The Ultimate Makeup Course FAQs

Get the low down on what's in it for you!

The Global Makeup Academy is an online educational hub for the Makeup obsessed. Yay! 

As well as individual makeup masterclasses, I have created an Online bridal makeup course, helping fellow MUA’s up their bridal makeup Game. 

The Bridal Makeup course is jam packed full of makeup tutorials aimed to help give you the skills & confidence you need or to create beautiful long-lasting & in demand bridal looks. With 25 lessons taking you on a makeup journey from skin prepping & the bridal trial, to natural  editorial makeup & full glam makeup looks. 


I will also be offering personal makeup masterclasses in the future – so watch this space! 

The ultimate bridal makeup course is designed for those with some basic beauty or make-up knowledge, in the tutorials I give step by step instructions of how I create each look, so it is not essential, the course would also help total Newbies get on the correct path & get a head start with training.

 

These tutorials will help you upskill as a MUA, I will teach you basic makeup techniques and also those trick’s & professional secrets that they don’t teach you at makeup school.

 

The course is perfect for MUA’s who want to learn how to create flattering editorial style & in demand high fashion bridal looks for their clients.  

We all love those OTT looks we see on instagram, but they don't translate well on the everyday bride or client. I teach you how to create realistic & most importantly wearable editorial style bridal makeup looks that brides actually want to wear on their big day.

Each masterclass has been professionally filmed & edited so you get all the important juicy info & action without long pauses. Perfect for our faced paced lives.

Video’s run from 5mins for some of the shorter skin Prep videos up to 50 mins for the more in-depth juicy tutorials. There is a  total of 10hrs worth of lessons. 

The ultimate makeup package covers all things bridal makeup. Bridal makeup is a MUA's bread & butter. Weddings are big business so as a makeup artist if you can offer high end editorial style bridal makeup it will set you apart from the rest.

 

 

All my lessons have a fashion & editorial edge to them, which means you can also use these looks on photoshoots & for red carpet or special occasion makeup.

 

 

Lessons include how to do in depth skin preps when you have the luxury of lots of time  to super simple skin prep when you are chasing your MUA Tail.

 

 

I've created looks on all ages, skin tones & types to help you understand how to tailor make your clients makeup look to each individual person. 

 

 

Lessons Include:

  • What’s in my kit 
  • Keeping Clean
  • The Bridal Trial
  • Back to basics makeup techniques + (luxe winged eye with highlighted skin)
  • The Editorial Bride - (Flawless on trend glowing natural makeup)
  • Day 2 Night - (Quick Evening makeup change)
  • Amethyst Smokey eye - (Sophisticated Glam makeup)

I have also included 2 bonus tutorials in the Bridal makeup course: 

  • My Ultimate winged Liner
  • Secrets to a Black Smokey Eye  

In each video I will tell you exactly what products I’m using, I try to use the some of the same pallets & products across multiple tutorials to help inspire you when building your makeup kit, but you can substitute the products I used with similar products and colours from your own kit.

Once you have purchased your course you will have lifetime access this includes any future content I add to the courses.
