Makeup Artist Insurance FAQs

What Does Elite Beauty Society Makeup Artist Insurance Cover?

The best makeup artist insurance policies will provide essential coverage for the liabilities that can present themselves in the normal course of business to beauty professionals. General liability, also referred to as slip and fall insurance, covers members from a loss event occurring simply from having a customer enter your premises. As the moniker implies, a simple puddle of water on the floor which causes a client to slip and fall can give rise to a claim. In this case, the member would be covered up to $2 Million per occurrence and $3 Million aggregately per year. Professional Liability claims are also called malpractice claims because they occur while you’re performing your discipline’s service. An example would be if you applied wax that was too hot and a patient were burned as a result. In this case, your professional liability limits would cover the claim up to the same limits as your general liability coverage. EBS also provides product liability coverage, up to $2 Million per occurrence and per year if an equipment malfunction were to cause an injury.

In addition, we’ve included important ancillary coverages like rental damage and stolen equipment. Rental damages cover the expense if there were any damage to a facility that was rented up to $100,000. It’s never fun when equipment goes missing, so we’ve also included $1,000 worth of stolen equipment coverage in our insurance policies.

But we don’t stop there, in addition to the comprehensive coverages listed, members also receive identity theft protection, a free professional website, and access to members-only discounts on top makeup artist gear and accessories. It’s always good to be informed and we invite you to
compare us to the competition. Once you discover how EBS compares you’ll know why we are voted number one for makeup artist insurance.


What Is Professional Liability Insurance For MUA's?

As a makeup artist, you are responsible for the health and welfare of your clients. Your education and experience enables you to offer your clients excellent services. But you have a responsibility to protect your most precious asset—your career. Let’s face it: Accidents happen. But you can be prepared for the unexpected.

Professional Liability Insurance is a form of risk management in which the insured skincare professional can be protected and relieved of the financial responsibility of a potential loss.

What does that mean?
It is designed to protect skincare professionals from claims arising outside of their direct professional skills.

Read more about the type of liability insurance makeup artists actually need.

Do I Need Makeup Artist Liability Insurance If I'm Working Part-Time?

Yes, even for a part-time makeup artist, you will still be performing the same hands-on treatments with a variety of tools and apparatuses that can, unfortunately, give rise to a claim being filed against you. A client’s adverse reaction to a makeup product or a burn from wax that was too hot are both real-life scenarios that have led to actual claims being filed against MUA's. Some states even require makeup artists to carry professional liability insurance in order to obtain and/or renew their licenses. Be sure to check the State Board for your discipline in the state in which you desire to practice before setting up shop.


How Soon After Purchasing Does My Insurance Go Into Affect?

One of the most convenient aspects to Elite Beauty Society’s policies lies in the ability to obtain instant proof of coverage. As soon as you purchase a professional makeup artist liability insurance policy and the system processes the order, you’ll receive an email with proof of coverage, as well as, access to a host of additional member benefits.

What's The Difference Between Makeup Artist & Beautician Insurance?

Makeup artists generally focus their practice on makeup looks and the variety of treatments and regimens associated therein. Comparatively, beauticians, or cosmetologists, tend to focus on hair, nails, and potentially esthetics. However, there are many examples of MUA's that perform certain cosmetology treatments within their practice and vice versa. In fact, some states will allow one license to cover both disciplines, but be sure to check with your State Board for details. Elite Beauty Society’s liability insurance policy covers makeup artists, as well as, more than 350 additional beauty and wellness services, including cosmetology, nail technicians, and even salon business owners insurance.


I'm Still An MUA In Training, Do I Really Need Coverage?

Unless you like gambling with your future, definitely. Even while in training, you’ll have client-facing situations and other circumstances where a claim event could occur. Without insurance, you’ll face having to pay for these claims out of your own pocket. For students who are enrolled in makeup artists courses and are not licensed yet, you may still purchase a comprehensive MUA professional liability insurance policy at an incredible rate of just $25 for a full year of coverage. When you sign up prior to graduating your courses, you receive the full limits of coverage and all of our members-only benefits of the professional program for a full 12 months.

How Much Does Elite Beauty Society Makeup Artist Insurance Cost?

We have several options for makeup artists to choose from so they can find what works best for them and their business. For a one-year policy, the current rate for full-time and part-time skin care professionals is $169, which is good no matter where you practice in the U.S. For a two-year makeup artist insurance policy, the rate is $279.95, a $38.05 savings over buying two, one-year policies. We also offer incredibly affordable MUA student rates—just $25 for a full year of coverage.

