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.

Our one-day Make-Up Course is designed as a first step for those who would like to gain a basic understanding of make-up application to allow them to begin with a new career in make up artistry. It is also ideal either as a taster before committing to our advanced Master Class courses or for a new or existing beauty therapist who would like to gain or refresh their knowledge of make-up application techniques for delivering treatments as part of working within the salon / spa e.g. as part of bridal or prom beauty packages.
It is ideal for those who might like to develop a little knowledge of these services alongside other beauty treatments they may already offer, without wishing to specialise as a Make-Up Artist full time. The course will cover the basics of make-up application using a range of products giving confidence to capitalise on make-up opportunities with clients in the salon / spa with these valuable basic skills; whether that is add-on selling retail products or delivering basic make-up treatments and/or demonstrations.
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 spoken and written English is required to complete the course.
You will be required to give and receive treatments as part of this course, students work upon each other so no models are required.

On the training day, 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 on the day.

Those looking to quickly gain a more advanced knowledge than the basic introduction this course alone would provide (e.g. to specialise as a Freelance Make Up Artist); should consider our 3 Day Professional Make Up Artist training course which will take you from the basics as a beginner right through to more advanced skills and adapting techniques for a wider range of make up looks.
