I had the most amazing experience I was a novice when I started the course. It was very organised, everything explained beforehand and the studio was fantastic, I felt very comfortable. I enjoyed the practical side of the workshop not only did I learn new skills, I had great fun. – Finola –


This is a 3-day course and offers specialised makeup artistry training through personalised 1-on-1 sessions, maximising your learning experience.




Designed to build confidence and encourage makeup artists to stretch their boundaries and feel comfortable creating looks on any skin tone. We’ll take you through the relevant colour theory principles and explain the needs of a variety of skin tones. With an in-depth look at camouflage techniques, you’ll learn how to achieve great results for real life, shoots and screen. You’ll leave this course with the skills and techniques to offer a truly diverse and inclusive makeup service for the modern global community.


After guiding you through some skincare basics for prepping the skin we’ll start to get creative: alongside showing you how to colour match foundations perfectly, we’ll look at colour mixing and choosing your palette for different design functions – learn how to achieve subtle blended looks and vibrant eye-catching designs.

We’ll show you how to use colour theory and camouflage principles to create a flawless base on every skin tone.

With a look at how to achieve colour intensity, you’ll also learn how to use shade and highlight to create a camera-friendly contour.
