Beauty School Drop Out

A beauty school that has no rules..

We are launching our next round of Beauty School Drop-Out Courses September 15th! There will only be 4 slots available.

About Us

Beauty School Dropout is a beauty School alternative located in the heart of Midtown Nashville, TN. What makes us different from other schools is that we are a working photography and makeup studio that educates budding and thriving makeup artists. So we not only teach you, we inspire you with both a creative learning and working environment. We believe learning and realtime experience are key if you’re looking to get ahead in the beauty industry.

We pack both learning and field work into one place. This is due to the fact that it is extremely hard to get paid and fulfilling industry work off of the strength of knowledge alone. Creating quality work and knowing what sets you a part from the rest can be very daunting just starting out. We understand how expensive it can be to go to makeup school that’s up to date on trends. We believe that everyone should be able to do what they love and receive quality and affordable education.

We not only help develop your talents, we also generate a lot of the paid work you will receive, in house. Our clients range from bridal to events, all the way to creative and professional photo shoots. We create a space that truly fosters a creative mind and helps to eliminate the “starving artist” mantra. We are a private studio which means smaller classrooms and more one on one support. We have colors and textures at every turn. So we don’t just want to teach you, we want to encourage you to just be an artist!


Come Visit!

Why is Color Theory important?

Color is the bedrock of makeup artistry. A lot of artists start out just wanting to go straight for the hands on knowledge and “trial and error” their way through. While this method can be helpful in the beginning, you’ll notice that you will hit a brick wall in your craft in the long run. You need Color Theory to mix and color match foundation, to correct hyper pigmentation, rosacea, and to pair certain colors together effectively. You will find that you will be an over all better artist after having mastered this Theory.
