I live in Toronto (woot woot) and i really like make up :) i've considered being a makeup artist when i grow up and i'm really interested in taking a course about it. I'm 14 years old, any help?
I also am really interested in sewing, particullarly clothes. I think it'd be really cool to make my own dress - or at least know the basics to sewing!

Yay, another Torontonian! Like you, I love make up. I've always loved the colours, so I decided to become a freelance make up artist. I've never taken a course really, but I think it would definitely help you get started. Do you already have background in make up artisty? Centennial college offers cosmetic classes either at school or via correspondence.

I'm sure there are other indepedent companies that offer classes and I do suggest looking online for more information, but there's an advantage of going to centennial and couple of specific schools in Toronto. Once you complete the program, you can get access to a Mac Pro card which gives 40% off on cosmetics. There are other advantage to being a Mac Pro member.. For more information:

Also, if you want more practice, there are great websites ( and that helps others!

I hope that helps!

Regarding sewing classes.. on Jun 24, 2008 @ 01:58 pm

I forgot to mention about sewing! Here's a website with all craft works and events happening in Toronto.

As you scroll down, you can see different links to companies that offer sewing classes. I think you should take one that suits you best since they're all unique in their own way.

MAC Personal Makeup Workshop on Jun 29, 2008 @ 04:04 pm

I believe it costs $110.00 and lasts 90 minutes.. I took it for personal reasons and found it to be lots of fun and very helpful.

I'm a bit late but Miaka do you know where I can find the MAC personal makeup workshop you were talking about?

thanks :) :)

in Montréal???? on Apr 30, 2010 @ 10:43 am

I'm searching for the same sort of classes but I live in Montreal. I know college inter-dec gives a class called "artistic makeup" but it costs like 5000$ per class plus the material. I would like a class that doesn't last long time or a night and weekend thing. Same thing for sewing. I would like to get the basics for sewing my own clothes without templates.

Hey Mayo! If you are just looking to get some makeup tips for yourself you should try going to an Aveda Concept Salon. They will give you a makeup training session for about an hour (look for salons that have the Aveda logo in the window, or google search).

And for sewing, why not try going to Fabricland to get some patterns. You will need a pattern to show you where to cut, how to place the pieces, and which pieces to sew together. In the past I have tried just taking fabric and estimating what I thought would work and it never did!
