Here’s what you can expect!

Our Full Professional Makeup Artistry Course has been created to teach the everyday aspiring artist the tools and outlook to begin their career as a Makeup Artist. Beginning and maintaining a career in Artistry is challenging.  We offer you the opportunity to become apart of a community of other makeup artists that are not your competition but rather a support system and networking outlet.  You will learn how to see makeup from all perspectives when you take this course. Any actual industry person will tell you that only having a makeup application skill set will not take you all the way.  What it really takes is hard work, practical skill, a network, business knowledge, marketing tools, portfolio building, and the ability to create and learn to think under pressure..  These are the elements that make our course different from all others.

Whether you are a seasoned artist or if you have never picked up a brush before, you will gain a wealth of knowledge through the instruction, demonstrations and hands on application offered at TMI.  Upon completing your course, graduates will receive a certification.
