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.
However, as you mentioned you should not do anything that contradicts the rulings of Islam, like plucking eyebrows, drawing tattoos or seeing the awrah (private area) of another woman.
