How to get into editorial makeup work

One of the biggest moments of a makeup artist’s career can be the first time you see your work in print, on the cover of a magazine, on a billboard, or, even on a magazine website.  Being a published makeup artist can take your career to the next level, it can open doors that weren’t previously open to you, you may book more clients, and more of the clients you want to work with.

But just how do you go about getting published? Where do you even start?

I will never forget the first time I saw my work published, and its STILL a buzz, after all this time.  A couple of years ago I was driving with my partner on the long road up to North Queensland, and I was completely surprised to see my work on a billboard.  Of course I made him stop so I could take a photo!
