Passionate about makeup? Interested in expanded your skill set? Makeup At THE TEMPLE is the answer!
In her role as a Learning Leader at THE TEMPLE, Alice Ness is also the resident expert of the advanced make-up artistry or MAT (Makeup At THE TEMPLE) program. As a freelance makeup artist and hair stylist herself for commercial, editorial, portrait and fashion clients, Ness says this program is designed for anyone wanting to become a professional make up artist.
“I think it’s an absolute fantastic opportunity because it gives them the education needed to be in the industry,” Ness said. “It really is designed to give them skills that make them more marketable.’’
The MAT program, is broken up into six classes or 96 hours of learning and includes everything needed to be certified in all aspects of make up application and technique.
The classes can be taken individually or as a series, and include: Fashion Pro, Bridal Pro, Editorial Pro, Studio Pro, Camouflage pro, and On-set pro.
“If you get certified in all six, it makes you much more marketable. And your earning potential, for example, in the bridal world (1-2 weddings) during peak time (Summer) could be $400-1000 in a weekend,” added Ness, who is a 2009 Temple graduate.
Most recently, Temple graduate Marti Blattenberger, certified through the MAT program and has
been invited to be a National Educator for Ultimate Face.
MAT is not only available to Temple students, but anyone in the cosmetology industry. For more information please visit the MAT website and Facebook page.
