  • Life as a makeup artist

    Going to college is a big and important step. With the proliferation of makeup schools nowadays, some basic level of professional training has become a pretty common expectation for new makeup talent looking to work professionally.

    Going to any particular school will never assure your success, but choosing a school that challenges you is a strong way to start your makeup journey.

    If you’re starting to look at makeup schools, chances are you’re beginning to look at makeup not just as a hobby or even a passion, but also as a potential career. At the make up crew, we’re often approached by students, parents and even graduate’s looking for advice on taking the next step in the makeup world.

    In our years training artists for all facets of the makeup game, we’ve come to learn that there is no one path to success. In fact, different makeup artists have different definitions of what “success” even means.

    Your goal is your own. As long as you have one, we’re here to help you on the way.

    At the make up Crew we stand behind our graduates for every step of their careers and offer lifetime graduate mentoring. Our graduates regularly take advantage of this pledge by contacting our directors for career advice and counseling.


“The course I chose was module 2 with a diploma in fashion and glamour makeup, with three other courses behind me and fully qualified it was an amazing refresher for me.

During the course I was offered to do work experience, I was given the opportunity to work on “The Rocky Horror Picture show” on the Sugar club which was amazing to be back stage. I was offered a ladies day out held in the Aviva Staduim giving makeovers to woman with a new brand of makeup also giving an amazing chance to work with the Saint Patrick’s day parade of 2014 which was a very busy day with over 150 faces to be done with just over 10 makeup artists.

I received a distinction for my portfolio and after the course I felt really confident to get into the career ofmakeup, I am now employed by makeup recruitment for luxury brands and have worked on counters in brown Thomas and Arnotts such as Laura Mercier, La Prairie and Yves Saint Laurent.

I cannot recommend this College enough, the teaching is superb from such lovely girls and not playing by the rules but embracing your inner style and flair is what matters here.”

– Laura Cullen, past student.


“I had researched a lot of makeup schools prior to enrolling at The Makeup Crew, I think it was their friendly professionalism that made me decide to join them…
and i am happy I did.

While I was there I learned a lot about makeup techniques and also importantly
about the industry in general. Lots of practical hands on experience at events,
stage shows etc. gave me the confidence and knowledge to pursue my own
particular direction in the industry.

I represented The Makeup Crew at the Warpaint Professional Beauty
competition in Dublin in 2013, it was my first attempt at a competition and i was
nervous to have my work critiqued by so many people but
The Makeup Crew were there
cheering me on and to my surprise i finished in 3rd place
from a tight field of entrants. It was great to have their encouragement
and advice.

Since finishing my course with The Makeup Crew I have worked on feature films, a music video and in various other areas as a freelance makeup artist.”
