Why Choose KSSM?

As Christchurch and New Zealand’s premium make-up school, Kristen Stewart School of Make-Up ensures students get the most from their time with us. We think it is important to send students on work experience and guide them to reach their full potential in their desired career path in the make up industry.

An industry-recognised diploma

The school offers an intense, full time, eight-week course. Kristen Stewart School of Make-Up also only teaches fashion photographic make up for fashion shows, photo shoots, moving film, etc. The school does not teach special FX or stage make up. Although master classes in body art are offered, it is not in the Diploma Curriculum. What the school provides is an industry- recognised diploma.

Small class with a lot of One-on-One

Unlike the rest, only a maximum of 10 students are taken by school. For Kristen Stewart School of Make-Up, it is all about one-on-one with the students and getting to know them and their work.

Kristen Stewart School of Make-Up ensures graduates are work-ready to the highest international standards, and students are encouraged to express their individuality through their work.

The school also offers a varied range of short courses for those who wish to learn the craft of make-up artistry and become more confident in their application, knowledge, and in applying the latest seasonal styles.

Kristen Stewart School of Make-Up is, therefore, more of a boutique school, a beautiful place to learn.
