If you love to experiment with fragrances, or makeup and you spend time on your skincare routines, you know what we’re talking about when we say that there is art in the makeup and beauty industries.

The cosmetics industry is huge, and there are hundreds of opportunities within it just waiting for you! You can try out so many different options in the industry if you don't know where you fit, but if you’re passionate about beauty and finding ways to improve on the beauty goals of others, then this is the industry for you. With this in mind, we’ve put together a great list of the best career ideas for those who love beauty and all it involves.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
