Get Ready for the Glow Up With Skin Prep for Makeup Artists in NYC & Philly

We all know the frustration of having our hard work melt away due to factors like humidity, rain, and stress. As a makeup artist, you don’t want a client to look into the mirror only a few hours after you’ve meticulously applied their makeup to see their foundation, bronzer, and blush faded, smudged, or streaky. The best way to protect your artistry from skin oils and outside factors like humidity is to prep your client’s skin before applying any makeup. If your skin prepping skills could use a boost, consider participating in our skincare workshop in New York City, NYC, or Philadelphia.

That’s why, as one of the top skincare schools in the area, we offer in-depth training on skin prep for makeup artists. This includes everything from skin analysis to creating a skincare regime. Our professional instructors provide tips on prepping skin so that makeup looks gorgeous and doesn’t fade fast.
