I want to thank you so much for all you have done for me. It has been a life-changing experience.


I have done about 10 photoshoots and I have 10 more scheduled. That is with one photographer, I am now working on 3 more photographers who want me to work with them. Also, about 6 models, so I am on a roll!

I have a couple of movie offers and a few magazines, so I cannot complain. I am expanding my career very fast and enjoying every minute.

Professional Makeup Artist with Model


I am a photographer trying to build a stronger headshot and personal branding portfolio. I realize how important makeup is for this genre. What puzzled me in the past is that I makeup appeared to be perfect under naked eyes would look awful on camera. I was researching makeup courses that could teach me photography makeup. I am so glad I found Dawn! Her 20 hours course was perfect for what I need. Not only I learned how different lighting conditions affect the makeup and portrait results, I also learned all the different combinations of face/eye/mouth shapes. It is very eye opening. Knowledge is power! I feel much more confident after the course. Thank you Dawn!

Dawn offers the best class around. It is unbelievable how much I learned in just one week. Dawn's class taught me the proper application of makeup for any setting and greatly improved my skill set.


Also, the sanitation that Dawn teaches is unparalleled in the industry, demonstrating her professional methods and attitudes to the beauty industry.


Further, as if that wasn't enough, the amount of professional cosmetics that I received with my tuition has paid for the class and more!

I was thrilled with the makeup class I recently completed and honored to have been taught by Dawn herself. Dawn, your energy, passion, and enthusiasm for makeup is infectious. Thank you, for passing this on to me!

I learned so much in a relatively short period of time, not only about the science of makeup and flawless application but also the business side of makeup and insider know-how that are missing from my vast collection of makeup books.


I am so excited about my makeup career! I had my first professional photoshoot last night just 4 days after completing the program. You certainly exceeded my expectations, especially with the aftercare program returning my 'unsociable hour' call the night before to answer my concerns about night lighting for my first shoot. You helped me prepare and it turned out great! It would never have happened without you and the new set of skills Dawn provided me with.


Thank you for showing me the endless possibilities available to makeup artists who know the science behind it.