In addition to all-inclusive coverage, we also offer a tremendous array of exclusive, members-only benefits. Recently, we’ve also been able to add micro-blading coverage to our insurance plans. This addition is only $499 per year. Read more about how much makeup artist insurance costs as well as the costs of not having insurance.

What Makes Your Makeup Artist Insurance Program Stand Out?

To be worth the investment, makeup artist insurance should be both affordable while also being reliable. Our makeup artist insurance program provides smart, real-world coverage at rates that run around $13 a month. With this program, you get all the way up to $2 million for each occurrence of general or professional liability, as well as $2 million in aggregate for product liability coverage. Members get additional peace of mind for things like stolen equipment, damage to rented property, or even stolen identity. Not stopping there, when you sign up, you get instant access to a free professional website to market your services online and a free subscription to a beauty magazine of your choice. Our program really stands out when we throw in hundreds of dollars worth of discounts and early access deals on products and services from some of the best names in the beauty industry like Paul Mitchell and Redken.

What Type of Insurance Should a Makeup Artist Have?

At a minimum, a makeup artist insurance policy should provide comprehensive coverage for each discipline that you choose to offer to clients. The policy should include provisions for general liability, as well as, professional liability claims. Elite Beauty Society liability insurance coverage provides generous provisions for each of these, all the way up to $2 million per claim and a $3 million annual aggregate. But unlike other skin care insurance providers, we don’t stop with the bare minimum. Elite Beauty Society plans also come with the added protections we’ve learned are vital to an MUA business such as coverage for stolen equipment, rental damage, and even identity theft protection.

Why Do Makeup Artist's Need Insurance?

In any industry, accidents are inevitable and unpredictable. The average claim in the spa industry is $5,500! Without insurance, this cost would come 100% out of your own pocket.

By carrying makeup artist liability insurance, you can transfer the risk of monetary loss to your insurance provider. You no longer have to carry the emotional stress of figuring out how you’re going to pay a claim or defend yourself during the investigation period.

It only takes a single lawsuit or claim to bankrupt you.

You are a skin care professional with specialized training and certification. Though you may not be ultimately responsible for an injury or damages, your role makes you a target. Even baseless claims require you to defend yourself.  Legal defense can be costly.

Do I Need To Be Licensed To Buy Insurance From EBS?

Yes, professional makeup artist liability insurance from Elite Beauty Society requires individuals to be licensed or certified in accordance with any regulations regarding their profession in the states in which they practice.

What Are The Unique Benefits To An Elite Beauty Society Policy?

Elite Beauty Society offers many additional member benefits designed to help you and your business thrive. In addition to a comprehensive professional liability insurance policy, you’ll receive award winning service from our insurance specialists that can help you anytime you need to contact us. You’ll also receive instant coverage the moment you sign up for a policy. Finally, you’ll have access to exclusive, members-only benefits like an identity theft protection plan, stolen equipment coverage, a free professional website, and discounts from some of the top names in makeup products and accessories.

My Policy Has Expired, Am I Still Covered For A Claim?

We want you to have absolute peace of mind and the assurance you’ll be covered no matter what. So unlike other insurance carriers out there, Elite Beauty Society uses occurrence form coverage in our professional liability insurance policies. This means that even if your policy is expired and someone files a claim against you, you’re still covered as long as the claim event occurred during the period when your policy was still in effect.

Do You Offer Makeup Artist Coverage In All 50 States?

Most definitely! Our makeup artist insurance coverage has built-in portability. This means if you change jobs, move states, or change from using a mobile salon to a stationary setting, you don’t have to do anything with us beyond making sure you update your contact information. Have peace of mind and the freedom to provide services wherever it’s advantageous because your makeup artist insurance is still 100% effective in all 50 states throughout your policy’s term.

How Do I Compare Makeup Artist Insurance?

Decisions you make early in your career can have lasting effects so doing a comparison is a great idea. When comparing your options for the best makeup artist insurance, you should compare the coverage breadth and depth.

Breadth in makeup artist insurance means how widespread the coverage applies to events applicable to the industry. Look at the different coverage options included with the policy to determine which applies best to your unique situation.

Depth of the coverage means how much coverage of each option is provided. Solid makeup artist insurance plans will provide at least $2 million per occurrence for general and professional liability claims, as these are the most common types of events for MUA's.
