Empowering Makeup Artists for Global Success: Blanche Macdonald’s International Makeup Studio

In the world of makeup artistry, few names carry as much prestige and influence as Blanche Macdonald. Established in 1960, Blanche Macdonald has become synonymous with excellence in makeup education, and its International Makeup Studio is a testament to the school’s commitment to providing top-notch training and nurturing creative talent. With a reputation for producing industry-leading makeup artists, the International Makeup Studio is a hub of inspiration and innovation, setting the bar for makeup education worldwide.

The International Makeup Studio is renowned for its comprehensive and industry-driven curriculum. The program covers a range of makeup techniques, from beauty and fashion makeup to special effects and prosthetics. Students are exposed to diverse skills, allowing them to explore their creativity and develop a well-rounded understanding of the art of makeup. Currently, the Studio offers two program options for international students: the International Makeup Diploma program and the International Makeup Essentials Certificate program. 

International Makeup Studio Diploma Program

The International Makeup Studio Diploma program at Blanche Macdonald is designed to provide students with a solid foundation in makeup artistry while equipping them with the skills and knowledge necessary to thrive in the global beauty industry. The program goes beyond basic techniques and explores the latest trends, techniques, and products, ensuring that students are up-to-date with the ever-changing landscape of the makeup world.

The program is divided into various modules, each focusing on a specific aspect of makeup artistry. Students learn the fundamentals of makeup application, including makeup artistry, bridal makeup, different forms of art and technology, fashion makeup, photography, airbrushing, cosmetic retailing and more. Specialized modules may cover topics like bridal makeup, special effects makeup, and editorial makeup, allowing students to develop expertise in different areas of the industry.

The program currently offers 12- or 24-week schedule options for a total of 400 hours:

  • 12-week schedule
    • Accelerated schedule from Monday to Friday
    • Total of 40 hours per week
    • Co-op placement is not available
  • 24-week schedule
    • 3 days per week
    • 20 hours per week
    • Co-op placement available for a six-month schedule

*Because the length of this program is six months or less, international students can enroll in the program with or without a Study Permit. For example, students who apply as Visitors (without a study permit) when coming to Canada are eligible to register for the program for either the three- or six-month schedules. Students with Study Permits have the option of working for a maximum of 20 hours per week, therefore able to apply for the program’s Co-Op Work Experience Program to gain work experience in the professional makeup industry if they are enrolled in the six-month option. 

International Makeup Essentials Certificate Program

The International Makeup Essentials Certificate program is designed for individuals who are passionate about makeup and seeking to develop fundamental skills in the field in a shorter period. The program caters to both beginners with no prior experience in makeup artistry and those looking to expand their existing knowledge and refine their techniques. This option is particularly suitable for international students who wish to learn more about makeup but are unable to commit to a longer program. 

The program includes hands-on classes that focus on makeup artistry, bridal makeup and bridal hair. Students will get to work with one another, using peers as models to practice applying makeup. 

The program currently offers 3.5- or 7-week schedule options for a total of 140 hours:

  • 3.5-week schedule
    • Accelerated schedule from Monday to Friday
    • 40 hours per week
    • Co-op placement is not available
  • 7-week schedule
    • 3 days per week 
    • 20 hours per week
    • Co-op placement is not available

*Because the length of this program is six months or less, international students can enroll in the program with or without a Study Permit. Students can apply as Visitors (without a study permit), on a Work Visa, or a Study Permit.
