Build Your Own Professional Profile

A professional website is a crucial networking tool for any makeup artist, and we’ve made creating one simple! Our easy-to-use website builder allows you to create and customize your own professional website where you can list your services, photos of your past work, contact details, client testimonials, and more.

Once you have it all set up and to your liking you can choose to “enable” your profile, making it visible in our database of professionals. This free marketing tool is available to you even after you graduate, and will help you get your name out there!
