Qualification Description

We are the only school in Australia that delivers makeup education through three unique delivery methods. Our Tri-Level education standard means that our students are three times more likely to finish their Diploma at a much higher industry standard, increasing their possibilities for a bigger, bolder and more successful Makeup Artistry Career.

 

Tri-level Education consist of live video broadcasting (every class!), face to face (live demonstration) and pre-recorded HD videos of EVERY class through our AOM TV (watch at any time, any where). The Academy of Makeup is super excited to invite you to become a highly educated Makeup Artist through our industry leading advanced delivery method.

 

The Diploma of Screen and Media (Specialist Makeup Services) is a Nationally recognised qualification that offers a range of speciality subjects that can help you become a film and TV Makeup and hair Artist. In 2020, the Academy of Makeup celebrated our 21st year of developing and training the next generation of leading and creative Makeup Artists.

 

The Diploma of Screen and Media is the most detailed, comprehensive and inspiring Makeup Artistry courses that is offered in Australia.

 

This qualification reflects students who possess a passion, creativity and professionalism. Academy of Makeup students will develop a sound theoretical knowledge base and learn how to use a range of specialised, technical or managerial competencies to plan, carry out and evaluate their own work or the work of a team in any Makeup Artistry environment.

 

Academy of Makeup Diploma Students will learn and specialise in all areas of Makeup Artistry. Students will learn advanced skills and techniques covering everything from the fundamentals of makeup design and application, through to beauty makeup, hair styling, period, cultural, body art, theatrical/stage, airbrush, film, fashion and photography, complex SPFX creations and everything else in between.

 

 

Contact Days and Times

The Diploma of Screen and Media is conducted full time over a 1 year period. The Diploma operates 3 days a week for 7 months, then reduces to 2 days contact days a week for the remaining 4 months (facilitating on-location work experience in place of the 3rd contact day). Class times are from 9am - 5pm

 

Each class begins with the theory behind the topic being taught. The class then participates in a discussion, complemented by additional industry information provided by your trainer.

 

All Academy of Makeup trainers are specialists in their field, and are constantly developing and furthering their skills and experience.

 

The class then observes a demonstration, during which your trainer explains how to complete the technique, step by step.

 

We encourage open discussion, interaction and questions, as these are all ways to help you to learn the craft of makeup.

 

During the remainder of the class, students pair up and work on each other to create their newly learnt techniques.

 

Our trainers highly encourage creative freedom within the class room and for students to freely express their own creativity.

 

Study Pre-Requisites

No prior knowledge or training in makeup is required in order to study this course. Students must be at least 16 years old, and some additional criteria apply for VET Student Loans students.

Students will need access to an internet connection, and a printer if they wish to print their own notes. Notes are accessible online and students are required to download them as they progress through their course.

We also offer Live Video Broadcasting and a Video Library, both of which are accessible via our website. Students will need internet access if they wish to view this content. The content is an advantage to view and will greatly improve training outcomes, but is not strictly necessary if students are attending all classes.

A lap top is our preferred device to be used to access our online content. However, tablets and phones are acceptable, but not recommended for the best training outcomes.

Assessments

Students are assessed on their ability to conduct research skills, convey research into written reports and their technical skills through observation of practical work.

 

You’ll be required to attend classes, complete out of class project work and participate in industry based Work Experience as part of this course.

 

We have designed and developed assessments to allow each student to base them around their real-life makeup businesses. We often see through this method that many Academy of Makeup students are able to (and some actually do) launch their own businesses after 3 months into their Diploma. Whether it be writing your own business plan, developing your business logo and business cards or creating portfolio level makeup artistry imagery, our Diploma of Screen and Media is created to allow our students to launch their artistry careers well before their graduation.

MAKEUP FOR BLACK AND WHITE PHOTOGRAPHY

FASHION CATWALK MAKEUP

Catwalk makeup generally falls into one of two categories – Standard Catwalk (sometimes called Conservative Catwalk), or Creative Catwalk.

CORPORATE MAKEUP

There are two aspects to the concept of corporate makeup. The first is makeup designed for corporate advertising. The second is offering your services as a makeup artist in the corporate industry.

MALE MAKEUP AND GROOMING

Males who are in fashion, photographic, theatre, editorial, film and television will always have makeup applied to them before they appear on camera or on the catwalk.

This is a much more subtle way of ageing a person than some other techniques, such as ageing with creams. This technique is most suitable for television or film.

SPECIAL EFFECTS – SWEAT, TEARS, TEETH STAINING & BRUISING

When creating any type of special effect the two questions makeup artists ask themselves is: How did the injury occur? And, How old is the injury?

SPECIAL EFFECTS – SCARS AND STITCHES

SPECIAL EFFECTS – BURNS

Burns an be caused by over exposure to the sun, hot water, chemicals, hot elements such as a stove, iron, fire and ice, etc

SCRATCHES

Scratches or minor abrasions occur on any part of the skin, often from falling over or having a rough surface come in contact with the skin.

For the professional Makeup Artist, using an airbrush to apply makeup is a fantastic alternative to conventional makeup application.

AIRBRUSH – BRIDAL MAKEUP

Airbrush makeup, especially foundation is particularly suited for bridal makeup because of its durability, and the natural flawless finish it provides.

AIRBRUSH – FOR HI DEF

As a professional Makeup Artist, you must be up to date with developments in the industry. The advent of high definition TV has seen a major change in the way that makeup for TV is now applied.
