Foundation Level Makeup Course
Foundation Level Makeup Course | Central School of Makeup Birmingham

The IMA Foundation Certificate is the perfect course for all aspiring make-up artists. When learning the art it is imperative to know the basic and classic styles of make-up in order to progress your skills to more advanced or creative techniques.
During this Full or Part-time course, you will learn key stages to Make-up Artistry including Day Make-up, Evening, Smokey Eyes, Vintage, Bridal, Contouring & Highlighting, False Lashes, Colour Theory, Business & Freelance Advice, Health & Safety, Skin Analysis plus all the fundamental application techniques.

Your teacher will guide you through each process, enabling you to become competent in make-up to Bridal Artistry level, Cosmetic Retail Artistry and/or Freelance Make-up.

Our courses are designed to be less theoretical and more ‘hands-on’ meaning delegates will be practicing their new skills and looks daily, working on each other during afternoon workshops after a morning of demonstrations by specialist, fully teacher trained make-up lecturers. At the end of your course you will be examined by an International Make-up Association Examiner to gain the prestigious IMA qualification.
