Guest Blogger: Graduate Debra Macki

When I was starting out as a makeup artist, I wanted to learn everything I could about skin.  I looked into different classes and chose Catherine Hinds Institute of Esthetics.  I was so inspired by Catherine, and loved my experience at the Institute.  I learned so much and made good friends during my time there.

I got to know Catherine very well.  She was a wonderful mentor, and I listened to every word that came out of her mouth.  Some of the best advice I have ever received came from Catherine.   

I got my first makeup teaching job from the Institute and really enjoyed it.  That’s when I fell in love with teaching.  I had to leave when my schedule became more demanding but I will always hold my memories from the Institute close to my heart.  

If anyone asks me where to go for Esthetics, I have one answer for them- Catherine Hinds.  

I now work internationally as a Celebrity Makeup Artist and love my life!  I travel with celebs, have interviewed Lady Gaga about her style, and hang out with amazing, inspiring people. In addition to being a makeup artist, I’m also the Beauty Editor of Your Beauty Industry Magazine and Style Editor for and

I am blessed to do what I absolutely love for a living. It’s not a job, it’s my life. I teach makeup classes internationally and I have taken my students with me to movie sets, photo shoots, fashion shows, pageants, celebrity appearances, and television shows. It has been wonderful to see them grow in the industry that I love so much!  I love teaching and I balance it well with my makeup career.  I only teach a few classes per year and look forward to each one.
