I am consistently asked about makeup schools that I would recommend to new artists, but I also want to add that ANY makeup artist needs to continue her education and also learn the ins and outs of the makeup industry and how to run your own business. ENTER The Val Garland school of make-up. I am beyond thrilled to recommend this online course, and encourage new and veteran artists across the world to look into this amazing course. You can participate from your home, and get a world class education that teaches you not only about artistry, but gives you the business skills you need to thrive.
Val Garland has created looks for every major fashion magazine and fashion brand in the world, from Vogue to i-D, MAC to Lanvin. Now, alongside some of her peers in the industry, she's giving you the skills and opportunities to do the same.
Guest experts include: i-D, Vivienne Westwood, Nick Knight, journalist Sali Hughes, NARS and many more. This is an unrivalled opportunity to get insider insight into how make-up artists can navigate the fashion industry from the world’s most respected artists and brands.
Plus, you'll learn alongside the most exciting make-up artists from across the world. Together, develop your creative skills to the level demanded from lead artists, and create an industry-relevant portfolio seen by the people you need to impress.
This isn’t the standard ‘how-to’. It’s a course for ambitious MUAs who want to work at the top of the fashion industry. Think of it as a three-month apprenticeship with Val, her team and her network of fashion legends. The only way you’d get more personal experience would be to be her assistant!
