So You Wanna Become a Make-Up Artist?

Who's a Make-Up Artist?

How can YOU become a Certified MakeUp Artist?

To become a Certified MakeUp Artist (CMA) in the state of California you can receive your certification by completing a MakeUp Artist Course. 

MakeUp Courses can vary depending on the level of professional MakeUp you want to learn. Although most aspiring CMAs opt to complete the Professional MakeUp Course, you also have options of enrolling in many of the other available courses with lower time constraints and fewer techniques to learn.
