As a makeup artist you can always with great precision create illusions and manipulate shape and character. To accomplish this, much knowledge is needed of contouring, shading techniques and correcting. A professional makeup artist also has special expertise within fields such as film effects, the way light affects work within a studio, medicinal camouflage, among other things.

As a makeup artist you often work in a team. Together with models, actors, designers, producers and photographers you will get to unleash your creativity. Your work is important and demanded. Color and shape are part of your workday as well as exciting challenges within fashion and trends. The expansion of the advertisement and media-industry has made the demand for skilled makeup artists ever-growing, now and in the future.


In the education we include two big set-bags, work clothes, brush kit, professional makeup products, tools and hair products which is worth at minimum 4000 euro. Everything which you will need is included. You will not need to buy anything further.


In the beginning of the education we will teach you the fundamentals within makeup, work hygiene, skin care as well as knowledge of products and tools. You will also be educated in handling customers and ergonomics. 

To early on learn these factors will give you a sturdy platform to stand on and will make your workdays easier in your professional life.

The amount of varied techniques, makeups and stylings and updos which we have chosen for the content of your study material are those which are of highest demand within the market.  This complete course content will give you knowledge and the best possible preconditions to be able to work in all types of assignments. The content of your education is more than enough of the knowledge which is needed and expected of makeup and hair stylists all over the world. 

During your education you will be offered internships. The internships are adapted according to the content of your education. Exciting and educational internship work combined with teacher-led classes are very important for a good and rewarding education.  All intern work will be supplied by Mariart’s agency and will lead directly to working in the professional business. We have high standards regarding the type of internship work which our makeup artists and hairstylists will be offered.  They shall lead to experience and contacts within the industry. In some cases, the students will also be paid as interns.

Mariart has close working relationships with several large actors within the business, such as Estée Lauder, Dior, TV4-group, SVT, Vecko Revyn, Fashion Week, among others.

We also work with the larger production companies within TV and movies. This will of course benefit our makeup artists and hair stylists during their education but also after their examination. Many of our intern jobs will lead directly to professional work. We can proudly boast that many of our students are offered work already during their education.


Usually, you as a student will choose if you want to book a model for the lesson or if you want to practice on a classmate.  For some students, booking models feels tricky and cumbersome and so we will offer the opportunity for students to practice on each other or style their afforded hair doll.

For those students who wish to makeup and style on a model, we have a wide register of models which can be booked for your class. Of course, your friends and family are also very welcome to participate as models.


During the last week of your makeup-artist education, you will be working with assembling your portfolio. This will contain both preparatory and performative work. During the education you will work with professional photographers and model agencies. This will afford you with invaluable knowledge in how the industry works which helps you with getting started with your own portfolio.

After having completed your education you will be an internationally certified makeup & hair stylist. With your assembled certificate document, CV and your newly initiated portfolio, you will have the best possible resources and pre-qualifications for succeeding in the business of your chosen craft.


After completed education you will be part of Mariart’s agency. At our agency you have the possibility of being assisted and supported with assignments and work.
