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 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 Next Level of Cosplay Scholarship is an annual scholarship contest judged by cosplay star Yaya Han and Oscar® winner Joel Harlow that awards over $20,000 in scholarship money to entrants from the cosplay community and beyond with demonstrated talent and an interest in becoming professional makeup artists.
