All quizzes, homework, and assignments must be completed and turned in for grade prior to graduation Homework is required part of your grade. Students may only miss one day of the 130 Hour course. If students fail to complete requirements for certification, the maximum time allowed to complete the material is 1.5 the normal clock hours for the class offered.

Dress Code

Maintaining a professional appearance is vital to your success. Faces Etc. of MN is interested in preserving professionalism in all areas of training. We are representing not only the makeup school and the professional makeup artist industry but the world of fashion and beauty as well. Let’s look at the part!

We have established the following professional dress code to ensure fairness, understanding, and positive habits for all students:

  1. Artist Uniform: The Faces Etc t-shirt* included in the kit must be worn, whether it be alone or with a long-sleeved shirt, any color, or a solid black or solid white t-shirt underneath. These shirts must be worn daily as they are your uniform. No exceptions!
  2. Any of the following “professional dress” bottoms (no denim) may be worn: pants, capris, or a skirt (must be no shorter than three inches above the knee). They must be, black bottoms, pants, skirts, etc. (leggings worn under an appropriate length skirt would be acceptable; leggings alone are not considered appropriate as pants but can be worn under a longer shirt underneath the dress code t-shirt). Nothing may cover your dress code t-shirt. It needs to be your top piece of clothing!
  3. Comfortable dress shoes or sandals are appropriate (no athletic-type shoes or sandals, please). Shoes must be clean and in good condition.
  4. Fridays are dress jeans days unless otherwise stated. Denim must be clean and not torn or ripped. Jean skirts are permitted as long as they are no shorter than 3″ above the knees. Again, NO mini skirts allowed! Jeans are to be worn with Faces Etc. of MN t-shirts.

Undergarments are required and should not be visible at any time.

Students who choose not to come in the dress code will not be allowed to enter the class until they are in compliance with the dress code policy. They may forfeit the opportunity for that day’s education (Faces Etc. educator’s discretion will prevail).

*Additional shirts may be purchased for $30.00 cash or check, as available

Students are not permitted to use or carry cell phones or other electronic devices while in class. Guns are banned on the premises.

Leave of Absence

A student who must take a leave of absence (LOA) may do so, provided he or she has first received approval from the director or administration. LOA applications are available from the makeup school Admissions Office. Students granted an LOA must return to the program within six (6) months in order to complete the program in which they were originally enrolled. They must re-enter the program at the point at which they left prior to their LOA.

Failure to return to their specific program within the six months allowed will result in a pro-rated refund based on the number of hours they were enrolled in the program, minus application and kit fees that may apply. Their status is then considered a “drop.” If the student wishes to start their education again, they will be considered as a new applicant, and all enrollment and kit fees will apply.


Tardiness is a disruption to the class and learning process and should be avoided. As a working professional artist, it will not be tolerated. Two (2) tardies or absences within a program will result in a one-week probationary period. If the student is tardy or absent during their probation, the student will be subject to suspension from the course and will not be allowed to re-enter the next course offering.

A tardy or “late” is classified by the following: arriving late for the class start, returning late from lunch, or leaving early from class.

Note: There is no credit equivalency offered for prior learning. All students must complete the required number of hours in their program of enrollment in order to receive their Professional Multi-Media Makeup Artist Credential.
