    MAC Makeup Artist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at MAC Cosmetics in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    First, I had a one-on-one interview with store manager. All went smoothly and it was fairly quick. Right after, the manager set me up for a second interview for a makeup demo for that same week. The makeup demo was timed for 30 minutes and I was being interviewed with another girl. I finished the demo a few minutes early because I already knew what look I was going for and what products I wanted. After the demo was over, the manager pulled me aside from my model and the other girl being interviewed and basically reviewed how everything went. She told me I did an amazing job and that I passed. I felt like I was floating on a cloud haha. She also told me what she loved and what I could've done better. I was then told that I will be receiving a call for my last one-on-one. I waited about 2 weeks to receive the call and fortunately did not have to do the final one-on-one interview, instead she skipped that step and offered me a Freelance position. I obviously took it! I should be getting the Permanent position in about 3 months. Overall, the hiring process went very well! There are a couple of important key things to keep in mind; wear makeup! (You're probably like "duh" but you'd be surprised!) *Wear all black professional clothing *Have your resume in hand always *Be confident *Be yourself, I cannot stress that enough *Do your research *Do not let your nerves show. If you do not get the job on your first try please don't give up, keep trying! I wish you all the best of luck on your journey! <3
