Makeup is an art and a form of self-expression that people have engaged in for thousands of years. During ancient times, makeup was used for religious rituals and cultural traditions, and for enhancing one's beauty. 

In ancient Egypt, both men and women used kohl to line their eyes and create a smoky effect. In ancient Greece, lead-based makeup delivered a pale complexion – though at the cost of being toxic. During the Renaissance, women used egg whites to create a matte complexion and natural pigments to color their lips and cheeks.

Today, makeup is more popular than ever. Makeup tutorials and beauty influencers inspire new trends and styles, and people use makeup to express their personalities and individuality. You can use makeup to enhance your features, conceal imperfections, or create a unique style – from subtle, natural-looking makeup to bold, dramatic looks that make a statement. 

There are many types of makeup products, like foundation, concealer, blush, eye shadow, mascara, and lipstick. You can create a complete look using multiple types of makeup, or choose just a few. Select high-quality, safe, and certified makeup that is healthy for your skin, your health, and the environment. Quality makeup is often easier to apply and gives you better-looking results.

Why You Should Learn Makeup

Do you ever feel like the way you picture yourself in your mind doesn’t match the way you appear to the world? Makeup gives you a way to express your creativity, individuality, and personal style. When you learn to apply makeup that enhances your natural features, you can feel more confident and empowered.

Despite the seemingly effortless results some people achieve with makeup, making it look great is an acquired skill. Learning to apply makeup can be a fun and social activity, where you bond with others who share your interest in beauty and fashion. Who knows, you may become so good at applying makeup that you’ll be in demand for your friends’ special occasions, or enjoy a new, creative career as a makeup artist. 

The cosmetics industry is a 45 billion dollar market in the United States, and almost 400,000 people work in the beauty industry. Makeup artists for theater and performance earn an average annual wage of $124,000. There are many resources available to help you develop your makeup skills and discover your unique style.

5 Ways to Learn Makeup

What Will I Need to Learn Makeup?

When you learn makeup, you’ll develop a variety of skills and techniques and knowledge about different products and tools. If you're just starting out, you’ll need a few essential things to begin your makeup journey.

Makeup Brushes and Tools

The right tools are essential for achieving professional-looking makeup. You'll need a range of brushes, like foundation brushes, eye shadow brushes, and contouring brushes. Plus, you’ll need other tools like makeup sponges, eyelash curlers, and tweezers.

Makeup Products

To start practicing makeup, you'll need to invest in a few basic products like foundation, concealer, blush, eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, and lip products. You may want to purchase products that suit your own skin type and skin tone – you can always practice on yourself.

Skincare Products

Before you apply makeup you should start with clean, properly prepared skin. Use products for cleansing, toning, and moisturizing your face, plus skincare products that address your skin concerns, like acne or aging.

Lighting

You must have good lighting for accurate makeup application, so you can see facial details clearly. Invest in a makeup mirror with lights or set up a workspace near a window with natural light.

If you're taking a class, many of these materials will likely be provided for you. If you're learning on your own, it's important to invest in quality materials that will allow you to practice and hone your skills. You’ll want to expand your collection as you master makeup artistry and invest in more specialized products and tools.

Is it Difficult to Learn Makeup?

Like any skill, learning makeup requires practice and patience. At first, it may seem overwhelming to understand the different techniques, products, and tools involved in makeup application. Taking a class can help you learn the basics and gain confidence in your skills. If you are more advanced, a class can help you quickly master professional makeup skills.

Remember that makeup is an art form and everyone's approach and look will differ. Don't be discouraged if it takes time to find what works for you – keep practicing and experimenting until you find the techniques and products that express your personal style.
