*Please note that courses are only extended to 8 days if there are 2 students or more.

If you book private lessons we do teach week evenings and week day classes.

These courses are designed for those who would like a hand on, up-to-date, short make-up course. These courses are especially popular with beginners wanting to gain an over all introduction to the latest make-up techniques and products. Those already involved in the beauty, fashion or hair industry find these short courses to be an inspiring up to the minute refresher. The courses focus on bridal, special occasion and fashion make-up. 4 and 8 Day students obviously have more hands on time to master the techniques with the help of their teacher. 4 and 8 Day Course students also get the opportunity to focus on more advanced eye shadow application techniques, working with a wide variety of unique products.

MAKE-UP KITS

Make-up Stars do not include student kits in the course fees. Students can use all of our make-up during the courses. With this arrangement students get to work with a wide variety of products and can decide which items will work best for their unique kit. Each student has different kit requirements and it’s therefore more suitable and practical to offer each student a kit that actually works for the type of make-up they decide to specialise in. We introduce students to professional make-up brands, students will need to show each make-up brand their certificate in order to qualify for the student discount. (10% discount) We do sell specialised make-up products, the items that we don’t sell can be bought from specialised stockist or in store

If our students would like our help with designing their make-up kit we are happy to assist and suggest suitable items that will suit the type of make-up they will be doing after their course.

  • Please note: If you would like to purchase your own set of make-up brushes Make-up Stars can offer you a set of brushes in a pouch (20 pieces).
