Is this a State Certified Cosmetology School?
No, CMC Makeup School is NOT a cosmetology school and focuses exclusively on makeup education as well as portfolio development & career education. All instructors are professional Makeup Artists with years in the industry, who bring their knowledge & experience to the classroom & curriculum. Students receive a certificate of completion for each class taken, which enhances their portfolio, prepares them for jobs & makes them eligible for professional makeup artist discounts & memberships. However, there is no standard licensing regulation for make-up artists, so students will still need to communicate with their respective state authority for information on business licensing if they wish to offer more than makeup in the Beauty industry.
Can I get a discount if I bring my own makeup? For the sake of unity & flow in completing CMC’s tightly planned curriculums, we do not allow separate makeup kits in the classes. After my deposit is paid, when is the balance due?
To hold your seat you must put down a deposit, which is taken out of the total class price. The balance is then due the first day of class. CMC accepts cash, checks, cashier’s checks, money orders, Visa, Master Card, Discover and American Express only.
