At TMI, it is our mission to train diversified, high caliber makeup artists.  This is done by teaching and instilling a combination of skill, creativity and discipline needed to succeed as a professional in the industry.


I left the school with my certification, newly acquired industry knowledge, some experience, and a few portfolio images of my work. At this point in my career 2 years later I can officially say I’ve had countless editorials published, worked with celebrities,    headlined art exhibitions, lead makeup artist for fashion and jewelry designers, and now the creative director of Iconic Cosmetics.      ~Rainbow C.


The Makeup Imaginarium offers a one of a kind education that prepares and trains makeup artists for the real world, regardless of their previous experience or the facet of the industry they are going into.  We have altered the model of traditional makeup education, to create a phenomenon that is being recognized worldwide.  We start by setting a solid foundation  by breaking makeup artistry down into its basic components.  Not only do we place strong emphasis on on the correct techniques, we realize that creativity is also important.  TMI keeps their classes small, so that the artists receive one-on-one attention, creating an environment where skills are easily learned and perfected without neglect to the creativity of the individual.  All of these factors come together in a way that you can learn more of what you need in a fraction of the time and at a much more affordable cost to you.

We look forward to helping you step into the world of makeup artistry.  The team at TMI is available to answer any questions that you may have.  Feel free to email us at: TheMakeupImaginarium@Gmail.Com or call us at 559-840-5418,  Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 8am-5pm.  Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you.


This school is truly wonderful.  Every day is a new technique and a new life lesson.  I’ve learned a lot not only as an artist but as a person.    ~Fae Y.


The Makeup Imaginarium was opened in Fresno, California by Jillian Anaya and Rachel Riggs, as a way to train and mentor aspiring makeup artists.  As successful makeup artists themselves, they understand what is needed in order to stand out from the rest, and they don’t hold back in passing that information on to their students. The team at TMI aspires to train student artists with the necessary knowledge and tools to fulfill their dreams.
