THE ARTISTS WITHIN IMPACT

Rayshel Ludwar

Artists Within Graduate

I attended Artists Within Makeup Academy for the Virtual Makeup Diploma, Airbrushing, Advanced and Special FX programs. All of the programs teach more than just makeup as well. You will learn about the business side, the industry you are wanting to go in to and how to properly market yourself to gain employment. After completing all of these programs I felt ready to step in to the industry with full confidence in the new skills I have learned. I learned a lot from these wonderful instructors (yes there is a lot to learn! trust me! ) and all the instructors/staff are easily approachable and eager to help you perfect your techniques. I am happy to say that I was able to gain employment right out of school because of the skills I was able to showcase that I learned here at AW. I would highly recommend this school if you are looking for a successful career in any makeup path you are choosing to take! <3

Editor-In-Chief, Avenue Magazine

At Avenue magazine we have worked with Artists Within makeup artists for years on fashion and editorial photo shoots. The artists are always professional, pleasant and talented, which is why we go back to them year over year. I've also been so personally impressed with the quality of the makeup that the artists frequently used from their own AW03 collection that I started using it myself and now it's almost the only line I use.

Online certificate students have the option to purchase our custom curated AW03 Pro Makeup Kits which contain all you need to take the course and get started in the insdustry.

  • What's the difference between an Award, Certificate & Diploma?

    Awards, certificates, and diplomas are levels of accreditation. A diploma is the highest accreditation offered for makeup artistry, where awards and certificates are great for beginners or add-ons to similar trades such as esthetics. Our award and certificate courses offer a more self-study approach, whereas diploma programs require more accountability and assessment from your instructor.
