    Cosmetician comes to mind, but maybe only AE.
    Make-up Artist
    would be more stylish and appropriate for TV, film and theater.

    We need more information. :)

    Do they do it in a shop, selling cosmetics, or in a beauty shop?
    I call these people cosmetologists.

    Or do they do it for people who will act in plays or movies?
    I call those people "make-up artists". Here is the Wiki article: CLICK.

    - This person has a beauty shop and make up for people in general such as brides, people who want to attend weddings or models. What word do you use in this case? :)
