Hollywood’s professional makeup school


Cinema Makeup School recognizes that for some otherwise deserving young artists, cost can be a barrier to attending makeup classes. That is why CMS is a pioneer in offering these deserving artists opportunities to study through various scholarship programs.

    • The Legends of Creature Design Scholarship is a $10,000 award, given in partnership with legendary, 7-time Oscar-winning makeup and effects artist, Rick Baker. He will personally select the finalists and winner, based on those who demonstrate the greatest combination of technical skill, creativity, and sense of character.


    • The Ve Neill Legends of Makeup Scholarship offers one deserving artist a $10,000 award for tuition at CMS. This scholarship is chosen in conjunction with three-time Oscar®-winning makeup artist and star judge of SyFy’s Face Off Ve Neill, who personally oversees the selections process.


    • The The Next Level of Cosplay Scholarship is an annual scholarship contest judged by award winning Hollywood makeup artists and cosplay specialists that awards a full ride scholarship for the Master Makeup Program to entrants from the cosplay community and beyond with demonstrated talent and an interest in becoming professional makeup artists.
