Founded by Director and Passionate Makeup Artist Amy Nicole, CHICSTUDIOS NYC – School of Makeup Artistry opened its doors in New York City in 2009 as a professional school that educates aspiring and established artists. CHICSTUDIOS is best known for its one-of-a-kind 4-Week Professional Makeup Artistry Course that is carefully designed to teach the fundamentals and techniques of makeup artistry. The school boasts an array of award-winning instructors, intense and comprehensive curriculums and offers lasting relationships with the CHICSTUDIOS Community.
Our Mission Statement
CHICSTUDIOS NYC - School of Makeup Artistry is dedicated to providing our aspiring artists with the techniques and skills needed to succeed in the industry of makeup artistry, as well as creative, hands-on training, helpful career guidance and an extended invite into the CHICSTUDIOS Community.
At CHICSTUDIOS NYC – School of Makeup Artistry we believe in makeup as a true art and an ultimate passion that is embedded in every artist, hidden until inspired and then ready to be cultivated. We believe in intimate class settings with no more than ten students per instructor to ensure the best experience possible. And perhaps most importantly, we believe in our students and their ability to grow and succeed in the world of professional makeup artistry.
Why Choose CHICSTUDIOS?
First and foremost, our students and alumni receive the ultimate CHIC Treatment. Our experienced instructors and friendly staff offer our students a comprehensive, hands-on curriculum taught exclusively in intimate class settings and a studio environment. Our course kits consist of top-brand cosmetics, including MAC, Make Up For Ever, Smashbox to name a few. Upon enrollment, all students become a lasting member of the CHICSTUDIOSCommunity – a group of professional makeup artists with access to exclusive alumni events, makeup discounts, career counseling and up-to-date notifications of freelance opportunities.
Secondly, CHICSTUDIOSis the ONLY makeup artistry learning school of its kind. Unlike a cosmetology school, our 4-Week program allows students to focus solely on the fundamentals and techniques of makeup artistry. During the final 14 hours of the program, students can study a specific concentration, such as TV & Music Video Makeup, Period Makeup (1920s-Present) and Fashion & Runway Makeup. Upon completion of the program, students receive a “Certificate of Professional Makeup Artistry” and have an opportunity to participate in a professional photo shoot to begin their portfolios.
