Cinema Makeup School is dedicated to educating the next generation of beauty and special effects makeup artists for career success in the film, television, fashion, and entertainment industries.

Future CMS Vision & Outlook

As Cinema Makeup School enters its third decade of instruction, we feel our offerings and education curriculum  have never been more vital, from our lab assistant job placement, to upcoming internship opportunities, exciting new offerings have radically enhanced and expanded the school’s reach.


Current students and recent grads have placed highly in a number of recent competitions, and some had their work featured in notable trade publications, like Make-up Artist magazine, before even graduating. Many others have gone on to high-profile jobs working with major effects shops or assisting well-known artists such as Steve Wang, Kazuhiro Tsuji, and Joel Harlow. Meanwhile, enrollment continues to grow.


Still, the plan remains the same: pair eager students with top established talent, teach them the latest methods in a concentrated creative environment, and great work will follow.
