Accreditation/Licensing: No state licensing is required to perform makeup duties in film, theatre, television, photography, or retail settings. However, if you desire to perform makeup in a public beauty salon, you must obtain a state cosmetology, or an esthetician license. The primary advantage of a makeup school being "accredited" is its ability to offer financial aid. NACCAS is not a government agency. While accreditation is important to most beauty schools, there are still tons of excellent beauty schools available that choose not to be accredited. Certificates of accredited makeup schools are the same as those certificates awarded to from non-accredited schools. Although cosmetologists are required to become licensed, makeup artists are not. To learn more about the industry, makeup artists who work in salons can seek membership with the National Cosmetology Association, which provides networking and industry information for makeup artists and cosmetologists. Makeup artists can also seek membership with the Personal Care Products Council, an organization dedicated to the safety and study of makeup and other personal care products. A certificate in makeup artistry is sufficient for most makeup artist careers. Makeup artists usually advance in their careers by building a steady clientele and providing quality, consistent makeup services. Getting Hired: We are about the only makeup course that provides help building cover letters, resumes, and thank you etters. We exercise interviewing skills to help you get that job you dream of. With a high success rate, we pride ourselves with great customer service and vigorous preparation for a lucrative career. We offer a help line for all of our students, during and after the completion of the course. Many of our students go on to work for very popular cosmetic retail companies, freelance artists for photo, and video shoots, movies, and some even start their own makeup companies. It's all in hands of the beholder. How far do you want to take your makeup career? Enroll today! There are no gimmicks. We have been in service since 2009. If you are under the age of 18, you can attend with the approval and consent of your guardian or parent. There's no particular education level required. Please note that this is not an online course. We are now offering a 175-dollar course for self-enrichment. For additional information, please find our number on the post, and call or contact us via email.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Alexis Ellen Makeup Artist

(1 review)

What do you love about your job?

I love being of service to others, and art has been something I have expressed since childhood. Being face to face with each client allows me the opportunity to connect with them on a deeper level. Through listening to what each person wants, I'm able to create a look that lets their real beauty shine.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

I have been expressing my creativity through different forms of art. One day, I had the opportunity to paint a human face, at that moment, I knew I had to pursue the practice of makeup artistry.
