Volume 3: Advanced Make-Up Course Accepted


Dick’s Advanced Course has more Academy Award winning and nominated graduates than all of America’s makeup schools combined. In continuance of this long tradition, our graduate Love Larson was just nominated for an Academy Award in 2016.

  • The Advanced Course lets you learn special makeup effects in the comfort of your own home, on your own schedule.
  • The program includes extremely detailed text and video created by Dick, with supplementary material by Andrew Clement, presented in an accessible, conversational style. It’s like having the Master himself sitting at your side, explaining things to you.
  • You’ll also receive online mentorship from top Hollywood makeup artist Andrew Clement, who played a major role in Deadpool’s makeup. Click here to see Andrew’s A-list work.
  • The Dick Smith Certificate opens career doors. Dick’s certificate is the most respected in the makeup profession because it is given for the quality of your work, unlike certificates of makeup schools which are given merely for completing their program.
  • Affordable tuition: only $1,995 for the entire course or you can purchase it in thirds for only $665 per section (plus shipping).
