The owner Gia was also awesome! She really cares about the students that come through her school. She takes calls and texts from me even now since I’ve graduated helping me with questions and giving me advice.
I couldn’t think of any other school I’d have rather gone to. It’s really like a family!

I’m so happy I found Cammua. The instructors are amazing; you truly get hands on experience here. I love that you really feel like they are care about you & your career needs! With small class sizes you don’t get lost in the shuffle and get the one on one attention that’s essential to learning. I’m so happy I made the decision to trust them with my career!
Pamela R. March 31, 2014
Cammua is an awesome school. I learned so much in little time. Amazed!! Bianca and Gia were super teachers and very patient! I would definitely recommend this school to any one interested in a career in makeup! Thank you so much!!
Stacey Falsetta- March 31, 2014
The best decision I ever made for myself ! Cammua is a great school to learn everything you need to know about makeup! And u can retake the classes if you want at no additional charge ! You’ll love the school if you really wanna learn !
Miriam B- March 31, 2014
Coming into CAMMUA I had knowledge of customer day to day makeup. Little did I know there is so many different sides to the cosmetic world! I was fortunate enough to attend this school and I wouldn’t have done it any other way. I have made lifetime friends and not only do you learn about the fundamentals of a working makeup artist you gain the support of the whole CAMMUA team. You learn so much information on color matching and skin compatibility with ease and confidence. By the time your instructor has taught you everything the practicing comes naturally. If you feel like you don’t understand something you are always welcome to come back and retake the course which is rad. The learning to working time could be almost immediate after you get your certificate. I would recommend this school to anyone from learning how to do your own makeup to working in the industry!

I am very thankful to come to CAMMUA. I could not believe how much I learn in details. I learned about makeup world. All the knowledge will help a lot. Bianca is most helpful and patient person to learn from. She is th best. First I decided to take 3 day class but I ended up taking 5 day class because of Bianca. I am glad that I took 5 day class. These 5 days were a blast! Now I am going to have wonderful memories from CAMMUA experience. THANKS TO CAMMUA!
Liza Kazi 6-7-13
Cammua Makeup School has been an outstanding experience. Coming from overseas all the way from Pakistan, this course has been worth it all. Gia and Bianca have been sweethearts. They are professionals, full of knowledge and a lot to learn from. I have not only learned a lot but also had an awesome time here. I plan to start my own makeup business in Pakistan and the techniques I have learnt here will really help in future. Can’t be more satisfied! 🙂
Mahwish Gilani 6-7-13
After researching different makeup schools online I finally decided Cammua. I traveled to Newport Beach from Portland, OR to attend the 7 day program. I was nervous at first but Gia and Bianca made me feel comfortable and welcome. I could not believe how much we learned each day. Gia and Bianca were very informative and were very helpful in answering all of my questions. Attending Cammua was one of the best decisions I have made for myself. I feel comfortable enough to start working right away. On top of all of that I made new lifelong friends. I strongly recommend Cammua.
Ashley Christensen 6-7-13
I enjoy the whole week of classes. The explanation was great, the practice was very helpful. My favorite air brush make up and eyelash extension. I love the fact that we can come back to keep on perfecting our work by retaking the classes. The teachers were super helpful and friendly. Thank you Bianca for the opportunity to learn more and for providing all the tools I need to succeed in this profession. I can’t wait to come back.
Nancy Silva 5-4-13
I loved me experience at Cammua. I came here only knowing bits and pieces about make up and soaking up all of the information that was taught I can finally say I have the confidence that was needed for me to push forward as a makeup artist. I love Cammua and not to mention it is sooooooo affordable! I rate Cammua 5 stars!

Leslie Martinez 4-28-13
I loved the class and learned a lot from it. I thought it was taught really well. I liked how one on one class was. Only thing I’d add is more practice with harder shaped faces or skin tones.
Alyssa Curti 4-21-13
Cammua was a great makeupschool. The teachers were amazing. You really get what you paid for. I loved all the hands on training. I also enjoyed how the classes were short but had a lot of information.
Megan Fleenor 4-20-13
I highly recommend CAMMUA! Marylu is a great instructor and cares about every individual she teaches. The best makeup is used in class for the best examples and practice. CAMMUA uses various makeup techniques so you may find a technique to your liking. We, student, are able to attend classes at any time they are held so we can prepare ourselves for the industry!
Lynthia Laguna 4-15-13
It was great learning from Marylu, the best instructor. Makes you feel super comfortable, very patient. Answers all your questions. Def would love to come back! Very happy!

