Makeup 1 FASH 9281


Our Makeup 1 course teaches you fundamental makeup application skills. This introductory makeup course explores colour theory as well as techniques in correction, concealing, foundation matching, contouring, highlighting, and eye and lip application. Classes occasionally feature industry guest speakers and representatives from makeup product lines who help you become more familiar with the makeup industry. Professionalism, etiquette, personal appearance, communication, and sanitation standards are integral parts of this course.


Course Essentials:

This course requires you to work on other students and to let other students work on you in order to gain the skills you need to work on models. You will also be required to bring your own model on occasion and for practical exams. This makeup artist course has a mandatory dress code and requires you to purchase our professional makeup kit from the Makeup and Esthetics Student Store. The fee for the kit is in addition to the course fee.
