I'd like to take a few classes and learn to do make up for my models and customers. Any ideas on how I should go about that? What are the laws about doing in make up in Missouri? Workshops, classes?

I live in a small town and it's hard to get a good MUA. I've been using one that is very good, when she shows up.

Thanks for any info I can get!

You might want to try your local mall. At some of the makeup counters here in Virginia, you can sign up for classes.

In Texas makeup is taught by schools of cosmotology. Or beauty college as we like to call it.

You could also consider Candace Corey's workshop.

That's a good idea. But I didn't know if I had to have a license or anything like that. But it's a good place to start maybe.

I did check out the cosmotology school here in town. But the only teach the whole package. Cutting hair, coloring hair, styling hair, and then they touch a little on make up. That's not what I want. I'd like to be able to style hair, but not cut or color or anything.

I did check out Candice's workshop website. There is one in Chicago in April. Unfortunaltey...I can't make it that weekend. That sucks!!

Generally speaking, since you are doing the MUA work yourself - for your own purposes - non-commercial, you are not required to have a license. However, if you should choose to work for a salon you must have a license. I myself have a have a license but don't work for a salon, I have taken classes, but found that they are amateur at best. The word "remedial" comes to mind... In my opinion, one learns more from trial and error. You will also leave room for creativity and development of your own style without the constraints of the "Do's and Dont's " of formal learning (though formal environment has it's place). Counter girls are non-regulated as are the studio-makeup artists in such photoshops as "GlamourShots" which is defined as a retail market not really a photostudio. To decide if you need to follow strict codes and regulations you must decide if you are doing retail work, studio work or just hobby stuff... Hobby stuff has no need for a license, nor does a retail cosmetics specialist. If MUA work is not your sole source of income - nor will you ever make enough to claim on your taxes, I wouldn't worry about the legalities. Just offer the service as a bonus incentive for your models that sit for you, the photographer. Truthfully, the only reason I even have a license is because I am signed and represented. Otherwise I wouldn't even bother with any of the legal mumbo-jumbo... I fell asleep in class when I was taking my "Cosmetics Specialist" and "Beauty Consultant" courses. I don't remember my teacher's name nor the company that tested me. What does that say? I passed the courses with flying colors and never once cracked the books open except for the time I had that drooling incident (we won't elaborate).

Alot of skin care companies will train you and certify you to do makeup. Also contact Sephora stores, they have alot of traveling makeup artists ,Nars, Makeupforever, etc. and they can give you alot of information, I got licensed through a skin care company, and also took photography makeup classes as CEU's( continuing education hours. MAC also will license you as a MUA as well and they are nationwide. Try that,
