Graduates will emerge with a broad knowledge of professional makeup products, concepts and techniques, alongside the communication and self-marketing skills needed for a successful career. After graduation you will be able to step with confidence into professional situations, delivering creative solutions for bridal clients and fashion photo shoots and shows.
