Are you talking about the full Diploma of Makeup Artistry?? or the 6 week cert course?? I have had a flatty who got some awesome work experience at Warner Bros film studio on the Gold Coast and also at the RAQ Fashion Awards (Brissy’s Fashion week awards). She made some priceless contacts which all said would have gladly employed her again. I guess it could go either way
I cant really justify almost $10,000 PLUS makeup brushes (at least another $400-500) AND supplies (all the primers, creams, AND a full hairdressers kit AS WELL) which of course you have to purchase from Napoleon (cant supply your own). A bit of a strategic marketing plan if you ask me… :rollthoseeyes:
Still love their make up tho. I’m happy to go and have my makeup done by those girls and buy products I needed to get anyways and have them teach me all their tricks for free (almost)!! :chuckle: :clapping:
Thanks heaps for the site Daisy. I will definitely have to check it out. :spin: I’m going to go along to their open day in May and see if it really is as dodgy as I’m guessing. :makeup:
As far as I know some of the girls did the Certificate and some did the Diploma (most of them were from another well known Australian makeup forum - I also did a Google search and was surprised by how many websites also had the same information).
I guess like you say, it can go either way. My opinion is just based on the fact that I haven’t heard any good reports (apart from your friend’s) so I know I wouldn’t do the course. I think you’d be better off spending $10,000 on a different makeup course (after searching around on Google there are quite a few in Sydney that look tempting!). For that price you could do a much more in depth course and be taught all sorts of interesting makeup skills like period, aging, fantasy characters and how to make ‘movie monsters’ etc.
I haven’t used Napoleon makeup yet, but I’m really keen to try it! Awesome colour range, and really affordable - sounds good!
