The Craft behind Makeup School

By: Annelise Vintila

Make up with cosmetic and lashes.

I remember getting my first makeup set for Christmas when I was 10 years old and being so excited to learn how to use it. There were shades of all different colours, ranging from ice white to charcoal black to aqua blue and everything in between. I was curious and adventurous in experimenting with them, and 16 years later, have the same enthusiasm. For the record, I am horrible at makeup: my daily routine consists of moisturizer, concealer and maybe a little mascara. A green jealous monster appears on my shoulder every time I see a younger person with immaculate full face of makeup and wonder if I stuck with my Christmas beauty pallet when I was 10 I would have achieved the same level of expertise. It can be overwhelming to immerse yourself in the makeup industry, but it can be a lot easier if you know where to start.

Makeup Artist Diploma

If anyone has a passion for makeup and aesthetics, there are so many courses to enroll yourself in, including courses at so you can achieve your makeup artist diploma. A lot of people that I have met believe that learning the art of makeup is trivial, only skin-deep that doesn’t require much thought. To truly be amazing at makeup, you have to take in consideration a number of factors like the lightning of the room, a person’s face shape, how a person’s self-outlook can be reinvented with makeup and the education that must be studied to be a great artist. Students enrolled in the program will have a chance to have a Sephora internship and have a MAC Pro card to further develop their craft.

It takes a great deal of skill and hard work to become a makeup artist

I Want to get Better!

The word ‘makeup’ acts like a blanket covering thousands of branches within it, including runway, bridal, natural, theatre, movie and cinema, and every-day. The art of makeup requires a load of discipline, patience and passion, and there is no better teacher than an instructor that truly believes and continues to grow with the craft. The makeup classes can improve and empower a student’s ability to create a look that’s truly authentic to what they love. Makeup artists need to be friendly and sociable, and the International Beauty Institute even conducts mock interviews so everyone can feel comfortable and prepared.

The right school can help you step into your career with confidence

The makeup industry has grown drastically over the last decade, and millions began creating their own Youtube channels. Most of them have a similar approach; they advertise the product they will use and teach the viewer step by step on how to achieve the look. Although helpful, the videos are not personal; everyone has different approaches to learning. The makeup school embraces their students, each with individual attention and consideration. Whether you are starting with the knowledge of a 10-year-old enthusiast with a colourful face pallet or an experienced comprehension of the makeup craft, will be able to help anyone achieve their goal of improving their skill.
