Makeup Course Students Say...

WANT TO BE A MAKEUP ARTIST? I get asked a lot where I studied and how to get started. My recommendation is always "contact Susan Markovic at Makeup Mode!" Susan will teach you everything you need to know and more. Her class sizes are small so you are learning in an intimate environment and get plenty of one-on-one attention from Susan herself.

She trains you using a range of professional products ensuring you leave with brilliant skills AND great product knowledge, plus she conducts shopping trips with her students showing them where to shop and what to stock their kits with. The course schedule is designed to accommodate everyone with weekend, evening and weekday courses available. And there is a great variety of short courses to choose from including editorial, fashion, bridal and catwalk make-up & airbrushing.

Don't pay a fortune to expensive full-time private colleges or unknown and inexperienced makeup artists! Susan has worked in film, television and fashion make-up for over 30 years and teaches extensively at various makeup schools in Sydney helping produce some of Australia's best makeup artists. So pop on over and check out the course schedule today.

Dear Susan,

A huge thank you to you and Make-up Mode for a truly incredible experience in the bridal and fashion make up course. From the moment I entered your door I knew I had made the right decision in choosing your course. I loved the fact that it was so personal and you have so much excitement and passion for make up and teaching, It's what I believe makes you an amazing teacher and makeup artist. Your enthusiasm rubs off on all your students which makes for a wonderful and exciting 6 days. I learnt so much more than I ever thought possible. I also love the fact that you believe in your students and want so much to see them succeed. You are such a beautiful and selfless human being and I felt privileged to be taught by you. I really didn't want the experience to end but lucky for me I get the opportunity to be your student again with your Fashion and Editorial course, can't wait!!! I would not hesitate to recommend your course to anyone!! It's AMAZING!!

I look forward to seeing you soon,
Kind regards,
Kristina Meleka

"Coming from a beauty industry, make up has always been a passion for me however, I felt my skills were limited, this is where my search for the perfect course began. Having spent endless hours on google one name kept appearing 'Susan Markovic'. Make up Mode offered exactly what I was looking for so I signed up for the next available boot camp class. Travelling from Adelaide to Sydney I was anxious and slightly apprehensive, but from the first hour I knew this course was worth every cent.

Susan's knowledge and attention to detail is second to none. As a teacher she is honest, open and shares so much information from her experience as a very successful artist.

I have left this course with more than I ever imagined for a 6 day course. It is with so much gratitude I can now call myself a qualified make up artist and I am so excited to start using my skills.

Make up mode - you're amazing!!

Thank you so much Susan

Dear Tim,

I wanted to thank you for sending through the Dinair Airbrush system - I really enjoy the system and the coverage I'm able to work with. The colours are great too.

But more than all of that - I wanted to thank you for the training. Susan is AMAZING. I don't know how to stress that enough. She was simply an inspiration and incredibly helpful and I loved every minute of the training. She was warm, friendly and a complete expert and taught me so much that I'm sure I'd have been lost without her. She really is a huge asset for Dinair, I'm so glad I had the good fortune of meeting her and learning from someone with such a wealth of knowledge.

Thanks Again.

I want to share the latest success of graduate Sinead O'mara:
Hi Susan hope you're keeping well!

Just wanted to drop you a line to let you know since returning to Ireland I've taken up a new position as Business Development Consultant and make up artist for Jane Iredale it's a London based company which I will be covering the accounts in Ireland.

Without the addition of your course to my resume I know this wouldn't have been possible so thanks again for sharing all your knowledge and industry experience and especially taking me out of my comfort zone for make up!!

" Hi Susan. Thank you so much. You have been such a great teacher and i have enjoyed the last 2 weeks so much. You're school is successful because of the personal touch and the genuine love for your work that you bring to your classes everyday. I was over the moon about how today's photoshoot turned out. Lisa the photographer was such a joy to work with as well. I know Maria my model was very comfortable with her.

I will definitely keep in touch and I'd love to come and watch one weekend.
Thank you for sharing your passion with us.


"I completed the Eye Focus workshop with Rachel Montgomery through Make-up Mode. At first I didn't know what to expect I was nervous but I can say I left the course with so much confidence & knowledge. It's definitely a course I'd recommend to anyone who wants to develop more skills in what you can do with colour in the fashion industry.

Rachel was down to earth, honest and open. She shared her tips and secrets and we, the students, were able to ask anything we wanted without feeling scared.

I am very grateful to have been trained by the industries finest teachers Rachel and Susan. Thank you so much!"


Dear Susan,

You are not only a great teacher, you are simply awesome. I would just like to thank you for an amazing year at the college. You are not only a person of great skill, but also a very talented teacher. You inspire your students and seam to always know exactly when encouragement is needed. I truly believe that this year would not have been as fun or as interesting if it wasn't for you and I have learned more in a year than I thought was possible. I think we all leave this college inspired to learn more, to strive for perfection in what we do and to be the best we can because of you.

To me this has been one of the best years of my life. Before this I was a bit lost in life and didn't know what I wanted to do. My father, a teacher and a writer, who unfortunately died of cancer last year, always encouraged me to develop my artistic skills and I really wish he was alive today so I could show him what I have learned.

I am so happy and grateful for all the knowledge and inspiration you have given me.

Thank you so much, Randi

Hey Susan

I just want to thank you so much. You are a brilliant teacher and you are so passionate about what you do and that reflects in your teaching. You taught me everything I needed to know to pursue a career in all aspects of make up being bridal, fashion, runway and so on. I especially love all the tricks of the trade, with that knowledge I know I'll be brilliant! I feel very confident in moving forward and starting my dream career, all thanks to you and your brilliant skill in teaching. The way you teach, you’re so passionate and I think your school by far is the best out there, since I've already done 2 other courses left very unsatisfied.

Thank you very much for your school and your passion to teach

lots of love Mary

Just wanted to say a big thank you for sharing your wonderful wisdom and energy with me over the last few weeks. You really have given me this great spark back to really enjoy and be creative with my makeup. You have such great enthusiasm and energy for your craft and for life, that is quite infectious. I believe that having such an open and great teacher was just what I needed in my life at this time, so thank you.

I hope I get the chance to assist or work with you in the near future, as I find you very inspiring.

Thank you very much again and hope to see you soon

Yours sincerely Lilah

Thank you so much for everything! You're a truly gifted artist, teacher and above all a beautiful person. The lessons were so much fun and I have learnt so much in only eight weeks. I'm so happy that I trained with the best! Looking forward to assisting you in the future.

I just have to say how wonderful this makeup course was! It was professional, all encompassing, in-depth and fun!!! It has increased my knowledge and understanding on not just applying makeup but on all the OHS requirements, how to be a professional and all the technical sides to makeup.It's such a well balanced course and I would highly recommend it to anyone that has a desire to be amazing at makeup or for someone that can apply makeup but wants to take it that step higher!

Sue you’re a fantastic teacher and amazing at what you do! Who wouldn't want to be taught by the best!
