Traveling Around Portland

We love living and having our school in Portland, Oregon. The Pacific Northwest is such a creative and inspiring environment for makeup artistry…the beautiful landscapes, lush greenery, mountains, rivers, food, art and a whole lot more. Whether you are just visiting, thinking about enrolling in one or more classes or programs, or already live here…we hope you can take some time to stop by and see us. Makeup artistry is our passion!
