I Want To Become A Professional Makeup Artist And Hopefully Work For MAC...What School Should I Go To?

I graduated from college with a degree in Political Science. My dream is to go to beauty school and become a professional makeup artist! I really wanna work for MAC. What beauty school should I go too? How long does it take? What classes should I enroll in? Also for anyone who knows (works, etc.) for MAC, if I wanna be a cashier at MAC (and not a makeup artist), do you think they will hire me? What are the qualifications for working at MAC? Is it hard to get a job there? Thanks!
