Speshal Love Valdez

Makeup By Speshal

Love Love Love Terri and the Makeup Training Academy!! I really feel like I’m leaving here with the technical,creative,and business sides of the makeup industry. I came in to Level 1 in the summer knowing nothing about properly applying makeup and leaving Level 2 feeling really confident in myself and my work. I’m so glad that I made the choice to study with her! She’s so nice and the studio is too cute. If I could do it over I would!

No. In Texas, Makeup Artists are not required to be licensed. MTA is geared solely towards providing the skills that a Professional Makeup Artist needs to develop in order to succeed. Our proprietor, Terri Tomlinson, has been a working Makeup Artist for over 30 years with a very distinguished resume. All guest lecturers are also Professional Makeup Artists with lengthy pedigrees as well.

Students receive a certificate of completion for each class taken. Completed classes from MTA enhance your portfolio, includes eligibility for many professional discounts , and helps prepare you for work in the industry.

Since there is no standard licensing regulation for make-up artists in most states, each student will still need to communicate with their respective state authority for information on business licensing if they wish to offer more than freelance Makeup Artistry in the Beauty industry.
