Your role as a Make-up Artist requires you to have a great work ethic, be energetic, social, love to be a part of a team and not be adverse to early mornings! The position is suited to candidates who are confident in their artistic abilities and have an understanding of wigs and postiche application, styling and care.
Ideal candidates will be confident and happy to work in small teams. Following an initial and intense ‘training’ period at the beginning of the season, candidates are then trusted to run their department, take responsibility for ensuring schedules are followed and characters are in full makeup within the allotted time frame.
Makeup application is somewhat basic due to the limited timing of the application; however, candidates have a chance during the training period to offer suggestions, ideas and collaborate to come up with the quickest and most effective way to complete character looks.
Magic to Life
As Santa is regarded as the main event, he must look authentic and magical. Attention to detail and care for the wigs and postiche is of utmost importance. We want to bring the magic to life!
Overall, we are looking for hard-working, confident individuals who can communicate and collaborate with not only their small team but also the wider team. Quick thinking and the ability to adapt to the new (cold) surroundings is a must and of course, having lots of Christmas spirit!
A Makeup Artistry qualification is desired alongside some knowledge of the care and application of wigs and postiche.
