Over the years, we have developed a deep understanding of the makeup issues that women grapple with, such as finding the correct foundation colour, wanting anti-ageing makeup techniques, and ensuring that their look remains relevant and age appropriate. We now offer you the convenience of online lessons which place all the resources at your fingertips. This means that you can learn and practice in the comfort of your own home, but have the experts oversee your results.


Our ‘Makeup 101’ online workshop for ladies is ideal if you want to learn the basics for a quick makeup application.


Our Makeup Master workshop will give you the confidence to master your makeup look on your own face.


It’s obligation-free. We simply need a few details from you before you attend so we can prepare you for the live session.


The idea to create PMU online makeup workshops came from Joy who firmly believes that make-up knowledge plays a key role in empowering women which is why she is so passionate about sharing this knowledge. Online means she can share with all women, not just those who can get to the venue where she is presenting. She first established the PMU Beyond Artistry Online School and perfected the online infrastructure that offers students from all over the world the opportunity to benefit from her extensive experience and knowledge combined with the best in technology and technique. PMU now extends those benefits to clients who wish to improve their personal application technique.

Our online makeup school course is specifically designed to accommodate your busy life, as well as your particular style of learning. We offer our expert makeup information in a variety of learning formats, including live presentations, guided videos and written text, because we understand that not everybody learns in the same way. That’s why we offer all of our teachings in the comfort of your own home. Access all of your studies and teachings from your own home computer, and upload your work as you go. This ensures that you learn at your own pace, in your own time, and when it’s convenient for you!



We created an online learning system that will help give you the absolute best educational experience you can find today when looking for a professional makeup artist to teach you to apply the correct makeup. Our online makeup workshops were all designed to guide you from the very beginning to the very end, so you’ll receive all of the makeup application information you’ll need regardless of your experience.

Step 1 

If you do not have an existing PMU account you will need to first register online to make a course purchase.

Step 2

Complete your makeup course purchase online to gain access to course material using your unique log in.


You’ll be enrolled in your course, receiving all the details of steps to follow, as well as a username and password to enter your course.

Following your course, we’ll send you your samples to test your shade first. Once your shade is confirmed, we then send your product(s).
If you are in a city or regional area in South Africa,this is all included in your course fee.


Of course it is! We’ll give you all of the tools you need to become better at your personal makeup. Our My Makeup online workshops will guide you through hands-on techniques, which means you get to practise your skills in real-life. Many of our customers find the flexibility of an at-home course much easier to fit in with their lifestyle, and prefer learning at home versus having to go to a physical location. We offer online live presentations, guided videos and written tutorials. In our videos, you’ll learn everything you need, from the basic fundamentals, all the way to the advanced techniques.


A great makeup application is a form of art, so it cannot be learned in a single session or single day. The reality is that it requires the practising of techniques and some professional feedback during an extended learning period to achieve the desired effect quickly and artfully. Longer courses at a physical venue mean more appointment commitments and travel time, as well as paying a higher fee for a course. And let’s face it, if you only want to learn makeup on your own face, you will be looking for convenience without breaking the bank!

If you really want to put your best face forward and get the most out of your makeup lesson investment, whether you’re new to applying makeup or stuck in old habits you’ve been using for years, we always suggest only 1 short live session in a week, but with 24/7 online access to enjoy digesting your personalised charts, notes, lessons and videos from a mobile device in the comfort of your own home, and at a time you can relax and have some fun with your personal makeup application.

Online offers a solution to get the best of everything, with the best teachers, yet still get the personalised treatment.


Once you have submitted photographs of yourself and your personalised charts are available, you can study and learn at any time! There’s no set start date! It’s only the live sessions that follow a schedule and you can choose between Tuesday evenings or Thursday mornings. When you are ready to start, we can send you the upcoming live session dates and times and you’ll be sure to find both a time and a day that’s perfect for you.
