Makeup Artist Salaries in Nevada

Lucrative job and salary prospects are available to makeup artists working in Nevada, especially those that specialize in theatrical and performance artistry.

In May 2013, the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics announced Nevada as a premier state for theatrical and performance-based makeup artists, reporting that:

  • Nevada held the third highest concentration of makeup artist jobs in the country
  • Nevada was the fifth highest paying state for makeup artists
  • The Las Vegas-Paradise metropolitan area held the third highest concentration of makeup artist jobs among metropolitan areas in the country

A notable portion of a makeup artist’s income in Nevada is gifted to them through added gratuity. Since government wage publications do not include monetary tip figures, so all makeup artist salary statistics should be viewed as base pay amounts.
