This is a beginners level makeup artist course. You should have an interest in the subject area and a desire to learn but no previous experience is required.
Please note - Many of the looks demonstrated on this course are included on our 'Introduction to beauty make-up' short course. We recommend that you do not take both courses.

As part of your course, you will receive an invite to a MAC Cosmetics discount shopping session which will enable you to purchase MAC products at discounted price. The shopping session may take place either during your course or in some cases the following week or weekend.
