        Student Work



        I started as a student at Artists Within in September 2018 and now have completed the Basic Makeup Diploma, Advanced Makeup Diploma, SFX Diploma, and the Hair diploma. All of my teachers were absolutely incredible and I feel beyond prepared to work in the industry. The kits received with each course have included everything someone needs to start out as a makeup artist with and are worth their price and include extremely high quality products that I continue to use on myself and clients everyday. Artists Within have also provided me with incredible opportunities to work on jobs for Breakfast Television, Westjet Magazine, Avenue Magazine, and many more. I am so incredibly impressed and pleased with the professionalism and education quality of the school and recommend them to anyone who would like to get into the makeup industry. Thank you Tara, Scarlett, Erica, Ashton and Shantel for every thing you all have helped me achieve
