Introduction to Makeup - Two practical sessions


For therapists wanting to gain basic skills in make-up application, I recommend the Introduction to Make Up course. For beginners looking to embark on a career as a make-up artist, I offer the Bridal Make-Up/Special Occasion

Course Benefits:

It is ideal for those who would like a little knowledge of these services alongside other beauty treatments they may already offer or look to 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.
