Our Facilities

Our Location

The Art of Makeup School is conveniently located in the Southwest area of Portland, Oregon right on the border of Lake Oswego near the 5 Freeway and directly across the street from PCC – Sylvania Campus (Portland Community College).

This location allows students to get the best of both worlds! 

In Lake Oswego, enjoy a relaxing small town vibe and vibrant green forests. In Portland, enjoy a bustling city dynamic that’s bursting with creative inspiration. Both cities are full of stunning nature views, thriving shopping districts, delectable food and drink experiences  – the list of amenities goes on and on.

The school is also within a two hour drive of ocean beaches, year-round snow-covered mountains, deserts, and rain forests, making it easy to explore the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.

Portland is increasingly becoming a booming commercial, advertising, fashion, theater, and film production city. It’s an inspiring, colorful, and unique place that serves as a perfect backdrop to a creative career such as makeup artistry.

Makeup Artistry in Oregon

Professional makeup artists do not need a cosmetology license to work in Oregon. 

This wasn’t always the case, but founder Celena initiated Senate bills that removed the unnecessary restrictions and expanded their ability to charge for temporary hair styling
It’s one of the many reasons that Oregon is a popular choice for creative professionals, including those working in film.
