This film & theatrical make up course is our most intensive programme we offer. Apart from being a very popular one, we have been running this hair & make up training module since the inception of CB*MA. Christine has designed all our courses to include the core skills you will need to become an excellent hair & make up trainee.
The reason why we extended the three month syllabus is to allow the student more time to develop their period hair and make up skills; this is indispensible knowledge for any makeup artist. You will be entering the world of period films and TV dramas, learning the importance of research and historical knowledge, not to mention continuity.
As the longest hair & makeup course at the Academy, it allows time to develop your own style and understand that the devil is in the detail; giving you time to establish your confidence and build characters yourself. Only here, at CB*MA, will you find award-winning experts in the theatre, film & TV industry, not just to teach but advise and help throughout your time here. And remember, this care and guidance does not end when your course ends…
