Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah
Is it permissible to be a makeup artist? Doing makeup on Muslim/Non-Muslims?
Who may get it done for parties/photography etc? As long as we abstain from plucking eyebrow hairs/tattoos etc. Is it permissible?

Yes, it is permissible to be a makeup artist as it does not contradict any of the rulings of Islam, such that a woman beautifying herself for her husband is even an act of reward.
