Our MUA extensive course is not only filled with hands-on training but also offers an end-of-course photoshoot. This lesson provides essential experience makeup artists need when first launching their careers. The photoshoot will take place on a rooftop and the streets of NYC, so you can begin to build an impressive portfolio. Your instructor will guide you through creating your own mood board and face charts as you prep for the photoshoot. On the day of the shoot, you will be able to work with professional models and photographers as you receive on-set training. At the end of the program, you will walk away with in-depth training and six retouched pictures that you can use in your portfolio and resume.

Sanitation Class and Certificate

EXCLUSIVE TO THE MAKEUP ACADEMY STUDENTS

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.

INCLUDES:

  • ONLINE TRAINING
  • BEAUTY, SPECIAL FX & THEATER MAKEUP PROTOCOLS
  • CERTIFICATION*
  • PRESTIGE PIN*
  • ADDED TO THE SANITATION SPECIALIST DATABASE
  • DIGITAL BADGE*

 

*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.
