How Much Does Makeup Artist School Cost?

 
 average costTypical: $7,000-$17,000+ 
post Post    

Makeup artists work in fashion, television, film, weddings, and in retail stores applying makeup and offering instruction in the application of makeup. Employment opportunities in beauty services are expected to grow[1] , according to the Occupational Outlook Handbook, but most new jobs will be in salons and retail stores. About 2,100 people in the U.S. are employed as theatrical and performance makeup artists, according to the OOH, and about 3,000 makeup artists will work in this field by 2016.

Typical costs:

  • Schools for makeup artistry are typically private, and tuition can be costly, ranging from $7,000 to $17,000 or more.
  • Tuition at EI School of International Makeup is $12,750 for a 12-month program in makeup artistry, with courses such as fashion, photography and theatrical makeup applications.
  • MUD's Fashion Makeup Artistry Program program is about $11,000 at its Los Angeles campus, and prepares students for work in retail, entertainment and bridal industries.
  • Makeup kits can be a costly but necessary additional expense. EI lists makeup kits as an extra $1,500, while MUD tells students to expect to pay $2,200 for makeup kits.

What should be included:
  • Training includes in-class instruction and practice on live models, and begins with basic makeup application, such as makeup for weddings, before moving on to more advanced skills, such as applying makeup with air pressure tools, makeup for different skin tone and ethnicity, and high fashion or avant garde makeup application. .
  • Advanced courses for students training to work in television, film or theatre may include instruction in creating characters through the use of makeup and applying prosthetics.
  • Instruction may also include training in hairstyling for students who want to work primarily in fashion.
  • The development of a portfolio (photos of a student's work that function as a resume on job interviews) are also part of some training programs.
Additional costs:
  • Some states, like New York[2] require makeup artists to be licensed, but this requirement is not universal.
Discounts:
  • Some schools, like EI in Los Angeles, are eligible for federal financial aid Stafford Loans, Pell Grants, and GI bill assistance.
  • Some schools, such as Westmore Academy, offer their own loan programs and monthly payment plans.
Shopping for makeup artist school:
  • For licensing requirements by state, see the Beauty School Directory[3] for a webpage that offers links to the licensing boards of most states.
  • Admissions offices should be able to provide information about the success of past graduates, including pass rates for licensing exams and job placement rates.
