Idaho Makeup Artist License Requirements

Do you want to work as a professional makeup artist in Idaho? If so, you will want to begin comparing cosmetology and esthetician programs in Idaho. Completing one of these two programs would satisfy the requirements for earning an Idaho makeup license, since it would allow you to work as a make up artist for compensation.

To practice make up application for compensation, you will need to complete one of the following licensure options:

Cosmetology License

• 2000 hours of guided instruction at a state approved beauty school
• OR – applicants can earn 4000 apprenticeship hours

Idaho makeup schools follow the NIC standards for the cosmetology and esthetician testing examination. Those who have earned their hours may take the test that fits their education. Once you pass your practical and written portions of these tests you can apply for licensure.

Education Requirements to Get A Makeup Artist License in Idaho

What you can expect from makeup artist courses and what you need to become licensed are two slightly different things. Esthetician and cosmetology programs offer additional skills that may go beyond your career ambitions. Even if you have a sole interest in working with makeup, and that’s it, you will need to obtain one of the two licenses Idaho requires.

Makeup artist courses in Idaho may focus mostly on makeup techniques, along with safety and sanitation procedures. You will learn to work with stage, film, TV, and other types of makeup. While this type of program may be essential to the quality of your work, you may want to consider schools that offer all three types of programs.

Cosmetology training will help you learn makeup application, plus:

• Haircutting, coloring and design
• Nail specialties
• Hand and foot massage
• Skin related procedures in the facial area

Esthetician training will also focus on makeup application, along with these related topics:

• Facial cleansing
• Exfoliation
• Face massage
• Hair removal
• Masks
• Blood exposure procedures
• Supplies

How to Get a Makeup Artist License Renewed in Idaho
