Esthetics and Makeup

Aveda Institute Maryland’s Esthetics and Makeup Program is based on wellness and health principles. We teach our students holistic approaches to improve skin and promote better overall skincare practices. Coupled with our wellness approach, Aveda’s Esthetics and Makeup Program prepares students to be trained skincare professionals by the end of day one.

Esthetics and make up

We use Aveda brand skin products to encourage overall wellness during our treatments. Students have the opportunity to work with quality Aveda products that are made to keep not only the environment safe, but skin healthy. Powered by plants and modern eco-science, our students have the opportunity to create custom experiences for every guest using a skincare line that caters to an individuals’ uniqueness.

About Our Program

Our program includes in-depth instruction on theory, practice, workshops (like the one in the video above), and a variety of clinical studies on skin care. We give all students instruction using Aveda products, so clients can receive the full Aveda Spa Experience. Moreover, we offer each student hands-on work, reading assignments, quizzes, live demonstrations, and practice in the lab. Our goal is for students to be 100% knowledgeable on all-things including skin care and be well-practiced in the spa.

The Path of an Esthetician and Makeup Artist

While our training can make a student an ideal candidate to practice under the Aveda brand salons and spas, students can specialize in other areas such as Facial/Skin Care Specialist, Waxing Specialist, Wellness Consultant, Aveda Educator, and Aveda Freelance Artist.
