The Fast Track
Make Up First® School attracts students from all over the world! We also have local students who are unable to devote the time needed for the full, four weeks necessary to complete the two prerequisite Certificate Program courses. In order to accommodate those students, Consolidated Basic Makeup I and II is offered periodically throughout the calendar year. In the Consolidated Course, Basic Makeup I and Basic Makeup II, are combined and is taught over a consecutive five (5) eight-hour days.
