Industry Publications

The Artisan is the official quarterly publication of the Make-Up Artists & Hair Stylists Guild, IATSE Local 706. This exclusive craft publication is not available on newsstands and is not for the general public. 2,500 copies are printed each quarter and are mailed directly to every single guild member, with bonus distribution to various entertainment and beauty industry personnel. The recipients ofThe Artisan represent the working union Make-Up Artists and Hair Stylists in film, television, commercials, theater, videotape, digital media and theme parks. These creative artists determine what make-up and hair products and services will be used on a production for all actors, actresses and special character effects, and in turn, influence millions of consumers with their choices.

Fangoria is an internationally distributed US film fan magazine specializing in the genres of horror, slasher, splatter, and exploitation films, in regular publication since 1979.

Key Publishing Group is your portal to the make-up industry. The company was founded by Emmy Award-winning make-up artist Michael Key to educate, connect and inspire artists and make-up lovers around the world. Here’s how our small, dedicated staff makes that happen:


Key started Make-Up Artist magazine in 1996 as a simple flier called Craft News; since then, it has become the make-up community’s top resource for innovative make-up techniques and the latest industry news and trends. Read in more than 70 countries, Make-Up Artist is a bimonthly source for pros and aspiring artists working in film, fashion, TV, theater, retail and beyond. But the helpful tips, inspiring images and insider information have been a big hit with the public, too. We reach generations of artists around the world through the pages of our magazine and our interactive tablet edition. An in-development online edition of the magazine will provide another way for us to reach artists.


The International Make-Up Artist Trade Show (IMATS) is the make-up world’s biggest gathering. Thousands of make-up artists, vendors and enthusiasts discuss, display and collect the best the industry has to offer. Guests come from around the world to meet other professionals, learn new techniques and get updates on the latest products. Industry leaders (including Oscar and Emmy winners) conduct classes and demos at IMATS, and new products debut there. Before IMATS, there were no trade shows specifically for make-up artists, although the demand was there. IMATS made its 1997 debut in Los Angeles; today, the show is held six times annually: in Los; New York City; London; Vancouver, B.C.; Sydney; and Toronto.


Our digital reach far exceeds our print and tablet editions: We have hundreds of thousands of social-network followers—a number that’s growing daily. With four websites and a social media presence on the major channels, it’s easier than ever for make-up artists—aspiring and professional—to find us. Our websites provide valuable, exclusive content. features breaking industry news, a database of international make-up schools and the Make-Up Artist store, which stocks issues ofMake-Up Artist magazine, exclusive apparel and more. is famous for its Beauty Breakdowns, which reveal what products artists used to create celebrity looks; the site also offers a cosmetics database and advice from industry experts. gives IMATS show-goers all the information they need on all our events, from buying tickets to previewing classes.
