I think if you want to capture details, you need either a DSLR with some macro/close-up filters (or a macro lens; filters are less expensive, though), or a point-and-shoot with a big zoom lens. A P&S will be a cheaper option, but (IMO) a DSLR will give you more control and more choice.
My current camera is a Nikon D5100 with a standard 18-55mm lens, plus a manual focus 75-300mm lens. I also have a set of four macro/close up filters (+1, +2, +4, +10... for close-up makeup shots, a +2 or +4 should do fairly well), as well as a couple of wide-angle attachments (one of them is a fisheye, which you don't really need for makeup photography).
Really, though, the done thing would be to do your own research, find some cameras you like, and work out which one will best suit your needs and budget.
