A 12 Week Or An 8 Week Course to Choose From

Both the 12 week and 8 week professional makeup courses follow the same curriculum. They're designed to help ensure success for all the students after they take their first steps into the makeup industry. It's also a journey of discovery and self-development. All our students are encouraged to explore makeup work as an expression of their individuality. This is part of the approach that makes this professional makeup course so unique amongst others on offer. 

To help students get familiar with high standards, we provide industry-standard workstations. This allows students to practice their skills in a professional environment while under expert guidance. We enrol a maximum of 16 students in each class, to ensure a more personalised and thorough training program.

Personally chosen by Glauca, course tutors are always ex-students of the school who bring their wealth of knowledge and experience to our makeup artist courses. This ensures we keep up the renowned quality and world leading reputation of the makeup artist courses we offer. 
Commanding highly successful careers in the industry, the tutors share their invaluable insights into the latest looks and trends, as well as practical advice on how to get started as a makeup artist.

We promote a culture of mutual support between the students and staff; there's a family atmosphere we try to cultivate that extends beyond the period of time spent training.

We run two courses with the same curriculum. This is because we are offering the opportunity on the longer course for students to review practice and perfect all the skills they're trained in. For faster learners or students who already have some experience, the shorter training maybe better suited for them.

On the 12-week course, the extra period of time is an opportunity for further consolidation supporting newly qualified, and less experienced makeup artists leave the school in a state of readiness. All past students become part of the Glauca Rossi family and have access to the school network as they take their first steps into the industry.
