How Do I Get Certified in Makeup?

If you are a pro with the lip liner, a wizard with a pair of scissors, and extremely wise with a blusher brush, the makeup industry just might be for you. A makeup artist uses his/her artistic skills along with cosmetics to enhance a person’s appearance, highlighting their natural beauty and hiding any imperfections that they are embarrassed about. The first thing that one might ask is how do I get certified in makeup. Well, there are plenty of certification programmes across the United Kingdom, from diplomas to makeup schools, and beauty academies.

Makeup Artist Courses

While you don’t need a degree to become a makeup artist, a recognised certification will do the trick.

#1 VTCT NVQ Level 2 Diploma in Beauty Therapy Makeup

This is the ideal way to start your journey in makeup and get certified. It is a beginners’ course or certification programme designed for those who have zero experience in makeup. VTCT NVQ Level 2 Diploma in Beauty Therapy Makeup is a government-funded beauty course that teaches techniques and procedures that will help you set foot in the beauty industry.

#2 VTCT NVQ Level 3 Diploma in Makeup Artistry

While the NVQ Level 2 Diploma prepares students for employment as a junior or assistant makeup artist, NVQ Level 3 Diploma teaches technical level skills that open the doorway to a lot of opportunities.

These courses are offered by beauty academies, creative arts schools, and colleges across the UK. Just make sure that the certification programme you choose is accredited by the government as well as other regulatory bodies.

CPBA offers free employment advice and guidance to their beauty therapy learners. We also offer free make up courses and funded level 3 make up courses with work placements.
