The revolution for make up artists in Utah begins now.



War Paint Makeup Academy is the newest revolution in professional make up training, development and education in the state of Utah. Many things set us apart from the rest, inevitably setting you apart from the average ‘makeup artist’ upon graduation. We don’t believe in training you on JUST one brand, one philosophy or one style. We want you to be well rounded and have all of the education and knowledge that is required to be set apart as an industry leader, so you can be proficient and adapt to the variety of expertise and situations that the fashion and beauty industry demands.

To do this, you will begin your education with the solid foundation of globally recognized curriculum and workbooks from a top makeup school based in LA and NYC. We then build your skill sets from there with a much more in-depth understanding of advanced artistry concepts and techniques. War Paint will utilize some of the most extensive and unbiased product knowledge and brand training available anywhere in the market, solidified by hands-on coaching and instruction that is customized to every individual student by some of the top recognized artists in the state. Also included in your education will be philosophies and methods from the top brands and educators from around the world. We have partnered  with weekly guest speakers and guest artists that are masters in their area of expertise to offer different styles and perspectives that reach all learning styles and personalities. We will also focus on the specialization of bridal makeup, runway, commercial, tv/print/film, avant guard and a photoshoot lab designed to make you proficient in concept design.

 Alongside our regular curriculum, field trips to local talent agencies, cosmetic factories and photography studios will be provided to help you understand where your true passion may fall within the industry. Intimate guidance, direction and mentoring is sealed with a promise to assist any student that completes our program with industry relevant job coaching and placement assistance for life! Because we care. We will provide industry professionals that can carry the torch. We want you to become the best. We want you to know and understand your goals and help you do whatever it takes to achieve them. We want you to take what we give you, and become better than us. We are excited to teach you all that we know, and for you to then open the door to even more endless possibilities for your future.
