The movie below is a romantic comedy in which the female lead works as
a "mortuary cosmetologist". I have not seen this movie, so I do not
know if it fits the description beyond this simple partial match.

Only the Lonely (1991)

John Candy as Danny Muldoon
Maureen O'Hara as Rose Muldoon
Ally Sheedy as Theresa Luna

[Begin excerpt]
Enter Teresa Luna (Ally Sheedy) a shy mortuary cosmetologist, who
awkwardly steals Dannys' heart.
