The PEMI – Advanced course is aimed at beginners and seasoned professionals alike that have already completed a Foundation course and are looking to expand their knowledge into avant garde, fashion and editorial makeup. The course is designed to take you on a makeup journey through the ages, to inspire and challenge your creativity, application skill and technique.

The ever-changing trends in art, fashion and styling, are created by talented individuals that continue to push the boundaries of self-expression. Find your voice, develop your own identity and become a well-rounded artist that can rise to the top of any concept or challenge.

At the end of the course, the students will design a makeup concept for an editorial beauty photoshoot, where they will have the opportunity to work with a professional model, hairstylist and photographer and will receive two final retouched images of their work, to start their portfolio.

Please note that the PEMI – Advanced course will not be going over the basics—students will be expected to have already covered the fundamental knowledge of makeup application and entry to the course will only be given to those that hold a relevant Foundation certificate.
