More about makeup artist schools here.
Ontario is one of Canada’s more urbanized provinces. As home to Hollywood North, (Toronto), it’s a great opportunity for a budding theatrical makeup artist. Not only could you find work in Ontario’s award winning salons and beauty schools, but with a little determination, you could be working on Hollywood productions, or in the world of theatre, after only a few months of working.
Ontario has no specific requirements for licensing either as a cosmetologist, or a makeup artist. You can start work as soon as you can find it. You are required to be at least 16 years of age to work in a salon, but to work as a freelance makeup artist, you only need to build up your client base.
Ontario may not have any makeup artist licensing requirements, it is home to some fantastic schools for cosmetology and makeup. Ontario makeup artist programs can include basic day and night or special occasion makeup, like prom and weddings. But they can also include stage makeup, like body makeup and special effects, for film, broadcasting, and theatre. You will also be taught the basics of bacteriology, skin care, hair removal, and even cosmetic treatments like electrolysis and permanent makeup.
