Courses in Foundation Makeup
All of the foundation make-up courses we have available are required before moving on to creative work. The courses are designed to cover all of the fundamental professional skills needed for day make-up, evening looks, bridal work, and special occasion make-up. They are an excellent starting point for beginners, those who want to brush up on their skills, and those who want to do private consumer work. You will be shown both basic and advanced make-up techniques.
Because you will be working in a professional studio environment and paired up, you do not need to bring a model to work on. The courses are well balanced in terms of demonstration and hands-on work shop, with a strong emphasis on practical skills in professional make-up application. The foundation course is available full-time for two weeks, Monday through Friday, or part-time during the day, evenings, or weekends. The courses include a comprehensive set of course notes as well as a wide range of top fashion brands and skin products.
Courses in Creative Make-Up
This is the next step up from a foundation level and is ideal for those who want to hone their skills in high fashion/photographic, editorial, and catwalk (runway) make-up while researching the latest fashion trends.
Every day, you will work with a group of top professional makeup artists from the fashion/photographic industries, who will share their skills and knowledge gained over many years. Each artist will present their work portfolio and demonstrate the techniques needed to achieve the latest looks and trends in high fashion and photographic make-up. Before beginning the hands-on workshop session, students will have the opportunity to ask the artist questions.
Working on your own colour photo shoot in a studio on a model from a London agency and photographed by a fashion photographer is one of the highlights of the creative make-up course near the end. This will not only provide you with an understanding of what is expected of you in the real world, but it will also provide you with your first photographs to begin your portfolio.
