What's New in Atlanta?

Maquillage Makeup Academy has just left our first huge mark in the Atlanta market! We launched our Maquillage Pleiades Lipstick line, as well as our customized palettes that we created with Inglot Cosmetics at The Makeup Show - Atlanta!

During this trip we met some amazingly talented models, designers, photographers and makeup artists! At our booth, Mireille Bertrand and Curtis William Forman created some fabulous Avant Garde makeup that demonstrated the quality of Inglot Cosmetics as well as our Pleiades Lipstick line!

Our demo wouldn't have been possible without the help of new friends:

·         Designer: Stephen Kelly

·         Photographer: Eliot Xavier

·         Hair Design: Curtis William Foreman

·         The Miles Agency for providing models!

The quality of these images is the same quality that we provide for our students while they're studying at Maquillage Makeup Academy. We work hard to book models and photographers on a weekly basis to ensure that our students leave with a strong portfolio. We go above and beyond for our students so that they have every chance of being a successful working makeup artist after completing our program. This is something that we take great pride in and that no other makeup school is offering!
