Choosing a makeup academy
I’m looking to send my therapists on a make-up training course? What elements should I consider when choosing a makeup academy?
There are a few things to consider when choosing a makeup academy. The first is if the courses are certified by an accredited training provider. This means that the makeup course you are signing up to has a nationally recognised vocational qualification, awarded on completion. A certificate means that you are able to get insured as a professional and will count towards getting professional discounts.
Another important point is the course content. Does the training course cover hygiene and safety standards. As well as demos of the looks that you would like to add to your repertoire? If the course is bridal or occasion you would hope to create more natural and elegant looks. This is the style of makeup you would showcase in your portfolio of work.
I think it is important to get immersed in the practical side of things as well as watch great demonstrations by the tutors. Watching a beautiful look be applied is always inspiring, however the student needs as much hands-on experience as is possible. It’s worth looking into how much time to training providers allocate? It will help to build your understanding of makeup application on different skin types and will help to grow your confidence.
Finally, will you get ongoing support from the tutors once the course is completed? Training providers should continue to encourage and nurture graduates as they embark on their new careers as makeup artists.
