Beginner Makeup Artistry

We break down our makeup course into beginner and advanced. We typically require all students to begin with the beginner course, which includes a full kit. That same kit is also used in our advanced course. We focus mainly on hands on work during your time here, part of the class is lecture and the rest is practical work.

We like preparing our future artists for the workforce by incorporating real life scenarios and challenges.  This is for the ladies & gents who aspire to be a makeup artist but need to learn all the basics. Remember you need to put the foundation of a house down before you get to building all of the beautiful architecture. Our goal is for the student to leave this course with a solid  foundation on makeup application through a combination of great techniques and the use of top quality products in the business.

Upon completion of our beginner and advanced courses - you will then receive your makeup artistry certification.
