Evolution of Makeup
Did you know that the ancient Egyptians are largely credited with inventing the first cosmetics? In this course, you can learn this and more about the history of makeup. For example, learn that makeup was to distinguish social classes for Chinese women around 3000 BCE. Thousands of years later, Victorian women were the first to use a form of lip balm—a pomade like beeswax. Makeup has changed a lot even in the last century. Trends have varied from thin eyebrows to thick, and smoky eyes to natural eyeshadow, and this class will help you understand why.
The Everyday Application

This course can teach you how to gain skill such as applying foundation correctly, using highlighting and contouring, eyebrow application, and more. Overall, this will help you develop the knowledge required to determine appropriate makeup services to achieve the best look for each client. As one of our fundamental makeup classes, this can help you create a solid foundation for the rest of your training.
Nothing is more exciting than the makeup of the runway and fashion industries. In this class, you can really let your creativity fly. Learn about airbrushing makeup techniques, what it’s like backstage at a fashion show, and how to perfect skin tones and bone structure. Gain a better understanding of high fashion makeup trends such as pops of color, flecks of glitter, or metallic lips.
Understanding how colors work together and what families of color work best for what skin tones are important parts of becoming a successful makeup artist. Here you can learn about the temperature and color of the skin’s undertone and the difference between warm and cool colors. Develop skills in color mixing, identifying skin undertones versus surface tones, and understanding color harmony.
Tools of the Trade
