Our Makeup 1 course teaches you fundamental makeup application skills. This introductory makeup course explores colour theory as well as techniques in correction, concealing, foundation matching, contouring, highlighting and eye and lip application. Classes occasionally feature industry guest speakers and representatives from makeup product lines who help you become more familiar with the makeup industry. Professionalism, etiquette, personal appearance, communication and sanitation standards are integral parts of this course.
