The Private 2-Day Makeup Artist Training Crash Course, One-on-One

This option is beneficial for students flying in from out-of-state (too far to drive).

These two days are jam packed with a lot of the information included in our Complete Media Makeup Course (six weeks series of workshops). However, this option does not include the same one year mentorship program, nor the product bonus that comes with the Complete Media Makeup Course. It also does not cover airbrush. Please click here for details regarding what is included in our Complete Media Makeup Course. And of course the price (per day) will be slightly higher since one-on-one and not a group of students sharing the classroom per day. Please continue below for what is included in this 2-Day Crash Course.

Day One: The Career Basics + Basic Fundamentals of Makeup

Day One starts with career planning basics. Next, we move on to Color Theory, one of the principal foundations of everything that the makeup artist does. Successfully recognizing and matching a client's skin tone and underlying tones, good corrective and camouflage makeup, enhancing or complementing natural coloring, all relies on color as much as makeup application techniques. Also, understanding what colors cancel each other out are essential for color corrections in makeup application. Skills in contouring and highlighting are also essential in building a good solid foundation in your makeup application. Your hands-on practice will leave you with the understanding of what to practice for a clean, natural, beauty or commercial makeup.

Day Two: Special Occasion Makeup + Portfolio Basics

Day Two we will be touching on the business of bridal and special occasion makeup as well as discussing basics for portfolio building for working on the commercial side of the business. We will also cover several makeup application techniques that are important for doing special occasion makeup as well as makeup for fashion & photography including false lash application. Student will choose the look for today's demonstration/hands-on practice session from Bridal, Fashion, or an Evening look.

1-Year Limited Mentorship

This 2-day crash course does not include the full 1-year mentorship that is included with the Complete Media Makeup Course. However, it does include mentoring by instructor limited to text, emails and phone calls for one full year.

Each of the two days will begin with a PowerPoint Presentation prior to lunch (10am-1pm). Lunch break will be from 1pm-2pm. And after lunch will be followed by demonstration and hands-on practice (2pm-3pm) on a model booked by the Instructor.

Students do not need to bring anything to class as everything needed is supplied in the classroom by the Instructor.
