about sma

Studio Makeup Artistry is unlike any other makeup school found 

anywhere in the world. Other schools give you "cheap makeup kits" to keep the cost down but at SMA you'll receive the same kit that Chris uses.


SMA also teaches you how to run your business and even helps build your website and business cards. Last but not least at SMA you can choose to go on a Travel Workshop, shooting on location in a top fashion city!

No other school in the world offers this! 


At SMA you will be taught by founder Chris Baglien, a thirty year 

veteran working throughout the USA and Europe. ​He continues to work for major magazines and in TV advertising around the globe. Chris was ELLE GIRL Model Search’s personal "on call" celebrity makeup artist. 

His clients have included,  John Travolta,  Debbie Allen, ELLE magazine, In Touch magazine,  People magazine,  Marie Claire magazine, Cosmopolitan magazine, ‘O’ magazine, Vogue magazine,  Sony Records, GAP,  Hugo Boss and Playboy as well as Discovery Networks show "Trading Spaces." Chris’ knowledge of makeup application, techniques, love of teaching and his “studio etiquette” is unsurpassed.
