16 October 2017 No Comment

People have always been fussed about their personal appearance. But the rise of social media means that we’re in the public eye more than ever: there’s no hiding. It’s not surprising that people want to ensure that they look perfect at all times. This may well have been the main contributing factor to the huge expansion of the beauty industry over the past decade or so. Not only are there a whole new array of products about now, but there are more and more job roles in the beauty industry opening up. So, if you are looking for a new career and enjoy helping people to look and feel their best, here are a few positions to consider.

Esthetician

Okay, you may not have heard of an esthetician before. But not to worry. An esthetician is essentially a trained cosmetology professional working in the field of skincare. This is a broad field, but job roles will generally include providing personal skincare plans for clients after conducting a full assessment of their skincare needs, performing services such as chemical peels, waxing and giving massages. The training process for this role is relatively simple: find a state approved and certified esthetician school where you will be able to learn the tricks of the trade and earn your licence. Each state will have a Board of Cosmetology. This will be able to recommend the best options in regards to your education and training. For more information, take a look at this resume for esthetician.

Makeup Artist

Anyone with an interest in makeup is most likely in the routine of getting up and doing their own makeup most days. But if you want to make a career out of it, it’s good to know that there are plenty of positions out there to fill. Makeup artists have seen more and more people become aware of their job, as increasing numbers of reality TV stars involve them in their shows and post pictures with them online. Think about it: you could be doing the makeup of the rich and famous! Alternatively, you can specialise. For example, doing makeup for people’s special occasions such as weddings. The key to this career is practice. Spend as much time as possible improving your skill. This is easier than ever, as there are hundreds of tutorials out there on the web. YouTube is perhaps the best place to start. Take photographs of your work and begin to build a portfolio. Make sure that this is both in print and online. This widens your potential audience, as everyone will then have access to images of your work. From this point on, you just need to self promote. Get yourself out there. Request that happy customers recommend you. You should also invest in professional business cards that can be handed on to ensure that people have an easy way of remembering who you are, where you’re based and have contact details for you.

These are just two roles in the beauty industry. There are plenty more out there. So get searching and start making your way to the top of the bustling beauty industry! Whether you want to mingle with the rich and famous or the everyday person, there’s something out there for you.
