Another 5 Star Review *****

“I highly recommend Academy of Makeup Artistry (CAMMUA) if you are planning to obtain your certification in makeup artistry. I attended CAMMUA for my certification in makeup and airbrush artistry and couldn’t be happier with the hands-on, professional and knowledgeable education I received. I was not only educated in the application of makeup, but I was taught the vital skills of networking, business, and marketing as it pertains to one’s MUA freelancing career – something not readily taught in many other schools. They really set you up for success with a well-rounded education. As if that wasn’t enough, CAMMUA set me up with a starter makeup kit complete with industry famous makeup brushes, popular makeup products and excellent tools. You could literally start booking clients the next day with the kit you receive. Proper sanitation standards are a vital subject in this course, as well
 as proper organization and presentation of your kit and makeup set-up. The educator, Bianca, is experienced, friendly, knowledgeable, skilled and ensures you receive an exceptional education. Furthermore, if ever you have a question or need to reference information, you’ll always have CAMMUA’s educator to provide guidance- as mentioned above, they really set you up for success. I am so grateful for the education I received and highly recommend this school for anyone interested in starting their makeup artistry career.”

“I absolutely love this school. Bianca was my instructor and she was awesome! She is very intelligent and easy to learn from. I really appreciated that she had us read the information, we discussed it, asked questions, and then she would show us and let us do it. She really covered everyone’s learning style and was really patient when I didn’t just quite it. She would show me another way to see if I understood it then. She is very knowledgable and easy to talk to. I will be visiting every time I’m in town just to say hi!! Gia was very nice and always made a point to say hello. Her line of cosmetics and facial products is incredible! I love using her products. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone who wants to become a makeup artist.”

“I took the one-day eyelash extension course with Bianca. She was very knowledgeable and taught us all that we would need to know to perform eyelash extensions. And she’s only a text away if you have any questions. I’m exited to start my lash career and am very satisfied with the information and training I’ve been provided to do so.”

“First of all, where is the 10 star on here!
I don’t even know where to start I can’t thank Gia enough!  I would take this course over and over it was worth every penny, I highly recommend this course, if you don’t take it you will regret it.  Gia is an incredibly talented instructor, I was taught everything and more than I expected in such a short amount of time, but it’s absolutely perfect! Everything is about this course is amazing, (don’t do this) but I, unfortunately, had to contact Gia after 11 pm a couple of times And she would literally text back in 6 seconds she is all about her students! The kit I received I was speechless! Products we used in class are high quality and she let us use as much as needed! A very very honest and patient instructor, I would redo whatever I had to until it came out perfect. It’s not only a great career even better for personal use.”

Bridal Makeup and Airbrush

When deciding to join the Bridal Industry as a Makeup Artist the question of airbrush always arises. Should you as a Professional Makeup Artist add the skill of airbrush?

Airbrush makeup is a favorite-on the right skin type of course.  Not every style of foundation is flattering or appropriate for every skin type, but airbrush makeup is one of the most flawless looks. For bridal this is a must have as an option. It’s flawless, water resistant and will last all day!

I have tried many types of airbrush makeup and my personal preference is Temptu.  They are innovative and are always looking to improve their formula.  I am 55 years old and their original SB formula is very drying to my skin and I feel like it cracks by the end of the day. The new Hydrolock formula is absolutely amazing and my skin stays glowy and fresh looking throughout the day.

If you’re eager to learn Bridal Airbrush Makeup and get a Temptu Kit included, take our Airbrush Class.  If you are starting from the beginning and need complete makeup training take our Bridal Master Makeup Program which includes a professional makeup kit as well as the Temptu Airbrush kit.
