Our Quick Start Level 2 Freelance Make-Up Artist Training Package, suited for beginners embarking on a career in make-up, will teach you the basics and give you the confidence to create make-up looks on your clients working from home and/or mobile. You will also learn important eye treatments to help best enhance your clients brows and natural lashes prior to the special occasion, to give the very best results possible. Throughout the three practical training days focused on make-up, the course will cover make-up looks from smoky-eyes to vintage bridal. The addition of the fourth day of the training course is great for those looking to offer their clients the complete package including eye treatments in the run up to the big day. Not only will you learn how to shape the eyebrows to perfection, you will also learn to tint to darken the natural hairs of the brows and lashes and to apply false lashes for a glam full-effect that greatly completes the eye make-up looks you will create.

2. DEKO easy payment plan for courses over £299
Our Deko Finance option is available on all courses, diploma course packages and VTCT qualifications over £299. You have three options – to make repayments either over 12, 24, or 36 months at only 9.9%, all with just a 20% deposit.
A very important point regarding finance options: Many of our students are fairly young and may not have taken out finance before; perhaps they are living with mum/dad or boyfriend/partner and have not had their own name on an electoral roll for at least 3 years. Now, although it may seem a bit harsh it is very true that all finance companies will view your application very critically if any of the above is true. A way around this is to increase your deposit to say 40% but this needs to be done at the outset and not after you have been rejected.
If you feel that any of the above does apply to you then please just have a word with one of our Course Advisors before making an application.
The Deko finance option allows you book and attend your chosen courses with us while making affordable, monthly repayments to spread the cost. You don’t need to wait to book training sessions, you can complete all training as you wish, selecting from our available scheduled dates without delay. This is a great payment choice for those who desire the flexibility to manage studying around work commitments / childcare or even wish to complete their award as soon as possible; but who need the option to spread the cost into more affordable payments, over a longer term.
You can increase your deposit to reduce your payments and you can pay off early if you wish. No hidden fees or charges. The scheme is subject to the usual credit checks etc.
Our four-day Freelance Make-Up Artist training package is designed for complete beginners who have a keen interest in make-up, who are seeking career opportunities within this exciting industry. During the training, you will learn a range of techniques which will enable you to offer special occasion / bridal make-up services to clients (including traditional, vintage and modern bridal), as well as the fundamentals of evening and special occasion make-up.

We are not brand-specific and we have a wide range of make-up products for you to use over the three days given upon make-up.
The fourth day of the course focuses upon learning the most in-demand eye treatments to help prepare your client for their make-up treatment in the run up to the day and to get the very best aesthetic result from the make-up look created by enhancing this with brow shaping, tinting and false lash treatments. This training package provides you with all the skills you require to deliver a full range of make-up and eye treatment services both on the day and in preparation for special occasions, to a wide range of clients on a freelance basis.
Our diploma courses are suitable for complete beginners and do not require any prior learning to be able to train with us; many of our students are not yet beauty trained and are looking to start up a business in the industry. We welcome students of all abilities, whether you are looking to learn a new skill from scratch or currently working as a therapist and looking to refresh your knowledge of particular treatments. A good command of both written and spoken English is required to complete this training package.
Students will give and receive treatments, working upon each other so no models are required. All products and tools are provided for the training day at the centre when you attend. No kit is required to complete the training day, nor included in the course fee. On the training days, you only need to bring a hand towel for your personal use, completed enrolment form and cold food for your lunch (e.g. sandwich/salad). Tea & coffee are provided.
