CMC Makeup School is not a cosmetology school and focuses exclusively on MAKEUP EDUCATION, CAREER and MARKETING for artists, as well as PORTFOLIO DEVELOPMENT and online presence. All instructors are professional Makeup Artists with many years in the industry, who bring their knowledge & experience to the classroom & curriculum. Students receive a certificate of completion for each class taken, which enhances their portfolio, prepares them for certain jobs & makes them eligible for professional makeup artist discounts & memberships. However, there is no standard licensing regulation for make-up artists, so students will still need to communicate with their respective state authority for information on business licensing if they wish to offer more than makeup in the Beauty industry.
