Online and in-person

The accelerator materials are available online, so you can access them anytime, anywhere, on your mobile. The experience is designed to come to you and fit around your professional career.

But this is more than just an online course. You will also be invited to local meetups and to Mastered Live, a weekend of learning and creativity, hosted at a stunning global location, such as Iceland, Croatia or Canada.

Insight from industry icons

Throughout the 10 months, you'll get high-quality video content featuring insights and advice from top experts who are working and succeeding in the industry today.

The experts' knowledge and insight will help you complete the practical projects that you need to do to become a stronger makeup artist.

Feedback and performance coaching

The backbone of the accelerator is regular feedback from industry insiders, to give you the direction you need to achieve your personal goals. 

In addition, you will get access to a performance coach who will help you act on this feedback, and hone the winning mentality you need to unlock your potential and grow personally and professionally. 

A network of opportunity

No one succeeds alone. Which is why you will join a global pool of curated talent to network and collaborate with. Creative briefs set by industry legends will give you the stimulus to discover and work with peers. 

Then it's time to put it all into action. We leverage our industry connections to provide opportunities for work and recognition from fashion shows, agents, creative directors, beauty editors, commercial brands and more.

Your journey over 10 months

The accelerator has been built to give you the insight, feedback, coaching, and network needed to claim your place in the industry of the future. Take a look at what the next 10 months could hold.

Your aesthetic & public profile

The starting module of the accelerator is all about goals and your aesthetic. You'll be working out who you are as a creative and defining the fashion magazines and brand clients who are right for you and what you want to achieve – both on the accelerator, and in your career.

Creative process & trends

Once you’ve defined your voice and unique signature as an artist, refine your process so that you can deliver consistently, while putting your own stamp on any project.

Fashion fundamentals

In the previous module you will established your aesthetic; here you’ll learn the fundamental skills needed to adapt your craft across the industry. You’ll discover how to work with the titles and brands that align with your goals, so they book you - and rebook you.

Future fashion

Now you’ve learnt the fundamentals of fashion work and how to get it, here you’ll learn the next steps of bringing your craft to new, diverse audiences and building a reputation as a desirable, forward-thinking creative.

Your brand and career ahead

In this important final module, you’ll learn how to promote yourself, how to present your work and how to thrive in the industry and achieve your goals. You’ll understand how to plan your career, so you can continue to create and achieve your goals while remaining motivated, inspired and excited about your future.
