Airbrush Makeup & Tanning
19 clock hours
Airbrushing make-up is the preferred technique for digital photography and HDTV (high definition television). Those specializing in print-work, fashion, and bridal makeup need to master this skill, which isn't yet taught at many make up schools. As television networks, like CNN, have switched to airbrushing, it is demanded of today's makeup artists.. Airbrushing provides a camera-ready velvety texture in a quarter of the time it takes to do traditional makeup application. This class covers basic application (including eye makeup, blush, and lip color) and airbrush tanning.

This course is an introduction to 'camera ready' makeup for photography: bridal, special events, pageants and runway.

Video presentations and demonstrations bring the various techniques to life. Students learn how to adapt makeup for in-studio photo shoots or outdoor events, or runway.
