With a basic makeup training you can go in many different directions. Do you want to become a makeup artist on a film set? Learning to dress up brides for the big day? Or are you ready to start in the fashion sector? You can also start your own business as an independent makeup artist. The possibilities are endless. Get your diploma and expand your skills to create a nice portfolio.

A good foundation is everything. I notice that students of this school really have an advantage over other makeup artists. They master the techniques and know their profession through and through. I definitely recommend doing an internship during your study. This way you learn to work in a professional environment and you learn to deal with customers or models. A real added value to your CV! - employerSpeaks

It is crucial for makeup artists to always keep up with the latest trends. They are constantly changing, so you have to find the right channels to stay informed and be inspired. Follow some important beauty accounts on Instagram or visit a makeup convention.

More and more cosmetic brands want to contribute to a better and healthier world. They are fully committed to natural and sustainable products and packaging in order to limit the impact on the environment. Some products are even completely "zero waste" and do not leave any (plastic) waste! More attention is also paid to animal suffering. Many makeup products are tested on animals to study side effects, but more and more brands are putting an stop to that and are going the vegan and cruelty free route.

I registered for a basic course, purely out of interest in makeup. The teacher and the motivation of my fellow students immediately made me dream of a career as a makeup artist. It didn't take long before I enrolled in the all-round course and started working on my portfolio. Thanks to the excellent advice from the teachers, I now have my first big assignment! - exStudentSpeaking

  • The very first mascara was made over 4000 years ago. The stuff consisted of honey, carbon and… crocodile droppings!
  • L'Oréal is the largest and best-known makeup brand. The company was founded in 1909 by a French chemist. Originally, L'Oréal only sold hair color rinses.
  • The makeup world also has its own celebs: Bobbi Brown, Pat McGrath, Tom Pecheux and Charlotte Tilbury, among others, have long proven their skills and influence today's MUAs.
  • As a makeup artist you not only take into account the clothes that a model or customer will wear, but you also have to think ahead about the circumstances. After all, you want your work to be fully appreciated. So ask which lighting will be used on the catwalk or during the photo shoot, or check which color the groom's tie is.
