About Us

Make-up Stars branches are in Cape Town (Sea Point), Durban (Hillcrest), Gauteng (Northcliff and Centurion)

The techniques taught are current and only professional products are used.

What we have to say:

We run a boutique make-up school catering for those who have specific make-up needs. Our courses mainly focus on fashion and bridal make-up. We keep our classes small and our teaching techniques are detailed and concise.  For some classes models are required to practice the techniques (friends and family) we do have a database of students who sit as models for a nominal fee. We make suggestions regarding students make-up kits based on their specific needs.

Recap lessons are free within 3 months of doing your course at the branch where you studied.

We don’t encourage standard kits for each student, our students are free to choose what they would like to purchase for their make-up kit. We have hundreds of products for students to test and work with (All of which students get a discount on when purchasing) If our students would like our help with designing their make-up kit we are happy to assist and suggest suitable items that will suit the type of make-up they will be doing after their course.


We are not a crewing agency or styling agency and therefore don’t find work for students after the course. We do however provide detailed notes for students pertaining to the fashion industry (photo shoots) and bridal make-up industry, focusing on how to find work as a make-up artist. Part and Full Time Make-up Course students also receive lectures on this subject.

If Part Time and Full Time students would like to work in the retail cosmetics industry we offer assistance and provide a letter of recommendation. If students would like to arrange a portfolio shoot after their course we can assist with this (on request).

Our school tends to cater for self-sufficient people who want to train intensively in a reasonable length of time.
