Professional Make-Up Johannesburg

Stand Out from the Crowd with a Professional Make-Up Qualification

Johannesburg is South Africa’s largest city, and a cosmopolitan beacon to the continent, welcoming many people to the sunny city throughout the year. In order for any beauty professional to stand out from the crowded marketplace, you have to have something more than mere talent and enthusiasm, which abound in the industry. You need to have an edge over your competitors, and taking up a professional make-up qualification is exactly what can help you set yourself apart.

While talent is important, so is being proficient in the technical aspects of your design craft. We are proud to be the only internationally and nationally recognised make-up design and special effects academy in South Africa. Our academy provides a unique opportunity for learners from all walks of life who would like to pursue a career as a professional make-up artist in Johannesburg, or any other city in South Africa, or around the world.

Whether you want to work as a private make-up artist, or work in the field of television, film and theatre, our internationally recognised and celebrated courses help you to get there. We also invite visiting specialist lecturers from abroad to present courses at the academy, thus ensuring that our students stay up to date with the very latest programmes, international methodologies and techniques in the industry.

I am the designated photographer for the only internationally and nationally accredited make-up training institution which is celebrating is 52 years of operation. I love to experiment with the power of photography, specialising in conceptual & fashion, although I love shooting anything that challenges me. I shoot on location but also have my own studio situated in Parktown, Johannesburg.
