As a service to its students and graduates, Cinema Makeup School operates the Cinema Makeup Store, which provides access to all the cosmetics and materials necessary for class activities. New students may choose to purchase their school materials from Cinema Makeup Store as part of an all-inclusive beauty or special effects makeup kit or purchase separately through other means. Before purchasing materials, you should speak to a CMS academic advisor to make sure you are using the correct list. Some students who take individual classes may require additional materials to complete their class kits. Read below for a comprehensive list of available class and supplemental kits.
