Contact hours are 1 day a week for 12 weeks 10.00am - 3.00pm.

Each class begins with the theory behind the topic being taught. The class then participates in a discussion, complemented by additional industry information provided by your trainer. All Academy of Makeup trainers are specialists in their field, and are constantly developing and furthering their skills and experience. The class then observes a demonstration, during which your trainer explains how to complete the technique, step by step. We encourage open discussion, interaction and questions, as these are all ways to help you to learn the craft of makeup.

During the remainder of the class, students pair up and work on each other to replicate the technique.

What you’ll learn in this Course…


A highly popular eye technique used to define the crease by "cutting" across it with a contrasting eyeshadow color and no blending.


Different eyebrow shapes can compliment your features in different ways. Curved brows can soften an angular face, while flat brows can add more drama to a longer face. Learn the best carving brow techniques for your client.


From thin lines, to bold lines, to sequences of dots, to pieces of artwork, these awesome graphic liner techniques are having a major trend moment.


Creating and blending bright eyeshadows with a 3D like effect.


Intense close ups of makeup with high quality cameras used in photoshoots. It is the theory to have higher quality makeup to help the photographer have to do less touching up post shoot.


Advanced glitter techniques and tricks to apply on lips, eyes and face for any occasion.


Shading and highlighting techniques are used to contour, define, emphasise or correct certain facial features.


Baking is a way of setting your foundation with lots of powder to lock it in place and brighten the skin. Strobing is using bright products to accentuate the high points of your face. Set and highlight your clients face for a perfected-skin finish with these techniques.


Lift eyes, blur wrinkles and give your client’s complexions an overall more lifted appearance using makeup.


Applied in the traditional way with brushes and blenders, High Definition Makeup is what most celebrities and international Pro Makeup Artists swear by. This makeup looks immaculate, even close up or in front of high-resolution HD cameras.
