At Multimedia Makeup Academy of Esthetics, Cosmetology, and Special FX, a comprehensive makeup education is provided for students when they choose to pursue esthetics training. While most beauty schools offer programs for esthetics or makeup, The Academy is the only beauty school where students get to develop a full makeup education while completing esthetics training at the same time.
The result: you know anatomy, skin types, and skin health much better than if you only got taught in one area. As an added bonus, your marketability greatly increases! You’re ahead of the game and you stand out from others when you receive esthetics training paired with a makeup education.
You’ll Become a Skin Expert
There’s a lot for an aspiring esthetician to learn, but one of the biggest areas of focus is the face. Some of the most important things that estheticians need to know are sanitation, personal hygiene, anatomy, skin conditions and contraindications, skincare practices, and skincare science. The skin on the face is more delicate and sensitive than the skin on other parts of the body, so it requires extra care. That’s why esthetics training puts such a heavy emphasis on the face, sanitation, and skin conditions. You have to be able to work with any client, no matter their skin type and regardless of conditions like acne
Makeup artists also learn and study these same ideas. Makeup artists should know the anatomy of the face well. This could help with accuracy when it comes to makeup application. Makeup artists also work specifically with eyebrows and eyelashes, both of which are areas that estheticians frequently work on. For example, some of the most common beauty treatments clients receive from estheticians are brow design and sculpting, brow lamination, lash tinting, lash lifts and perms, and lash extensions. If a makeup artist has esthetics training, their makeup application can account for any beauty treatments their client may have had.
Even if you want to do makeup like Special FX, esthetician training still plays a big role. A lot of makeup special effects are wounds, like cuts and bruises. Extensive knowledge about the skin and even anatomy is important to create effects like these.
Estheticians and makeup artists both work closely on the face and require expert knowledge about facial anatomy and skin. By training in both areas at the same time, you get a much more thorough understanding than other estheticians or makeup artists. Additional time spent practicing either esthetics or makeup techniques on and around the face improves skills in both areas.
You’ll Have a Better Understanding of Skin Health
When you enroll in an esthetics + makeup program at The Academy, you receive extensive training in several classes that include some of the same knowledge and techniques. For example, hygiene and sanitation are taught in both makeup and esthetics. Makeup classes include a focus on skin prep and set, products and tools, and beauty application. Each mentioned area becomes easier for makeup artists to learn and practice when they have also received esthetics training.
Understanding skin prep and set from an esthetician’s point of view means knowing a client’s skin type and what works best for their skin. There are a ton of different makeup products and tools out there, but since facial skin can greatly differ from person to person, it can be hard to tell what really works best. Esthetics training, however, can help a makeup artist know what brands and tools will bring out the best results for their client.
Not having this knowledge could potentially have negative effects. With so many different ingredients used in beauty products, people are often allergic to several different products. Makeup artists who have esthetics training can better recognize what products are safe. They can also learn to identify allergic reactions that clients may have to a product since they’ll know skin conditions.
Since skincare is a priority for makeup users, it’s important to know what ingredients are the best to use for optimal results. When people put together their skincare routine, they may not know what exactly they’re putting on their skin. However, makeup artists who have had esthetics training can guide their clients to the best and safest products. Knowing how to maintain sanitary conditions and take care of skin health are absolute musts for beauty professionals. Pairing a makeup education with esthetics training guarantees you’ll know these areas well and will be able to take the best care of your clients.
You Become More Sought After
Marketability is everything when it comes to job searching these days. The more skills you have, the more marketable you are to potential employers and clients. When you become a licensed esthetician who is also certified in makeup artistry, you stand out from peers who may have only gone to a makeup school or an esthetics school, not both. Employers and clients in salons or producers on movie or television sets want beauty professionals who have had a well-rounded beauty education and have extensive experience in their licensed areas.
Even as a solopreneur of your own business, clients will see your certifications and skills and know that you’re more qualified than others. With all the layered and extensive knowledge you’ll receive with makeup and esthetics training, you will be an expert in all things skin, facial, and health. Only The Academy provides programs in which you receive makeup and esthetics training at the same time. Students get a comprehensive and robust makeup education that other beauty schools don’t offer while simultaneously training for their license in esthetics.Become more knowledgeable and sought after when you enroll in The Academy’s dual programs.
