Basic Makeup Training

Are you itching to get started in the makeup profession but would, first of all, prefer to find out if it is right for you? Then the Basic Makeup Training at Art of Colors is just the thing for you. This course is the perfect step towards learning about the profession and everything that it involves.

Why Art of Colors

During the Basic Makeup Training you are immediately immersed in the world of makeup. In two full days of seven hours each you learn the basics of a makeup artist together with a small group of fellow students. A professional makeup artist will be your teacher helping you to develop looks including a Natural Look, Bronzing Look, Bridal Look or Trend Look. And, it goes without saying, you can direct all of your questions to your teacher.

When you have completed the training you can have your work captured during a photo shoot, which also adds value to your portfolio. You can then choose what direction to take. If this is right up your street then you can continue to the Makeup Artist Professional Training where you take makeup to the next level and learn various techniques such as applying the correct accents and shadows for the perfect look.
