A Message from the Philadelphia Executive Director

As the Executive Director of the Makeup Academy, I can attest this is the most Iconic Luxurious Experience you could ever come across. Imagine your wildest dreams coming to life each and every day before your eyes. Everyday I get to show up and give our students so much more knowledge than how to use your brush. It is my job to give the instructions to use the tools we give to teach students to build so much more than their artistry. You will leave our program feeling confident and ready to conquer. I would have LOVED to have a program like this over a decade ago when I went to school. If not now, when? Now is the time to kick start your future! We can’t wait to have you, pack your kits and hop in for a Journey of your Life Time!

If you are selected to join us, you will get 2-3 looks and 4-6 retouched photos and lunch is provided! These opportunities are unpaid, however, you will network with photographers, artist and other models and have a great experience on campus with us! Looks are at the discretion of our artists based on what they are looking to add to their portfolios.
