Professional Beauty makeup


36 HOURS, $2,100

Our Professional Beauty Makeup program is for individuals with little to no experience or previous learning in the field of makeup application. The goal of the program is to lay a solid foundation in beauty makeup application, which applies to a range of areas, including retail, private client and special events. This program is conducted over a period of three weeks, three days per week (Monday - Wednesday), from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. In addition to covering all aspects of beauty makeup application to the face, topics will include:

  • Sanitation and hygiene

  • Color theory and corrective makeup

  • Ergonomics and lighting

  • Kit building and product sourcing

  • Meeting client needs and expectations

Students will be applying makeup beginning on the very first day, working at a makeup station fully stocked with all the tools and products necessary for a successful application. Each student will receive a set of Paint School makeup brushes to keep and use throughout the program.

At the Paint School photo booth, students will be able to photograph their work and share with friends, family and colleagues. On the final day of the program, each student will work with a model provided by the school, and the finished look will be captured by a professional photographer for use in the student’s portfolio.

Upon successful completion of the Professional Beauty Makeup program, each student will receive a Certificate of Completion. One outstanding student will receive a Certificate of Merit and will have their name and web/social links listed on the Paint School of Makeup Honor Roll.

The Paint School registrar maintains a list of resources for nearby overnight accommodations and transportation for out-of-town students.
