The Skin and Makeup Institute really is based, which is something that was clear very early on at the beginning of the class. In graduating and moving forward in my career as a Professional Makeup Artist, I’m confident, driven and ready to make myself, Jalia and the school extremely proud. Hold on – were going places y’all, thank you for everything! Best of luck to future students, know you have selected the best.”

The Skin and Makeup Institute was extremely considerate and understanding of my case. They allowed me to come back into the course a year and a half later. I believe everything happens for a reason. Had I not taken the course this year I wouldn’t have had Jalia as an instructor. She is amazing at what she does! She encourages us to ask questions and repeats herself just to make sure we get it. I have learned so much through her and because of her I feel 100% to go out into the real world and be great as a free – lance makeup artist. Thank you Skin and Makeup Institute and thank you Jalia!!!”

Simret Maekele
“The Skin & Makeup Institute of AZ is simply the best school for Aestheticians. The school has prepared me so well. I am ready to work without the need for any further training from my future employer. The school is extremely well organized, well structured, very serious about learning, very attentive to the needs of every student. I felt I was coached and guided at every junction. The school gives high importance to both theory and the practical or clinical aspect of learning. It imparted in me a scientific foundation and understanding of the reasons behind the clinical practice and at the same time it made sure that my practical was done to the utmost perfection with each client. It helped me analyze the skin condition of different clients, diagnose the problems correctly, make appropriate recommendations and work correctly on the client. Miss Jackie is a walking encyclopedia full of knowledge and what I really appreciated was she was so willing to share and impart in us as much knowledge as we could possibly grasp. Miss Jackie gave 110% every day, she held nothing back. The only limiting factor was our ability to learn and grasp, she gave everything she could give. I recommend The Skin & Makeup Institute to anyone that is seriously considering to be a great aesthetician. I can assure you; you will learn everything you need and more!”

Heather Starr
“I joined the program knowing absolutely nothing about skin. I left the program feeling confident that I can work in the industry with no problem! I loved my time at The Skin & Makeup Institute.

Alexa Russo
“To start out, I came to Arizona hoping to fulfill my passion of beauty and really hoping to get into the makeup industry. I’ve always loved makeup whether it was playing with it on myself, friends or family. When I found The Skin and Makeup Institute and realized it held both my interests. I was very excited to see myself from start to finish in both skin and makeup programs. Coming into Jalia’s class and learning that we would be going into the basics then eventually getting deeper, not only caught me by surprise on how I would be learning, but also how passionate she was in making sure we knew how to confidently do it ourselves. From the start I learned how much knowledge Jalia actually holds, not only because she is an instructor, but because she’s had so much experience in the industry that she shared with us. From taking us on field trips, to bringing in people from her team and in the business. I am confident in what I’ll need to perform my best and with the knowledge I now have. I not only want to thank the school but thank Jalia for filling me with the knowledge I need to be successful, pushing me out of our comfort zones and being someone you can not only trust with personal issues but being a mentor. This class has helped me grow in so many ways and for that I am grateful!”
