EIGHT WEEK Professional Make-up

A course designed for a new generation of make-up artists!

Our 8 week professional make-up training course is designed for those who are looking to start a career in make up or those who wish to further develop existing professional make up skills. There is so much to discover in the world of make-up and no training course can claim to teach you everything, be it eight weeks, eight months or eight years! Building a successful make up career takes a lot of hard work; it’s not all glamorous people and locations! If however, like us, you have found a passion for make-up, fat mu can teach you the skills and knowledge that you will need to master, in order to embark on a career in this demanding industry. The professional training course will provide a detailed introduction to key areas of skin care and make-up. We provide a firm foundation in international techniques and etiquette. There’s not even room for an extra false eyelash but we think we’ve fitted it all in!

WHAT KIT DO I NEED?

Look into any make up artist’s kit and you’ll see each one is different to the next one. This is the beauty of what we do. We develop our own tastes and styles and preferred use of brands. At fat mu we advise and expose you to excellent products in class but it is up to the student to buy their own palettes, brushes, tools, pots and paints! This is done for a reason, each student must learn to develop a sense of working as a freelancer and learn where to shop, what to look for and how to test and try products by themselves. All part of learning this craft, essential for YOU to build relationships with suppliers and advise your clients too.

We promise to hold your hands along the way and help you with this exciting process by telling you where to go, brands and cosmetics that we love in India and on the international market and importantly who offers discounts to fat mu students etc. At the end of 8 weeks you will be confident in going out to work, with a keen sense of learning more!

And remember you never stop learning, this is just the start!

PRODUCTS TOOLS MISC
  • A start up make-up kit (kit list options will be sent through on enrolment )
  • A start-up brush kit (kit lists will be sent through on enrolment)
