You always loved makeup and now you plan to become a makeup artist. You checked with some of your friends and now you are searching what to do next. Few if lucky enough find the right academy and an excellent professional makeup artist course while many follow the steps below and usually get stuck.

Mistakes that we make while selecting a Makeup Course.

Step 1:

Like everyone you go to google and type “Makeup Artist course” and you see a full load of advertisements, you refine your search and you type Best Makeup Artist course or Best Makeup Academy and now things take a serious turn. You are now flooded with options and each one claiming they are the best.

Step 2:

Then you start calling these Makeup Academies and hear different kinds of makeup courses. You also get shocked with the course fee everyone is charging

Step 3:

You either drop the plan after hearing the high course fees or start convincing yourself that you will watch YouTube videos and learn or you start visiting these places.

Step 4:

Considering your financial situation, passion and determination you take admission in one of the makeup courses.

Outcome:

After the course completion, you have indeed learnt makeup however not very sure if you have learnt it all and how would you actually start earning money. It is so confusing.

Market is flooded with Makeup academies like mushrooms with courses giving you shortcuts to become a makeup artist. I have seen courses which are so bizarre and barely covers anything and yet they call it Professional course. To be honest you will end up with trust issues. Here is what you should keep in mind, Doesn’t matter which academy you join but you definitely need to ensure the following points are considered.

1. No shortcuts

When you are selecting a course you need to learn everything from basic to advance, you cannot just learn few modules and think you have become a professional.

2. Fees should not be your selection criteria

Do not fall for cheaper fees, there is a reason they are charging you less and you must know the reason why, I am neither saying all who are charging more are best. You should know return on investment. Look for the content and if it’s worth it.

 

3. Fake Marketing & Fake Promises

You will find too good to be true offers like 100% Job placement , Celebrity Models, this and that. They are generally placed so well that students often get too excited. No institute can guarantee your job unless you are good. If having a career was so easy as paying the fees and getting your dream job then things would have been different.

What you should again focus on is the content , Trust me there is NO 100% job placement guarantee in this industry.

4. Free Makeup Kit

Almost everyone offers Makeup Kit along with the course. First off its not free, your makeup kit price has been included in your fees. You get a ready made kit with brands you may not like working with in future or may be they are not enough . I am against giving a free makeup kit to my students. We teach premium artistry and so we need to work with 100 of different brands, We need to understand the brands, makeup products how to buy them from where to buy them. If we get everything ready made you lose the opportunity to learn the technique of buying products which is extremely essential for a makeup artist. If you are aiming to work at a Salon for a particular brand then may be you can avail this service since you will not be allowed to work with any other brands plus you would not need to buy anything as everything will be provided to you by the Salon.

5. Do your homework

A professional course will include all kinds of makeup from fashion to bridal and would cover every technique and aspects of makeup. Be extremely thorough with your homework. You should pick your academy basis the trainer, content, popularity of reviews and practicality of the course.

Finally when you find your perfect Makeup Academy, Treat the place with respect and gain from the experience of your trainer. Build healthy relationship so that you get all the support you need to establish yourself in the market.

A perfect makeup academy is the one which genuinely builds you from scratch as an artist and gives you every possible download of experience so that you can make sense out of that education.

Learning makeup is an investment and finding out the place where you must invest has to be a well informed decision.
