A Distance Learning Course is the ideal way to gain a qualification without having the worry of trying to fit your studies around your everyday life.† You can complete your studies in your own time and we are on hand seven days a week to help you plan your future.

Course Description

As a make-up artist your job would be to create an individual look for your clients.† This could include natural looks through to more complicated looks and special effects. The work involves creating images and characters through the medium of make-up, hairstyles and prosthetics in accordance with a brief.

Do you have a creative flair? If so and you are also interested in fashion, hairdressing and cosmetics, this could be the perfect career choice for you.

The Distance Learning Make-up Artist course has been developed to help you gain the necessary skills to become a Make-up Artist, learning how to provide facial treatments, apply make-up and carry out eyebrow and eyelash treatments. You will also discover how to provide make-up treatments for beauty salons, weddings, fashion photography and theatre.

Video tutorials will be provided to help you perfect your skills and on completion of your course, you will be provided with the necessary help to set up and run your own business.

Most Make-up Artists work freelance for a number of clients which means you can work flexible hours whilst building your portfolio of clients and this will enable you to fit this lucrative career around your everyday life.

This course is flexible and you can study anytime, anywhere via our online Student Portal. You should allow approximately 80 hours for completion.

If you are considering becoming a make-up artist, you probably have a good selection of make-up to suit your skin type, already available. However, if you are looking to put together your very own make-up kit, we do have professional student kits available at discounted rates. This kit includes all the essential items to launch your new career and enable you to work with clients. Your make-up artist professional kit also comes with a free bag to enable you to travel from one appointment to the next with ease.
