Makeup Forum – “Shop Talk”

At MTA, as part of our commitment to helping professional makeup artists grow as freelancers and business owners, we’re pleased to offer “Shop Talk.” These are 90-minute forums that are held on the first Wednesday of every other month, at the Makeup Training Academy in Dallas. They’re a great resource for makeup artists who want to launch their careers, build their businesses, and/or network with other professionals. The cost is just $20 per workshop, and topics throughout the year cover different aspects of the makeup artistry business, including: marketing, setting rates, branding, insurance, promotion, etiquette, and more. All times are 10-11:30 unless otherwise noted.
