About the course

This course offers intensive training in all skills relevant & essential to professional make-up artistry within the Media Industry. We refer to “Media” encompassing all areas such as Fashion, TV & Film, Music videos, Theatre, Special FX, Advertising, Corporate & Occasion. The content and skills learnt on this course are fully comprehensive and essential, covering all areas, meeting the ever-increasing demands of industry.

All Media Make-up Artists are expected to have comprehensive hairstyling abilities, including period hair styling & wig skills. Hairstyling is often considered to be over 50% of your skill base. Working on period dramas, films, music video & fashion shoots can mostly consist of hairstyling ability, rather than make-up skills alone.

Being a Make-up Artist in TV & Film has never been more desirable than it is today. You MUST make sure you are properly trained and equipped to work in this area of industry.

There are so many places offering short or fast track courses to become Make-up Artists today, it is VITAL that you make sure the course you attend enables you to be multi skilled and recognised by Industry officials.
