The Center of Makeup Artistry And Design

The Center of Makeup Artistry and Design proudly offers professional makeup education and helps navigate aspiring artists through the rewarding and complex industry of makeup artistry. Owners and professional makeup artists Ruthie Weems and Jonny Polizzi have over twenty combined years of experience in makeup education. Through their vast knowledge and experience, they have handpicked techniques, exercises and products to enhance the learning experience and give their students the most thorough and well-rounded education from a makeup academy in New York City. 


CMAD offers classes of all levels of makeup artistry, as well as a customizable option for students with specific schedule and curriculum needs. We strive for excellence in our teachings, and our philosophy that “makeup can be learned” is based upon the effort and execution of our teachings. Our students are provided an intimate classroom setting, where they can watch demonstrations of applications, then receive the opportunity to apply what they learned as they practice on models.
