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 as part of this course.

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.
IDENTIFYING FACE SHAPES
For Example: Oval, Square, Rectangle and Heart.
BROWS AND BROW SHAPING, BASIC BROW SHAPE, REMOVING BROWS
BLUSH, EYELINER – PENCIL, LIQUID AND GEL, MASCARA AND LASH APPLICATION, IDENTIFYING EYE SHAPES AND CORRECTIVE EYE TECHNIQUES, COLOUR-WASHED EYE
SOCKET EYE AND SHADOW LINER, GLAMOUR EYE, SMOKEY EYE,
TEARDROP EYE: Epicanthic Fold
DESIGN & FACE CHARTS
Learn the skills to create, design, interpret and present 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.
