My two stars is only because the instructor is exceptionally cool, and learning the fundamentals was very necessary. You can definitely go to another school and learn a lot more. It is a 2 month program even though it says it's 3. You're drilled more on timing than skill. I feel like I graduated with the same skill I had prior to taking this course, just with a little more background information. You pay about 5G's or more only for a short text book that seemed to be made by the school itself, and for a makeup kit that is also made by the school. Nobody is lying when they say they could've just learned everything on YouTube. I couldn't even recommend this school to somebody who has no idea how to apply makeup, because your skills only improve on a basic level, but not to a professional level. Again, because you're drilled more on your timing than given the time to really learn the applications.

DO NOT GO . Waist of money and time
They give you your so called $1200 makeup kit that has a bunch of worthless dollar store crap in it that burns and is not practical to use on anyone. It's maybe worth 300 at the most. The brushes fall apart the fist day and all they say is ohh well you'll have to glue it.... Umm really. The course is basically you reading out of a book . With some have assed makeup artist as your teacher.. You would learn more off YouTube most that leave the school may have a certificate but can't do makeup... They just want your money.. Save it and goes somewhere else

There is no parking so you have to pay for parking daily.
The instructor was often 20 minutes late in the morning and 20 minutes late in the afternoon.
The kit they provide is no name brand and bad make
And the cost is outrageous,

The training was very thorough, we learned the theory behind each section, saw a demo and then were able to have lots of class time to practice with positive criticism as we worked. The instructor was very good at building our confidence while being very hard on us skill wise. I always felt positive and at the same time felt I was being pushed to my limits which I am very thankful for, itโ€™s made me the good artist I have become. Marty O

Hi Marty O,

I am currently looking into registering for the Online Makeup Academy course at Artists Within in Calgary. The reviews on this school are a bit limited, and I want to be sure taking this course will benefit me and help me become a certified and accomplished makeup artist.

When you received the makeup kit, did it provide you with good quality products and was it worth the amount spent to get the pro-kit?
Do many businesses or clients acknowledge your certificate from Artists Within as sufficient and are willing to do business with you based on those credentials?
And I guess did you feel that the money you spent on taking this course was worth it and the best way for you to truly heighten your skills as a professional makeup artist?

Thank you in advance!

Best regards,

Ashley
