This course runs over five days. See what you’ll learn day-to-day below.

Day One: A flawless base is first step to any makeup look, which is why we’ll get started with skincare and skin analysis, colour correction, professional brush techniques and foundation application. We’ll also take a look at theory and good hygiene practice.

Day Two: Build on your base with an understanding of face shapes and how you can use contouring, highlighting and blush techniques to define them. Then, we’ll move on to lip correction and the perfect red lip application.

Day Three: Maximise those eyes with skills to help you achieve perfect arched brows and beautiful eye makeup application, including eye shadow texture theory, and applying single and full strip lashes.

Day Four: Gain an insight into the world of bridal makeup, starting with the all-important consultation and client care. Then we’ll build up to creating a complete bridal look, based around flawless, dewy skin.

Day Five: Amp up the glamour with this session on the perfect evening makeup look. We’ll cover smoky eyes, full strip lash application, the perfect liquid liner flick and how to create a beautifully blended eye look with sparkle to suit all of your clients.

Additional Information: You will receive one of our beautiful brush sets at the start of the course and we provide all of the products and equipment for you to train with, so there’s no need to bring a kit. Students also receive a notebook, pen and foundation course notes.
