You love to work with make-up and make others more attractive? You want to work on photo shoots, fashion shows and style models? Or would you like to be part of the beauty industry?

A make-up artist generally works in the areas of TV, Fashion Shows or Photo Shoots for magazines etc. They are in close contact with the actors, models, anchors and producers and are able to work with very different personalities. You will require confidence as well as ambition to succeed as a make–up artist.

It is important that the make - up artist has an ongoing interest in keeping up with the latest trends in different looks as well as being aware of the historical make-up styles in order to be on top of their game. Working hours can be irregular as they are dependent on the events or shoots one has to attend.Creativity is the most important aspect. Make-up artists usually work under a lot of pressure, not everybody is able to work under sometimes stressful conditions. This aspect needs to be considered.

It’s very important that a make-up artist should learn the skills needed to sucessfully work in the industry and have a portfolio of photographs of ones works to present to possible clients. Together with the students we teach the most modern techniques in make-up styling and develop an individual style that lets individual stand out from others. These are the basic requirements in order to be successful as a professional make-up artist.
