QC Makeup Academy provides you with the skills you’ll need to start your career as a professional makeup artist.
Your course contains a number of theoretical and practical assignments that prepare you for real-world makeup clients!
Makeup Artistry Skills
Your assignments will help you to build a range of makeup artistry skills and knowledge:
Practical Makeup Applications
Complete full-face makeup applications or individual makeup techniques on friends and family members. You’ll have specific guidelines on taking and submitting photos of your work for your tutor to evaluate technique, symmetry, creativity, and other important factors that will make you a great artist.
Case studies are where you’ll get a chance to think like a professional makeup artist. You’ll be given a variety of mock makeup clients and you’ll be asked to determine the most appropriate makeup application for the client. Your tutor will evaluate your choices based on the client’s wishes and your expert recommendations!
The models you use for your assignments (usually friends and family members) will be provided with a feedback form they’ll use to evaluate your makeup application, including your professionalism. To get the most out of your training, QC recommends using a variety of models!
Test your makeup knowledge with quizzes! You’ll learn more in your online courses with a variety of quizzes, including true/false and multiple choice.
If you wish, you can learn how to start your own business as a makeup artist. These optional assignments walk you through choosing a business name, creating a business plan, setting up your own makeup business, and promoting your services.
Virtual Makeup Boutique
Use QC’s custom simulation tool to create digital makeup looks on virtual models. This allows you to practice your color selection on models of all skin tones.

Makeup Assignment Review & Grading
Once you have submitted all assignments from a unit of your online makeup course, your tutor will review your work.
- Your tutor will take the time to grade each assignment, and you’ll receive a letter grade for the unit.
- You’ll be provided with audio feedback from your tutor where you’ll hear about what you did well and the areas where you need to improve. Keep this feedback in mind as you continue to the next unit of your course!
For a great example of how a tutor’s audio feedback helped a QC student improve her work, check out this post on the Beauty Buzz!
“I was so curious about how everything worked at QC Makeup Academy and after finishing my first unit, I received an audio recording from Nathan Johnson where he gave me feedback on the entire unit I completed. Nathan Johnson is someone to truly admire. Do not forget to request him for your classes!”Brianna BallardoMaster Makeup Artistry Student
