The School of Make-up Artistry has been in operation for more than 35 years and was the first make-up artistry school in Ireland. The school offers a variety of part-time and full-time courses to suit all levels, from beginners to advanced.
Many graduates are now working in the industry for leading cosmetic companies, such as MAC, Estée Lauder, and Bobbi Brown. Others are working for themselves, specialising in bridal and special occasion make-up, including make-up lessons, nationwide. The cosmetic buyer for Brown Thomas has always been delighted with the graduates recommended by the school for positions in Brown Thomas stores nationwide.
Many companies approach the school when hiring as they know the high standard of training that the school offers.
