Where only in not NULL


I need some help with a SELECT

Its like

SELECT * FROM artist WHERE id=1 AND makeup = yes

The problem is makeup can be NULL and if its null the SELECT wont work.

I need to check IFNULL.

Like IF makeup NOTNULL then AND makup = yes

Can someone help me,

I'm not sure I understand the question.

first off, yes is a string, so the query should be:
SELECT * FROM artist WHERE id=1 AND makeup = 'yes'

using makeup = 'yes' in the where clause will exclude records where NULL is used since NUll is not equal to yes

are you trying to return records where the makeup column contains either NULL or yes?

in that case:
SELECT * FROM artist WHERE id=1 AND (makeup = 'yes' OR makeup = NULL)