This is best school ever! They have really good instructors! I learned so much in so little time. Best part is I can come back anytime for free. Also I love the environment and the people who work here. I am so glad I took this course. I recommend this to anyone that wants a serious career in the makeup industry!
Bianca Shanehsaz 4-3-13
This is an awesome class. Learned a lot of basic hair up dos and pony tail and how you can get creative with your own style. Marylou is a great instructor, very nice and patient. I definitely recommend everyone to take this class.
Nyva Ear 3-30-13
The class was a wonderful learning experience. I learned many of the basics as well as the newer trends. The class itself is very well rounded. The instructors make it easy to ask questions and encourage you to learn the best way to get the best look. I highly recommend the makeup and hair class for those that are new to the business or those looking to brush up on new skills.
Frin Biszak 3-30-13
Class was very informative. Very fast paced. Would have liked to learn a little bit more about color wheel for shadows and blushes. Learned a lot though. Thank you so much!
Christine Malta 3-24-13
I had a wonderful experience taking the four day course! Definitely want to add the additional days and complete portfolio portion to start my business! Thank you Gia and all the instructors for all of your help! Thanks again!
April Thomas 3-24-13
CAMMUA has been a great school! I came in knowing nothing about makeup, at the end of the class I knew a lot. I recommend this school to anyone wanting to do makeup. It’s worth the money I paid!
Denise Barela 3-20-13
Marylu is an amazing teacher. Very hands on and very patient with all of us. The class was very relaxed, fun environment and I looked forward to coming everyday. My family was very impressed on how much I learned so quickly. I highly recommend coming to CAMMUA and especially having Marylu as a teacher. I will definitely spread the world about CAMMUA.
Caitlin Hansen 3-18-13
I recently participated in CAMMUA’s 6 Day Working Makeup Artist Program and it was fantastic. During the 6 full days I learned so much. Things I wanted to know, needed to know and didn’t even know I needed to know were taught to me in effective ways. My instructor Marylu was knowledgeable, patient and kind. She demonstrated everything to the class as a whole and took the time to give us each individual attention. I feel very prepared completing this program, to begin a career as a makeup artist. The best, in addition, is that I can always come back to refresh the classes.
Christine Ramirez 3-18-13
To whom in may concern,
My over all experience with CAMMUA 6 days program was absolutely amazing! I honestly learned so many new techniques that I had no idea about. I absolutely adore all the instructors! They are all very honest and helpful with anything and everything! I can’t express enough how happy and satisfied I am with my decision in attending CAMMUA makeup school. I definitely recommend this school to all my girlfriends that are interested in this industry! I can’t wait to begin this new journey that CAMMUA has helped me start. Thank you all so much!
Jannet Zubko 3-10-13
When I began attending CAMMUA I thought I knew everything about makeup and thought I will be bored! Oh boy was I wrong! I was doing everything wrong and when I was wrong it was wrong! I learned a lot from the instructor although I was yelled at couple of times I enjoyed it. I had great classmates and the teachers were the best. I loved the school and learned a lot. I will miss everyone. CAMMUA has been the best school and hope to be back for other classes!
Maribel Servellon 2-23-13
I enjoyed this class and all the inspiration to continue in my journey to makeup professional.
Linda Thompson 2-15-13
CAMMUA definitely taught me what I was missing all this time. I can finally fully put my looks together using the correct sematics and techniques. I definitely got my money’s worth with this class and I hope I can come back to finish the rest of the class. I would recommend it to anyone.
Jasmine Barnes 2-10-13
My goal was to find a great quality makeup school at a cost I could afford while also not missing too much work. My week at CAMMUA was so valuable and enjoyable, I learned so much in such a short span of time. If you’re looking to do makeup as a career, don’t rely on Youtube! CAMMUA teaches easy to learn techniques while working on other people. The teachers are awesome! Honest, down to earth, no B.S. I am so glad I chose CAMMUA, totally worth every penny!
