I currently am taking the Master program at Make-up Designory. What drove me to attend this school out of the many other make-up schools is the fact that aside from teaching you the techniques required to creating the perfect make up/special fx make on a person is that they also teach you the business side of the industry. Knowing how to get into the industry and the materials and knowledge required to progress is one of their main priorities. I love the fact that they bring in special speakers who have in been in the industry for over 40+ years and who are well know and have won academy awards over the years come to our school and share their knowledge/ advice. They also take the time to look through students portfolios and critique them in a way that will help your chances at possibly getting a better job opportunity. As far as the workload I would say its average. Having homework helps us practice and improve our skills as a make-up artist. The facility is awesome! There is a room for each course and they have all the materials needed for us to succeed. They have a sculpture room, hair room, photography room and a library with a lot of information on how to improve your skills. The ultimate goal of the school is to help all their students succeed and become who they want to become. They have all the equipment and supplies that you will ever need.
