Study Make-up Degrees

Studying for a make-up degree will allow you to enhance your skills in the area. You will be able to discover more about the theoretical and historical side of make-up application and uses, as well as having the chance to improve your technical and practical skills. You will be exposed to the business and marketing elements of a quickly developing academic discipline, preparing yourself for a career in an industry that is going from strength to strength.

An undergraduate degree in make-up will give you a foundation of knowledge in the area. You will study modules on the application of make-up, the history of make-up, contemporary make-up designs and the different uses for make-up throughout history. These modules will prepare you for a variety of career opportunities.

Your degree will be delivered through a mixture of modes. These will include lectures and seminars, as well as practical assessment and sessions to develop your technical skills. You might be presented with the opportunity to undertake a practical module or year, but this will depend on your institution and degree course.
