Behind the Scenes, Videos & Testimonials on

Tasha Green wrote about CMC on Aug 27th – I am located in Denver and thoroughly searched for a school that would be heavy in education with a lot of hands on practice. It was important that the information taught included historical references, as well as relevant, current trends. I wanted to be taught by professionals actively working in the field with portfolios that reflected multiple and varied styles. CMC was everything I was looking for and so much more. The tips and tricks they taught was like manna for a hungry artist. The instructors were fun, on trend, helpful, passionate, and truly caring. The environment was professional and inclusive. I will absolutely fly back for more classes!
Daisy Young wrote about CMC on Aug 27th I signed up for the Ultimate Artist Plus class, not knowing at all what to expect. Once class started it all exceeded my expectations! The teachers provide you with so much knowledge of this art. It’s apparent that they all love what they’re doing, so it’s easy for us too to fall deeper in love with makeup. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone who is wanting an in-depth, hands-on, learning experience. I feel totally prepared to go out and start my business after this.
Kevin Riley wrote about CMC on Aug 26th – I took the Ultimate Artist 8 day program. I have been working as a freelance artist for a year, and I was basically self taught. I learned so many new techniques to use in addition to better ways of doing things I was already doing. I highly recommend CMC Makeup School, and I plan on going back in the future for new seminars/classes to further my makeup education!
Patty K. wrote about CMC on Jul 26th – I highly recommend the CMC classes, (I attended the Master Ring). Even though I am a licensed hairstylist, I had no idea what to expect going in. Christopher and Jake could not have made the experience any better! They kept good energy going, had us laughing, gave us a ton of tips, made learning easy, were extremely kind and patient and had great time management. Overall, I had the BEST experience and can’t wait to attend other classes in the future.
Linda D. wrote about CMC on Jul 24th I attended the Master Ring Class in Austin, TX. I learned so so much, i though i new everything about makeup but i learned so much more and know that i am better prepared to go out on my own now. It is a great investment and the knowledge of the business you get is incredible. I will definitely be taking another course soon hopefully the hair course. Thanks CMC =)

Chinika Watkins wrote about CMC on Jun 5th – I attended the Master Makeup Classes in Dallas, TX. I debated for awhile whether or not I was going to attend. Let me tell you, I am so glad I did. This class is worth every penny! I learned so much within this timeframe. I had great instructors, Walter and Christopher was awesome! Both kept the class professional and fun at the same time. I received hands on help and learned what I was doing wrong. I am much more confident in my work and ready to take this business head on. It was just a great experience like no other. If you’re uncertain about your work, looking to enhance your skills, or looking to build more confidence take these courses. You will not regret it! I am definitely looking forward to take more courses from CMC in the near future! Unbelievable experience, I learned so much!

Dalinha Chou wrote about CMC on Apr 27th I truly enjoy this makeup class. I was skeptical at first because of the price and its a little bit too far from my house. But i decided to give myself a chance to explore the experience with CMC school and I really enjoy it. I get to learn a lot of new techniques that I never know before and I started to realize that I really like to become MUA. Both of the instructors are very knowledgeable, helpful. I would recommended this class to my friends.

Kristi Halliday wrote about CMC on Aug 31st –  I am so happy that I decided to take the Ultimate Artist course with CMC. The location was great, instructors were all knowledgeable and very nice…very comfortable atmosphere! I learned SO much while I was there and the class size was small so there was lots of hands on help. Any time I ever have a question they are so willing to help and very quick to respond (Alyssa and Christopher especially.) You not only leave with more knowledge, you leave with ALOT of products and things that are necessary for success. I feel like it was worth every penny and I feel fortunate that they do classes in Texas. Would recommend these classes for anyone wanting to further their makeup education. –
Brenda Martinelli about CMC on Aug 6th – I had so much fun taking these classes! The staff is so personable and always prompt on responding to any questions I’ve had. Chris has such a professional disposition, I heard someone ask if he was the owner. I’ve only met Alyssa via email so far but she feels like a friend I’ve had forever. And Eric’s style of teaching was so positive and encouraging. Whenever I started doubting myself he’d say, “Great job!” or show me how to improve without being critical. You can’t beat the one on one input you get with such small class sizes.This team really makes you feel special and that you can be successful. I look forward to taking more classes!

Because their are so many useful things to learn and you can only discover them at CMC Make up school.

Jen Evans wrote about CMC on Dec 7th – I attended the Pro Ring Class in October and was truly impressed with the level of education I received in just 1 week. Chris was not only masterful in his teaching techniques, but consistently went above & beyond expectations to ensure we truly excelled in each skill. The one-on-one time with he and Maggie was invaluable & it was an honor to learn from artists of their caliber. With the tremendous knowledge I gained from CMC, I’ve been able to begin work right away in a variety of areas from bridal to photoshoots to stage & theatrical shows. I would highly recommend CMC to anyone who desires a high quality makeup education in a short amount of time. I absolutely LOVED my time there & have immediately benefited from the wide array of makeup techniques I was taught 🙂

Melissa M. wrote about CMC: We attended the class this past weekend, October 23-24, 2011. The class filled all our expectations. Chris and Amber were very helpful and gave us great tips on how to improve our applications. The hands on course is a great way to learn, plus Chris and Amber were there to help us out in every aspect. Alyssa was great and helped guide us along the way, with finding models and answering any questions we had before the class start date. I recommend attending CMC makeup school, it was fun, inspiring, and I learned lots in just a short period of time. I’m from Albuquerque, NM and flying out to Dallas was well worth it. Receiving a certification and meeting lots of great people along the way was an over all great experience. We didn’t know what to expect, but in the end it turned out well. I’m excited to start applying what I learned and jump start my path forward as a makeup artist.

