Makeup artistry is an integral part of our esthetics curriculum. During the 600 hour esthetics training, students learn the fundamentals of makeup application, advanced theory, and fantasy makeup. Those who desire a Master’s Degree equivalent in makeup may continue their training in the CIDESCO program.
Combining theoretical knowledge and hands-on experience, this course puts you on your way to a successful career in skin care.
Similar to a Master’s degree in academics, the CIDESCO certification is the most prestigious diploma in Esthiology. Recognized worldwide, the CIDESCO diploma tells both prospective employers and clients that the recipient is a member of an elite group committed to the highest standards in our industry and has undergone extensive hands-on training with top instructors in the field.
