Monday > Thursday, Four Day Advanced Make Up Artistry Course w/ FREE Brush Set, Pro Discounts,  - £1250


The Gold Class is perfect for those following on from our Silver Class or for freelance makeup artists looking to expand their skill-set and keep up-to-date with the latest techniques. TMS will teach you the creative fundamentals and give expert industry tips and tricks to provide you with the knowledge and confidence needed to further your career as a professional makeup artist.

In Depth.

This course will push your limits!  It starts on Monday when you will learn about creative contouring using powders and creams as well as being shown how to create strong definition using light and dark shades. If you have ever wondered what goes on backstage on Tuesday you will discover how it all works, including what happens backstage at top fashion shows! Towards the end of the day you will be given the opportunity to add your own creative influence.  On Wednesday we join GLITTERMASQUE to learn how to apply glitter & create adornments using glue guns. Finally, at the end of the week you will work on a photoshoot alongside a photographer, stylist and hair stylist.


Contour & Cut Crease.

This should not to be confused with the contour tutorial in the Silver Class! Here we create shapes & angles similar to drag artists - think RuPaul.  This will then lead onto "cut crease".  You will learn how to master the key techniques for creating "cut crease" eye makeup.  You be shown how do do this using the best products as well as those all-important professional tools. Then it's up to you to add your own twist!

Backstage Workshop/Directional Catwalk Trends; Looks/influences.

This part of the course will be taught by professional makeup artists with years of experience working at the London, Paris, Milan and New York Fashion Weeks. 

First, you will be briefed on what life is like as a makeup artist with exclusive insider info straight from those in the know. We will also give you invaluable advice on how to assist when backstage and survive in the competitive world of makeup.

Following on from all this we will demonstrate a current catwalk look.  You’ll be shown the importance of layering products correctly and be taught the latest techniques using our favourite products and tools. After the demonstration you will get a chance to recreate the look with expert guidance from your teacher.

Glitters and Stencils with GLITTERMASQUE.

Love or loathe the stuff at some point you will have to work with this product. 

Helen Lewis is a renowned hair and makeup artist who studied at the Delamar Academy and specializes in glitter makeup. Helen has been creating glitter makeup looks since 2006.  She began at Glastonbury’s Dance Village and after a period of working at festivals and nightclubs across Europe, Helen moved to London where she started her company, GLITTERMASQUE, offering ‘pop-up glitter boutiques’ to the likes of Harvey Nichols.

The session with Helen will cover Embellishment, Beautification, Decoration, Gilding and Ornamentation. You will also learn about creative adornment in makeup focusing on three of our favourite artists, Pat McGrath, Alex Box and Phyllis Cohen.

Be prepared to get creative using makeup references from backstage at McQueen and introducing techniques and materials to play with together with glitter and Face Lace.

Photoshoot Day.

You will get the experience of what it will be like to work on your own photoshoot with real models. This will provide an excellent opportunity to start your portfolio and will give you invaluable experience of working alongside a photographer, stylist and hair stylist.

Martha, our stylist, will be on-hand to help armed with clothes from Mrs Jones, who has dressed the likes of Kylie Minogue, The Scissor Sisters and Florence & The Machine.

You will be required to create your own mood board for each look.  Students will be briefed about this on the first day of the course so they have plenty of time to put it together properly.
