So we've looked at the average salaries a Makeup Artist will earn in Belize. The next interesting data point is the distribution of salaries.

Salary ranges

We already know that a Makeup Artist can earn between 14,540 BZD and 46,720 BZD on average in Belize. This is known as the range in statistics.

The difference between the maximum and minimum values is a good indicator of variability in salaries, and can be used by employers to figure out how much they can expect to pay, and for employees to know how much they can earn.

The median salary for a Makeup Artist in Belize is 29,640 BZD. This is the middle value in the distribution of salaries.

What this means is that approximately 50% of the population earn less than 29,640 BZD, and 50% of the population earn more than 29,640 BZD.

If you are earning more than the median salary, that's a good indicator that you are being paid well.

If you're not earning more than the median salary, your objective should be to increase your earnings to be at least as high as the median salary (which you can do by asking for a pay rise, looking for a better paying job, etc).

Percentiles

Percentiles are similar to the median salary, but instead of looking at the middle value, they look at the values in the top and bottom half of the distribution.

The difference between a median and an average salary

The median and average salary are both indicators you can use to see if you are being paid fairly based on the overall population.

  • If your salary is higher than the average and the median salary, you are earning well compared to others.
