Basic Make-Up Course

Due to the rise of image focussed social media such as Instagram showing a limitless supply of celebrity images, and YouTube make-up tutorials, there is more of a demand than ever before for professional Make-Up Artists. Make-up is a great treatment to put on your salon menu; there are a whole range of options to suit every client, making this a very versatile and fun treatment. As beauty therapists, we know how good it can feel when a client leaves your salon feeling beautiful and confident. Wearing make-up can help clients to feel empowered, so adding it to your treatment menu can prove to be very popular.

This course will teach you the make-up application skills that you need to know in order to carry out a professional make-up treatment and contains information about how to adapt your treatment to provide night time, camouflage and photographic make-up.

That means that GTi program gives you flexible learning designed to fit in around your lifestyle. Full tutorial support is available throughout your learning experience. The course also covers reception and consultation, contra-indications to treatment and aftercare advice.

The GTi Make-Up course also includes a module on how to apply and remove strip lashes, meaning that you can add on strip lashes as an extra to your make-up treatment.

The course is beautifully written and accompanied by images and diagrams to give you the best possible learning experience. The course is fully accredited by the Guild of Beauty Therapists, the UK’s leading professional beauty trade body, for membership and insurance purposes. Upon completion of the course, students will receive a full-colour certificate for a GTi Award in Make-Up.
