Other Types of Business Insurance for Makeup Artists

Tools, equipment, and stock are a key part of a makeup artist’s toolkit, so you may want cover to protect them from theft or damage so you don’t lose valuable income while they’re being replaced.

If you employ staff to help with your business, it may be a legal responsibility to provide employers liability cover to protect them and their belongings.

Your working location forms another key element of your insurance policy, whether you’re working from home, using your vehicle to transport you and your equipment from job to job, or working in a salon or beauty parlour.

Makeup Artists Public Liability Insurance

Regardless of your level of skill and expertise, it only takes an accidental mishap, slip or trip and you could be facing a claim for malpractice or negligence. For makeup artists, this could include a client having an allergic reaction to one of your products, somebody tripping over your kit and injuring themselves, spilt makeup causing damage to a client’s carpet, or a slip with the mascara brush resulting in damage to your client’s eye.

Public liability insurance protects you against a claim from a client, supplier or member of the public, making it a vital element of a makeup artist’s insurance requirements. This could cover the compensation payment as well as associated legal fees.
