Before you decide to hire a good makeup artist, whether it’s for your important occasion or you are attending a company dinner, you should understand the journey of becoming a makeup artist.
Most professional makeup artists graduated from the prestigious makeup academy. However, if you are hiring a makeup artist in Malaysia, there are several reputable makeup academies that are well known for educating some pro makeup artist.

Besides academy, you have to learn about the makeup artist experience as well.
Some good makeup artist is able to become PRO and fast-track their career, with the ability to absorb all the training and exposure like a “sponge”
There are several makeup artists that actively involved in local events in Malaysia, such as Fashion Walk in KL that hosted every year in Klang Valley, or Jom Kahwin (Wedding Expo for Muslim) that is held every year at Shah Alam.
By attending all these local events in Malaysia, the makeup artist will be able to learn insights about the local culture and get to know what are the latest makeup style and trend. It’s a good way to keep them updated with makeup trend.
It’s really important to know if the makeup artist has a piece of strong knowledge of a makeup product.
