This qualification reflects the role of individuals who use basic skills and a broad knowledge base in a wide variety of contexts in the screen, media and entertainment industries. They apply solutions to a defined range of unpredictable problems and analyse and evaluate information from a variety of sources. They may provide leadership and guidance to others with some limited responsibility for the output of others.
At the Academy of Makeup, we deliver this exciting course on a face-to-face basis, covering everything from the fundamentals of makeup design and application, through to beauty makeup, hair styling, theatrical/stage, airbrush, film, fashion and photography and everything else in between.
The Certificate IV in Screen and Media is designed to provide graduates with a well rounded, job ready outlook and skill set. When you leave the Academy of Makeup, you’ll have the skills and experience suitable for work in any area in the beauty industry and a successful career as a Makeup Artist.
This course is conducted full time over an 8 month period. We offer courses on a Full Time basis as well as on a Part Time (after hours) basis.
Each class begins with the theory behind the topic being taught. The class then participates in a discussion, complemented by additional industry information provided by your trainer. All Academy of Makeup trainers are specialists in their field, and are constantly developing and furthering their skills and experience. The class then observes a demonstration, during which your trainer explains how to complete the technique, step by step. We encourage open discussion, interaction and questions, as these are all ways to help you to learn the craft of makeup.
During the remainder of the class, students pair up and work on each other to replicate the technique.
Students are assessed on their ability to conduct research skills, convey research into written reports and their technical skills through observation of practical work. You’ll be required to attend classes, complete out of class project work and participate in industry based Work Experience as part of this course.
No prior knowledge or training in makeup is required in order to study this course. Students must be at least 16 years old.

What you’ll learn in this Course…
Understanding colour theory is a skill that a Makeup Artist must have in order to conceal and correct discoloration and other conditions on the skin.
As a Makeup Artist, it’s also important to appreciate the way in which other people interpret and derive meaning from colours.
IDENTIFYING SKIN TYPES AND SKIN PROBLEMS
Learn about skin problems and their symptoms, ie Rosacea, Psoriasis, Chloasma, Lentigos, Birth Marks, Vitiligo, Cold Sore, Moles and many more.
PREPARING THE FACE – CLEANSING
Once you have identified your client’s skin type, learn the essential steps you need to know about how to cleanse the face and prepare for makeup.
Apply to cover marks, dark circles or other discolouration on the face.
REMEDIAL CAMOUFLAGE/CORRECTIVE CREAMS
Use as a correcting mechanism to counteract unwanted colours in the skin.
FOUNDATION – SELECTION AND APPLICATION
Foundation provides a smooth, even coloured base over which makeup can be easily applied.
POWDER – SELECTION AND APPLICATION
Powder is used to “set” the foundation and prevent it “creasing” in certain areas on the face. It also helps reduce the shine on skin.
CONTOURING AND FACIAL STRUCTURE
Shading and highlighting techniques are used to contour, define, emphasise or correct certain facial features.

DESIGN & FACE CHARTS

Makeup on a mature age face must not be applied too heavily as it can look quite overwhelming. It is best to keep your design neutral and remember that in this case, less is more.
MAKEUP FOR COLOUR PHOTOGRAPHY – FASHION
While there is every opportunity to express your creativity in photographic makeup, you must remember that first and foremost, your client is the photographer/stylists etc
MAKEUP FOR BLACK AND WHITE PHOTOGRAPHY
Precision in makeup application is even more important when applying makeup for black and white photography.
MAKEUP FOR BRIDES
Bridal clients are a special type of client. Their brief to you will usually be to make them as beautiful as they can be on their special day
FASHION READY TO WEAR VS CREATIVE
Catwalk makeup generally falls into one of two categories – Standard Catwalk (sometimes called Conservative Catwalk), or Creative Catwalk.
There are two aspects to the concept of corporate makeup. The first is makeup designed for corporate advertising. The second is offering your services as a makeup artist in the corporate industry.
MALE MAKEUP AND GROOMING
Males who are in fashion, photographic, theatre, editorial, film and television will always have makeup applied to them before they appear on camera or on the catwalk.
You will learn basic upstyles, trimming, using hair pieces and styling techniques. In addition, we cover blow drying, using straighteners, rollers and more.
WIG STYLING AND SPECIAL CARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR WIGS.
To change the colour of the skin we sometimes use a product called “Body Wash” as a foundation for the body.
MAORI & TATTOOING
Tattoos among the Maori people of New Zealand are among the most distinctive tattoos in the world.
There may be occasions where you are asked to conceal a tattoo on a job.
For the professional Makeup Artist, using an airbrush to apply makeup is a fantastic alternative to conventional makeup application.
AIRBRUSH – BRIDAL MAKEUP
Airbrush makeup, especially foundation is particularly suited for bridal makeup because of its durability, and the natural flawless finish it provides.
AIRBRUSH – FOR HI DEF
