Welcome to the Academy of Decorative Cosmetics

For more than 25 years the academy has educated make-up artists and stylists. Many of our former students have achieved success and honors in competitions.

In 2014 one of our students won the Danish championship. No less than 20 times a student of ours has obtained this reward. Over the years our students have won more than 70 national and international competitions.

Being a small private school, with relatively few students to every class, is the secret of this.

  • Theory and trainee period in all fundamental principles
  • The practical skills and the basic knowledge of the make-up artisti
  • A coaching constantly supervised by our able teachers, all of them with experiences from Milan, London and Hamburg

Down through the years, we have co-operated closely with MAKE UP FOR EVER in Paris.

The whole range of products from this wide professional series, is at the disposal for our students as part of the education.

The academy is situated at the pedestrian street in the center of Odense. One hours drive from Copenhagen. In each class there is a maximum of 12 students and a minimum of 8
