Exact requirements vary depending on where you live, but you’ll need to go to cosmotology school .

I started out taking night courses in Makeup Artistry, got my certificate, and then went back for Airbrush. Then I took Hairstyling, which taught a bit of makeup as well.  Really, practice is the key to start a good career in it.  I posted ads everywhere for my business too.
