QC’s Professional Makeup Certification

Upon graduation, you will receive your Certified International Makeup Professional certificate. Exclusive to QC, this trademarked certification allows you to use the CIMP designation after your name to prove to top industry clients that you are an educated, trained professional.

The CIMP certificate is recognized as an official certificate to work in the following top makeup industries:

  • Freelance
  • Bridal & Beauty
  • Sephora & other makeup beauty counters
  • Beauty salons

As with any job, while a certificate alone will not guarantee your success, it is a testament to your professional education. Employers and clients are more likely to regard you as a well-rounded and highly knowledgeable makeup artist. QC graduates of the Makeup Artistry course have gone on to run their own successful freelance makeup businesses and work for high-end brands like MAC, Benefit, Sephora,  and many others.

“Prior to taking courses at QC Academy, I didn't do well with makeup applications. I knew nothing about different skin types, eye shapes, skin tones, etc. Nathan Johnson (my mentor) equipped me with all the tools that I needed to pursue my career in makeup. Since my completion, I've serviced over 200 clients in freelancing all within 1 year and has joined Sephora as a Color Consultant.”
