I wanted to take a moment to thank you for providing such a wonderful educational service for an aspiring makeup artist like myself. Your course afforded me the opportunity to learn a tremendous amount of information, techniques, and business practice within a time framework that was conducive to my work schedule. 

I was very impressed with all aspects of the course—both the content and practical, hands-on activities. The photoshoot was particularly enriching for me, and I am so pleased with the results! Dawn, you are very talented and have a "knack" for teaching. Your enthusiasm for your work is evident to your students, and I commend you on your accomplishments. You both make such an incredible team! 

I look forward to working with you in the future.

I completed Dawn's Class and I loved it! I didn't want to leave.

Dawn told me she wanted me to get back out there in the makeup business, I had quit working at a counter 2 months ago.

So, TODAY I applied online at a glamour shot type of place called STUDIO ONE. I am so excited my heart is just pounding away!!!!

Thanks so much! Have a great day!!

Hello Dawn!

I took your 40 hour Beauty Makeup Class. I can't tell you enough how much I loved the first class I took, I went home every day loving what I was doing and woke up every day with a smile on my face knowing that today would be just as exciting and educational as the last.


I have recommended your class to everyone I know who is thinking about becoming a makeup artist or just wants to learn about makeup in general.


The opportunities that I now have since the class are endless. I have been getting Weddings, movies, different photoshoots, and numerous department store job offers just from people seeing the pictures from my photoshoot from the class.


Your class provided me with the confidence and knowledge that I needed to do this and I thank you for that.

Best regards,

Natalie P.

I am so grateful to have found your class–you do not understand HOW MUCH it has done for me.


I have a different view of the makeup artist profession and you've made things so much clearer for me to move on and succeed in what I truly enjoy!

Again, a MILLION thanks to both of you and lots of luck in the future. I would consider your classes A MUST for all aspiring makeup artists.

I wanted to take some time out to share what a great experience I had in the 40-hour course.

From someone who has been in the industry and working behind the camera for 15 years, I never thought that makeup training was something I would have pursued. I had a great time learning the theory behind proper makeup techniques and application.

Dawn, I am pleased with your professionalism and level of experience. Your positive attitude is inspiring for all.

I highly recommend your class to anyone who is considering a career in the field of makeup artistry. 


Thank you again!

Dawn, you are so inspiring and amazing. The class was really enjoyable and all the people were great, made me feel at home.

I learned so much, much knowledge about makeup and applying it.

Dawn, again thank you! You are incredible and inspiring. You have given me the confidence and willpower to do what I want to do. I am blessed to have been part of the course.

You are truly an Angel,

Thank you again.

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.

Hello Dawn,

I wanted to send an email as a thank you for guiding me through your cosmetic journey. I originally enrolled in your class due to a referral and mainly because I felt that I needed to enhance my cosmetic ability to succeed not only as a freelancer but as a full-time makeup artist.

I am grateful that I chose you as my guide.

You were very informative and detailed as you explained your knowledge of the beauty industry. Since I was semi-experienced in my history,


I can now say that I feel confident to attend the beauty industry as a "Makeup Artist", and I can thank you for that.

Sincerely and best regards,

Antara (Annie) B.

Dear Dawn and Staff,

I want to say thank you, for all the wonderful things you have taught me. It only took 40 hours, but I have learned so much. I was nervous at first, I didn't know what to expect. But the moment I walked in, I felt at home and welcomed by you.


That's when I thought to myself, I finally found what I have been looking for. This is the place that I needed to be.


You are an amazing person, not only for your talent, but for who you are. I admire you so much, you followed your heart, your dream, like no one I have ever met before. Thank you for sharing your amazing talent with me and all the people lucky enough to take any of your courses. It took away with me a new look at makeup, amazing friends, and a place that I would love to return to, to advance my skill. You introduced us to amazing talents as well.

Makeup is full of amazing, different opportunities. I am grateful to have met you and have taken this class & I have made great new friends.

Thank You, for everything.

Hi Dawn,

I just arrived home from the week of training!


I just wanted to let you know how grateful I am for this opportunity. This information is not something that I could have found anywhere else.

I'll keep you posted on my progress.

Dear Dawn,

Hello! I took the makeup class and I just wanted to take the time and tell you how amazing your class was.

Your theory, lectures, and rules were incredible! I see everything in a new light now! Literally! The rest of the instructors were also full of invaluable information and so willing to share their secrets with all of us! It was all very exhilarating, fun, and extremely educational!


Thank you for giving me the tools I need to be more confident in myself, more certain on how to apply makeup in different situations, and how to market myself better than any other makeup artist out there (that didn't attend your classes, of course)!


Your program is the best and that is why I have already referred a few ladies your way! Thank you for everything! Keep in touch if you can!


Best of luck with everything, you are working nonstop to achieve!

Hi Dawn,

I took the 40-hour program. Well, after the program I decided to start my own business Subtle Elegance and I am doing bridal makeup and a few other things as well. I had shirts made, business cards, and brochures, and now I am marketing myself. I am going to be doing bridal makeup for a hair salon near where I live, along with traveling to their houses for bridal parties.


So everything is going well, and things are happening so fast for me. I am really happy that I took this class and you guys were so nice and supportive. Also, if you ever need an extra hand I am always willing to help and also learn from you.


Talk to you soon!!

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!



Chelise A.

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.
