"Choosing CMU was very simple for me. I walked around set and asked makeup artists I was working with, what school they would recommend if I wanted to make the transition into the makeup department. Everyone unanimously said CMU. To be sure, I called the President of IATSE 873 and proposed the same question. Their answer was the same, CMU."
