So, you want to become a makeup artist. When dreaming of becoming a fully-fledged makeup professional, makeup course  learning plays a central part in your development, with many disciplines needing to be mastered along the way. It's just a matter of finding the right provider.

Where Can I Find Short Makeup Courses In Australia? 

They're easy to find, but you need to learn how to apply makeup professionally from a provider offering stimulating content to prepare you for life as a real-life pro. We'll get to it at the end, as we'll be telling you a little bit about our industry-led, video-based short courses online.

Can I Learn Makeup Without Any Training? 

Not if you want to do the job for a living. That's because you need to know about all the classic looks and how to create them, and that's before we start talking about the new techniques that appear all the time. What's also required is some hands-on experience with your makeup kit. 

The question is…how do you get that experience? It’s necessary for the development of both your makeup and interpersonal skills. Thankfully, that’s what we look at now, as we provide you with some ways to get access to willing volunteers to practice on.

Reach Out To Friends As Makeup Models 

When learning to apply makeup professionally, your friends are a vital resource you need to tap into. You'll likely find they’re happy about getting a free makeover, so make sure you know that you’re looking for volunteers. Just be sure to train them to tell them precisely who did their amazing makeup if anyone asks!

Reach Out To New Photographers To Capture Your Makeup Skills

People trying to become pro photographers are on the same general career trajectory as makeup artists, meaning they are also on the lookout for fellow newbies for support. LinkedIn is a great place to look for new photographers who are willing to trade your makeup services on their next client in exchange for some high-def images to put in your portfolio. Plus, it's an excellent practice.

Practice Makeup On Your Own Face

When looking to make use of the skills you gained from your makeup course, you only need to glance in the mirror to see your most helpful resource. You can just sit at your vanity table and get your makeup kit out when you have a spare moment. It's a simple, free and highly effective way to improve your abilities.

When you're just starting out on your journey to learn how to apply makeup  as a professional, you might have to work for free - just to get that valuable experience. Not all apprenticeships are on a voluntary basis, but it’s not really the money you should be thinking of at this stage. 

The advice you can get from experienced pros as an apprentice can b worth its weight in gold, so it’s a wise move. Recruitment companies like Careers By OCA regularly advertise apprenticeship places right the way across Australia, so make sure you check them out.
