I am a Graduate of the Makeup Artist Diploma program. As a student I really learned a lot from the 3 month long program. The program was very informative and provided a large amount of information at a steady pace. The Instructors are caring and inspirational people to work with. They really care about helping you learn and will put in their all to help students become successful Makeup Artists. I very much enjoyed attending this College because of the amazing Instructors and staff. I would recommend anyone who is looking for a great experience to attend a program there.

I was able to successfully receive many interviews for jobs as a Makeup Artist and was employed within a month of graduating from the program. Thank you teaching me how to interact with clients, as well as business skills such as creating appealing business cards. Thank you for everything.
