What Will You Learn?

Enhancing features, covering ‘flaws’, boosting confidence, increasing personal strength, expressing yourself, creating fantasy. However you use makeup, the Makeup Artistry Diploma Course will help you to enhance your skills and techniques – preparing you for a career in the professional field.

Whether you wish to be a freelancer or work on productions, editorial photoshoots, as a makeup artist for big events or something else, the Makeup Artistry Diploma Course has the insider tips and tricks you need to succeed. It also includes makeup application guidance videos for you to follow along with, to perfect your techniques.

The Makeup Artistry Diploma Course begins by introducing you to the essential tools and brushes of the trade, how to care for them, and when to discard makeup. We’ll also look at the skin – how to care for it, the different types, and how to prepare it for makeup application.

Understanding colour theory is an essential skill for makeup artists. The course explains colour theory and how it applies to makeup artistry and the psychology of colour, lighting and shading.

Using colour theory, you’ll learn how to select and apply the correct concealer, foundation, contouring products, bronzers, blushers and self-tan for each of your clients. You’ll understand how to choose and apply eyeshadow, eyeliner and mascara, and how to shape and fill in eyebrows. You’ll also discover how to apply various lip colour formulations and lip liners.

From these foundations, the Makeup Artistry Diploma Course then provides a module for each of the following makeup specialisms, giving you insight and guidance on how to work and apply makeup within each area: bridal and events, photography, fashion and editorial print work, camouflage, and special effects makeup.

The course concludes with a look at how to conduct yourself and succeed within the profession with a look at everything from soft skills and marketing to business management and contract negotiation.

By studying this course, you will:

  • Become familiar with the essential tools and brushes of the trade
  • Know how to prepare the skin for makeup
  • Understand colour theory and its application in makeup artistry
  • Learn how to select the correct face, eye and lip makeup for individual clients
  • Discover how to apply various specialist makeups
  • Understand the business and soft skills required to be successful in the industry

Brilliant set of courses. I recently completed an Egyptology course with them and was so impressed I enrolled into Greek mythology diploma. (I'm doing a masters in classical studies so the Greek mythology course will help). I'd recommend them to anyone who wants to learn new things at their own pace
