About Multimedia Makeup Academy.

At Multimedia Makeup Academy, we know that you have big dreams of becoming a sought after professional. To thrive in today’s makeup industry, you need the training and coaching that gives you both the skills and confidence to succeed, whether at fashion week, at a client’s house, or on a film or commercial set as a special makeup fx artist.

The problem is that raw talent alone doesn’t open up opportunities to thrive in the ultra-competitive makeup industry. As a result, most artists and stylists end up feeling frustrated, discouraged, and unfulfilled as they waste time and money in pursuing a career with little or no success.

We understand the frustration of passionate enthusiasts, and we know it can feel overwhelming trying to do it on your own.

Our graduates get hired to work on projects they love and are able to respectfully ask for the rate they deserve because of their vast skill set. Students have the choice to choose their licensure through Esthetics or Cosmetology. Students are then able to select the makeup program that best suits their future career aspirations.


The goal of accreditation is to ensure that education provided by institutions of higher education, like Multimedia Makeup Academy, meets or exceeds an acceptable level of quality. Multimedia Makeup Academy is in candidate status with NACCAS.
