"Developing careers for beauty industry
entrepreneurs one building block at a time"


Virtual Beauty Esthetics & Makeup School, LLC founded in 2014 with passion to educate makeup artist students only. The Esthetics program was approved in November 2016 to license professional beauty industry entrepreneurs. Dermalogica education is ongoing to provide an interactive learning environment for these professional skin therapists. 

Founder & Director of Education, Sheila Hawthorne & a team of Licensed Esthetics Instructors, Certified Makeup Instructors & Virtual Makeup Mentors provide dedicated, focused students with the support, assistance & structured education to make them fully prepared for the career goals of their choice.


Thanks to my parents - Johnnie L. Cochran & mom Inez (my first teacher in the beauty industry and the best example of an entrepreneur & southern hospitality) for all the sacrifices, love, for relocating back home to the south and dedicating over a decade of training and education in the beauty business. Also, thanks to a supportive family, dedicated team, vendors, passionate & hard working students. 

Love Always Sheila (Cochran) Hawthorne
