Recognizing Make-Up Artistry as a Legal Trade (MI)

      Livonia, MI


House Bill No. 4574 has recently been re-introduced to the Michigan Senate and we need your signature on this petition!

What is House Bill No. 4574?

This proposed Bill was introduced to amend the current laws about Cosmetologists vs. being a Makeup Artist. House Bill No. 4574 proposes why it is important to separate both fields. As many of you know, you do not need a license to be a Makeup Artist in Michigan. This Bill would open more doors for Makeup Artists to reach their full potential. It will recognize makeup artistry as a legal TRADE and give you the opportunity to become CERTIFIED through the state of Michigan! It will also give you the opportunity to receive FINANCIAL AID through the state of Michigan to pay for your schooling!

For many of you that have been on our prospect student list for several years, this will finally give you the support to start pursuing your DREAMS!

This new Proposed Bill Supports Makeup Artists as Independent Professionals and does not tie them in with Cosmetologists and Estheticians.

How can you help?

Students and Fellow Makeup Artists can help by Writing, Calling OR E-mailing to the following State Rep. Hugh Crawford. He is in charge of this proposed Bill change. You are encouraged to explain why this bill would personally benefit YOU as a makeup artist, someone who loves makeup, or anyone that is in the hair/skin/movie/photography or beauty industry at all.

In addition, we encourage you to read a full version of this Bill by visiting the link below.

We Appreciate your support!

      There have been some questions raised about Bill #4574 that I have proposed and I would like to respond and answer these questions once and for all so that anyone that hasn’t made a decision on this can make an informed decision. There have been people who have publicly stated they are against it, which is their right, but maybe they didn’t have all the facts which may have forced them to jump to conclusions. Here are the answers to the questions in the petition against proposed bill #4574.

    Reasons for signing

    • Regina Porto EAST HAVEN, CT
      • almost 2 years ago

      In the long run the profession would be advanced if recognized as a legal trade.

    • cicely kaiser AUBURN HILLS, MI
      • almost 2 years ago

      Because it's a skill like other jobs, and should be reconized.

    • Terri Sullivan PONTIAC, MI
      • almost 2 years ago

      Make Artistry is its own trade, and should have the recognition it deserves. The Cosmetology and Esthetics programs does not go far in depth on this subject. Both programs just teach the very basics. Which is not enough for those that want to specilize in makeup artistry.

    • Bryan McWethy YPSILANTI, MI
      • about 2 years ago

      My girlfriend primarily works as a make-up artist, and I honestly believe that it takes serious training to embark into this career path, which is exactly what it can be, a career path.
