Experience

Tara’s in-depth international experience has enabled her to develop these programs from the ground up. With attention being given to the smallest of details, our programs aim to make you confident & industry-ready.

Beginning as a vision, Artists Within Makeup Academy has been an accredited in-person makeup school since 2003. We are the only makeup artist academy to offer fully accredited recognized diploma programs in the province, as well as international ITEC certification and government sponsored student loan assistance.

Tara spends her day keeping our Motley Crew happy and sane. She is Artists Within’s own femme fatale. With her sky high heels and her subtle charm, she has the innate ability to direct “the show” to go off without a hitch.

With years of fashion acumen behind her, Tara has now focused her creative abilities towards education and achieving the highest standards in the makeup profession. “It’s about nurturing and fostering students and equipping them with the skills to become successful in this industry”.

To complement her background as a makeup artist, Tara also develops and manages our makeup line AW03 Maquillage. The line was created with a makeup artist in mind with all products being pigmented, blendable and long wearing. Tara also spends many hours promoting the school with the media to create awareness locally and throughout Western Canada.

Testimonials

Taking the makeup courses have changed my life. The instruction was better than I could have ever imagined. Taking makeup artistry is something I have always wanted to do, but until Artists Within Makeup Academy it was only a dream.

Zoe
Full Time Makeup School Diploma

I loved that our instructor was also working in the fashion industry. The real life stories were both inspiring and eyeopening giving me things to work hard for and also things to live up to and not take for granted.

Natasha
Fashion Styling Diploma

When I started makeup school I was terrified that I wouldn’t be good as a makeup artists or hair stylist. It seemed like a lot to take in as I had no experience. The makeup instructors were so patient with all of us and the many demo’s and hours of hands on really left me feeling confident that I can tackle anything now that I am finished. Thanks so much Artists Within Makeup , the staff were so amazing, it feels like leaving home!

Kimberly
Full Time Makeup School Diploma & Hair Design

The makeup courses instruction is at the highest level, the makeup classes size was small enough that we received extensive personal attention, and the makeup courses work and practical makeup artist experience provided, fast tracked my abilities as a makeup artist exponentially. To top it off, I secured a job with one of the best makeup brands at Canada’s top luxury department store a week after graduating. My credentials as a makeup artist trained through Artists Within Makeup Academy is why I secured employment so quickly and successfully.
