Private Classes with Master Makeup Artist Margaret Kimura

Learn what you want, when you want,
in a unique, private studio with professional models.

Whether you are a novice makeup junkie that just wants to learn a few things, a professional that wants to take your career to a new level, or  someone that aspires to be a professional makeup artist in retail, bridal, print, fashion, red carpet, TV or film – a private, customized program with master makeup artist Margaret Kimura could be the right choice for you.

*FREE PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP KIT ($2000 Value)

  • Do you need a flexible schedule?
  • Does your budget restrict you from taking a 3-6 month makeup program? (Lessons starting at $350)
  • Or do you just prefer the extra attention that a one-on-one program allows.

*FREE ONLINE PORTFOLIO ($1500 Value)

Build your portfolio as you work: Anyone that tells you, you don’t need a portfolio is saying that because they can’t offer you one.   A portfolio is vital to getting hired, building your Instagram and social networking, and starting your professional career.   Why?  How else can potential employers know who they are hiring if you don’t have a portfolio.
