So you wanna be a Make-Up Artist?
Ever since I can remember, I've wanted to be a Make-Up Artist.
My Mum and Aunt both worked in the beauty industry and it was always around me.
My "play" make-up was their off casts of Dior, Chanel & Estee Lauder...yes, I was a lucky little kid. So it wasn't a surprise to anyone that I would end up in the beauty industry myself. I'm like a pig in mud with all that pretty stuff....and the gory stuff too (even though, since having children, I've found I have less interest in the gore) I'll leave that to some of my awesome students (you can read about Mark and his Emmy honour here)

Anyway, as many of you who have read my blog, or have been one of
victims clients, you'd know, I've been doing make-up for something like 23 years. Crikey, that makes me sound old!!!
But, you can teach an old dog new tricks!!
I'm a firm believer in ongoing training. It's important to not get "up yourself" and think you know everything. I love youtube and blogs about beauty and make-up for that very reason, but I needed more than that, from a pro AND I just can't spare the time to go to courses (not the times that suit me anyway). Having 3 kids, plus husband, plus house reno etc leaves very little time for me to update and learn new skills.
Thank you, thank you great architect of the universe for the internet and RPM Online Make-Up Academy.
Who says you can't have your cake and eat it too? (PS: Don't tell anyone about the cake...it'll between you and me ;)
RPM Makeup Academy is an online academy that you actually get a real certificate of graduation at the end. There are no memberships, no dvd's, no selling makeup kits! A real makeup university. It's the wave of the future!
I started the FX plus Artistry course last week, and I am so impressed with the quality and delivery of the course. My first assignment is due (& as soon as my lovely friend gets her
butt beautiful face over here for me, I'll share the pics).
I'll be updating my progress on the blog as I go through the course too.
The courses deliver state of the art online makeup training with Multi-Media Presentation Lesson/Module with Streaming Video with HDLearn Technology. It's so easy to follow.
The wedding industry is BOOMING (as long as people are getting married, there will be the need for bridal make-up artists). Such a great career for those with little ones.
So for those many Mums who asked me about where to learn to become a make-up artist here's your answer.
There are lots of different courses to choose from, so if you want to become a professional make-up artist or just want to learn how to do your make-up like a professional, check out RPM.
