What Our Students Are Saying…

Over 5,000 makeup artists have graduated from CMU in the past 30 years

I’ve done so much in the month that I graduated, that I’m so grateful for and so happy that I’m doing. This has been one of the best times in my life. Working a job that doesn’t feel like a job but makes you happy is amazing. This was made for me and I’m so passionate about it; doing this for the rest of my life is what I intend on doing.

Everything was so well put together that it was smooth sailing. Everybody was very nervous about doing anything because life suddenly came to a halt. CMU helped me a lot; everybody was constantly with us in connection. It was a good experience, I enjoyed it a lot – I learned a lot. If I could sit at home and learn so much, I can do anything.

After 12 years of working with brides, I had the opportunity to move to Toronto. Knowing what I had learned in Brazil, I was determined to find something that would not only improve my skills but also my knowledge of the different techniques and products used in the industry. Being here in this incredible school and being able to learn about all the paths I can take in this profession is simply magical.
