  • I believe in certain states you are able to get just make-up. You can check with your state Board of Cosmetology and get information. It might be easier to just email them, they are good at getting information back. Good luck. :-)

  • Some places offer different things/classes and you dont have to take it all. Call your local cosmetology schools and start asking.

  • I went to school for esthetics. We learned how to give facials, microderm abrasion, chemical peels, etc. Makeup was a big part of it and we didn't spend time learning how to do hair or anything. If you go for cosmetology you'll likely learn how to apply makeup as well, though I've never heard of a school JUST for makeup.

    If you want to go to school for makeup just to get a job doing makeup... realize that you don't need a certificate or degree in ANY state to do makeup applications. So maybe you could just do some online tutoring videos or attend a few professional classes that are open to the public but won't certify you or anything.
