Our students come from all over the world. Many are attracted to South Florida because of our tropical weather and the latin flair. We like to hear from our graduates and share their stories. Getting a professional makeup job in production (Fashion, Film & TV) is a progression- a gradual advancement. We encourage our students to work hard – no one starts at the top.
In the beginning, some artists work in a retail environment. This allows them to practice what they have learned in school by doing face after face. In their spare time, they start networking with photographers and work in exchange for photos to build their portfolio (an essential tool for interviewing). Some contact established makeup artists and offer to assist. Others are resolute and contact photographers, agencies, film schools, production companies, TV stations, special events coordinators and land jobs that launch their makeup artist careers quickly.
