Its not enough to simply understand makeup- you need to understand the makeup industry you will be a part of. There are plenty of great makeup artist who never realise their full potential  because they lack the connections and industry smarts to get in the door and climb the ladder. This course has a been developed with a strong focus on creating those connections.


One of the biggest challenges in training makeup is that danger of students being developed in narrow areas by teach who focus on their own speciality and style at the expense of others. That’s why you will be taught by some of the best names from the individual fields. You will have the chance to be trained in the complete range of professional methods and techniques required in today’s industry. Whatever your passion is – we will be passionate about it too.
