Artists Within Makeup Academy: Makeup courses are not to be confused with Beauty School Online

Makeup school can confusingly fall under beauty school or can be categorized as cosmetology school but what we specialize in is both makeup courses online and at our makeup academy. Our makeup artist courses online are based on our extremely successful Makeup Diploma program. Featuring cutting-edge techniques and the most up-to-date material, receive your certification through one of the top makeup not beauty classes that focuses only on makeup courses online which allow you to work in the makeup industry from cosmetic retailing to runway shows. We have set ourselves apart from other beautician course type academy’s by specializing in makeup courses and also offering online makeup courses with an intensive program involving an interactive setup, videos, tools, quizzes and assignments in an easy-to-learn system that teaches you how to do makeup step by step.

Now, you can start your dream career from the comfort of your own home and at your own pace. Students who complete the program within one year of signing up will receive their designation as a Professional Makeup Artist.
