What does a makeup artist do?

The fashion and beauty industries rely heavily on one another, and it is makeup artists who navigate the gap and execute the vision of fashion editors or designers, creating magical makeup looks for models on the runway or in the pages of magazines.  Experts in problem-solving, fine detail work, patience, and all things aesthetically-inclined, these behind the scenes warriors are beyond crucial.
