WHAT WE OFFER

  • Professional Makeup Artistry and Business Program – This is a 40-Hour Monday through Saturday program packaged into one intense week of study and practice. This Certification program is suitable for beginners and experienced makeup artists who want to get certified and learn business lessons without spending tens of thousands of dollars and months of their time. We want to help the next generation of makeup artists find a better, faster, more affordable way to launch their own makeup businesses. By taking our program, you will learn how to apply makeup professionally by practicing on live models, and after completing the course curriculum, you will receive a certificate of completion that recognizes you as a Certified Makeup Artist with mastery in professional makeup application. We also provide a makeup kit and book, so you are fully ready and set up for success with your own makeup artistry and business.
  • Private Makeup Course – This is our three days, one-on-one course, personalized and hands-on, created just for you. Each student chooses specifically what they want to learn and can practice on a Glam Sophisticated Makeup Academy live model, or themselves. This is perfect for a beginner makeup artist who is looking to build the foundation of her expertise, and it is also a great program for an experienced makeup artist who is looking to expand her makeup artistry even further. We recommend this program on its own to brush up on and/or learn new makeup skills or as an addition to our professional makeup artistry and business program.  
  • Private one-on-one or group makeup lessons – This is for anyone who wants to learn how to do their own makeup. Lessons include learning a day look and a nighttime look.
  • Makeup Services- Get your makeup done with us in the Glam Sophisticated Makeup Academy Studio or on-demand in the comfort of your hotel room, office or home.
  • Monthly makeup workshops – coming soon

MEET THE FOUNDER

NIKOLINA TEPAVAC IVANOVA

Originally from Eastern Europe, Nikolina moved to Las Vegas 7 years ago. She graduated from beauty school to become an aesthetician but fell in love with the glamorous side of the beauty world and makeup.

For over 5 years, new and previous clients, and personal contacts sought Nikolina out for bridal and glamorous event makeup application knowing that she would provide honest advice, and skillfully applied makeup with a flawless complexion. She has been professionally catering to events in Las Vegas such as bridal parties, TV, commercial, photoshoots, bachelorette parties, and red carpet events.

Nikolina has been recognized for her outstanding career as a makeup artist, and two years ago, she started teaching makeup classes and lessons. She has taken premium makeup certifications and training from other well-known celebrity makeup artists such as Tamanna Roashan (DressYourFace), Ella Vardanyan (BeautyByElla), Lilit Caradanian and Mario Dedivanovic (MakeupbyMario), and has worked with business coaches with costs of $3000 per session and more. 

Now Nikolina has personally developed a unique curriculum to teach and train beginner makeup artists and to help them start their own makeup business and to succeed in the beauty industry. Teaching only hands-on classes in person, she shares her extensive knowledge and modern methods and allows students to learn the course while recreating all her work on live models. She brings the very latest trends with her into the classroom and shares and demonstrates key principles of her unique professional approach to set you up for success with your makeup artistry.

Organized, creative and passionate about developing genuine relationships, Nikolina puts her students and clients at ease by being incredibly responsive, reliable, accommodating, open and flexible. She goes above and beyond for her students and she strives to empower and motivate them both personally, and with business. Nikolina’s dream is to create a strong and welcoming beauty community in Las Vegas through makeup classes, events, and workshops.