Aurora Boxwell 2-9-13
I love Bianca and Mary Lou – together they have taught me how to properly do make up and hair. CAMMUA is a great school to go to due to its flexibility and intense training to become your own business. You truly get what you put it so of this is your passion you’ll do well. I am glad to now be a graduate joining the CAMMUA team 🙂
Hollie “Berry” Nguyen 2-9-13
This school has been awesome! I have learned so many techniques and so many different looks. I am extremely excited to put all my learning to work. Mary Lou and Bianca are wonderful teachers too. They both give you a lot of one-on-one attention and guide you through each step. They’re not afraid to tell you if you’re doing something wrong and always give you positive feedback if you’ve done a good job! At first I was nervous but after the first hour I felt great! Would definitely recommend!
Laura Schultz 2-9-13
Now that I have completed CAMMUA make up program I can turn my make up hobby into a lucrative profession. My experience at this school is priceless. Thanks to the whole CAMMUA family!
Nichelle Luarca 1-23-13
I had a fabulous experience! Great class and teachers make it easy to learn. I look forward to visiting and getting into the field!
Chelsea Ellison 1-22-13
I can’t even begin to say how much I loved the class! I feel like I have all the tools now to begin my new career in make up, of course with lots of practice first! I really wanted to come and gain some confidence to feel comfortable with clients and I have totally got that! It’s crazy to actually see in person how much knowledge the instructor has with every single product out there. Her teaching is awesome! Loved Marylou and CJ! This was a great decision to come and enjoyed every second of it!
Jessica Brewer 1-17-13
Working with the instructor was amazing and educational! I felt right at home and not all nervous. It was a lot of useful information that I didn’t realize I didn’t know about. I feel very comfortable in coming back to extend my education in other areas. The great thing about this is we can always come back to retake the same course if needed. I’m definitely going to be recommending other friends. The products they use are amazing and quality name brands. Go CAMMUA!
Amy Dang 1-13-13
I feel this class taught me a bunch about make up application that I did not know (that I thought maybe I did know). I loved learning about foundation, mixing colors and learning the color wheel. This class allows you to practice on others. You get to experience different facial features which is a plus if you have no one at home to practice on. The instructor is stern but precise and the class has all the necessities to practice/learn the basics and more. I must practice and practice to gain perfection. Thanks CAMMUA make up school!
Yvonne Palomino 1-13-13
I felt like the two day classes were great. We covered good amount in fourteen hours. I look forward to coming back and recommending friends.
Riley Beutier 1-13-13
Cammua is a great makeup school. I learned so much from the instructor, and she will help you out in every step of the way. She will answer all of your questions and will always be there if you need help. Thank you!
Hanh T. 8-29-12
Cammua was a great experience. I’ve always worn makeup but never did I know the technique that I learned here. The girls I worked with were great, and I feel privileged to have been taught by the best instructors!
Esmeralda H. 8-29-12
Thank you very much for the opportunity to improve my skills. Your class was wonderful and I cannot wait to practice all that I have learned!
Jennifer D. 8-21-12
Attending Cammua has been a very positive experience for me. Leah is a patient and caring instructor. She walked me through the class and made sure I had each lesson down before I finished the course. Makeup is a second act for me after working in civil service and private industry for over 30 years. I thought the photo shoot would be intimidating but Gia and Joe made me feel completely comfortable and the shoot turned out better than expected. They also provided a wonderful model. I would recommend Cammua to anyone considering makeup as a career.
Tanya R. 8-11-12
