What You’ll Learn in Makeup Artistry


Have you always wanted to attend school for makeup artistry, but you aren’t quite sure it’s the right decision for you? During your education with Avalon you can add on a two week course that can prepare you to become a professional makeup artist. During your time in this course, you can learn a great deal about makeup artistry and how to become successful in the field!

Get What You Pay For

In the world of makeup artistry you get what you pay for. Don’t be afraid to spend a little extra on your makeup tools to get the best. Getting better quality tools will help you become the best makeup artist you can be. Your tools should reflect your advanced skills. When investing in your basic brushes for makeup artistry, be sure you purchase:

  • Foundation brush
  • Powder brush
  • Blush brush
  • Concealer brush
  • Bending brush
  • Eyeshadow brush
  • Angle brush
  • Lip brush

These basic brushes can all be crucial for your career as a makeup artist. Your makeup artist program at Avalon can help you to learn which tools are most important for you to master and teach you how to use them!


A basic understanding of color is necessary for makeup artists to be masters of their art. Working with your client’s natural skin tones can make you a fantastic makeup artist. You’ll have the opportunity to learn more about the color wheel and what colors work well together. Makeup artists must also find ways to cover unnaturally red areas, zits, and other stubborn marks on the face, giving the appearance of smooth, clean skin. This understanding of colors can help you create flawless and natural-looking makeup!

Make the Eyes Pop

Contouring is a skill you can learn that is used to manipulate face shape. Highlights around the eyes can be used in a similar way to make your eyes pop. Contouring is an important skill that can allow you to accentuate or play down different parts of the face to make it look incredible. In many cases, making the eyes stand out will be a big priority for the makeup artist.

Applying Eyeliner

For many women, applying eyeliner is one of the most difficult and time-consuming parts of applying makeup. Through the makeup artistry program at Avalon you can learn about the different types of eyeliner (liquid, pencil, gel, and powder) and the best way to apply them. This can help you to know the right tool for the job when applying makeup for your clients!
