Makeup Artistry Skills You’ll Learn at Health and Style Institute

Beautiful makeup is an art form. Being able to deliver perfectly toned skin with only a few products and a brush is a talent that most women do not have. And it is a talent that must be capitalized and trained on. Where do you even get makeup training? How do they deliver makeup training? If everything from basic Halloween makeup to beautifully flawless bridal/wedding makeup interests you, it’s possible that Health and Style Institute’s Makeup Artistry program is a great career path for you. But what are the makeup artistry skills you’ll learn at Health and Style Institute?

Special FX

What is special effects makeup used for? A good example is in movies when there is someone gravely injured or when they make someone who is young look old. That is special effects makeup. For the most part, special effects makeup artists will work in the movie making and theatre scene to provide their makeup services.


Airbrush makeup is a very ‘beginners’ technique that plays into many of the other techniques as well. When training to use a makeup airbrush, you are just training in the basic techniques required to make amazing makeup and spray it on. It can be used from everything from fancy dress up makeup to Halloween or even special effects.


Contouring is all the rage right now. Contouring is a specific beauty makeup technique that darkens certain areas of the skin as well as lightning others to make a more beautiful face and stronger chin line.

Men and Children Makeup

Makeup for men and children is another technique you will learn at Health and Style Institute. Doing makeup for men and children is a little more difficult because it must be done so it looks extremely natural. These makeup artists work in the movie and big screen industry. Makeup is used in this industry to reduce camera glare on the skin.

Retail Makeup

Retail makeup is an interesting piece of the program. This is something that most people don’t think about. Retail makeup is the application of makeup for marketing purposes – used in the people who are on commercials, in ads, magazines, on billboards and any other promotional/marketing product.


Eyelashes deserve their own segment in the beauty industry program because it is a difficult piece of doing makeup but is also very important. Having healthy and beautiful eyelashes can change everything in the look of anyone that you are practicing your makeup skills on.

Lighting Techniques

Lighting techniques are also a very important part of makeup. It really doesn’t matter if you have the most beautiful makeup in the room if the lighting isn’t right, the photos are still not going to turn out as well. The overall makeup design works in conjunction with the lighting.

… And More

You will also learn about Color Theory, Sponge and Brush Techniques, Foundation and Blush Application, Lip Design, Prosthetics, Primers, Safety and Sanitation, Camouflaging, High Definition Techniques, and so much more.
