  • Dermatologist

Believe it or not, the cosmetic dermatologist mapping your skin and helping you to develop a great skincare routine is a medical doctor. They specialize in skin, hair and nails. If you want to become a dermatologist, you need to have a passion for the extreme cases when it comes to your beauty needs. You should also know that it’s not all makeup and cosmetics; a strong stomach may be required.

  • Eyelash Technician

Oh, those long, long eyelashes you add to your eyes before a night out need to come from somewhere. That wonderful person you see for yours before you go out and party has a career in lashes, and you could have one, too. There’s no need to go through years of beauty school, not when you can be on your way within a few days and the right certification.

  • Graphic Design

The cosmetics industry is always in need of product and packaging designers who are able to keep up with the brands emerging into the industry. You can combine a love of cosmetics and beauty with your awesome skills at a computer.

  • Spa Owner

If you love all things Zen, you’ll love a spa day, right? Perhaps you can’t help but think that you’d love to change everything around in a spa because you think you’d do it better? Either way, you can open your own salon and spa and focus your passions where they lie. Whether it’s skincare and massage, haircare and hair masks, you can own it and be the one calling the shots!

  • Beauty Therapist

Those careers that are all things beauty are best suited for those who can see themselves chatting to clients, getting to know people and being a sounding board for others while beautifying!

  • Nail Technician

You can create artwork in miniature if you’re a nail technician, and working as a nail tech you’ll create the designs that suit the client

in front of you. You can work in a salon or be a freelancer - choices!
