QC Student Krystal

Krystle Clarkson

Master Makeup Artistry, Pro Makeup Workshop and Special FX Makeup

“I have recently started my Diploma of Screen and Media Makeup here in Melbourne. I want to work on a set for film and TV, so this diploma will help me, along with my QC qualifications. What I wanted and needed to tell you guys is this… Take in everything our tutors here at QC tell and teach us! I have the biggest advantage in my new class because of how and what I’ve learned with QC. Everything being taught at my new school is something Nathan has already taught me. My teacher and fellow classmates have commented on the level of my skills. When I told my teacher I only picked up my first makeup brush 7 months ago, she was in absolute shock. And that is all thanks to QC Makeup Academy. So please take your time and learn everything QC has to offer, from the tutors to the students in the Virtual Classroom…. it truly is the best place to become a successful artist. Thank you so much QC Makeup Academy and thank you to my tutor, Nathan Johnson!”

Morgan Appleton

Master Makeup Artistry & Pro Makeup Workshop

“Before I enrolled in my course, I had been checking the school out for a few months. I never saw myself as the type of girl to go off to college for 4 years to become a teacher or a doctor or a lawyer. It all just sounded so boring! So when I found out that I could train to be a makeup artist and follow my true passion all from the comfort of my own home and at my own pace, I was thrilled! I absolutely loved the Master Makeup Artistry course, and there’s really nothing I would have changed about it. I loved that I could do everything on my own time and I loved how even though I was doing the work from home, it still felt like I was connected to the school and in an educational environment! I loved the fact that I could get one-on-one feedback from my amazing tutor, Pat, as well. She is so sweet and she encouraged me so much! I loved working with her!”

Annette Silvestre

Master Makeup Artistry, Special FX & Portfolio Development

“I am currently taking the Master Makeup Artistry course & portfolio development with Nathan as well as the special effects makeup course with Michele. I’m extremely happy with this school. This started with the arrival of my starter kit. All my course materials printed in books, as well as online, palettes, brush set/everything else, was way more than I expected! Everything is great quality. I like that I can work at my own pace & have all the information I need to get everything done. I’ll have to admit that the student site can be a little confusing at first but with proper use of the course guides, it’s easy to know your way within each unit. The school is great- I had emailed them to request a specific tutor & they had quickly changed my tutor without question after me signing up for my courses. I’m excited to be doing these courses with QC, these courses have opened me up to a world of makeup for photography/theatre within my small community & I’m fortunate to have these opportunities to practice on all different models. Joining QC Makeup Academy is the best thing I have ever done for myself. I will be continuing education with QC for airbrush & pro makeup courses after I am done the 3 I’m working on now. My dream is to do makeup for TV & Film. I never thought it would be possible being from a small town & a mom of two working part-time already. QC Makeup academy makes this possible!”

Megan Edwards

Master Makeup Artistry & Pro Makeup Workshop

“I’ve learned so much, and it’s so convenient. Love it! I highly recommend it to anyone interested in becoming a makeup artist. I’m currently on Unit C in the Master Makeup course and can’t wait to continue on. The supplies given are very good quality. The videos and text given are so helpful and knowledgeable.”

“I have finally graduated since my review above and my review hasn’t changed. The tutors’ critiques and advice helped so much to push me to become a better makeup artist. They supply you with so much knowledge and break down the business side of it. So, what are you waiting for? Follow your dreams like I did. Sign up today!”

Master Makeup Artistry Graduate

“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 have joined Sephora as a Color Consultant.”

Makeup Artistry & Portfolio Development Graduate

“My name is Lydsie Bechard. I live in Mauritius and work full time as a Secretary and part-time as a Freelance Makeup Artist. I’m also a mother of 3 boys. I love makeup. I’m hoping to grow my clientele a bit more the coming year so that one day I can live out my dream of becoming a full-time makeup artist.”
