I can’t say enough about Sydney College of Makeup. It was everything I could have wanted and more. The trainers are amaaaaaaaaazing. They have so much experience and knowledge and are not precious about sharing it all with us. The main things I loved about it was the small class sizes, the work experiences, the products we got in our kits, the trainers and support of the Director. I had professional products to work with which was so great. I had previously done a makeup course and I had really cheap products to work with and I felt that I struggled during the course because of this. When I saw the MAC products and the brushes and the three palettes of high pigmented eye shadows in my kit (and the rest) I was very happy indeed. The Director of the college was also very supportive and would send me lots of work experience. I would regularly doubt myself but she encouraged me and helped me every step of the way. I still ask her for advice even though I left the college three years ago and she is still more than happy to help me. This is something I appreciate so much as her advice has been invaluable to me in business and as a makeup artist. I have now recommended three of my friends do the course with SCMA and I will continue to recommend the college in future when anyone is looking for a makeup college as I had such great training leading to a great start in the makeup industry.
I completed the Diploma of Makeup 3 years ago at The Sydney Collage Of Makeup Art. I left the course armed with all the required technical experience and so much practical hands on make up experience, I felt confident to start my own freelance makeup business straight away. The collage offers a friendly, light filled environment that is fun, yet informative. The trainers are highly knowledgable and are experienced professionals working in the makeup /fashion/TV industry. Included in the course is a photoshoot day, where a photographer comes into the studio to capture your makeup looks on models. This was so valuable as students had professional images to start building their websites and profile. The support and encouragement doesn't end once you leave the course, we have the opportunity to build on our skills and complete further hair courses and are given many work experience opportunities and actual paid work. If you are serious about a career in makeup I highly recommend studying at The Sydney Collage Of Makeup Art, it armed me with all the skills and confidence I needed to have a successful business doing work that I love.
“I found Sydney College of Make Up Art to be fun and professional. As a student, I felt secure that the Director of the College was personally interacting, warm, welcoming and worked closely with me and my class mates and made sure we were well accommodated. She was always sourcing quality products for our kit. The staff always responded to my queries quickly. The teachers in this College are all working in the makeup industry. I felt like I was receiving all the latest tips and the classes were really fun and I made friends easily. This college provided an abundance of great work experience opportunities, in which I have built a really good portfolio. I had such a good experience and I highly recommend the Sydney College of Makeup Art.”
"From the experienced teachers to the substantial work experience and well stocked kit, I would highly recommend Sydney College of Makeup Art. I found the college to be thorough and fun and even landed myself a position at MAC within 3 months of beginning study. So many experiences have come from my Diploma with the College, and I'm excited to see where it will take me next."
"I could not have asked for a more incredible introduction to the makeup and hairstyling industry! Learning from experienced and current artists who are diverse in their skills and share all the tips and tricks of the industry so willingly is amazing. I was trained in a class with 9 incredible ladies and continue to work with a few of them 3 and a half years after graduating. There is always work experience available both during and after your course, and I still get emails even now. I recommend Sydney College of Makeup Art to anyone."
