Professional Makeup Artist Education


Samples of student work

Want to improve your skills as a makeup artist?  It’s possible by attending Lux Image Agency’s education courses or boot camps.  Whether you are interested in professional work or just want to catch up on this season’s trend, there is a course outline that will fit your needs.  Lux offers classes on studio makeup for photography, makeup for HD video, kit building, skin care and more. 

Lux Individual Courses and Lux Boot Camp will prepare you for the necessary skills when working with a client.  Preparation of the skin for makeup application, demonstration of products to clients and instructing clients about makeup application is essential.

You will learn how to apply a wide variety of professional makeup products while creating the look your client wants for the specific project or shoot. 

Learning how to work with others is also vital.  You will often have to work with more that one person on the job.  Communication skills, consistent and coherent application and practical understanding of lighting strategies are crucial.

In any photographic process, colors and the impact of makeup processes on the skin is diverse.  These differences are reviewed to ensure that appropriate action is taken to minimize or eliminate side effects from specific makeup types under diverse lighting conditions.

Taking notes during a trial or prep session may seem silly, but is probably the most important aspect of the final shoot.  You will learn how best to document your prep sessions to eliminate agony on set or awkwardness in front of bridesmaids.

Finally, you will learn about how to work quickly when under time restraints, problem solving when they crop up and client management techniques for the best possible outcome... A Pleased Client!
