"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."
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 on 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.
After doing a course in India, I worked with Mac cosmetics. It was on the job that I realized how big and fantastic this industry is. What I loved about CMU is that they had a very clear plan towards the way they teach. The faculty was amazing, each and every teacher had years of experience in their industry. I had the most amazing time learning from the best.
