Hi Douglas and Shakira,

I also looking for the best professional makeup artist school in Hong Kong or Kowloon. Can you please give me the contact number for Karen if you don't mind? I talked with "Touch Up Production" and "Make Up Forever", unfortunately the teacher don't teach in English, and I went to "BeautyTech academy" but I'm not sure this is the best one or not. Therefore please give me some advice from you both. Thank you. cheers

Thanks ladies.

I am getting married this Saturday and I went to Nigar for trial wedding makeup. She is the best, she knew exactly how i wanted. I was very nervous at first since it was my first time meeting her and I don't have much time left. And I also did a facial,manicure and a pedicure at the same time,everything was perfect!

I learned make up from Nigar 7-8yrs back and I am with M.A.C now. She taught me basic make up and to the point. After my course was over she gave me certificate but more than certificate my portfolio was important which I did with her. Sometimes I help her when she has number of clients for makeup. I am very happy with all the tricks and techniques she taught me 8 yrs back which is still as useful as it was in those time. If anyone wants more info about makeup, please pm me.

Hi Bubly,

I was wondering, do you know any very good school can teach me makeup (professional makeup artist) especially for fashion and bridal? I know some school like MOD makeup academy, Zing makeup school, MAE VON makeup Institute, Portfolio. If you know some of these or maybe others pls let me know. Thanks

Btw, who is Nigar? what is her surname? does she has online portfolios?

bubly (10 yrs ago)
I heard about ZING, he is a very good makeup artist i think he was the makeup artist for Elizabeth Arden. I planned to learn from him but somehow changed my mind.If you want Nigar's detail please call her 9364 5271

Hi all,

I'm a new here, I'm not based in Hong Kong but I planning to take a make up course over there. I heard it'll be better to get a professional one to teach you make up instead of go for a school because the purposed of school is wanted to earn your money, seldom of them are willing to provide you opportunity in this industry. I saw there's 2 make up artists contact posted on this forum, should I make a call for them? I prefered the lessons are conducting in english too if enrol to a make up school.

Hi Sasha,

Today i was in Nigar`s Spa as i had my pedi plus my purpose was to also meet her and talk about the make up lessons. She seems like a very nice lady btw. She was busy thats why after my pedi i left but i told to one of the employee there that i will be back to discuss about the make up lessons. She does one on one and the price is 900hkd per hour, so the payment is basically per hour. She said that on the one on one lesson we could do it 3x a week. If i do the group class lesson i will have to wait till next year because she is full of students now and i will be on the waiting list. I wanted to be a certified make up artist because i would like to do something. I went to make up forever and check some others but i am not sure if they will worth the money that i will pay for the lessons as i already know basic make up techniques and etc. My main prob with them is their english, it is so hard for me to understand them thats why i was hesitant to enroll. Now, i found Nigar and i am starting to plan my schedule as i am preggo at the moment & at the same time i really wanted to start and learn now. Here, certificate and porfolio is very important when u want to work for a cosmetic store, thats what the MUA told me when i asked them. Most of the time the managers of the store. Pls give a call to Nigar if you may. She seems nice.

sasha t.l. (8 yrs ago)
Hi Mabn,

Thanks for your info, it's useful, I'll call her by next week. You prefer conduct in english, does Nigar teaches in english? Did you call Karen and Nicole to ask? When you able to start your course? I would prefer next year. I will call them and would shared it here.

mabn957 (8 yrs ago)
Hi Sasha,

I want and english class because i do not speak cantonese. Nigar, teaches in english because she isn`t from hk but living here for a long time already. I didnt call Karen or Nicole. I went back to Make Up Forever again to talk to someone about their class. I am torn where to go coz they also teaches in english but in one on one basis coz they do not have a group class in english but the difference of the price between them and Nigar is huge. Its not 900 per hour and the time is also flexible. I am going to travel this month but when i get back i will def start coz i want to do it now. Pls keep in touch, maybe we can meet up and discuss this make up artistry thingy. :-) If with Nigar, i want a group class it will be next year because she is full but if i decide on one on one teaching i can start anytime and talk with her the preferable time of teaching. x

I also did my professional makeup course from Nigar. Full130hrs course with portfolio and certificate. Now, im working with a makeup company.

Since you have done your basic course. I think she provides hourly courses also which Im doing time to time(I did my course seven year back).Why don't you give her a call on 93645271.

Hello Everyone!

Now I am the one to look for the right make up course and get certificate!

I have already contacted Make up Forever Academy and gave a call to Ms Nigar.

The Academy already gave me some idea of their costs (if anyone needs this information I can send it in PM).

I plan to meet Ms Nigar next week itself to discuss all the details and make up my mind.. But it would be great to know the cost of her course from some of you who already did it!

I've seen that it's 900 HK$ per class, I am only wondering about the complete 130 hrs course costs... Please if you can help me to know it, send me PM.

Thanks a lot!

dariavaidya (8 yrs ago)
Thanks Lailajuju!

Hi Mady,

You've learned from Mai, what's your comment about her? Are you only complete the basic course while you are in London? Can I ask, if you had taken the make up course so why you want to retake in Hong Kong? I just curious, hope you don't mind. Hope you willing to share your experience. Thx!

joycetaufer (7 yrs ago)

I will relocate to HK in September and really wish to learn professional make up preferable on a full time basis as i hope to pick up the skills asap. However, when i surf the net, seems like there is not much full time course around, mostly part-time.

Will really need all the kind souls here to advise me further on where I should start learn.... Any good school or teachers recommended?

Read that Nigar is already full booked so may be tough to learn from her now.

THANKS a million

Try International school beauty...something (ISBC) just search that. It's Kowloon side., in TST. Search site for details of prices. Or approach a freelance makeup artist and give her some $ to teach you!
