From Skin Care to SFX Makeup

Coming to visit Cosmix is an adventure! In one part of the school students are doing spa treatments to mystical new age music and the scents of the aromatherapy products are intoxicating. Across the school, aliens, super heroes, and scary creatures are coming to life in our SFX Makeup classroom.

Classrooms
Classrooms provide the setting for lectures, demos, and hands-on sessions. LCD screens & cameras installed in all classrooms broadcast close-ups during demonstrations & students’ finished camera-ready work. Students observe their work on the screen -essential in the development of their skills, as their final professional product will often appear on film and in print. In our make up classes, students watch the current fashion shows and study the designer 's collections in detail.

Special FX Lab
The "Special FX Prosthetics Makeup" and "Creature Design" courses utilize the lab. Students focus on the design and creation of prosthetic & dental appliances. This process involves conceptualization, life casting, sculpting, and molding. Students work on an advanced three-dimensional sculpted character as their final creature design.
