Are you interested in learning more about the art of Permanent Makeup?

Have you ever dreamed of owning your own business?

Faces By Design may be the answer…Come Join the FBD Academy!!

Faces By Design has been the leader in permanent makeup procedures in the Mid-Ohio Valley for the last 15 years. As such, it is our responsibility to deliver the highest quality in services…but also to be a valuable instrument to the community, our friends, and family to grow and constantly strive to improve lives.

With that thought in mind, we are proudly announcing the beginning of a new venture in our field…TRAINING.

Welcome to the FBD Academy!!

At FBD Academy, we will provide a select group of individuals with the opportunity of change – a positive impact on their future, their financial situation and the well-being of their families.

At FBD Academy, we will train you in the art of Permanent Makeup!

The Permanent Cosmetics program has been design based in our personal experiences, not only in the field but also during our journey of growth and success. We have created a very clear map for you to follow – and then develop an independent, lucrative and successful business for yourself! We are not only teaching a SKILL, we are transforming your lifestyle with new and fresh views of life and personal capabilities.

The FULL Permanent Makeup Program consists of 100 class hours and it is divided in levels. You can begin your new career after completion of the Entry Level!

This is the longest and most intense course of the 3 levels. It consists of 40 hours of basic elements and foundation.

The topics covered in this week-long course will include sessions on:

  • Understanding the procedure
  • How to do each procedure
  • Interviewing and preparing future customers
  • How to deliver flawless services
  • Financial management
  • Liability
  • Marketing
  • And more…

This module has a value of $5000. In addition to the educational component of this class, each student will receive a full starter kit that will allow them to begin a new career without the need of more investments.

The starter kit will include:

  • Micro-pigmentation equipment
  • Printed materials
  • Patient Prepping example kit
  • Disposable gloves
  • Set of 10 pigments
  • Surgical Markers
  • Eyebrow measuring tools
  • Baby Wipes
  • Disposable bibs
  • Disposable sheets
  • 5 Hours ONE-ON-ONE individual support on procedures

Upon successful completion of the Entry Level class, each student will have the knowledge and capability to perform Permanent Eyeliners and Permanent Eyebrows with confidence. Please note that home studies are necessary along with meeting state requirements to be licensed. Those license requirements will be covered during the class, but each student is responsible for securing their own license upon completion of the class.


This level builds upon the knowledge gained during the Entry Level class. Additional techniques covered will include Permanent Lipliner and Smokey Eyes/Liner Shadowing. Each student will be required to show proof of current liability insurance, and proof of performance of minimum 10 permanent makeup procedures after completing the FBD Academy Entry Level class.

This class will offer 30 hours of training. The value of this level is $2000 and includes cartridges, pigments and special techniques to deliver Permanent Lipliners and Smokey Eyes/Liner Shadowing with confidence.


This is a non-mandatory level. In this level we will discuss special cases, and create protocols for cancer patients, re-constructional treatments, and working in a medical environment. The MASTER LEVEL class offers 30 hours of training and includes clinical practices. Prices will be discussed depending on the size of group and pre-approval of each interested student with complete fulfillment of new and special requirements.

Continuing Education Clinicals

An ADDITIONAL 20-25 hours. These hours will be AFTER you have completed your scheduled classes. You will be required to assist Martha; checking for completed paperwork, talking with clients regarding their medical history, preparing the procedure rooms, cleaning rooms, numbing clients and performing permanent makeup procedures. These hours will need to be completed within 3-4 weeks upon completion of your class. Our goal is for you to succeed. This is another effort in that process!

As FBD has generated a stamp of excellence in all our services, we hope to maintain it in our academy. Our student selection is open now and we hope you consider us to help you take a new route in your personal journey.
