Course overview

This is a new and exciting course designed for those with some makeup experience looking to expand their skills into vintage makeup and hair styling. These looks are becoming more and more sought after for weddings, parties and hen nights. This comprehensive course will show you how to recreate key looks and trends from the fun flapper look of the 1920’s right through to the bold and funky 1980’s style.

Day 1 - Day 1 will start with the vintage makeup theory exploring the different key trends and looks for each era. Students will then be shown a demonstration of techniques by our highly skilled makeup artist. You will also be shown how to use contouring to highlight and accentuate features. Students will then go on to practice some of these techniques and demonstrate a look from the 1940’s and from the 1960’s.

Day 2 - Day 2 starts with the vintage hair theory. Again students will be shown a demonstration and will then go on to practice techniques such as The Finger wave, The Victory Roll and the Beehive.

This is a fantastic and current course for anyone interested in expanding their makeup skills to enhance their career or just to learn for fun.
