2 Week Creative Course
2 Weeks, 30 hours per week
Monday to Friday
Our two-week Creative make-up course is the next level up from our foundation make-up course which must be completed at an IMA school before moving on to Creative. The creative course takes you through the skills of fashion and photographic make-up, including editorial and advertising – plus catwalk (runway) make-up – while examining and practicing the latest trends in fashion make-up application.
Each day’s workshop will be taken by a different professional make-up artist from the fashion and photographic industry. The makeup artist will start the day by talking about how they reached their level of expertise, and how they source their work. The makeup artist will talk you through their portfolio and explain how to build your own. They will then demonstrate a fashion photographic look or trend which will be followed by hands-on workshop.
In the second week, students will have the opportunity build their own portfolio with a colour photo shoot of their own work, taken in our London studio by a professional model and a fashion photographer. The remainder of the week will be focused on catwalk make-up, using more dramatic and striking artistic work. The entire course has a great balance between demonstration and hands-on work, with the opportunity to get adventurous and creative under the mentorship of a professional artist.

Your cosmetic brushes can feel damaged especially if product remains in the body of the hair and the remaining cosmetics become hard. This can take away the suppleness and make the hair break.
For regular maintenance i.e. washing out all make-up residues, is recommend so we especially developed a cleaning soap which is based on pure vegetable oils with reconditioning effect.