I am very happy with Cammua and the whole program. When I first was introduced to the school and the experience was very pleasant, then I got to take the 6 day course which helped me learn the foundation of makeup and hair. Bianca, my instructor for the hair and makeup program was very nice and knowledgeable about what she was teaching. I had a great experience here and I will definitely refer my friends and anyone I know want to learn makeup and hair to Cammua. Thank you!
Zhasmena Z. 7-27-12
I had a fantastic time! Bianca and Alex were SO informative! It was a lot of info to take in, so I may retake the class on a future date to make sure I didn’t forget anything! The business portion of the course was priceless info that I had been dying to learn! Thank you so much for everything that was taught in the course! 5 stars!
Kat M. 7-27-12
I loved the classes, very informative and very easy to understand. The instructors were very nice and went into detail on everything that was covered in class. The makeup kit is great and has everything I need to get started. Bianca answered every question I already had and gave me more information on the questions I asked.
Amber F. 7-27-12
I knew nothing about makeup artistry or hairstyling before attending Cammua. I learned many techniques and styles. The best part for me personally is having the opportunity to come back and refresh my new skills….for free! Being able to retake classes allows me to perfect my skills and build confidence in my abilities
Shay S. 7-22-12
All the classes I have taken at Cammua have been so helpful. Marylou is a fantastic teacher! She is so knowledgeable and she is always available to help you, even after class is over. The hair class I completed today with Bianca was awesome! I was so “hair challenged” but now I feel confident enough to keep practicing. I have taken several classes through Cammua and they have all been wonderful! I will keep coming back to Cammua!
Jamie C. 7-22-12
Great School! I learned so much in just five days. I would totally refer Cammua to anyone who is interested in doing makeup artistry. All the instructors are so helpful and friendly. I feel very lucky to have attended Cammua.
Jillian S. 7-22-12
I have been looking at makeup schools for a while. I have been doing hair/makeup for friends and family events for 7 years …for FREE! Yes, free! Simply because I was not confident enough In myself to charge. I found this program by accident but am happy I did. The schedule and locations are super flexible. You can take whatever courses you feel you need and if you feel you need more practice in something you can go back and retake the class for free. Joe and Gia were both super awesome on the phone and in our first meeting. My instructor Bianca was super knowledgeable and always willing to answer questions answer questions and even move a little bit off topic to discuss different techniques and styles. Bianca and I spent three weekends together. She’s awesome, I’m sad that I won’t see her for awhile! I was doubtful at first but my doubts have been erased! Definitely check this place out!
Victoria P. 7-22-12
The class was amazing! I was taught something new every day and I loved it. I will definitely be back and I recommend this class to anyone who wants to pursue a career in makeup artistry! Take this class!
Brianna P. 7-13-12
I spent a great time learning different techniques in doing makeup. I met a great friendly staff and I really love to work with them!
Ahlam A. 7-13-12 Bahrain- Saudi Arabia
This was by far the best experience. I have learned far more than I imagined! There is no way I could have done it without Cammua teachers, they are not your typical instructors and are so down to earth. Their passion shows in class and motivates me. I can’t say thank you enough. I appreciated everything. I will always recommend this school. Thank you!
Casandra T. 7-13-12
I absolutely loved the airbrush class-Fx class ! I learned so much, including tips and tricks. The class offered tons of information and techniques. I would definitely take another class with Cammua and recommend it to makeup artists of all levels!
Brittany B. 3-12-12
Cammua was definitely a learning experience. Whether you know a little or a lot this Academy gives you the tools you”ll need to become an artist. Not only your instructor but your class mates will help you along your way. Cammua can fit any budget to prepare you for your future career!
Marissa J. 4-11-12

