Top Makeup Tutor related questions

What should I ask a makeup tutor?

Some things you can ask your makeup tutor are:

  • Can I see your portfolio?
  • How do I promote myself as a freelance makeup artist?
  • Can you do online tutorials?
  • What do you love best about being a makeup tutor?

If there are any makeup artistry areas that you would like to improve on, you can also ask your potential makeup tutor about that particular experience or skill. 

Can makeup tutoring be done online?

Usually, yes. Many online makeup lessons and tutorials are made by pro makeup artists, celebrities, and even brands like MAC. If you prefer to do your makeup lessons virtually, it shouldn’t take too long to find a program that’ll suit your needs. When it comes to makeup tutoring, this may depend on the Tasker you book. If virtual learning is something you would prefer, specify this in your task post.

How long does makeup artist training take?

This depends on the kind of makeup lessons you want to take! Some courses last only a few weeks, while others can take as long as eight months. If you want to take things a step further and learn to become a beautician or expert eyebrow threader, this will take additional time but will certainly bolster the skills and services you can offer your clients. 

How do you become a MUA?

To become a professional makeup artist, you’ll need to go to makeup school and gain the necessary knowledge and skills. After this, it’s time to earn your professional experience by working freelance, joining a salon, or getting clients from the fashion, photography, or film industries. A licensing exam may also factor in as a requirement before you start working as a professional MUA in some areas.

How do you apply makeup like a professional?

Start by applying a primer. Follow this up with a foundation that suits your skin tone and type. Next, apply a concealer, then set the foundation. Then, apply eyeliner, curl your lashes, put on a coat of mascara, then apply eyeshadow. Next, fill in your brows. Follow this up with a blush, making sure to choose an application method that best suits your desired look. Finally, it’s time to moisturise your lips and put on a nice coat of lipstick.

What do makeup tutoring services include?

Usually, your makeup tutor covers the topics you want to work on when it comes to makeup artistry. This may include how to do bridal makeup, period makeup, building your portfolio or specific skills like colour theory and contouring. 

If you want to sign up for makeup lessons instead of makeup tutoring for ongoing lessons, the Tasker may develop their course guide based on your needs. In general, here’s what you can expect when you book a makeup tutor near you:

Introduction to makeup artistry

If you’re new to the world of makeup, your Tasker may start with an introduction to makeup, its history, and where the industry is today. They’ll most likely introduce you to the tools of the trade, such as brushes, sponges, applicators, and even more advanced tools like the airbrush. 

Next, they may discuss skincare and the importance of preparing your client’s skin. It’s also vital to cover sanitation and hygiene, especially in the context of events when you may be using the same tools across several clients. The introduction to makeup may also cover different product types and various eye and face shapes in makeup. 

Makeup skills training

Makeup skills may be covered either during regular makeup lessons or as a tutoring session for aspiring makeup artists. These skills can include how to apply eyeshadow, how to perfect a makeup base, and how to give your client the best brows for their face shape and overall look. 

You may also get tips and tricks when it comes to doing contour, highlighter, and bronzer. Your makeup tutor may also help you brush up on colour theory and how to play with it through your different looks.

Different types of makeup

Another topic that your Tasker can cover is how to execute different makeup looks. These include high-fashion, editorial, wedding, period, stage, and creative makeup looks. If you request it or if your Tasker has the skills for it, they may even show you how to do special effects makeup tricks. 

Online or live tutorials

This depends on your needs and the Tasker’s ability to structure the course around them (especially if these involve virtual lessons). Online tutoring can be quite a challenge, especially since your tutor may not evaluate your work clearly, and you might not see their techniques in high definition. If you want to get the most out of your makeup lessons, we suggest requesting a makeup tutor in your location.
