Makeup Artistry

The heart of Ruby Makeup Academy is our makeup artistry program; we have spent a great deal of time and research to create a lesson plan that we feel gives our students the best makeup education possible. We have developed a curriculum that gives our grads the right tools to succeed in any part of the makeup industry that they choose to purse. Our students are taught the techniques that will prepare them to do makeup for freelancing jobs, music videos, films, TV shows, magazines, fashion, and all forms of print media. Our goal is for every graduate to leave the program with confidence in their skills, ready for the real world of makeup artistry.

The instructors are there during the practice time to answer any questions students may have, and they provide suggestions on improving technique. Providing a thorough and well taught curriculum is our main focus in the classroom.