Emily wrote about CMC: I enjoyed my Beauty Allure class last weekend so much! I learned everything I hoped and was very impressed with the teachers. Christopher and Amber were friendly and very eager to help. They showed us so many fun techniques…I can’t wait to try them all out. I would recommend this to anyone interested in becoming a makeup artist. I hope to come back soon for the more advanced classes!!  Thanks so much!
Lyna Nguyen wrote about CMC: I have learned a lot about the techniques in doing this makeup classes. I t surely did give me a lot more confidence in doing makeup on others. The instructors were great. It was good to be learning from different instructors since each came with their own background and experiences. Christopher was great. He was with us every step of the way. Each time we need help, he was right there.

I would definitely refer CMC to my friends. CMC got great instructors & the guidelines and materials are really helpful. Wouldn’t it be great if we can become assistants for instructors on occasions? Great way for shadowing. Lyna Nguyen.

Lizbeth Mejorado wrote about CMC: I had the best experience learning new techniques, practicing and just having fun with the rest of the students. The instructors is very patiente and explain everything with detail. Lots of information. I attended two other classes in the past and this has been the best investment I ever did to learn make up. It gave me the confidence to go back home and start putting everything I learn in action. Great instructors, Christopher was just the best, nice and fun, very helpful and creative!

Stephanie Rangel wrote about CMC: This class was the best experience ever! I learned so much from each instructor, Chris, Maggie & Amber are amazing! I am definitely coming back for the airbrush class, now I’m ready to take the next step in my career. Thanks again for everything- loved it!
Tori Jones wrote about CMC: CMC more than reached my expectations. The environment was very comfortable and the instructors made it quite easy to ask questions or ask for help. The curriculum we covered was just right for the amount of time given to apply the makeup and hair techniques. If your looking to learn the right way to apply makeup, CMC is the best choice. Your hands on with your make-up and supplies, and the quality of the products given is awesome! I truly loved my week at CMC, I wish it would have been a little longer, just so I could spend more time with my fellow artists. I heard that they will be offering other classes that go into more depth of different makeup styles and I will definitely be going to those classes as well.

Alfonso Lucin wrote about CMC: CMC gave me the confidence I did not have before. I am glad that I decided to enroll because it’s definitely worth it! The training is a great foundation for my creative passion. I would definitely recommend CMC to anyone, and will definitely be looking forward to more future training classes you will be providing.

Jessey Hues wrote about CMC:  I’m so grateful that I spent my tax refund wisely this year by taking the masters-ring course at CMC! Although; it went too quick (in my opinion) 🙁 I was able to gain a ton of knowledge, one-on-one training, and professional insight to jumpstart my career. The instructors are great; each one offers their particular specialty in the field, yeilding a unique and amazing experience for the student… and They Don’t Forget About You After You’re Certified and Done With the Class!!! Thank You CMC.. I’ve gotten a great response from my work! Jessey Hues
Brooke Renee’ wrote about CMC: CMC Makeup School -Dallas taught me so many things that I thought I knew, but actually didn’t. I learned how to apply beauty/glamour makeup the correct way, as well as airbrush makeup and how to network myself and my work. Christopher was one of the best teachers I have ever come across, so patient and willing to help out whenever he was needed. If it weren’t for CMC, I would still be walking around trying to brand myself as a makeup artist without knowing exactly what it took to be able to call myself such.
Penelope Louve wrote about CMC:  Great school. I was impressed with how much information I received from my instructor at CMC. Your website is full of so much information & resources as well as ideas for makeup artists. I can stay on your site for hours, lol. Keep up the good work

Nilza Rodriguez wrote about CMC: Please send me the schedule/information for new classes added in Dallas ..I loved the makeup/airbrush class along w/ the instructors, they were great & the best part was that it was only a few of us,so we got fullllllllllll attention & all questions answered. Hope to hear from you soon to get the full details for the Hair Styling class. Have a great week.

I feel like I walked in the door as a basic artist and through your instruction I was magically transformed into a power house ready to take charge in the world of Makeup! I know there is still much to be learned, but I feel prepared and confident; ready for the challenge. I love that CMC goes beyond application, by teaching us every aspect of the business from marketing ourselves to industry terminology. For me CMC was more than earning a certificate, it was an exhilarating experience. Thank you and I plan on attending any future classes you offer

Abigail Rudow wrote about CMC: Awesome school, and great instructors. You guys were so patient with me, lol. I especially loved the airbrush class, and can’t wait to do more! Let me know when the pictures are done. I’m excited to see them!

I am definitely recommending this school to some my friends who I know are interested in makeup.
