THE STORY:

"A lot of people think that once you’ve learned makeup, that’s it - you’re a makeup artist. The actual skill of applying makeup is only 30 percent of the job...nobody teaches you how to create a world-class business. And I think you need both of these skills to succeed."

 - Val Garland

I attended cosmetology school with the soul intent of becoming a professional makeup artist.  With no makeup schools in my small home town, and still a little gun shy to head cross country to attend one, becoming a hair stylist was my first course of action.  Once finishing cosmetology school, I read every makeup book I could and took any makeup class that came my way.  I was a painter at heart, and painting faces was even more gratifiying as this canvas truely came alive with each brush stroke.  

I never was one that wanted to work behind the chair as a stylist or makeup artist in a salon 40 hrs a week, seeing my clients for touch-ups every 6-8 weeks.  I wanted to create art, I wanted to make a statement I wanted to be in Milan, New York, Paris and London.  I wanted my art to be paired with fashion, as it was the fashion of the 1990's, the days when SUPERMODELS ruled not only the magazine covers, but the world  I have paired my art with fashion as best I could in the cities that I have lived in. And it wasn't that I couldn't have moved to any of these larger fashion hubs to persue my dreams, it was that I knew there was still so much for me to learn.   Yes I am a makeup artist that much is true, but.... not all the puzzle peices where in place.  UNTIL now.  With the Val Garland school of makeup a huge piece of the puzzle is before my feet, and there is no way I can take another step unless it is into this course.  This is what I have been waiting for, and I ask you to please help me secure my spot.  


This course is designed for professional make-up artists ready to progress their career to the next level. If you never stop learning, you want to get ahead, and you want access to incredible opportunities whether you live in York or Cape Town, this is the course for you. If you’re just starting out, you can still apply but we will need to see evidence of your talent, commitment and passion.
