Makeup Artist Licensing in Vermont



Vermont Makeup License Requirements

If you have a love for all things makeup and want to turn your passion into a career, you probably want to know if you need a Vermont make up artist license. The answer is yes, and no, actually. Vermont currently does not have a makeup license that is specific to makeup artistry. However, you must either earn your cosmetologist or esthetician license to work legally in this state. Both types of programs will include a makeup curriculum, but neither one is a substitute for makeup artist specific training. In a makeup artist program, you can learn the foundational skills and specializations for a full range of services.

Many makeup artist students also take a cosmetology or esthetician program during their makeup training. That’s why many beauty schools offer all of these types of programs for students to get as much training as possible.

To explore those options, and to compare the requirements for each one, use the links below:

Cosmetology and esthetics programs typically have make up courses that cover the basics. Cosmetology programs will also give you hair and nail skills, as well as some esthetician training. Esthetician programs sometimes have a bit more makeup training than cosmetology programs. They also include waxing, hair removal, and facial courses. All of these programs can help you find work in salons and spas.
