Makeup Artist Salaries in Wyoming

Wyoming may be the least populous US state but it has an abundance of opportunities for makeup artists. There is no shortage of beauty schools in Wyoming at which individuals can learn the skills needed to become either a theatrical or a personal appearance makeup artist.

Personal makeup artists either work in cosmetics stores, spas and hotels or they enhance the appearance of individuals for weddings, proms or a special day. Theatrical makeup artists, on the other hand work in the performing arts and media production to prepare performers to reflect their role and its setting.

The “Cowboy State” offers a surprising number of jobs for both types of makeup artists. As home to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, as well as prime ski areas, rodeos and “Old West” attractions, there is a profusion of resorts, fine hotels and spas. In addition, the Jackson Hole area is noted for professional theater productions, alternate theater companies, independent film producing companies and film festivals. All of these endeavors are fertile ground for makeup artists.
