What makes studio crush different?

The Program

Studio Crush School of Makeup is Georgia’s premier State Authorized makeup school.

Studio Crush offers an intensive ten-week Makeup Artistry program that launches students directly into the beauty business. Students essentially begin working in the industry in school while we equip them with the skills and knowledge they need become a working makeup artist. Students get VIP access to working with talented teams that would otherwise take years, and they graduate not only with a certificate, but with beautiful images for their portfolios. Our founder, industry veteran Rob Brinson, believes that a network and portfolio are what truly open doors for new industry creatives. Check out what our grads have to say about the program.

What is State Authorization?

Studio Crush is authorized by the Georgia Nonpublic Postsecondary Education Commission, which means we meet state requirements to offer a Makeup Artistry certificate program in Georgia. Students and graduates have added peace of mind knowing Studio Crush is held to high standards.

I moved to Atlanta to attend Studio Crush, not knowing if I would stay in the area. Now two years later I am still in the area working as a Makeup Artist and I don’t think it would have been possible without the opportunities and connections I made at Studio Crush.
