The Foundation Degree in Creative Make Up Design and Practice offers undergraduates an opportunity to gain fundamental techniques and academic training including anatomy and physiology and key practical skills required to work within the make up industry.

Students will be taken on a journey from the past to present in order to gain invaluable knowledge of contextual and cultural influences in order to be inspired to design and create for today’s competitive make up industry.

Throughout the Creative Make Up Design and Practice course, students will take part in a wide range of workshops, practical assessments and design briefs, supported by academic work in order to produce a portfolio and business plan ready for employment.

External industry guest speakers will enhance your experience further allowing you to develop a current awareness of trends and products.

Students will work on live industry briefs linking with employers. Develop skills working towards national and international competition briefs as well as learning skills relating to make up in the fashion/photographic, TV/film and the commercial sector, subsequently progressing to theatrical make up and special effects.

The course is designed to not only equip the student with the excellent practical skills required to function successfully, but also produce artists that can design, inspire and enthuse the larger audience and communicate appropriately within its functioning world.

In addition enterprising make up businesses are an emerging feature throughout the North West region and students will be supported in their personal development for self-employment and business plan development.
