Makeup Artists


The Department of Labor predicts slow to average employment growth for workers in the entertainment and performance industries, depending on the job. Makeup artists will continue to find steady employment opportunities in the film and television industries. Digital TV has made it possible for hundreds of cable channels to be piped into our homes. The original programming needed to fill the schedules of these new channels results in jobs for makeup artists.

These makeup artists may be using computers more and more, as digital design becomes an important tool in creating film effects.
