Started working with the school through their makeup team and they gave me so many great opportunities! They helped me build my portfolio by doing fashion events, photo shoots, charity events and even... celebrity events! I went to Makeup Designory, which is their partner school, but NYIB has given me far more opportunities and I am constantly learning from them. I have learned so much from the makeup team that I decided to go to school there to get my Esthetics license. I have learned so much from the teachers and I love being a part of it. The teachers and the staff are all amazing and so helpful. I’m always recommending the school to people who want to get their license and who want to become a makeup artist. I graduate in Jan 2018 and I can not wait to see what my future holds with them! See More

I have been working with the NYIB Makeup Team since the very start of it. A graduate of the school myself in 2006, I am now proud to be one of their lead makeup artists. I absolutely love working with... the team! Every event/show we do is a success! The students and members of the team are truly dedicated to their craft and it shows every time. The team really comes together and works well creating every look they are told to do. An amazing group/team effort makes every thing we do truly come to life! Being a part of this team is a phenomenal way for any MUA looking for experience and learning how to work various events whether it be for a photo shoot, fashion runway, charity event, print, film or tv. It is really an opportunity that no other school offers which is what makes NYIB stand out as one of the best schools for education in this industry. Even as a lead artist, I learn something new and take away so much from every event we do! Thank you NYIB! See More

Where do I even begin. I started my beauty essentials class this September, graduated that class late October. Took airbrush in November and graduated late November. I plan on taking bridal and specia...l effects the next time that the school offers it. I am now enrolled full time for the esthetics program and absolutely love it. Attending the New York Institute of Beauty has easily been the best choice I have ever made. I’ve never been around a group of teachers and staff who is as loving and supportive as the team we have here at NYIB. I’ve worked New York Fashion Week, Brooklyn Fashion Week, A World of Pink fundraiser, a beauty pageant for children with disabilities, a photo shoot with Grungy Gentlemen for the NY Knicks and Rangers and A Movie set. Without NYIB I would have NEVER been given so many opportunities to excel in my career and passion. I have only been in school for about 4 months and I’ve already achieved so much and made so many connections. I am seriously so grateful to have a higher up staff and team who are so experienced and knowledgeable to be my guides and mentors. Ask yourself “do I want to have an amazing career and phenomenal opportunities?” And if you do, then I would Choose NYIB. See More

Great experience and will definitely be back. Katherine did a facial on me and I slept like a baby when I got home. Such a peaceful place and she did a great job.

We started working with NYIB in 2016 and it has been a marriage in heaven, well in NYC. The students are so professional and the staff is the same. It is so refreshing to work with an educational in...stitution that (1) believes in the mission of the client; and (2) are self starters and need no direction. I guess it also helps that we are in constant communications from the end of May until September. I never want either of us to skip a beat.

I LOVE THIS SCHOOL AND SO WILL YOU IF YOU WORK WITH THEM. May name is Sharan Nixon and I approve this message.
