Careers for People Who Love Beauty

According to a recent study, almost 60% of employees in the US are planning to switch careers in 2024, with many intending to start their own business when doing so. After all, this will not only provide them with financial freedom and a better work-life balance but also the chance to pursue a career they are truly passionate about. 

Beauty lovers will be pleased to hear that there are many different career avenues to explore within the sector, all of which are surprisingly fun and profitable. After all, the “global beauty industry is a $532 billion business.

With that in mind, here are four career options for beauty lovers.


Working as a nail technician can be a lot of fun, especially when you get to experiment with different forms of nail art. Furthermore, as there’s always a demand for this kind of service, it's easy to build up a loyal customer base who will stop by each time they need a new manicure or pedicure. 

However, you’ll need to complete some training ahead of time, such as a gel nail training course. This will further refine your skills and add to the list of services you can offer to your clients. It also ensures that you appear more professional. 


If you’re a skincare lover, and your friends are always asking for tips on how to achieve your youthful glow, you may want to consider working as a dermatologist. While this is an incredibly rewarding career and one that can help you become more financially stable, it also requires a significant investment of your time and energy. This is because it requires you to study medicine and earn the relevant qualifications, which typically takes around four years (and a lot of studying).


If you’re a lover of beauty who wants to share makeup, skincare, and style tips with others without needing to take on any further qualifications, consider starting your own blog. This way, you can build your own platform designed around your interests and focus on topics that you are really passionate about.

However, this is not a career choice through which you’ll see an immediate return on investment. While you can earn money for blogging, this is only once you’ve established your readership and gained a suitable amount of online traction. 


Working as a make-up artist is another excellent career choice for beauty lovers. Again, you’ll need to complete some training ahead of time to ensure you are fully qualified and prepared for the industry, but once you’ve obtained these qualifications, there are many different avenues to pursue. For example, you may want to focus on a specialty, such as bridal or special occasion make-up, or even pursue work in the film and TV industry by working with special effects make-up.

Either way, this is the perfect opportunity to turn your love of beauty and the hours you’ve spent in front of the mirror perfecting your smokey eye into a profitable and fulfilling career!
