The Our Kids review of CMU College Makeup Camps


The best camps are those that allow kids to engage with their interests along with peers who share them, and that’s something the CMU camps offer in abundance. The sessions attract young people who have a passion for fashion, media, and communication, allowing them to exercise that passion with others in a professional setting. For many campers it’s a means of building skills, servicing talents, and allowing them to begin imagining how they might be further developed. For others it’s a chance to experience something different, which to some extent is what the summer months are really all about.

Summer Camp at CMUexpand

"Thinking about CMU College Summer Camp right about now. I had so much fun last year, and I made connections with humans I never thought I could ever make. In that room the energy was positive and everyone was so hungry to grow and learn new tricks and techniques about makeup. I made friends that I still communicate with to this day and it was hands down one of the best experiences of my entire life and I cant wait to go again one day and learn even more!"

-MIA, Beauty Summer Makeup Camp

Excerpt: Camps at CMU College voted top 6 most unique summer camps by Breakfast Television!

For many teens it can be difficult to find where they fit in with their peers, especially if they don’t share the same interests and hobbies. For teens that have a passion for beauty and/or special effects makeup, the Summer Camps at CMU College of Makeup Art & Design are the perfect environment to develop new makeup skills, pursue their passions and meet people with similar interests. CMU offers two camps, one focusing on Beauty and Fashion Makeup and the other on Special Effects Makeup. Beauty and Fashion makeup - teaches campers how to recreate stunning makeup looks seen in magazine editorials, on major fashion show runways, as well as basic everyday makeup they can use on themselves. The second camp is perfect for teens that are interested in Special Effects Makeup and want to learn how to recreate looks from movies such as Stranger Things, Hannibal, The Conjuring 2 and Suicide Squad.  These SPFX campers will learn and practice creating realistic bruises, burns, scrapes, zombie makeup and more.

The camps at CMU are extremely collaborative, allowing participants plenty of opportunities to interact and discuss their passion and interest in makeup. The campers will also receive one-on-one help from their instructor to ensure that everyone in the group is getting the instruction they need to learn, practice and develop these new creative techniques and skills.

Learning alongside other campers in their teens gives participants a wonderful and relaxed environment to interact and build a base for developing new friendships. CMU Campers all have an interest in makeup, making it easy for them to share and have something in common to talk about which helps to build these new relationships. This is so beneficial for the students because they will meet new people through their shared interests, making for easy conversation topics that they feel comfortable with, all in a space that nurtures their creativity and individualism.

Discovering an artistic talent or passion is a great way to help build up self-esteem in these young teenagers. Learning and practicing new makeup artistry skills also provides campers with a sense of accomplishment and increased confidence.

Whether students walk away from camp having found a new passion, a new friendship or a newfound confidence, CMU’s makeup camps are the perfect summer activity!


The Best Academic Experienceexpand

"The complete program is by far the best academic experience I’ve ever had. The instructors are all so willing to help and guide students even after having graduated. Everything we were taught is invaluable now in the professional world.” 



I gained the contacts that have been the building blocks for my career achievementsexpand

“Looking back at my experience at CMU, the greatest thing I achieved was gaining the contacts that have been the building blocks for many of my career achievements thus far! The instructors, administrators, and staff all showed me such loyal support both during my study of the Comprehensive program  and after graduation. Their support helped me to prepare for the real world and face the challenges I encountered. At CMU, you learn from real working artists belonging to all facets of the makeup industry, and the excitement I felt buzzing around the school gave me true inspiration.”



A Huge Thank Youexpand

“I want to send a huge thank you to the school for having such supportive instructors, and for all of their knowledge and advice to help us succeed in the industry. It is because of everything they taught, beyond just school, but more importantly how to make connections and being professional on set, that really got me through the competition.


Many thanks,
Nicole Lupis”
