My name is Kata Prokop.
I studied economic engineering at university, but I found myself and my femininity in makeup art and teaching. I’ve been working as a professional makeup artist since 2003. I opened my first makeup school in Gödöllő. ’SminkAkadémia’, or ’Makeup Academy’ opened it’s doors in 2011 in the heart of Budapest and has been running successfully ever since.
I’m the makeup artist of the TV show ’Több, mint testőr’ (’More than a body guard!’) on the Hungarian channel TV2. In the last few years I’ve been a judge at numerous beauty contests.
I believe in individual development, therefore the training takes place in small groups, in a friendly, homely environment. My downtown studio awaits anyone who would like to learn the art of makeup, or who just wants to learn how to emphasize their own beauty.
My courses are very varied, so any age group can find the course that suits their personality and needs.
My make-up students have regular opportunities for practice. In the course’s framework you don’t only develop your own skills in the classes, but we will also attend photo shoots, fashion shows, film shootings and beauty contests. Students of the advanced level course can compete and take inspiration from each other’s styles at our makeup competitions.
I also organize optional overseas programs, to acquire even more competitive knowledge. I take my students to London every year to participate in Europe’s highest standard makeup convention: The IMATS.
There are many opportunities to extend your portfolio. We go to Verona, Italy a few times a year, where you can take part in a photo shoot with my team of professionals in an authentic Italian castle. With these photos, we organize an exhibition in the Italian Institute of Culture.
One of my main aims is that whilst on the course my students’ artworks become known as much as possible. Every month you can take part in a professional photo shoot. These photos will be exhibited in various locations.
My work as a makeup artist means constant challenge for me, therefore I constantly develop myself. If you’re interested in makeup, or if you would like to become a professional makeup artist, I warmly look forward to meeting you in one of our youthful, homely and good spirited groups!
