"When I first started the program with Diane, I was working at the makeup counter wanting to take my makeup career to the next level. She helped me narrow down the types of makeup I was most interested in and helped give me the steps on where to start. I was able to map out my goals in a way that gave me the confidence to achieve them. I have taken many makeup classes around the nation and none compare the information I learned from her. Diane doesn’t just teach you how to do prettier makeup, she teaches you how to a better well rounded artist that will help your skills and set etiquette stand out from the crowd. She prepares you for success like no one else does. I wish I had taken her class so much sooner! If you are ready to make the commitment to yourself and your career, this program is perfect for you! - Teresa L

"It never ceases to amaze me what an influence Diane has been on my artistry in such a short time. I love the way she approaches each client differently. Plus, as a makeup artist the business side of things can get away from you. It's not what you're focused on. Working with Diane has expanded my knowledge of the business side of my career; contracts, invoicing, simple business communication skills that are essential to succeed in my career. Thank you Diane - I am a stronger makeup artist because of you!" - Linda W

"Diane has been my mentor since the start of my career- going on 11 years! She's taught me more than just makeup skills, she has taught me how to be a professional in the industry; listening to my clients and ensuring that their beauty goals are my number one priority". - Andrea S
