Makeup Artist Insurance
As a makeup artist, you are both a beauty professional & a therapist.
Makeup artists are one part beauty professional and one part personal therapists. Clients come into your studio expressing how they want to look.
That expectation makes them feel good. And when clients come back to you, again and again, you build a relationship.
The level of trust customers place in their makeup artists is high. They are trusting you to help them look and feel great.
When that trust is broken by a simple mistake or even something that is completely out of your control, a claim against you and your business can result.
When your clients share their dreams and pains, you laugh and cry with them.
You hold the power of helping them feel better about themselves after leaving your chair.
Whether you are a hairstylist, barber, or beautician, the positive change you make for your clients influences the steady growth of the beauty industry.
As the demand for beauty treatments increases, employment for cosmetologists is expected to grow 13 percent through 2022.
Your clients need you to be protected, so you can continue to change their lives beyond the chair.
Why Do Makeup Artists Need Professional Liability Insurance?
Makeup artists are skilled at employing an array of different cosmetic products and tools in order to downplay facial flaws and beautify the contrast between eyes and lips and skin tone. Because this service requires hands-on application, a variety of different liabilities can be more prevalent.
Let’s face it, liability exists everywhere in business. We’ve been in the industry long enough not to be surprised by the many different types of claims we’ve covered for our members. Just by providing your services as a makeup artist, you will, unfortunately, face many different situations that could present an enormous cost if you had to cover them yourself.
Common Circumstances that Need Coverage
Even artists that have many years of experience and have performed countless successful client sessions can still find themselves facing a claim against them at some point in their career. Our comprehensive makeup artist insurance helps cover the costs of these claims as well as provides additional safeguards and a suite of awesome member benefits.
Why Do I Need Cosmetology Insurance?
The chair will mostly be a place of restoration for your clients. With the blending of training and compassion, you use scissors, makeup, and hair products to uplift appearances and confidence.
Unfortunately, no career is perfect, and the same tools you used to help your clients can potentially harm them.
Common Circumstances that Need Coverage
Paying the average cost to defend a slip and fall lawsuit ($25,000 to $50,000) can put your financial stability and career at severe risk.
We want to help you stay protected from these claims so you can continue the work that you do.
Makeup Artist Liability Insurance
Makeup Artists offer multiple services to support their clients, from makeup to skin care.
With Beauty Insurance Plus, the cost of insurance stays the same, regardless of the amount of services you offer.
Makeup Artist Liability Insurance:
Our policies for makeup artists combine the best in comprehensive coverage options all at an affordable rate so our members can focus on providing a great experience for their clients rather than “what-ifs” an unforeseen event could present.
Here’s an overview of several important elements that make up our comprehensive makeup artist insurance program:
General Liability: this important insurance provides members with coverage for claims that are related to a third party injury or third party property damage. This covers claims for bodily injury when someone is injured on your business property or for claims related to damages that your business caused to another entity's property.General liability is most commonly known as “slip and fall” insurance because it covers an injury like someone simply slipping and falling and requiring medical attention. Our program provides up to $2 million per occurrence and a $3 million individual annual aggregate for claims for general liability.
Professional Liability: this type of insurance provides members with coverage for claims for injuries or damage that are related to the service provided. For example, a client may claim that you injured them during your makeup session and hold you responsible for paying for their medical bills. Our makeup artist insurance policies come with $2 million per occurrence and a $3 million individual annual aggregate.
Product Liability: when a client has an allergic reaction to a type of makeup product you use during their session, any claims arising from the event would be covered up to $2 million.
Stolen/Damaged Equipment: makeup is your livelihood. When your products or tools are stolen, Beauty Insurance Plus provides up to $1000 in coverage with a $250 deductible.

Makeup Artist Insurance FAQs
Think of makeup artist insurance as a safety net for your career. While no one likes to think that an unfortunate event could crop up, we help professional makeup artists every day navigate claims that arise from the most every day of circumstances.
Effective makeup artists help clients look and feel their very best by using a variety of tools, chemicals, and different techniques. Doing so puts you in close proximity to sensitive areas around the face, neck, and head. One small slip can result in expensive medical costs to treat an injury, pay for damaged property, or cover other costs like the client’s lost wages. When a client decides to seek legal action against you, legal defense fees will also be necessary. All of a sudden, that small mistake can cost thousands.
At its core, makeup artist insurance from Beauty Insurance Plus provides coverage for general and professional liability, product liability, rental damages, stolen equipment, and even identity theft.
For as low as $11.67 a month, you can have full, complete, and all inclusive makeup insurance coverage through Beauty Insurance Plus. Our insurance for makeup artists was created just for the beauty industry. This means we include smartly-set coverage limits and extended protections beyond general and professional liability coverage to include product liability coverage, stolen equipment coverage, rental damage liability coverage, and even an identity protection plan.
Over and above great insurance coverage, our makeup artist insurance program includes fantastic member benefits worth hundreds of dollars all by themselves. We work extremely hard to keep our program both robust but also affordable for our hardworking professional members.
The best makeup artist insurance plan is one that adequately protects you and your career from the types of risks you face by working as a makeup artist professional. With Beauty Insurance Plus, you get the best return for the investment you make in insuring yourself and your career.
We do this by offering a solid liability insurance plan, include layers of additional protection like an identity protection plan, incorporate a membership benefits program worth hundreds of dollars, and do all of this at some of the best rates in the industry. The best makeup artist insurance plan is one that will protect you and your career, offers you extra benefits you’ll actually use, and is also affordable.
Makeup artist insurance allows you to transfer risk from yourself onto your insurance carrier. With Beauty Insurance Plus, your makeup artist insurance policy provides you with solid coverage within several key areas.
A claim event that occurs during the actual services you are providing would fall under what’s known as professional liability, or malpractice, insurance. An example could be a professional model that has hired you to create the perfect look for their photo session. When the product doesn’t meet their expectations, they may file a claim against you.
Coverage for accidents that occur in or around your premises - called general liability, or slip and fall, insurance, is vital for any professional simply offering services. All it takes for a claim event is a client tripping on the way to your booth and injuring themselves. Costs associated with general and professional liability claims are both covered at $2 million per occurrence and all the way up to $3 million individually as an annual aggregate.
Another vital makeup insurance element is product liability coverage. This coverage kicks in when a client has a bad allergic reaction to a product you used. As a makeup artist, you will use hundreds of different products throughout your career. Just one bad reaction could cost thousands to provide remedy for.
Going further, makeup artist liability insurance from Beauty Insurance Plus also includes safeguards for the everyday such as stolen equipment coverage, rental damage coverage, and even an identity protection plan.

In truth, no, most states have no requirement for you to have insurance before you get licensed to provide makeup services. That being said, choosing to provide services without having insurance is extremely risky. Just like driving a car, the possibility of an accident is always out there.

Considering just how costly a claim event can be, makeup artist insurance is an incredibly cost effective way for you to confidently provide services instead of worrying over a future claim event possibly sidelining your career and putting a big dent in your wallet.
