Academy Zagreb

Professional make up course

Independently of an initial level of knowledge and experience, all students are starting from the very beginning (so having never done make-up before is no obstacle).

Besides the theoretical and practical information about the execution of make-up, I believe it is equally important to understand the philosophy behind the make-up as a sophisticated form of communication throughout history and especially today, and the role of make-up artist in the process as an executor and (even more important) psychologist and educator which, to my opinion, is one of the important differences between good and EXCELLENT make-up artist.