Jenny G. 3-31-12
After searching and searching school after school Im glad I made the right choice by attending Cammua. Seriously the best investment Ive made. You learn so much and are hands on which I love. Bianca is the best teacher ever, She will teach you what you need to know about the industry and make sure you are ready to begin your career and put yourself out there with confidence. And Joe is just the nicest along with Gia. Just the nicest people. I walked into cammua to learn and nothing more and in return I learned more than what I expected and got to know 3 of the greatest people I know and now consider family. Thanks Bianca, Gia and Joe !
I took the two day course and was totally impressed by the various techniques we learned in such a small period of time. Bianca was very thorough and explained everything and went into tons of detail for every step. I learned so many things and cant wait to use everything I have learned on my clients.
Nancy Z. 3-31-12
I liked that it was a small group and I loved that as soon as we learned something new we immediately practiced it. This is a super hands on experience. It is fast paced but makes sense . Marylou is super honest so if you do a bad job she will let you know. And will tell you how to fix it. And if you do a great job, she lets you know that to. You will not just learn how to do great makeup you will also learn how to start your career as a makeup artist. Great atmosphere .
This class was amazing I learned a lot from the instructor. Marylou is a great teacher. And I will send any of my friends to the school anytime. 100 % Satisfied.
Connie I. 3-31-12
It was a wonderful experience here at Cammua Makeup Academy I love the staff. I learned a lot and they always answer my questions.
Nina P. 3-31-13
I really loved the 5 day class I took. The people are very nice and the classes are very flexible also, it was extremely fun! I learned so much in such a short time. The fact that it was a short time also meant that you can get a career or work started fast. I would definitely recommend this school to other people. Thank you Cammua.
Aleena S. 3-27-12
I learned a lot coming to Cammua makeup academy. I wanted to learn more. I loved my class mates and teacher. Great experience and learning experience.
Gwendy M. 3-12-12
My experience at cammua Academy was great. I met wonderful friends and our instructor was awesome. Im really going to miss them. When I first started I didn’t know much stuff about applying makeup on customers but going to school at Cammua made me know the smallest details. It was a great experience.
Carmina G. 3-12-12
The whole 10 weeks were AWESOME! I’ve learned so much from Bianca she is a great instructor!!! Thanks so much for everything.
Sylvia R. 3-12-12
First I would like to express how happy Iam that I attended Cammua. It is everything in a makeup school I was looking for. It is mostly hands on with some lecture to really explain and understand the application of makeup, which is how I learn best. Bianca is a phenomenal instructor. She is caring about her students and as well helpful. She really wants her students to do well. I appreciate her and her knowledge as my instructor. Cammua is beyond a great makeup school. I felt as if I were part of a family and I know if I ever have any questions or concerns in the future I know tte staff will be there to help and advise me. As well as graduated students. I would also like to add the classes really emphasize on cleanliness which is a huge plus. I would definitely recommend to come to cammua.
Laura H. 3-12-12
I just wanted to thank Gia, Bianca and Joe for this 10 weeks of education. I learned so much and had a great time with all of my classmates. Thank you Bianca for being such a great instructor and being able to take our classes when needed. The hard work you guys do is awesome I would definitely refer people to Cammua.
Judith G. 3-12-12
Cammua gave me the confidence and skills to do makeup on someone other than myself. I love it that I can come back free anytime and brush up on my skills. Thanks Gia and Joe
Melonie S. 3-12-12
I had the best experience at CAMMUA from day 1 all the way to my last day. Marylou is amazing, her techniques are very easy to learn in a fast/short period of time. I learned so much in a 3 day period. I looked around for a long time looking for sessions that only focused on makeup and I have to say CAMMUA was the best choice. I truly recommend this school for any aspiring makeup artist.
Rosemary Serrano 2-11-2012
I liked that is was a small group and I loved that as soon as we learned something new we immediately practiced it. This is a super hands on experience. It’s fast paced but it makes sense. is super honest so if you do a bad job she will let you know and will tell you how to fix it, and if you do a great job she will tell you too. You won’t just learn how to do a great make up but you will also learn how to start your career as a makeup artist. It is a great atmosphere and I felt welcomed.
Gia is a talented and experienced make up artist, an excellent teacher and a strong and passionate women who inspires her students. Taking this course with Gia makes you feel confident that you’re with someone that truly knows the business. She trains you to be a skilled make up artist, and a successful professional.
Arlene Torejjes, South Panam, 7-11-2011
This class was exactly what I was expecting and more. I never knew how the highlight or contour. And didn’t know how you could use foundation. Gia is a very good instructor and knows what she is talking about. I can actually fill like I am prospered to go onto a set and work.
Anna Manriquez Lindsay, CA July 10, 2011
I loved the class. I learned things I never knew. Gia is an awesome teacher she makes sure we do things right and is always here to answer our questions.

