Whether you’re attending an important event or simply looking for a better way to apply a flawless application, there’s no doubt that a professional makeup artist knows all the tips and tricks to help you look your best.

While handing over the reins to your makeup artist may make you feel like you’re losing control, we give you the top reasons to put all of your trust in them:

  1. You will be camera-ready

  2. Makeup artists make your life easier

  3. Artists are confident with experience in the industry

  4. Makeup artists know what works and what doesn’t

You’ll be picture-perfect all day

While putting on makeup is always a lot of fun, it takes a skilled eye to see the beauty and potential in each face. Your makeup artist is also skilled in making you feel at ease during the application process. Not only will you look amazing, but your makeup will last all day. Professional makeup artists use high-quality makeup products than the average makeup lover, and test the quality of cosmetics everyday.

Artists undergo years of professional training to keep up with the trends and techniques. Because they are certified through certain programs or classes, your makeup artist is knowledgeable and has the expertise to capture your beauty. It is without a doubt that they

Leave it up to the artist

Taking part in any event can cause you to become stressed. In any case, trusting your makeup artist completely lets you worry about one less thing. Having a professionally created and applied look that highlights your natural beauty cuts down on any stress that you may be feeling.  

Photography makeup is also different from your everyday makeup. A professional knows how to perfectly apply it so you look dazzling and photogenic in front of the camera. Your pictures will come out amazing, so you won’t have to worry!

Makeup artists are aware of techniques and theories

Given that your makeup artist has gone to makeup school, they won’t graduate without the knowledge of all the explanations behind every swipe and color of makeup. This being said, they have an eye for what goes well with your skin tone, face shape, and facial features as a whole.

There are times when we see pretty pictures online with all the dazzling makeup but we tend to forget that all faces are different just like fingerprints! There are chances that makeup looks may or may not work on you, depending on your features. So in occasions that you want a certain look, a makeup artist can already tell whether it will be good on you or not. It is an opinion to be considered because, in the end, it will be your face carrying that look!

Have confidence

Entrust your makeup artist that they will be able to deliver a beautiful look on your special day. Your artist has shown their hard work and determination by attending makeup school, and you should have no uncertainty about their skills. So sit back and relax! You’re sure to have a beautiful outcome.

A step in asking yourself why you should trust your makeup artist is going back to why you hired him/her in the first place. Surely, you found something impressive about them. Perhaps they have an array of clients that they succeedingly transformed ready for occasions, or you found their portfolio online and it just felt like the perfect fit to have them.

Education and experience matters

These two aspects are incredibly important. A professional makeup artist has trained exclusively in the art of makeup. Through taking makeup classes, the artist has countless hours of practice on different faces, features and skin tones.

Artists are also taught by industry professionals, who have years of experience. Your artist has the essential skills to communicate effectively with you in order to achieve your vision for your special day.

With all these reasons, it’s not hard to see why trusting a professional makeup artist is the right thing to do. At Nina MUA, we train students to become successful and experienced makeup artists. If you’re looking to pursue a career in makeup artistry, we offer several courses such as the 4-Week Program for beginners to introduce you to the basics. Then there’s Advanced 2-Week Program if you want to go more into the fashion and business side of makeup artistry.

Sanitation Class and Certificate


Sanitation Standards online training teaches sanitation at a health-grade level. A health grade level means we mirror protocols that hospitals use to prevent the spread of bacteria, viruses, and blood-borne pathogens. This training supersedes any state mandates or cosmetology licensing. Unlike most sanitation programs or protocols, the training was created in partnership with a microbiologist. Microbiologists study microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, algae, fungi, and some types of parasites. They try to understand how these organisms live, grow, and interact with their environments. The training was designed for all learning styles, with interactions and videos as content delivery compositions.




*Digital Certification Badge—After successfully completing the training and the course feedback, your customized digital badge will be available once you exit the training.

*Certificate of Completion and Prestige Pin – Upon successful completion of the training, you will receive a Certificate of Completion and Prestige Pin.
