DAACK™ Makeup Academy

Felicity is well educated and presented local lady, who knows and understands the importance of high quality work and consistency. Being a Freelance Makeup Artist for just over 18 months, Felicity has grown her makeup artistry business into a very well know establishment it is today. When Felicity began makeup, she could see a gap in the makeup education fields. Felicity decided too open DAACK™ Makeup Academy and offer clients and students interactive and educational courses in the makeup artistry field.


Words from Felicity (Founder and instructor at DAACK™ Makeup Academy)


Hello and welcome to DAACK™ Makeup Academy. As a Certified Makeup Artist myself I understand the gap in the education field of makeup artisty. Hence the reason DAACK™ Makeup Academy was born. I have worked in the industry for nearly two years after coming from an Accounting and Management background. After very quickly evolving in the industry I have soon learnt and taught some very valuable lessons.

I am a very highly sought after artist and am heavily booked 18 months in advance. I come recommended by many clients, photographer, TV producers, celebrities and alike. I have had the pleasure to work interstate and recently been asked to travel Australia wide for makeup.

I have had the pleasure of completing my Master Makeup Certification with one of the world’s most prestigious schools for Makeup. I am further more studying skin and skincare at the moment.

On a personal aspect, I am a wife and mother. With two boys, a husband and a dog I understand and appreciate the value of support and time management. Having the success I am having and being a mother, you could imagine how good my time management and commitment skills are.

Here at DAACK™ Makeup Academy, we pride ourselves on up to date knowledge and constant skills and application training. For this reason we do not offer an accredited course. Instead you will receive a Certificate of Attainment. We care very deeply about our students and work closely with them to get them to where they want to be. It is imperative that you are taught up to date skills, using the same products and brands that top professional makeup artist’s use (no great makeup artist ever uses only one brand of makeup). Also because we are not accredited, we don’t need to get government approval (from a government department who has no experience of this industry at all). This allows us to alter the courses and update as new products come on the market or new techniques and trends emerge, we can add these aspects instantly to the courses so that our students are thoroughly up to date and prepared for the industry when they graduate.

Yes, deposit is required to secure your position but then you are able to make equal payments each week until course completion. Students will not be graduating until all monies have been received. If you have not paid for the current week, you will not be able to attend that night until account is up to date.

Do I need a licence to work as a makeup artist?

Many cities do not require a working makeup to be licensed. However, some areas do require a makeup artist license or cosmetology license. DAACK™ Makeup Academy does not qualify its students for this type of licensing. It’s your responsibility to make yourself fully aware of the working requirements and government regulations in your area before starting professional work.

If your area has no licensing requirements, a certificate such as that offered by DAACK™ Makeup Academy is sufficient proof of professional training. Clients and creative agencies who are hiring a makeup artist will look at your portfolio of work, past experience, appearance and professionalism not just a certificate.

Class Sizes

Due to the nature of the course, class sizes will be limited to 8 students per course.

Do I receive certification from completion of courses?

A certificate will be issued to students who successfully complete a course.

Can I get VET help or government funding?

Here at DAACK™ Makeup Academy we are a private training organisation, so no government funding or VET help is available. We do have flexible payment options and payment plans. Afterpay is available also.
