The need for coverage is for both the mobile and the stationary artists who work out of a shop or a parlor. Because this is an art form, most applicators of face paint work alone and the need to cover employees is not necessary.

Types of Insurance

  • General Liability This type of protection provides cover for things that could occur from the services that you provide. It often times will include Premise Liability, which can protect you against costs that are directly related to a client’s injuries should they be hurt while on your site.
  • Professional Liability If one of your clients makes a claim that your services caused them harm or loss, this type of cover will cover the legal costs involved. An example would be if you somehow got makeup on a bridal gown. While you still might be required to pay for any damages, you’re covered on the legal end.
  • Product Liability This insurance will keep you protected should a client have an allergic reaction to any of the products that you use. It will take care of medical bills and legal costs should something go wrong. This is rare but, it can happen even when using the most sensitive and quality products.
