This course focuses on vintage make-up and modern bridal looks using a variety of make-up products, including airbrush make-up, to provide a flawless, long lasting finish.
Airbrush make-up is ideal for weddings and special occasions, it is transfer resistant, won’t block the pores of the skin and gives unbeatable coverage for blemishes and pigmented skin conditions. It is a must-have skill for aspiring make-up artists wishing to work faster and achieve the superior results often reserved for celebrities!
Vintage make-up is back on-trend, particularly for weddings and black-tie events and includes the application of liquid eyeliner, strip lashes and bold lip shades.
The combination of techniques you will learn during this course will enable you to provide a wide range of looks to suit the client’s specific needs. Make-up artistry is a lucrative business, with freelance artists earning approximately £30- £50 per hour.
This course is recommended for those wishing to further their make-up skills and take their expertise to the next level. Attendance of our Make Up Essentials Course or prior knowledge is advised.
Upon completion you will achieve an ABT Accredited diploma, allowing you to gain insurance to work from home or mobile with paying clients!

*This Master Class course is intended as a follow-on course for anyone who has attended our 1 Day Make Up Essentials training course or for those who have previously completed training or had experience within the basic principles of traditional make up application, to include knowledge of health, safety and hygiene essentials. The course is ideal for those with existing confidence in basic make up application, to allow you to get the most from the course and advance your skills.
This course is structured over one day and runs from 10am – 4pm. We ask students to arrive at 9.45am to ensure a prompt start. You will learn the theory of the treatment firstly, and spend the majority of the day practising your practical skills, with a short break for lunch.
We do not include any kits within our training courses, however we provide all products and tools required to complete the practical training on the day, at the training centre for you to use. We took this approach following student feedback so that students are not tied into specific kits or brands of products as part of their course fee, before they are trained and able to make an informed choice. Our training courses teach the generic treatment techniques and processes, they are not brand specific.
We recommend attending training where you will gain advice about different brands and suppliers to enable you to purchase products from your chosen supplier directly following your training. We do offer selected starter kits available to purchase through our website & supplied directly from the supplier to you by courier.
