Special Occasion Make-up Course

20 weeks
Thursday evenings, 6-10pm

Taught by professional and respected Makeup Artists that have years of experience in this field, this course will give you the varied skills needed to work in the Occasion Makeup field at a professional level.  Not only will you learn how to apply makeup, you will also learn how to be a Makeup Artist, with essential business skills such as promotion.  It’s no use being great at applying makeup if nobody knows who you are!

Every face is unique and requires different makeup application and techniques.  One size does not fit all.  You need to learn the individual steps of a full look, not just the look, so that you can adapt to each person you work on like a hairdresser would adapt a cut to suit a client’s face shape.

Whilst there are a myriad of short and budget courses available, which at first may seem appealing, the role of a Makeup Artist is multi-skilled and diverse, which is why we focus on and teach you how to deal with the individual details and unique needs of each client.  Being able to offer a bespoke service is an absolute essential quality of any professional Makeup Artist.
