Finding models for practice is done by the students; the Institute also has a registry of models available to our students. The school’s education plan, the ratio of teachers to assistants to students and our modern premises also contribute to the high calibre of our education. Make Up Institute accepts a limited amount of students every school term. The Institute’s premises are approximately 260 sqm.


Makeup as a Profession

Most of the information we get today comes from visual media like television, the internet, films, newspapers, and magazines. The visual media has increased tremendously in the last few years due to the world’s ever-increasing technology. For makeup artists, this means more work and opportunities. Makeup as a profession is divided into different specialities which also give exclusive chances for work.




During the last weeks of the course, the Master Makeup Artist students take their final exam. The students are working with a professional photographer and create a complete look of  5 different models with both makeup, hairstyling and styling.  That results in a portfolio with 50 digital pictures which the students get at the end of the course together with the international Master certificates. These portfolios typically prove very useful for makeup artists at job interviews.


Internship days are an obligation during education. The number of internships depends on which of the education you attend. The school arranges internships of various kinds.
That can be makeup and hairstyling for private people, film, Tv production, fairs, fashion show, where students get to test their new skills in real life. This is a very important part of our teaching as it provides an opportunity to try out the "real life" as a makeup artist or hairstylist in a safe way.

During the last weeks of the course, the Master Makeup Artist students take their final exam. The students are working with a You that participate in of our professional makeup artist programs will receive  a makeup bag with products with a Value 25,000 - 45 000 SEK as a gift from Make Up Institute.

It is a lot of products that you will get, but from experience we know that our students buy more material during the course.
