With a basic make-up course you can go in many different directions. Do you want to become a make-up artist on a film set? Teach brides how to make up for the big day? Or would you like to start in the fashion sector? You can also start your own business as an independent make-up artist. The possibilities are endless. Obtain your diploma and expand your skills to create a beautiful portfolio.

'A good basis is everything. I notice that students from this school really do have an edge over other makeup artists. They master the techniques and know their trade through and through. I definitely recommend an internship during your education. That way you learn how to work in a professional environment and how to deal with clients or models. A real added value on your resume!' - employerSpeaks

It is crucial for makeup artists to always be up to date with the latest trends. These are constantly changing, so you need to find the right channels to stay up to date and get inspired. Follow some important beauty accounts on Instagram or visit a makeup convention.

More and more cosmetic brands want to contribute to a better and healthier world. They are fully committed to natural and sustainable products and packaging in order to reduce their impact on the environment. Some products are even completely 'zero waste' and do not leave behind any (plastic) waste. Attention is also paid more often to animal suffering. Many makeup products are tested on animals to study side effects, but more and more brands are putting an end to this.

'I signed up for a basic course, purely out of interest in make-up. The teacher and the motivation of my fellow students immediately made me dream of a career as a make-up artist. It didn't take long before I signed up for an all-round course and worked on my portfolio. Thanks to the excellent advice of the teachers, I now have my first major assignment!' - exStudentSpeaking

  • The very first mascara was made more than 4000 years ago. It consisted of honey, carbon and... crocodile droppings!
  • L'Oréal is the largest and best-known makeup brand. The company was founded in 1909 by a French chemist. Originally, L'Oréal only sold color rinses for the hair.
  • The makeup world also has its own celebrities: Bobbi Brown, Pat McGrath, Tom Pecheux and Charlotte Tilbury, among others, have long proven their skills and are influencing today's MUAs.
  • As a make-up artist you not only have to take into account the clothes a model or customer will wear, but you also have to think ahead about the circumstances. After all, you want your work to come into its own. So ask which lighting will be used on the catwalk or during the photo shoot, or check what color tie the groom has.
