Choose between daytime or evening makeup or even a custom look of your choice and learn how to recreate it with a step-by-step, in-depth tutorial.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I apply for a course?

To apply for a course, simply click on the ‘Apply Now‘ button next to the course information on this page and it will send you to an online application form. Select the course you are interested in and fill in your details. If there is availability for that program, we will reach out to you with a confirmation and further instructions for paying the tuition fees and securing your place.

On the occasion that a course is fully booked, we can hold on to your contact information to let you know the next available dates when that course will be taught again.

If you have any questions for us regarding our courses and their structure, please do not hesitate to contact us.

How do I pay for a course?

Tuition fees can be paid using PayPal, via bank transfer, or paid in person with cash or credit card. In the application form you will be asked to choose your preferred payment method. Once we confirm course availability, we will reach out to you with instructions on how to proceed with the payment to secure your place.

All course fees must be paid in full at least a month in advance before the course starts.

We do not accept bank checks.

Where do classes take place?

The classes take place at our makeup studio near Stavrou Avenue in Strovolos, Nicosia. Visit the ‘Contact‘ page to see our exact location on the map.

What language are the courses taught in?

Courses are taught in Greek with some key words and terminology in English where translation is not possible. If you do not speak Greek but wish to join one of our programs, you may contact us for private tutoring, or, if possible, we might be able to create another smaller group with English speakers and schedule new course dates.

How big are your classes?

We keep our classes fairly small at 8 students. Usually students take turns to practice on each other, which means that only 4 students are working simultaneously at any given time. This means you almost get one-on-one support and guidance from the educator during your training. We believe that this level of close attention is the detail that sets us apart from bigger schools, as you will never find yourself lost among a crowd and we can guarantee to provide you with enough time to answer your questions and closely mentor your learning journey.

Which makeup brands' products do students get to use during their training?

We want our students to have the opportunity to experiment with many different high end products and brands, from cult-classic beauty to popular new brands that are trending on social media. Some of the brands you can find at our studio include MAC Cosmetics, Chanel, Elizabeth Arden, Urban Decay, Bobbi Brown, Make Up For Ever, Huda Beauty, Too Faced, Benefit, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Illamasqua, Lime Crime and many more as we are always updating our list and adding new quality products.

Can lessons take place at my home?

No, we do not offer private lessons outside of our makeup studio. We find that the studio environment is ultimately the best for teaching, as it has the proper lighting and equipment required for makeup application and tutoring. Furthermore, at our studio you will be given access to a diverse and broad selection of makeup products and brands and it would simply be a pity not to have the opportunity to test and experiment with all of them.