Stefanie Courteau Anaheim, CA July 1, 2011
I really enjoyed the fast pace of the class. Because it was real plus what you always go to in real work. The kits were amazing and all will last me for a while. Gia is amazing and help me with anything I needed. Joe is also great and knows how to have good conversation with. In all the experience from this class will reflect on all my work in the future. Thank you for everything guys.
Michael Cypher Anaheim, CA July 1, 2011
Very welcoming, I can tell they want every student to succeed in the area they want to be in. I feel that I learned tons in the short amount of time. Joe and Gia are great!
Roland Rayes Whittier, CA July 1, 2011
Cammua make up school was probably the best decision I’ve made. Bianca was great, taught us all the basics needed to go big with make up looks. She also pushes you until you get it right. It was a great experience and also a great feeling walking out with the knowledge of everything I learned and knowing I can always go back to get help with anything I need is great.
Guadalupe Ventura Elk Grove, CA July 1, 2011
Cammua taught me so much and made me feel very confident. I feel like I am off to a great start in the field of beauty due to this class! Gia is a great teacher.
Michelle Schindler Newport Beach, CA June 28, 2011
I loved it! Well worth it! They are big on details and care a lot about what you learn. They even picked us up from our hotel!
Michelle Sanders Wichita, KS June 23, 2011
I took the 4 day make up/ hair class at Cammua and I really enjoyed it. Every day is fun, yet different. They really explain everything well and make sure you understand it. I enjoyed myself each day!
Hayley Sanders Wichita, KS June 23, 2011
Professional, Friendly and high quality make up kit. I will be back for more classes.
Maria Nery San Luis, AZ June 23, 2011
Cammua was great. My week at school has prepared me for the next step in my career! The make up kit has everything you need to get started the day after you finish your course. Gia is great. She really pushes you.
Holly Jones Grangeville, Idaho June 24, 2011
Cammua is a great make up school. I feel more confident as a make up artist now that I have graduated from Cammua. Thank you Gia, Joe, Sergio, and Janet
Tiffany Do Garden Grove, CA June 24, 2011
I really liked CAMMUA because:
-Gia knows her stuff and has great teaching skills
-Their make up kit rocks!
-Their school setting is professional!
-They (Gia and Joe) actually answer their phones! Other schools don’t even care about students enough to answer the phones. They care about their students and business.
-It’s like one big happy family!
-You can re-take any class you feel you need to touch up on
-Prices are great and includes a lot! Comparing all the other schools I toured, everything was separate. Such as: hair course, airbrush course, kit, professional photo shoot. Here, I got a great deal where everything is included and tailored to fit my needs.
-Finally I feel like Cammua/Gia actually “cares” and takes an interest to personally help me succeed.
Nancy Urbina June 24,2011
I want to start by saying Thank you to Gia. You are a great caring person/teacher. I learned so much in your class. Cammua school is Excellent! Gia you are the best… I love make up more than ever now, and I thought I already did!!!! I look forward in the future and I hope I get to work with you !
Norma Torres Pico Rivera, CA June 26, 2011
I took a 2 days class and I learned so much at Cammua school, but more so from Gia. My experience has been wonderful. I would recommend Cammua to anyone that is serious in the make up industry. I now leave with confident and ready to add on make up service to my salon. Thank you Cammua and Gia.
Chuc-Trinh Ngoyen San Bernadino, CA June 7, 2011
Thank you Cammua! Loved the teachers Gia and Sergio, they are awesome and very funny! I love the fact that it’s a fast class with everything you need, leaving out all the “mumbo jumbo” other places fill their classes with! It’s also nice to know that you can come back anytime you want for advice, questions and/or to go over the class again. Who else offers that, without charging extra?
Aola PascuzzsCovina, CA June 9, 2011
Cammua makeup school was more than I ever imagined. The skilled and expertise that Gia brings to the class is inspiring, motivating and professional. The make up forever kits have set a solid foundation for me to put my new knowledge to practice. I came here with little experience and am leaving with confidence and a desire to push myself with makeup artistry. Gia is a wonderful teacher who has no problem with telling you when a technique is wrongfully used/applied but pushes you at the same time to strive for perfection professionalism and etiquette. Joe does a wonderful job at keeping us updated with Cammua social media which helps me feel connected to the wonderful school and team at all times and forever. Thank you Sergio for helping me believe I can pursue hair alongside make up. Thank you most of all Gia for your time, commitment, and energy. This course was great because of you. Good luck with everything in the future. This is just the beginning. You rock!
Pooja Ghosh June 18, 2011
I felt comfortable in this class. Gia and all the girls in class were awesome. I like how Gia teaches. It scare me to mess up, but that’s the only way I will learn. The way Gia teaches just makes you want to learn, step by step. I really loved this class, and I’m glad I choose Cammua.

