The makeup artist training is provided by experienced, registered professionals, active in the beauty and fashion industry and trained by international makeup artist Juliette den Ouden. Our educators share their extensive experience to best prepare you for a versatile career.

With our focus on personal development, we deliberately keep classes small and supervised by two teachers. As a result, you will receive individual attention as a student and upon completion you will be widely employable in both commercial and fashion-related projects, and as a bridal stylist.

JDO Academy is located in Amsterdam at the address below:

JDO Academy
August Allebéplein 1076
1076 AC Amsterdam

Free parking is available at the door on Sundays and every day after 7 p.m.

TIP: Enter “JDO Academy” on Google Maps, and it will take you to the right place in front of the door instead of the square. Please also communicate this to your models.

Yes, if you enroll in makeup training at JDO Academy, it is important that you bring a model to practice on at each class. However, for photo shoots we provide a professional model whose cost is included in the total training fee, but which we bill separately including VAT. In addition, it is essential that you also practice on models at home for your homework.

  • Immediate surroundings: we recommend asking your immediate surroundings first, think family, friends or neighbors. Perhaps they know someone who would also like to model for you.
  • Social media post: of course you can also use your own social media by sharing a post with a call. What can help in this is to tag @jdo-academy in your call so that we can also share it on our channel (note: this is only possible if you have a public profile).
  • Call in Facebook groups: there are also groups on Facebook where you can post calls that you are looking for a model to practice on. A fee is often expected in these, but it is not necessary. Be clear in your communication in this.
  • Addressing people: another perhaps more challenging option is to simply approach people on the street or on the road, but we understand that this can be a barrier.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to apply for student loans because JDO Academy is a private training institution.

At JDO Academy, we stand for quality and consistency in our courses. Course materials are not included in the cost. While you are not required to work with our products, we encourage you to purchase our carefully curated packages. This not only ensures a high standard during training, but also ensures that we can assess all students equally. Should you need only part of the starter package, it is possible to order products separately.

If you miss a class you can make it up in another season in consultation with our coordinator.

Assume a homework load of 3-4 hours per week such as practicing on your own models and making sketches and mood board in preparation for classes.

At JDO Academy you are assured of quality and a high level. Upon completion, you will therefore receive our own JDO certificate, which we have deliberately chosen instead of an industry diploma. This is because we are proud of our CRBKO registration and the fact that 95% of our students pass. Upon completion, this will be awarded in recognition of your achievements and professionalism.
