I traveled all the way from Washington D.C. to enroll in AMA’s summer course & it was the best decision I made. I am SO satisfied with all of the knowledge I learned. I didn’t just get lessons on makeup application but the business side of the industry (which has helped so much!!). Once you graduate, you’re still apart of the family. I’ve been back twice for master classes held by AMA to continue my education and sharpen my skills. So much love for this school.

Just an amazing experience. My instructors pushed me to my best potential and have guided me through the business end of makeup artistry, Which is just as significant as the makeup application itself! Xio is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. She is extremely busy, but will always take the time out of her day to answer messages from her current/graduated students. The level of professionalism in AMA is unlike any other school I toured. I wish I can stay an AMA student forever. We become a little family… I legit look forward to class every weekend. Juliette is a makeup god, I’m convinced! And it is wonderful that I was trained in her created curriculum.

I started AMA on September 17th and I just graduated 2 weekends ago. In the short amount of time I was there, I learned so much. Not just about makeup application but about the beauty industry itself and how to become successful in your passion and career as a makeup artist and how to stand out in what has become such a competitive field. I can not thank the school and my teachers enough for working with me and helping me better myself as a makeup artist. They helped me become more confident in myself and my talent / skills. I will 100% be returning back very soon! This is now my second home, my escape, and everyone there has became like my second family. I can’t wait to walk back through those doors! I miss it already xo.. Thank you, AMA, for everything! <3 See you soon.
