As well as the exciting outcomes of runway and photographic, you’ll also cover elements of lighting, tattoo/bruise cover, make-up for high-definition camera, airbrush (including tanning) and creative editorial looks. This qualification reflects the role of individuals employed as make-up artists to design and apply make-up for a range of purposes and occasions across the beauty, fashion, media and entertainment industries.
