Melbourne’s Premier Industry Based Training Beauty Academy
The Tamarua Beauty Academy (aka, the TBA)
Our highly sought after, expert teaching staff have been working first hand in the industry for many years whilst winning countless awards have put the Tamarua Beauty Academy at the forefront of the beauty industry.
There are many components that come together to ensure a successful career in beauty and at the Tamarua Beauty Academy we ensure you are taught everything you need to guarantee that success.
Our class sizes are intentionally kept small and intimate to ensure you get all the personal attention and tutelage you deserve. We provide classes that range from beginner and intermediate makeup application through to advanced and expert makeup classes, as well as spray tanning application and other specialty courses.
With testimonials from past students too numerous to mention on the high quality of our classes, many have commented that these were by far the best classes they had ever attended and many expressing their pride at having completed their training with the Tamarua Beauty Academy.
Feel free to give us a call for a quick chat or if you have any questions about any of our services.
We are committed to providing ongoing support for all our graduated students through our online private forum. We offer students ongoing Master Classes, Refresher Classes and Bonus Photo shoots to assist students in building a strong portfolio demonstrating their unique style and passion as an artist.
As artists, we are always growing and learning. Our Master class Series are developed in collaboration with a selection of Australia’s top freelance makeup artists.
The makeup industry is very rewarding and exciting and always changing. Once you leave the school, it’s very important to stay up to date with current techniques and refine your skills by practicing, attending different master classes and refresher classes.
