I am Judy Edelman – Master Makeup Artist, Instructor, Medical Esthetician and your featured blogger this week. I have worked on major feature films and TV shows during my 25 years in the makeup and skincare industry. My work has appeared in newspapers, magazines, runways, and fashion shows. I have worked as a Nation Artist for Trish McEvoy Cosmetics, Shiseido Cosmetics, Estee Lauder and as the chief makeup Artist at Trump Towers. I teach the Make-Up Designory Program here at the Bellus Academy in Poway. My class currently runs for 4 weeks, Monday through Friday.
For this spring season, I have chosen to do a Cherry Blossom Cheek make-up . This Look will brighten every one and is the most current in the industry. This look is very versatile and can be worn to work, school, or for a night out. At the Bellus Academy I teach this look as well as runway, special effects, bridal, television, photography, airbrush and many more. Check the website in the feature for more information on advanced Saturday classes offered for those already in the industry as well as those of you who would like a little taste of what it’s like. Feel free to contact me at [email protected] regarding classes and schedules through the schools website.
Land your dream career
from our students and graduates
“I chose Bellus because I've always wanted to have a career where I would make people feel better about themselves. The education exceeded my expectations and the program has helped me step out of my comfort zone and discover my passion for cosmetology. During my time here, my favorite experience has been doing make-up at the Kansas City fashion week, which was unforgettable!”
“What inspired me to pursue barbering was seeing the before and after, the connection that I make with people and seeing their reaction of how much they love the end result.
My favorite part so far has been making the connection with friends here and watching us all grow together in our craft. My most memorable moments have been with my instructors with Teffi and Carlo they have always motivated me to do my best and without their help I wouldn’t be as successful as I am now!”
“I enrolled in Spa Nails because I was interested in trying a different path in life. I am a mom to 3 and I wanted to show them a future doing something that you love. Making people feel relaxed, building friendships and leaving them happy with their nails!”
“I chose Bellus Academy because of their success rates and the Master Esthetics program. I wanted to feel knowledgeable and well equipped to enter the industry with advanced training. To know I would be able to walk out of my program confident in my ability to perform services such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion motivated me. My CIDESCO certification enables me to be a practicing esthetician internationally!”
“I chose Bellus Academy because of the reviews and seeing it rated #1. My favorite part of my Esthetics program was the Medical-Luxury Spa training. It opened my mind to a lot of different things that I wasn’t even expecting. My plan after I graduation is to work for a Spa on a cruise ship to gain that experience before I own my own business!”
"My favorite part of this journey is seeing how much I have improved from the start of my program, not just with skill but with my timing of services as well. My advice for anyone looking to attend Bellus Academy is to just go for it; it's a once in a lifetime experience that can help you discover so much about yourself and grow as a person!"
