Oregon Makeup Artist License Requirements

Becoming a makeup artist can give you opportunities to work in a variety of social and creative environments, including film and television, theater, salons, spas, and more. To earn the equivalent of your make up artist license in Oregon, you must obtain your esthetician’s license. While this may seem initially frustrating for those who just want to focus on makeup, esthetics training is relevant to makeup artistry, and can add some notable extra skills to your resume.

Esthetician courses can add the following skills to your makeup services:

• Hair removal
• Waxing
• Head and neck massage
• Facials
