I opened the Academy of Cosmetic Arts in 1990 which was was the first and only Makeup Artist Training School in the Bay Area. The Workshops are listed as #1 in ‘Makeup Artist Magazine’. I offer Professional training and Certification for the Freelance Makeup Artist. I’ve trained aspiring Makeup Artists for jobs on my crew which includes training in Fashion and Commercial Print Work, Fashion Show, Theater, Film and Bridal Makeup which includes airbrush, lash application, brow shaping, contouring and highlighting with all the modern techniques and tricks of the trade. I also offer private one on one training for the average person who just wants a new look and to update their cosmetic kit.

These classes are held at the Academy of Cosmetic Arts or at the convenience of your home.

I offer advice and techniques used in the industry. I also offer internships upon availability. Please check out the website for application at Academyofcosmeticarts.Com

Rose is that best in her field. She’s very knowledgeable and professional. She really can create one of a kind look with big hair and make up. I had privilege to be a model once and also watch her teachings... she’s so detail oriented and a perfectionist. You want to learn about make up and hair? Come over and learn from the best in the industry!
