MAKEUP - MISSISSIPPI

Make-Up Artist Training
IN
Mississippi

If you’ve ever seen what celebrities look like without their makeup on, you likely know what kind of power makeup has over someone’s appearance!

If you like to spend your time watching makeup video tutorials, experimenting with different techniques and makeup colors, and exploring new brands, a career in makeup artistry may be in your future.

State License Requirements
N/A

Makeup artists are not licensed or regulated by the state of Mississippi in any way, so you can get the training you feel you need and start working in this field! It may be wise to choose a training program that provides theoretical and practical training in areas like daily makeup application, special events, airbrush makeup, and color theory.

Education Details

The courses you take in a makeup artist training course depend on which school you choose to attend and what skills you’re already bringing to the table. Some of the courses you may take include Culture and Appearance, Fundamentals of Makeup for Beauty and Fashion, Stage Make-Up, and Challenges in Makeup Artistry. In each class, you may learn about the theory of color selection, the challenges of applying makeup to different skin types and facial structures, and how you can bring your expertise to each aspect of your career. Practical experience is crucial, so plan on applying makeup to many different faces before you complete your education.

License Renewal
Hours required vary by licensure

Mississippi does not have a makeup artist license process. But, if you want to work as a practitioner here, you can either earn your cosmetology or esthetician’s license. If you just want to focus on a makeup career, you should check out esthetician programs first. They are typically shorter in duration. However, a cosmetology program can be a good choice if you are thinking about owning your own salon one day, or managing one. The renewal schedule is every two years with a $50 fee.

Working as a Makeup Artist

Your success as a makeup artist depends largely on how hard you’re willing to work, how many connections you can build in the cosmetology industry, and how much you build up your skills in the makeup industry. Makeup artists work in a variety of settings. You may provide makeup services in people’s homes, particularly for people who want to learn how to do their own makeup. Some artists work for salons, department stores, or specialty makeup stores. If you have specialized skills in makeup application for the stage or screen, you may be able to work for the entertainment industry. If you aim high and really work hard on building your professional network, you may become well-known for your makeup application abilities and even work for celebrities. Charlotte Tilbury is an example of success in this career path. Her knowledge of colors and her strong understanding of makeup application theory has made her the makeup artist of choice for the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders. Establishing your goals early on and working hard to achieve them can help you take your career to the next level.
