Glam Academy Semester 6 Presents: 60’s Italian Vogue

This photoshoot was inspired by 1960's Italian Vogue and each student was not only responsible for the makeup-- but the entire vision.  Bravo Semester 5!

The Glam Academy has been more of a success than ever!  Semester after semester our students within months of graduating the program have flourished into full grown businesses– some booked out solid for two years.  One of our recent graduates was covered in an article by CNN doing makeup for fashion week!

The design of the program is unlike any other.  We help you identify those things about yourself that you don’t realize are specific to your own wealth of knowledge.  Meaning I grew up in a highly artistic environment– so the language of Jazz, artistic terminology, the way I observe shadow and light is something that is just normal to me.  And something I didn’t necessarily realize other people may not know.


Discovering the things that you don’t realize you are passionate about and fusing that to your artistry allows you to create a brand and line of services that no one else has.

The Glam Academy builds you as an artist by allowing you to see the world of makeup through an artistic lens and breaks the “yes’s” and “no’s” we allow to mold our perception of makeup artistry.  Fusing that with those signature things about “you” that make you different from the rest of the world– we help you hone in on an untouched brand and market.  As quickly as your artistry develops so to does your business– essentially we fuse both the artist and the entrepreneur.  We identify your goals and show you just how much further you can go.

The student that leaves the program is not someone that has left a 90 hour program but an individual that has changed their course in life.  A person that has worked not only on Academy days, but on the days between working on independent assignments that build your artistry and understanding of business.

The entire year of Academy dates has been released.  We have a variety of schedules designed to fit anyone’s availability.  With 60% of our students out of state our “Intensive” program is identical to the Glam Academy in curriculum but is in two back to back weeks.

We have also recently release our Masters program which is exclusive to graduates of the Glam Academy.  This program advances and perfects your artistry and comes with a complimentary internship/ externship where the student is able to gain field experience by assisting at a variety of levels– observing, assisting, and actually doing makeup on clients. This creates a cushion and provides the students with actual experiences only further preparing them for their own business.

Glam Academy Semester 5: Fall Photoshoot

We are now in the final days of fifth semester of The Glam Academy.  One of the first shoots for the Senior portion of the program focuses on all of the beautiful jewel tones in both fabric and makeup trending whenever the leaves turn crispy and golden.  With eyes having an ombre effect of deep to light bronzes, cheeks “flush” with color isolated on the apples, and deep wine glossy lips– these looks show the students artistic ability to stay relevant to what is trending while still preserving a timeless nature of the composition as a whole.  These photo’s are my favorite of each photoshoot.  Enjoy!

Glam Academy 5 dates are officially out!

With our summer semester completely booked and at capacity in addition to a huge demand for this program– The Glam Academy has now released its fifth semester of dates!

After three extremely successful semesters of transforming people at all different stages of artistry into strong artists and entrepreneur’s we proudly go into our completely booked fourth semester beginning in August!

Our summer semester (now closed) with students coming from all over the east coast has reassured us in our ability to introduce people to their own true capacity.  By showing people that something that once was a dream is something absolutely possible– by giving people the tools to go beyond their own expectations of themselves, by truly fusing the artist and the entrepreneur we KNOW that if people take in all that the Glam Academy has to offer they will be successful business owners that can absolutely control their own destiny.  We can only give you the tools, the vehicle so to speak– your own drive, motivation, and passion is the only thing that can fuel it.

Our sponsorships and affiliations leave the students with an experience unparalleled by any other program– from new models for every look, to photo shoots of every lab personally taken by Alexa showing the true journey of your artistry, to limo rides throughout the city taking students to private demonstrations by the top artists in NYC, education throughout the semester that allows you to leave the Academy with a working business– these are only a few of the many experiences that make the Glam Academy such an incredibly unique take on what transforming a person into a successful makeup artist is.

We put you in the control seat of your future allowing you to not only reach your dreams but go beyond them.

Spring into Summer with The Glam Academy!!!

The fourth semester of the Glam Academy (Hoboken, NJ Makeup School) will be starting this August.  This is after three semester’s of successfully transforming people with either an interest in makeup or makeup artists looking to refine their skills into full blown entrepreneurs!  Each of these artist’s have taken their own independent interests and passions and fused that with their love of makeup– creating lines of services drastically different from one another.  Whether it be a play on language, a specialization in cultural makeup, or catering services to a particular demographic (kids, teenagers, older women)– the Glam Academy students have created businesses that answer WHY someone will come to them instead of someone else!  Each of these students continue to impress me daily by utilizing the full gamut of social media– truly understanding the capacity it has to fuel the exposure of a business.

Please feel free to research these highlighted students and see the incredible stamp they have left on the internet
