Make Up Institute Stockholm
Make Up Institute is one of Europe’s leading makeup academies. Students from all over the world come here to be educated as Master Makeup Artists, Makeup Artists, Hairstylists and Makeup Artist Instructors. The Institute is located in Stockholm, Sweden. Make Up Institute can if necessary, organise accommodation for students who are not local. Spaces, however, are limited and operated in a first come, first served system.
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.
Make Up Institute’s instructors are all active professional makeup artists and hairstylists with years of experience in all categories of makeup and hair. We set high standards on experience, competence and teaching ability.
