What Our Students Say

"I've really enjoyed sitting at my computer with my makeup and actually trying to follow along to some of the lessons to achieve those steps on myself. This isn't your run-of-the-mill Youtube tutorial, these are full in-depth educational instructions made quite simple for people like me - who need to learn how to make makeup work for THEM, not follow the steps for someone else's face."

The Complete Course

"The skincare part was very intensive and with a lovely trainer. Very nice course for beginners, and to do paired with a presential make up course. Though the language is more about self makeup I think is great for professional makeup. "

The Complete Course

"I love the short videos. You can do 2/3 video in one day, and the next day if you don’t have time you can only watch 1. It’s also great that we can re-watch every time. Join us! Right now! If you want to learn new things, or refresh everything that you already know. "
