Similar to associations, there are many groups available for makeup artists to network and provide industry-relevant support to each other. These groups allow professionals to share experiences and insights with like-minded colleagues in what often becomes an all-inclusive community. Groups often meet online or in real life, and sometimes both, depending on location and the type of group. There are numerous groups available to join for free on social media such as Facebook and Instagram. Websites such as Meetup allow you to search for industry-specific meetups in your local area, allowing makeup artists and other beauty therapists to come together in one place. The world of YouTube has also become a meeting place for makeup artists across the world, as people share their insights and secrets into makeup artistry and creating online global connections.
