Course overview

This 18-week course is an exciting insight into the Beauty and Make-Up industry which is aimed at school leavers through to mature learners looking for a career change.

It introduces the skills you need for entry into the industry with practical and theoretical units covering - Day & Corrective techniques, Evening, Bridal, Fantasy and Art of Photographic Make Up along with the skin care and preparation required to produce a good make up application.

If you are passionate about make-up and have a keen interest to learn some elements of Beauty then this is a great starting point. The course does contain theory which will include some aspects of Anatomy (skin & hair growth, bones of the skull), colour theory moodboards, contra-indications, product research, which includes developing your written and oral communication, portfolio building, research tasks and projects, therefore IT skills are essential as theory will be delivered and completed online via Moodle and Teams.
