What insurance do make-up artists need?

Public liability insurance for make-up artists

Public liability insurance is often a very important cover for make-up artists, as it can protect you if someone is injured or their property is damaged because of your business. Simply Business offers between £1 million and £5 million in cover, to protect you against this cost.

Make-up artist equipment insurance

As a makeup artist, your tools and equipment are the essential part of your job, along with your expertise and skill. Business equipment insurance covers the cost of repairing or replacing your equipment if it’s damaged or stolen.

Other business insurance for make-up artists

Another important consideration is where you’re based. Whether you work from a studio or at home, our business premises options will help take care of the day to day risks, letting you get on with the job in hand.

Make-up artist insurance policy details

It’s very important to make sure you understand what you need from your insurance. Use the check points below to get you thinking. 

  • Make sure you read your policy documents carefully and that you understand any exclusions that may apply
  • If you rent your property, you may not need to take out buildings insurance. Check with your landlord before buying
  • If you employ people, even in your own home, you’re legally obliged to take out employers’ liability insurance. Not doing this could lead to a heavy fine
