Course Overview

The course is run from City Skills Centre, each Wednesday 12:45pm – 3.15pm for 9 weeks.

This course is ideal for anyone who wants to understand how to care for their skin and use makeup effectively. This varied and fascinating program includes everything from cleansing, tone, and moisturise to how to achieve various looks in makeup application.
The Importance in good skincare before the application of makeup

It is almost impossible to apply a good make-up application without first understanding the basics of good skincare. Therefore, it is important that you know how to take care of your skin and address any issues that you may have; this will ensure that even with a full face of make-up will continue to look great for years to come.

During this course, you will learn the basics of personalised skincare and how to prepare your skin before applying make-up. You will also learn how to complete your own personalised facial routine.

You will also learn how to ensure that make-up applications are designed for your own skin type while considering your own style and preference of application.
