About this pro

Learn what you want, when you want,
in a unique, private studio with professional models.

Whether you are a novice makeup junkie that just wants to learn a few things, a professional that wants to take your career to a new level, or  someone that aspires to be a professional makeup artist in retail, bridal, print, fashion, red carpet, TV or film – a private, customized program with master makeup artist Margaret Kimura could be the right choice for you.


  • Do you need a flexible schedule?
  • Does your budget restrict you from taking a 3-6 month makeup program? (Lessons starting at $350)
  • Or do you just prefer the extra attention that a one-on-one program allows.


Build your portfolio as you work: Anyone that tells you, you don’t need a portfolio is saying that because they can’t offer you one.   A portfolio is vital to getting hired, building your Instagram and social networking, and starting your professional career.   Why?  How else can potential employers know who they are hiring if you don’t have a portfolio.

    Going to MKC School was the best choice of my life… I LOVED IT!

  • Raelene

    MKC was amazing! It really taught me a lot not only about makeup but about myself. I feel it has really made me mature and it was definitely worth the drive.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

When working with a new student, we will first work to see if our school is a good fit for the new student.  Once we have established the fit, we customize the curriculum to the experience and goals of our new student.   At that time we establish a cost and schedule that fits our students budget and busy schedule. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
