10 Facts About EI Makeup School

Special Effects MakeupWe’ve come up with a list of 10 fun and interesting facts, because you may or may not be familiar with EI makeup school. This list is an introductory for anyone who is interested in attending our school, and where you can find more information about what we have to offer our students.

Having just one location ensures that we offer students the best education from experienced instructors who are currently working in the industry.

10. Students can find guidance, counseling and help from our Career Services department. Keeping open communications with their specialist, is highly encouraged. It’s best for students to discuss their future career goals with an expert, in order to make the most of their career.

As some of you already know, EI has recently moved to a new Hollywood location and we’re loving it! Everything has turned out beautifully and the Unicorns are fitting in just fine. (Not really, the Unicorns think the Monsters are too scary.)

Our new location has been in the works for some time now because relocating a school isn’t easy. There was a lot of planning, designing, updating and improving that had to be done in order to declare our school “fully operational” and ready to serve students. The final design is based on efficiency, comfort, inspiration and the flow of creative energy.

We love to give private tours of our new school – which is pretty much just a whopping 20,000 square foot playground for makeup lovers! Students have more workspace in a layout that’s easier to manage, with upgraded equipment, and enhanced designs. The entire space is crafted to help ease the learning of complex Special Effects Makeup projects.

Whether students need a cool-off or a fire-up, they can find it in the students lounge area where they can sit a spell. The lounge area is perfect for when you need to reboot, brainstorm, or commune with other students.

Now is the perfect time to check us out because school starts on June 1 for our daytime program, and on June 7 for our Weekend & Night program. So, come visit us in the land of beautiful Monsters, Fairies, Demons, Sea Creatures, Illusions, Goddesses, Zombies, and anything you imagine…

After all, it is Your Dream.

We are holding a special Makeup School Scholarship/Application Workshop tomorrow from 9AM-11AM for local Los Angeles residents. The first 10 enrollments will each receive a scholarship of up to $2500. Makeup School Scholarship Workshop

Now is the perfect time for anyone who loves makeup and has concerns regarding finances. If you have the passion, then we have the money to help see you through to your full potential.

We believe in our craft and we believe in our students. This is why we have developed a Scholarship fund to assist those who have the ability, but do not always have the means to pay for a first class education in the makeup arts.

EI isn’t a beauty school or cosmetology school, we are the world’s first School of Professional Makeup. We have withstood the test of time in this fast-paced industry because we are constantly improving, fine tuning, learning, and catering to the needs of our students. We strive to inspire and increase the ease of learning complicated projects, such as those seen in big Hollywood movie productions.

Besides Scholarships, we also offer government funded Financial Aid to those who qualify for it. Most cosmetology and makeup schools do not offer government funded financial aid to their students because of the strict rules that the school must adhere to. We are obligated (gladly) to provide our students with a true education in the makeup arts that translates to gainful employment afterward.

Take advantage of this opportunity to truly take a big step towards accomplishing your dreams and goals. It’s a small payout that could result in huge rewards. Two hours of your time could be the spark that sets your life ablaze!
