Becoming a Lipstick Angel is a rewarding experience, which will enable you to contribute your skills and expertise to making a difference in people’s lives. 
Our volunteers are the backbone of the organization, and without their support and commitment, we would not be able to provide services to seriously ill patients and other individuals. Due to the nature of our volunteer work with a diverse population of hospital patients, and other individuals,  the following is required:


  • Must be 21 years of age or older.
  • Must be highly experienced as a professional makeup artist and/or hold an esthetician license.
  • Commit to volunteering for at least one year. Hospital volunteers must volunteer at least twice a month (two three-hour shifts, weekdays only). 
  • Hospital volunteers are required to complete Lipstick Angels’ training, in addition to completing a separate hospital application process and attend a mandatory general orientation.  
  • Hospital volunteers must complete necessary health requirements. Including a tuberculosis screening and flu shot on an annual basis to maintain an active status.
  • Demonstrate the ability to work effectively with, and take direction from, a multi-disciplinary team.
  • Demonstrate a warm and empathetic personality.
  • Possess strong communication skills.
  • Be willing and able to relate to a diverse patient population without bias as to race, color, religion, sexual orientation and/or social status.
  • Be mindful of your position. Do not offer unsolicited advice and NEVER offer any medical advice of any kind to a patient.

“Being a Lipstick Angel has been (by far) the most rewarding thing I have ever done in my life. I’m grateful every day for the beautiful Angels and patients that I’ve connected with through this incredible program.”
