This study focused on the orientation of makeup education, considering the characteristics of the makeup sector. For this, the academic categories and properties of makeup in the theoretical areas of makeup education were analyzed. The practical fields of makeup techniques were divided into five different areas, and their characteristics and core competencies were analyzed. Then, the study results were verified through an in-depth interview. The results found the following: The academic categories of makeup are correlated with various fields such as art, technique, design, public health, science, medicine, and humanities. Analysis on the five different fields was mostly matched in practices. However, core competencies revealed a big difference in stage performances and fashion shows. Overall, basic beauty makeup, basic stage makeup, and basic media makeup techniques were found in terms of the core competencies. In particular, there was a high demand for hairstyling skills.

본 연구는 메이크업 분야별 특성을 고려한 메이크업 교육 방향성에 초점을 두었다. 우선, 메이크업 교육의 이론적 근거가 되는 메이크업의 학문적 범주와 속성을 분석하였다. 유사한 메이크업 기술이 필요한 실무 분야를 5가지로 구분하여 각 특성과 핵심자질을 분석하였고, 전문가 심층인터뷰를 통해 그 연구결과를 검증하였다. 결론은 다음과 같다. 메이크업의 학문적 범주는 예술, 기술, 디자인, 보건, 과학, 의학 인문학 등과 관련되어 있다. 5가지 분야에 대한 분석은 대개 실무와 일치함을 알 수 있었지만, 무대 공연과 패션쇼 분야의 핵심자질은 많은 차이가 있었다. 공통적으로 가장 중요한 핵심자질은 기본 뷰티 메이크업, 기본 무대 분장, 기본 영상 분장 기술이었으며 특히, 헤어스타일링 기술에 대한 요구가 높았음을 알 수 있었다.
