Get Certified as a Makeup Artist

To become a makeup artist, specific training is required. Generally, there are two options. Many businesses and spas offer certified makeup courses onsite led by licensed instructors. It is also possible to complete courses online. Before you begin a course, ensure that they are fully licensed and certified to give you the qualifications that you need. Check reviews and ask questions before you hand over the money.

The type of training that is required for your new career can depend on the state in which you live, so it is important that you check your local state requirements before you commit to a makeup course. The training required to become a makeup artist is sometimes offered within larger training packages such as beautician courses, as well as being offered as standalone opportunities. Most courses will not only teach you the specifics of makeup application but should also train you in a range of hygiene practices to keep you and your clients safe.

Online Makeup Video Training

For those looking for an alternative training option before they commit to a licensed course, there are countless videos and tutorials online that demonstrate effective makeup tips and techniques.
