Love Beauty? Here Are 6 Great Career Options


If you love looking beautiful and enjoy working and learning about new products, a career in the world of beauty might be just what you are looking for.  This is a vast industry with a huge amount of career paths and choices available to you.  Here are six great career options to think about.


A beautician is someone who can help you look beautiful.  They can offer eyelash extensions, nail art, tanning, waxing, and many other things besides.  You will have to attend a three-year course to qualify but once you have there is a huge amount of work available.  You may start in a salon, but you could end up working on a cruise ship, a luxury hotel, or running your own business.  The options are endless.

Medical Aesthetics

Armed with a medical aesthetics diploma, you will be working on improving the physical appearance of patients by using non-invasive and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. This is a varied job that requires hard work, great training, and lots of empathy.  You could find yourself helping people to get rid of moles, scars, wrinkles, and unwanted hair among other things.  You could also train in dermatology and reconstructive surgery from here too.


If you are beautiful, slim, and tall you might consider working as a fashion model.  This is not the easiest side of the beauty industry to get into but once your face is known you could be worth a lot of money.  You will find yourself gracing the catwalks of London, Paris, and Milan while decked in the latest designs from the most prominent fashion designers of the day.

Make-Up Artist

Training as a make-up artist will take time but you could then find yourself working with the most famous people alive on the stage or screen.  Every film in Hollywood and stage production around the world needs to hire make-up artists to create the look the actors need.  It is often who you know rather than what you know that will get your foot in the door, but once you are well-known you should be offered work frequently.

Beauty Writer

As a beauty writer, you could work for a glossy magazine, a website, or even start your own blog.  Many writers go on to become editors and get to know everyone who is anyone in the industry.  You will be at the cutting edge of new developments and products that are made available and be able to bring them to life on the page.

Image Consultant

An image consultant will help their clients decide what skincare and make-up products to use and how to dress for every occasion depending on their skin tone, skin type, location, and personal style. You may work for a department store or set up your own business and advertise your services to individual clients.

These are just a few of the careers that will be open for you if you decide on a career in the beauty industry.
