Course Overview
Study from home during COVID-19 restrictions

Whilst we pride ourselves on our hands-on training, we have had to adjust most of our courses for study from home and remote learning during the COVID-19 restrictions. This means courses will be delivered using a range of methods including online learning, virtual classrooms, workbooks and direct contact with your teacher.

Given the government restrictions that are now in place to reduce the spread of coronavirus in Australia, we expect this new model of study will continue until the government makes changes to these restrictions.

Introduction

If you love make-up as much as we do come and explore the world of make-up artistry in this nationally-recognised and comprehensive course.

Along with the basic principles of makeup application, skills covered include airbrush make-up, remedial camouflage make-up, creative make-up and session styling – a collaboration of hair and make-up to produce creative and innovative looks.

This course is ideal for those wanting to gain employment as make-up artists and to apply their skills across the beauty, fashion, media and entertainment industries.

Students in this course have access to free workshops with our reputable industry partners.
