What Classes Needed to Become a Makeup Artist:
Because makeup classes usually aren't offered in high school, it is hard to take classes that directly apply to it, so fashion and makeup colleges typically look at the student's overall preformance in high school.

Any cometology or fashion electives offered.
Helping with any preformances or theater
When being a makeup artist, there are many different areas you could be working in, so there is never a "for sure" work schedule. There are a lot of things people need to be aware of such as...
Schedule for a Makeup Artist
You might not work for days, weeks, or months.
Working on a movie or in theater means you could be working 12 to 16 hours for six days a week. This could be during the day or night.
Working on a TV series means you'll work for around 70 hours a week. The only break you get will be your "turn-around" which is usually 9 hours and then you have to be back to set.
You might have to travel frequently. The locations you are sent to might be remote and away from your family or friends.
