Show Business And The World Of Make-Up

By Mei Goldenrod

There are many different paths to reach a life of show business. If one is talented with music, he could be a singer or perhaps a musician, and there are many who choose to go into the field of acting. However, there is one much easier way to have a show business career without having to work nearly as hard to get there.

Show business is in constant demand for creative beauticians and make-up artists. In all areas of performance, whether on stage or television, proper make-up is absolutely essential for a successful show.

In fact, most television and Broadway shows select a make-up crew before actually selecting the cast, as a show without qualified beauticians cannot even begin to exist.

People are unaware of the large amounts of time and energy that are exerted into the make-up that is required for every kind of show. The average thirty-second television commercial consisting of three main actors and five to ten extras can mean about twelve to thirteen hours of make-up preparations, depending on the scene and setting.

As a matter of fact, a make-up artist hired to oversee a television show, commercial, or movie does not finish working at the end of pre-stage preparations. What usually happens is that the artist is asked to remain for the duration of the filming in order to make adjustments on the actors, as they often sweat and require new make-up in order to continue filming.

The same is true for plays and magic shows. The average play is made up of at least five different scenes, and the average magic show has between 10-15 magic tricks, all of which require new make-up.

It is important to note the fact that make-up artists receive special recognition for their work in numerous occasions. Every year, the Academy Awards give an award for the best make-up in a feature film, in which the most creative and precise make-up artist has his work recognized across the globe.

In conclusion, it is important to be aware of the fact that beauticians and make-up professionals are not only hired in the corner beauty shop but are, rather, an inseparable part of the show business industry.
