Makeup Science, Technology and Technique Workshops

Creative Artistry & FX hands-on makeup workshops are targeted to deliver a strong working skill set in the application of important Ultra High Definition (UHD) makeup artistry techniques, which every professional makeup artist should have proficiency in for today’s high resolution media.  All instruction is based through the science and principles of UHD camera transmission, recording and resolution format for film, television broadcast, video and print makeup application.  Acquiring UHD compliant makeup technology and techniques will ensure your artistry expertise and performance proficiency can meet the demand by productions in the current 4K and 8K and the newest 12K resolution formats.

Today's highly competitive makeup industry requires the artist to possess a superior compliment of skills to stay ahead in this crowded and aggressive job market.  These courses give the artist the opportunity to strengthen, advance, or tune up their fundamentals and/or acquire specialized skill sets that are vital for various fields of professional freelance work; most of which is required knowledge and execution for artists seeking to join the makeup union. What sets these workshops apart from all others is that students are taught directly by a veteran two-time Emmy Award winning industry artist and training/performing their compositions through a live HDTV recording set so they can study their work first hand through a live camera on a high resolution monitor.

Targeted skill workshops taught by an inside-the-industry professional expert in a small class setting will always make you more “set ready” and save you valuable time and expense over a months long/large enrollment formal school setting that may not incorporate UHD specific makeup science training in their curriculum.  All instruction is 100% focused on building the student's proficiency in performance through state of the art knowledge and methods and without useless "filler" material to pad the workshop time. This is serious education taught by a leading UHD makeup science expert and prepares the novice, entry level pro or seasoned beauty artists desiring to refine/advance their skills into UHD compliancy, or to add special make effects or advanced hair skill sets to their offerings that can move you ahead in your career and above your competition.

All classes are strictly limited to 6 students per class for maximum attention to details and close oversight to student performance.  Each workshop listed below has a detailed information brochure outlining the course material to be taught, along with registration information. Class dates are posted on the Workshop Schedule and subject to change without prior notice.  Any changes will be updated and posted immediately on this page.

All workshops are first come first served basis.  Enrollment begins when the workshops are posted on the schedule, and is ongoing until they are filled. To request a workshop detail and registration brochures please contact Suzanne.
