State License Requirements

To work as a professional makeup artist in Pennsylvania, you should earn your esthetician or cosmetology license. Since there is not a specific license for makeup, these are your two best options. If you are just focused on makeup and aren't interested in hair or nail services, then we recommend esthetician programs. Cosmetology programs can be good if you want to learn a full spectrum of skills.

Education Details

Many Pennsylvania makeup artist programs can give you a broad set of skills that can help you work in many areas and develop the professional skills to succeed. Since this is a broad field, with opportunities in film, television, salons, theater, advertising, modeling, and more, compare all your program options before making an enrollment decision. Look at the courses each school offers to make sure the learning outcomes align with your professional goals.
