Make-up courses a beautiful thing

SOME say beauty is skin deep, but budding beauty queens know they may need a little extra training.

Beauty Therapy Training Australia is offering new short courses aimed at school levers and students who want to make their mark on the beauty world.

The courses include a Certificate II in Make-up Services, Certificate III in Make-Up Services, a Bridal short course and a Photographic Make-Up short course.

In these courses students will learn advanced make-up techniques suitable for weddings, the catwalk, film and television, along with eyelash grafting, skincare and spray tanning.

Beauty Therapy Training Australia principal Angie Smith said the courses offered graduates a wide range of career opportunities.

“Part of the reason for coming up with this campaign was the chance to give school students a taste of the industry,” Ms Smith said.

“Also for school leavers this course will help them decide if they want to undergo further training.

“We offer information, tips and tricks on how to start and build your own business and we teach the students how to conduct themselves and where to purchase wholesale products.”

Ms Smith said course attendees could use their qualifications to enter the international make-up industry, work in the entertainment industry or perform contact work through a hair salon.

“You don’t have to have any special skills, but this course would suit very creative people,” Ms Smith said.

“The classes will be held on a Saturday so school students can come along.”

New classes will begin at Beauty Therapy Training Australia in May.

For further enrolment information contact the school on 07 5599 5568.
