I attended SRMUA and loved it. Not only did I have fun while taking the courses, but I learned everything I needed to be a professional makeup artist. I owe a lot of my success to Sonia for being such a great teacher, but also willing to help me whenever I had questions even after the course ended. For anyone who wants a thorough course dedicated to makeup artistry- I would definitely recommend taking SR Makeup Academy courses!
