Pictured below are the CMA training team. These guys know their stuff. Collectively, they have worked in the industry for over 85 years. You simply won’t find a more dynamic, experienced and accomplished team of professionals anywhere. From left to right, meet…


Dove (yes, like the bird), has been helping CMA students do what they love for over 16 years. Dove is widely known for her killer editorial work and her perfect brows. Check her out on Instagram @dovemua. Her skills are next level.


We like to refer to these lovely ladies as the golden trio. These CMA beauties are walking, talking beauty therapy encyclopedias. They are accomplished, experienced and down-right gorgeous. CMA students adore them. We’re sure you will too.


Jacqui is a senior educator at CMA and she kills it on both sides of the camera. She can teach you things that only a makeup artist who is also a photographer can know. Her work regularly appears in Her Canberra Magazine. Follow her on Instagram @jacquiscottmakeup. You will be impressed.


Lesley’s editorial skills are in hot demand. You will regularly see her work in The City News and In The City Magazine. Check her out on Instagram @lesleyjohnstonmakeup. Everyone loves Lesley. We think you will too.


At CMA we love to laugh. Our Lex is no exception. She is also a prosthetics genius. From full-life casts to real life monsters, she is a true artist, and quite possibly the nicest person you’ll ever meet. Everyone wants to learn from her.
