Makeup.School is an international online training center that offers a well-known certificate in the beauty industry which is ideal to start your own makeup artistry or applying for a makeup artist position.
The certificate you will receive is a Certificate of Completion. You can become officially licensed when you study at a cosmetology school (2 year full time). Cosmetology includes anatomy & physiology, makeup, body massage, electrotherapy, facials & skincare, waxing & tanning, etc. Makeup will actually form only a small part of your studies and you will not go in-depth in any makeup subject when study at a cosmetology school.
To perform beautician work such as facials, waxing, etc . you would need to be a cosmetologist. Typically you don’t need to be a cosmetologist to work as a freelance makeup artist. However, some stores and salons may require you to be a a cosmetologist or esthetician to work for them. It is always best to check if there are local or regional regulations before you start to practice for hire.
