Makeup Artist Cover Letter Sample

Updated on June 14, 2016

A makeup artist cover letter should always be tailored as per prospective employer’s specific needs. Below are two golden tips that will help you write a good cover letter for makeup artist position.

• Make some extra effort and find the name of the hiring manager. Letters that begin with the name of HR manager have greater chances of being taken seriously as compared to those beginning with generic salutation like Dear Sir/Madam.

• Explain why you want to work for the specific employer and how your skills will help you contribute to their bottom-line.
