What is a makeup artist and what do they do?

A makeup artist, also commonly abbreviated as MUA, is a professional who specializes in makeup application. These individuals use a variety of cosmetic application techniques combined with their talent and craftsmanship to create art on the human body as a canvas. Makeup artists not only have the skills and expertise of makeup application, but they also have a thorough knowledge of cosmetic components and ingredients.

There are many occasions in which someone may hire a makeup artist, including special events such as weddings, proms, galas, birthdays, milestone celebrations, and other similar occasions. However, makeup artists aren’t just limited to glamour makeup—they also create looks for runway and editorial fashion, as well as for TV, film, and theater performances.

That being said, makeup artists typically have a wide range of skills that are suitable for different types of makeup techniques—and certain makeup artists may even specialize in a particular discipline, for example, special effects, high fashion, airbrushing, theatrical makeup, or prosthetics.

How much does a session with a makeup artist cost?

How much a makeup artist will charge you for service will depend on a broad range of different factors. Firstly, the cost of booking a makeup artist will vary based on what city you’re located in as well as which makeup artist you choose to visit. Makeup artists with more experience and more training typically have higher-priced services. Another factor is what type of makeup session you’re looking to schedule an appointment for. A service such as bridal makeup application will likely cost less than a more specialized service such as special effects makeup using prosthetics. Nationwide, the average price of booking a makeup artist ranges between $90 and $475—but don’t worry, you won’t have to play a guessing game when it comes to pricing.
