Welcome to Atlanta Makeup Academy!

There is no time like TODAY to start the career of your dreams. Or take your current career as a Freelance Makeup Artist to the next level.
Your Licensed Instructor, Kat Pfender (previously known as Kat Flynt) has worked as a Freelance Makeup Artist since 1993 and has been teaching basic and advanced makeup artist training since 2006. Click here for full career Bio.


This makeup course is completely different from any other makeup school, makeup classes, or makeup workshops anywhere in the Southeast. Why? Because you have the option to add one full year of personal mentorship: a Professional Makeup Artist with more than 20 years of experience (10 years of that experience focused on the commercial side of the Industry) to mentor you (via Video Conference, Phone Calls, Emails) after completing all six workshops, homework assignments, and final exam. This optional mentorship continues for one full year from your start date!! In addition, these classes are taught in a private makeup studio setting that emulates real life instead of a typical classroom. And, these classes are kept very small, limited to eight students per session and only three sessions per year. It is important to the Instructor to keep the classes very small in order to work one-on-one with each student as needed.

Makeup Artists of all skill levels (beginner to advanced) can benefit from this series of classes. With the money making ideas and marketing techniques shared in this class - even the advanced artist can increase her revenue with the knowledge gained from this course. If you are serious about this career enough to work hard and not give up then Kat can guide you through step-by-step to put you on the road to success. It takes a little more than just being good at makeup to become a successful (money making) freelance makeup artist. This course is for those willing to work, market themselves regularly, live their dream, and make some "big girl money" so be ready....

"If I am going to train my competition then I want them to be worthy to compete with. I am not interested in filling seats - I want only those who are serious about becoming the very best they can be and are willing to work hard to succeed." Kat Pfender, Licensed Instructor and Makeup Artist
