Dear Nat,  I am so grateful to have come across Paint Professional School of Makeup Artistry some two years ago.  I made a snap decision to enrol in the Back to Basics course after realising my love of makeup, and I have not looked back since.  You opened my eyes to a wonderful world of colour, texture and creativity.

What makes Paint Makeup School different is its thorough and concise look at every aspect of makeup and its application.  From skin properties to hygiene, to face shapes, to product usage and the history of the industry, I did not fully appreciate the wealth of knowledge I have acquired until I was working alongside others.  I found I was prepared for every situation.  As both a freelance and employed Makeup Artist, I can safely say that the obstacles you may encounter in the industry are as diverse as they are unpredictable.  Nat’s wealth of knowledge and real -life experience has enabled me to face each challenge head on to not only enjoy it, but to seek it out.

However, the most valuable part of my involvement at the school would be the constant support that Nat offers every students she teaches.  The small class sizes enable you to learn from others, whilst not detracting from your individual progress.  The creative and collaborative environment of the school is reflective of the industry itself, and students are prepared and encouraged to gain work experience.

Nat makes every student’s education a personal one.  Not only is she a knowledgeable and widely respected artist, but she is a kind hearted and nurturing educator.  I could not have asked for a better teacher.  Perhaps the biggest surprise was the fact I gained a supportive mentor along the way as well!  Than you for everything you have done Nat, I attribute my success to you!  Love Kelly Chambers

Dear Natasha,
I just wanted to say thank you for all the help and encouragement over the last couple of months. I have learnt so much and feel grateful for that knowledge. Love CHAKRINI

Nat teaches at the highest level as an educator whilst having fun and interacting with all students. She encouraged me to look at all areas and styles of makeup and to realise that there was so much more to learn. As a beauty therapist I thought I knew a lot about makeup but by doing this course I realised I didn’t even know what colours suited me! I am now enjoying a new career path in makeup.

Dear Natasha, Thank you so much for teaching me Back To Basics. I had so much fun learning all the different aspects of makeup. There was so much more to makeup that I didn’t know. I had so much fun with all of the photo shoots and lessons, and because of this I am now more confident working in the industry as a makeup artist. Thanks again Kind Regards Emma xx

Dear Jodi and Nat, I just would like to thank you both for offering such a wonderful course. You both have such a wealth of knowledge and I never thought I would learn as much as I did.It was a pleasure to learn from such artistic and talented people in the creative fashion field and I loved how encouraging you were to all of us students. I miss the makeup course already and really look forward to having more education with you in the future. I’m now enjoying doing makeup and making people look beautiful more than ever before. Thanks Adam Hough

To Paint Makeup School,

Before starting at Paint I was a qualified hairdresser working in a small Adelaide salon. Since completing my makeup course at Paint Makeup School I have ventured off on my own and started up my own business, Josie Piacquadio Hairdresser and Makeup Artist. I have gained so much work and experience on photo shoots and weddings. I have also teamed up with Adelaide Photographer Wayne Jones and work along side him on glamour, fashion and commercial photo shoots, being the primary hairstylist and makeup artist. I have worked on a few major photoshoot projects such as, Red Pearl Couture 2010/2011 Bridal Collection and Stepanka Swimwear and Beachwear 2010 campaign. I would like to thank you for your amazing class, I learnt a great deal at Paint Makeup School and would not be where I am today without it. My goals in the future are to become known in the hair and beauty industry, and for people to see and notice the work that I have a great deal of passion for. Yours Sincerly, Josie Piacquadio

Dear Jodi & Natasha,
