The Foundation course at The Make up Dept. is unlike any other ‘beginner level’ beauty makeup course. This intensive week is all about the ‘why’ of the wide variety of makeup and tools that you can combine to achieve various looks.  When you understand the ‘why’ then your artistic flair and creativity can shine. The Foundation course will give you the initial skills and knowledge required to complete a natural beauty make up, on men and women, and understand all the fundamental basics of make up to progress to the next level towards becoming a professional make up artist.

It is hoped this will give you an insight into the depth of knowledge required to become a make up artist, or perhaps this course is all you’ve ever wanted to do. If you progress to the next step, a break is required for assignments to practice your make up skills. During this course you will use the schools cosmetics from Pamela’s hand picked kit so you get to play with products from brands like 

Chanel, Mac, Dior,  Aveda, La Prairie, Cle de Peau, Dr Hauschka, Creme De La Mer, Urban Decay, Guerlain – it’s a make up lovers paradise!
