Online Make-up Artist 

In partnership with MAC Cosmetics

Manage your time flexibly and pave new paths with ProAcademy's online makeup artist training. As one of the world's leading makeup artist and hair stylist schools, we offer certified makeup artist training in a completely digital format. This means you can learn at your own pace, anywhere and anytime. Whether from the comfort of your home, on vacation, or in between other activities, our training adapts to your lifestyle.

Our learning portal is available 24/7. If you have questions about the learning material or tutorial videos, or if you simply want to engage with your trainers, you can participate in our weekly video conferences.

Your final exam includes an online multiple-choice test and a practical assessment where you send us photos of a makeup look you've created. Additionally, an optional final photoshoot allows you to create professional images for your portfolio, although it is not required to pass the course.

Upon completion, you will receive four globally recognized certificates: "Make-up Artist," "Visagist," "Nude Make-up Artist," and "Lip Artist," setting you on the path to becoming a successful makeup artist.

Join the ProAcademy family. Together, we go further.
