Are you interested in becoming a makeup artist? If you are, then you clicked on the right post, because today we are talking about how our makeup programs work here at the college.
Yes, programs. Not just one, but four different programs, leading to a diploma in Makeup Artistry if you choose to complete them all.
By breaking it down into different classes this gives you options and the opportunity to take it in full, or just focus on where your interests are.
So let’s break these classes down for you.
Everyone starts in Makeup 101. Why? Because we aim to set you up for success. This class gives you the core knowledge you need and also gives you a certificate in Infection Prevention Control, allowing you to safely and professionally offer makeup services.
The focus in 101 is on natural to dramatic makeup applications and allows you to have a good basis of knowledge and hands on experience for bridal and grad makeup applications.
Once you successfully complete Makeup 101 you have the freedom to take the other classes in any order you choose. That said, we do recommend that you take our 102 program prior to taking Makeup 104.
Makeup 102 is what we call our Advanced Makeup class. It is very much a hands on program that covers more advanced techniques for eye makeup, camouflaging techniques, ethnic bridal makeup, theatrical and fantasy applications, and also covers updo’s and heat styling for hair. This gives you the advantage of being able to style hair on photo shoots and for bridal or grad purposes, as well as doing the makeup.
Makeup 103 is our Airbrushing Workshop. This covers basic airbrushing principles to body work and stenciling. We are proud to partner with pro brand TEMPTU for this module, and include a professional grade kit with compressor and hand piece.
Makeup 104 is our Special Effects Makeup class. Learn how to work with latex and gelatin to create amazing fantasy pieces, including prosthetics.
We partner with the best in the business. Our kits are truly pro kits and prepare you to enter the industry as a freelance artist. Where do we source them from? Who other than pro brand MAKE UP FOR EVER. Our Makeup 101 and 102 modules include extensive kits from this amazing brand that was created by makeup artists for makeup artists. Our Makeup 103 kit is sourced from TEMPTU, and our Makeup 104 kit includes professional special effects products from a variety of brands.
