"Taking this makeup class took me from makeup enthusiast to feeling comfortable working on set. Candace's demos and class topics (as well as showing what is in her kit) really helped me to know what is expected of a makeup artist. Also, learning about proper sanitation techniques was very helpful and very important when it comes to working as an MUA. The homework assignments were fun and educational, and I found myself really looking forward to class each week. I signed up for the mentorship program and Candace is always very prompt and helpful in her responses, there have been a few times when I needed advice while on the job and she helped me a lot!”

“Taking classes at Atlanta Makeup Academy was exactly what I needed to launch my career in the makeup industry. Candace was very easy to learn from and she covered lots of information in a short amount of time. I would recommend AMA to anyone who is looking for professional makeup training they can feel confident about. “

“With makeup becoming more saturated with "Instagram -style" lessons, Candace reveals the different kinds of lessons and techniques needed for artists wanting to break into Television and Film. Her support and knowledge were pivotal for me, and now after completing the course I'm feeling confident and ready for my dream ahead.”
