This guide is chock full of useful information for anyone looking to begin a career as a makeup artist.” – TC Thecla Luisi, Makeup Artist, Los Angeles
I want to start by simply saying thank you, thank you, thank you. In taking the Makeup Artist Course I was able to take the first step in having the career that I always dreamed of having, instead of staying stuck in the constant rut of fast food or seasonal jobs. I know this is a long road and this is only the first step, but I still feel a sense of great joy and accomplishment at just starting on this journey and IAP college was what gave me a nudge into not just talking about a career change but taking the steps to make it happen. So thank you all at IAP career college as I reach for success and make my dreams a reality that I love getting up in the morning to pursue.” – Ravyn Moore, San Antonio, Texas