When I put my info in on the website on a Friday night I didn’t expect to get a response right away, but I did. I even scheduled a tour the following Tuesday with Joe. Joe was very helpful and informative and made me feel comfortable in my decision to take a make up course at Cammua. Classes with Gia was beyond my expectations. I learned so much and was surprised at how much can be taught in such little time. I would definitely and already haverecommended this school to my friends and family. Sergio classes helped me understand hair. I will take the lessons learned to help me with my futurecareer. All in all, I love the fact that Gia, Joe, and Sergio are all there for you when need the help. Even after you completed the course.

Gia is an amazing artist. I took the 7 day course and it was so wonderful. She taught us techniques that I never know existed. The classes were so much fun as well as knowledgeable. Joe was also amazing and always took great pictures of us working. He was the one I talked to and he was super nice showing me the make up kit and explain everything to me. The classes were full of information, but Gia made everything so easy for us to process. The kit is spectacular!!! All professional products. Gia is a great mentor and friend. She always made me feel wonderful and gave us advice to better our work. Sergio was also great, he was so friendly and professional. He taught us awesome tricks to do on hair that looks great. Everyone at Cammua was super amazing! I recommend it to anyone and everyone. Im glad I took this and now I have confidence to go out and make things happen! Hank you CAMMUA!

Cammua is the best school! Gia is an amazing teacher and down to earth. The classes are small and the class environment is friendly. I’m glad that I found Cammua. Joe was so helpful and friendly. I would recommend this school to anyone who wants to become a make up artist. You won’t regret spending your money at Cammua.

Coming into Cammua, I was nervous about my little experience with make up and wasn’t sure if I could succeed in mastering the concepts. From the start, Gia’s vibe alone put my worries at ease. Not only is she an amazing make up artist but an amazing teacher and mentor, which is crucial. Gia allows you to be comfortable in exploring your talents and is patient with everyone. What I loved was her constant reassurance that all her students will walk out as confident make up artists which is so true! Seriously, anyone who has the opportunity to work with Gia needs to take advantage ASAP! She will push you to bring out all the skills you never knew you had! Amazing artist, teacher, mentor, and friend! Sergio also teaches hair and is extremely skilled! You will learn so many techniques and hair secrets, definitely worth the time and money! Love you Gia, Joe and Sergio.
I always knew I wanted to become a professional makeup artist but didn’t quite know how to get there. Gia helped me refine my existing skill set as well as uncover talents I didn’t know I had. Her tricks of the trade are priceless and I will carry what I learned at Cammua with me for the rest of my professional career. I believe that the small class size and personal attention offered by Gia herself are what makes Cammua the perfect makeup academy.
At Cammua I was able to learn makeup, Hairstyle, and airbrush techniques in 4 days. I was given a certificate that specifically states all the skills I learned. The class environment is friendly and very comfortable and yet compacted with so much information. Iam very glad I made the choice to come and learn at Cammua. Gia and Sergio are awesome teachers!

Gia is an awesome and genuine teacher and makeup artist. She is down to earth and straight forward in her teaching, and definitely knows her stuff! Learning airbrush makeup was the best part and the most fun, and after the course was completed, I felt so completely confident in going out and truly starting my career as a makeup artist. You wont regret spending your money at Cammua!

Cammua made Makeup Artistry a true experience. Gia and Sergio are true professionals in their field. I would recommend this school to anyone who is interested in learning makeup artistry

I took the 2 day weekend course in Newport Beach. Class was great! Gia the instructor, was very informative and honest. You will learn good tips and achieve flawless foundation application and countless other things that will serve you well when you go to work in the makeup industry. The class size was small (8 students) which meant you got a lot of attention from Gia and got all your questions answered. I highly recommend this school !
Thanks Gia, Vicky M.

The only thing I wish is that I had more time to practice under supervision. But over all I got enough info and even more with the book that I was given (that Gia wrote) If I don’t feel confident in the field, I do feel confident that I can contact Gia and get any questions answered or help. I will return for the rest of the course, I would like!

I had first considered taking a Marienello course but when I checked out Gia’s portfolio (www.giadeomua.com) and the quality of work and the amount of experience I chose to attend Cammua! It was the best choice I have ever made, I felt so comfortable while taking the classes, the lessons that were taught were fun and technique emphasized… Thank you Gia & Staff.

Gia was very professional and kept the class on track with the prescribed agenda. She was excellent at gauging the students experience level and talents, and tailored the instruction for each student. Having no makeup back ground at all, I was very intimidated and overwhelmed, but I was never left behind. Gia is extremely knowledgable and very open and accessable to questions. It was an excellent experience and I now feel confident and prepared for doing Media Makeup on my own. Another plus when comparing the Cammua class to other classes is that I was not required to provide my own model for the class.

Thank you so much Gia! Wow, I’am so happy that I found you for so many reasons. I really enjoyed taking your class. You explained things very clear for me to understand. I love that you made it so easy step by step. You took your time with me till I understood. But most of all you are a very caring person with a special talent for teaching. Your work is beautiful. Thank you again so much. For anyone who is looking, take this course, you will be so happy with Gia.

