What will you learn in Professional Makeup Artist Course?

The Power of Skill-set

Our primary focus and step 1 is to equip you with the latest makeup skills which will give you an edge above others in the industry. Which is the reason why we cover every technique under one certification. From the latest product knowledge to historic and current trends in the industry, From Hair Styling to Draping we cover everything relevant to a Professional Makeup Artist.

The Art of Selling

No skill is a skill until you can monetize it. While it is important to acquire a skillset but what do you do if you can’t sell and make money out of it? At MJG you don’t have to worry because we get extremely real with our students. Learning Makeup alone is not enough, One needs to learn the art of selling and we teach you exactly that in our Business segment for this certification. From customer behavior to industry insights, from social media awareness to handling difficult situations, we prepare you to be market ready.

Becoming the best version

Being a makeup artist is all about being agile, multitasking, creative, and professional. You need that confidence in your communication and negotiation to succeed. At MJG we focus on your personality development and communication for a holistic positive change in your life. This course must become a milestone in your life.

Still Confused on your Decision?

It is natural to get confused or have doubts, however you will need to take your first step. Fill up the application form and we will call you for course counselling.

Do We Offer Free Makeup Kit?

Nothing in this world is free and the sooner you understand it better you will succeed. When something is sold to you for free then it means you are the product.

Building a makeup kit is a gradual and intricate affair which we will be personally guiding you to build instead of giving you something pre-made.

A professional Makeup kit can range from 15 thousand to 5 lakh rupees and this is something that cannot be built in a day.

We will be providing products at the academy for you to practice however students will be guided with the art of Makeup Products Procurement. Students will be bringing a basic kit with them which we will explain to you during course counselling. Do not worry it doesn’t cost much.

Free Makeup Kit is a “Trap” Do Not Fall for it.
