Student Success

Discover the success stories of our students and graduates, and take a glimpse at the stunning makeup looks crafted by our talented students.

We see great work every day and want to share and inspire other MUAs to perfect their craft. Students with exceptional performance also have the opportunity to become QC Makeup Academy Ambassadors!

QC takes you right back to basics, I think that’s really important. It’s the basic skills that everything comes back to and it’s good to remind yourself of these. The recorded feedback was great, Nathan picked up on everything and you really do learn from what he says.

Joining QC Makeup Academy is the best thing I have ever done for myself. 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!

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.

My tutor, Nathan Johnson, was awesome! I felt like he definitely challenged me. I started taking my time more, especially towards the end of the last modules as I wanted them to be perfect. That’s a good thing about QC – you can take your time!