I can not give enough praise to Gia! Gia is an amazing teacher. You will learn so much at Cammua. Everyday you will learn the tips, tricks, and techniques you will need to succeed as a makeup artist. I researched many schools before I chose Cammua, and this school by far exceeded all my expectations. The kit you receive includes industry standard. Products such as Make Up For Ever & Temptu. Other schools I researched did not. Gia will make sure that you have the techniques down before you complete your program. You will leave your program ready to work as a qualified makeup artist.

Gia is caring like a mother, funny like a comedian, strict like a drill sergeant. All around amazing instructor. If you think you know makeup chances are you don’t. Go to Gia and she will teach you what you need to know. Sergio with what little time I had with him, he was amazing. Strict but non judgemental. I messed up a lot during his class but each time I messed up he didn’t mind. His patience is a virtue and a gift.
I had such a great time and an awesome experience with Gia. She is an amazing teacher with a lot of experience, I know. I can call her any time and she is going to be willing to help. Not only did I learn techniques but I feel like i also gained some friendships. Sergio was just as amazing , I love doing different hair styles. If you are thinking about going to makeup school I would definitely go to CAMMUA.
“Studying at CAMMUA with Janet Pippins was the best experience I could have asked for. As a beginner, I doubted if I had potential as an artist but by the end, I felt confident and comfortable applying makeup. Janet has created a great atmosphere for students to grow and even though she is the teacher, and an excellent one at that, her down to earth and kind personality make you feel like a close friend and you feel safe asking questions and you always know that you have support. Aside from these reasons to choose CAMMUA Encinitas, both the location and studio are inviting, clean and safe. ”
I cannot thank Janet Pippins enough for guiding me into the right direction. She has taught me so much about makeup artistry and airbrushing. I vow one day I’m going to make her proud. She’s an excellent instructor very professional, attentive, and witty. I enjoyed being in her class and will miss her dearly.
Hands on with Actual Teachers!!!
I absolutely loved CAMMUA makeup school. I learned so much and it was in a fun and laid back environment. Gia and Janet are great teachers with lots of experience and were really there to answer any questions I had about the industry. Besides the great teaching the kits are amazing! I received so much more high quality makeup than I ever expected. Cammua is a fun, fast paced, interactive school that teaches you great make up techniques. Gia is a wonderful teacher who tells it like it is. What makes this school stand out from the others is the small class size and the consistent hands on practice. These were two very important aspects I considered when choosing a school. Gia’s interaction with her students really allows you to improve and progress as an artist. I especially loved how we learned make up styles through the decades and bollywood, so fun! Awesome kit, awesome teacher, I highly recommend this school!
I have been styling girls since I could walk, so I was pretty set in my ways…until I was referred to Cammua by a dear friend in the industry who had graduated from there and loved the programs! I decided to take an Airbrush course and update my Makeup Skills to include High definition Makeup. I attended Cammua, and under Gia’s supervision was very pleased to find that I learned many new tricks and application methods as well as learned how to perfect my traditional working methods with the applications I had been using, including utilizing different brushes, and applicators, re-positioning my hands to get certain blending options I had not before been able to cleanly do, etc. Class was fun, the supplies were top notch (not cheap brushes and cakey old makeup but fresh new supplies given upon enrollment), and an abundance of school supplies were also on hand to use, that we did not purchase…not to mention all the Marketing tips and guidance I received! The Airbrush course in particular has opened up a whole new area for me to profit with. Now more than half my business revolves around the Airbrush Makeup/supplies I learned to apply and received from Cammua! It was a great experience and I would highly recommend Cammua to anyone from a novice to a ‘Pro’.

I have always been fascinated with makeup ever since I can remember. I would try to hang out with my model friends to see how these talented makeup artist work, because I was so intrigue by their work. I was determined to go back to school and be a makeup artist. What I like about CAMMUA is the attentiveness and involvement of the instructor…our instructor was very thorough in her teaching and was very patient with us. With the class, we got a makeup kit with all the professional brushes and makeup pallettes. After graduation, I applied for my MACPRO membership and now I have 40% off all MAC products and master classes. A week before I graduated, I was already setting up my website and printing out my business card. I just graduated less than 3 months, and I already have a team of makeup artists and hair stylists working for me. I have bookings up to next summer, and I am involved in all the bridal shows in Southern California. If you want to be your own boss, making great money, makeup artistry is a great career for you. Thank you, CAMMUA!
