State License Requirements

Since there isn’t an official makeup artist license in Texas, we recommend earning your esthetician’s license as your most sensible route to a career. You can also choose cosmetology licensure, if you want to offer a full scope of services to your salon clients. This can also be a good choice if you want to open your own salon one day.
