Hi there i hope someone can help, i have wanted to do a make up artist course for a long time now, i started a beauty course when i was 17 but as it was in bradford collage and it was combined with hairdressing it was a nightmare so i didn't finish it, now i need to have done beauty at bradford before i can do mua there, so i was wondering if there was any short courses any where else that are any good and dont cost a fortune x hope someone can help xx Summer

You can be taught photographic make up in 2 days? That's the fumiest thing I've ever heard sorry lol even Kevyn Aucoin himself wasn't capable of that

I have to agree.  If they're offering to teach you within two days, it's a rip off and waste of time unless you're doing it just to help with applying your own make up.  Are they offering a qualification with this?!  If so, it'll just be an attendance certificate I suspect.  I only did a part time years course at college but I carried on learning whilst working as an assistant and I only really do beauty make up.  For something more specialist, it'll take a lot more time and money!

im on my nvq3 doing media make-up did my nvq 2 last year, and iv not learnt as much as some people would think and thats after doing it for a year and a half at college and doing it in all the free time i have too, i would not advise a 2 day learing corse as i dont think they have much to offer.
and im not sure meny people would use someone with only 2 days traning.
a make-up artist is tyhe job i have wanted to do since i was about 12-13 and i never in a million year knew how hard it would be till i started college.
May be you should look into the colleges around your area see what they have to offer
hope that helped

The sillset website is good for finding local media courses

im not saying that a two day course is all you ever need to be a makeup artist, but its a starting point. yes, from what ive heard it is an accredited course. there are other colleges in the area who do longer courses, but if you wanted a taster without spending a heap of money on the course then a short course may be ideal. i think that a post should be read properly without the assumptions.

Thank you i'll be applying for the course at Thomas Danby as it will give me a good insight and hopefully after that Bradford collage will then take me on, as they wont at the moment because i dont have full beauty theorapy qualifications, so for me it's perfect. Dawn your a Star x thanks everyone for all your info x
