My Youtube Video Guide for Film Makeup Artists

youtube videos for makeup artists

Youtube is an amazing place for content, information, and entertainment, but it can also be a dangerous place for misinformation and incorrect learning methods. In saying that, I follow a small select few who post fantastic videos relating to makeup artistry and film. I’ve been slowly putting together a list of my favourite videos, which I recommend watching if you plan on pursuing a career in makeup. This is an evolving list, so please don’t hesitate to send an email or message if you have any videos you think should be added! Let’s make the ultimate Youtube playlist!
