Will I receive certification upon completion?
Yes, students will receive their certificates upon completion of the course including all homework assignments and passing the final exam.

Is a makeup kit included in the tuition price for the Complete Media Makeup Course and / or the Workshops?

NO. To keep our tuition prices low - the 1-Day Workshop tuition price does NOT include a makeup kit.
And, our complete Media Makeup Course only includes a starter kit (empty rolling makeup case, set of 24 makeup brushes, makeup primer, eight liquid foundations, six creme foundation palette, and a colorless HD setting powder). However, everything the student needs for hands-on practice in the training makeup studio is provided for use during the hands-on practice portion of the class. Also, students will receive instruction on how to apply for the pro-discounts offered to professional makeup artists by many cosmetic brands in order to complete building your professional makeup kit throughout the complete Media Makeup Course and 1-year mentorship program. Click here to view supplies provided for students use during class.

Where are the classes held?
The classes that jump start this one year private mentorship program are held inside Kat's in-home makeup studio located in Buford, GA (5 miles from the Mall of GA). Click here for more information.

Can I come and tour the training facility prior to registration?
No, for many years our classes were held inside a rented classroom or hotel conference room as many other makeup workshops still are. We brought all makeup and supplies needed with us to the conference room therefore nothing to "tour". Recently, we obtained a business license to move the workshops into the basement level of Kat's home. This business location is only open during the hours of the makeup course or workshops and is opened to enrolled students only. In order to prevent class interruption and distractions - we do not offer public tours of our training makeup studio. However, you may click here for a virtual tour.

I have read through all of the information provided on this website and I still have questions that are not answered on this website. Can I speak with someone before registering for a class?

Yes, please call (770) 365-2855 between 9am - 6pm or email kat@atlantamakeupacademy.com with any questions. Emails are answered and all calls are returned within 24 hours except on weekends.
