Ever since I was a kid, I am deeply fascinated with make-ups. There are times that I would sneak around my mom’s make-up kit and apply some of her make-up to my face. Imagine a 6 y/o kid applying make-up on self, what would it look like? hahhaha.

Even now that I am a grown up, I am still fascinated how gorgeous women were when make-up artist do their magic. Really amazing! I wish I can do that too. I want to learn so I can experiment and have different looks depending on the occassion. Well, I guess sooner or later I would enroll myself to a make-up school to learn the basics and more.
There are make-up schools that teach you how to apply make-up, there are those that allow you to discover your own style, then there is CAVA – Center for Aesthetics and Visual Arts.
With a mission to guide anyone who is willing to learn along the journey towards finding their artistic self, CAVA provides the best aesthetics education for its students. It has a solid course curriculum that is enhanced by a unique methodology practiced by a roster of respected artists in the industry as mentors.
CAVA offers the most extensive and complete courses such as Fundamentals and Advanced Beauty Makeup, Basic and Advanced Airbrush, Multimedia Make-up and Multi-Racial Bridal Make-up.
These courses are taught in the most comprehensive way giving each student a complete make-up experience. It is a combination of lecture, demonstration, and hands-on activities.
For example, a day in the Beginner’s Class will first have a discussion on a topic like “Introduction to Bridal Make-up”. The mentor will explain the process that starts with the client consultation, the bridal look creation until the contract development. Then, there will be a demo on how to achieve these flawless and classic look.
After lecture and demonstration, the students will apply what they have learned. They will perform a mock client consultation, apply bridal make-up, and then have a one-on-one session with their mentor discussing the looks they have created.
The learning process does not stop there. CAVA designed assignments and lab sessions that will suit each student’s learning style. This will enable them to master the skills they’ve acquired after each class.
Guaranteed to make the CAVA experience more significant and fruitful are the highly-trained and esteemed specialists teaching the courses. One of the well-honored CAVA mentors is international airbrush specialist Hazel Gonzales.
