering, after high school do i go to a college for makeup ( for example the EI makeup school) or do i go to a regular 4-6 years college??? I don't have a lot of money and i will be depending on financial aid, which mean i wont be able to attend the regular college and the EI makeup school after. I wanted a back up plan by attending the regular college and getting at least a bachelor degree( so if all plan fail, i can just become an English teacher) but i can't afford going to a regular college for 4 years and the next year go to a makeup school.
So my question is after high school what should i do???

I love your passion. You must follow your dream .
I've been in the beauty industry for 45 years and it's one of the most rewarding things I've ever done .
My advice to you is first , concentrate on your grades from junior high and high school .
Second , apply for every beauty college scholarship you can find. Santa Monica Junior College has a wonderful cosmetology course . Affordable , and you should be able to get through it in a short time .
Third , as soon as you were able to get a job , apply at Sephora , or ultra beauty .
Surround yourself with people in the industry.
You can never stop learning in this field.
There are so many different directions that you can go these days . Some people just specialize in brows, others, lips,etc.
you will soon develop a strength in your favorites.
Check out the Joe Blasco school of make up in Los Angeles . There are other excellent beauty supply companies that you might want to work for as well when you are receiving your training .
Take science classes in high school.
You can succeed at anything you put your mind to, heart in.
Best of luck!
Working at a beauty store like Ulta, Sephora or MAC can help educate you on the career field of makeup. A friend of mine worked for MAC and received wonderful training and pay while working there as well as incredible makeup skills. Having a passion for makeup is the very first step! I would recommend trying to work for one of these companies, I believe MAC educates and compensates their employees extremely well!
Reaching out to a school or program you would like to attend to study makeup can help you better plan out your education plan! Some programs can be completed in as little as 8months to 2years! I hope this was helpful! Definitely reach out to the programs and or jobs you are interested in pursuing to inquire further, it doesn’t hurt to ask!
