Making money from a hobby is a wonderful thing, and there are many ways that you can do it. If you enjoy sports, you don’t have to be a professional athlete to create a career from your passion. You can coach, become a sports writer or photographer, teach physical education or work at a local gym. There’s always more than one option. But, what about if you love makeup? If you’ve got a dresser full of your favorite products, you spend hours practicing new techniques, you’ve got a keen eye for what looks good, and nothing gives you a greater joy than finding a fantastic new product for a great price? Can you make money from your love of makeup? Of course, you can, and there’s more than one option. Let’s take a look at some of them.

Makeup Artist

The most obvious way to make money from your love of makeup and beauty products is as a makeup artist. To work in a shop, on a beautycounter or for a professional company you’ll need qualifications, but as someone with a passion, this should be good fun.

As a makeup artist, you could work for a beauty parlor or spa; you could work freelance as an event artist. You could work on film sets and in TV studios, and you could even teach. You’d also have the skills you need to start your own business, offering makeup tutorials as well as sessions and advice.

Blogger or Vlogger

A less traditional way to make money out of your love of beauty products is working as a blogger or vlogger. There are millions of blogs out there, and beauty is a common niche. While this means your blog or vlog will have competition for readers and work opportunities, that doesn’t mean it’s too late to get involved. The beauty of vlogs and blogs is that your personality counts. People will read for you. They’ll want your opinions, your tips and to hear more from you. Spend some time learning more about your craft and building up an audience. Then, you’ll be able to make money from advertising and sponsored contents as well as writing reviews for big brands and getting to try out the best new products.


Selling is always a good way to make money, and the more you know about something, the better you’ll be at it. If you want to sell online, look at Mastermyfinance’s Younique review for one fantastic option.


If you don’t want to run a beauty blog for yourself, look at paid writing opportunities for other blogs. There are plenty out there looking for interesting and informative content. You could set up as a freelance writer and start sending samples to your favorite blogs for consideration.


Unless you work as a personal shopper or buyer for a large beauty retailer, you might not be able to make a living out of shopping for makeup. But, you could earn a little extra. Use cashback sites and loyalty schemes to earn what you can every time you spend or your favorites.
