4 Month Freelance Makeup Artist Training Program


(Payment Plan Available)


Become a Freelance Makeup Artist with this exciting course. Taught by professional makeup artists Wil Strayhorn & Nathan Whitfield, you will learn from the best with in-depth 1-on-1 feedback on your makeup work. Upon completion you will receive L.F.I Qualification , a  L.F.I Artist Profile and become eligible for L.F.I referred makeup jobs. You’ll also receive unlimited email & phone access to our pro’s. This is designed for those who are ready to pursue a career as a makeup artist and earn extra income. 

This course is suitable for students with little- no previous make-up artistry experience who would like to pursue a career in make-up artistry. 

L.F.I is committed to continuous improvement to ensure both the design and content of the course are as relevant as possible to market needs.

The Academy also places significant importance on fashion make-up which by its creative nature is constantly changing. Therefore the above course curriculum will be subject to addition and alteration from time to time.

So why choose our class? Our makeup training classes are small to ensure proper education, unlike other classes, workshops or schools that pack in 10-20 students and only care about the numbers not the quality.  This allows personal attention, we provide business guidance, we help develop portfolios. We want all of our students to be successful. 

This program is perfect for those who want to start their career as a makeup artist and learn the basics. This is also great for those who want to test the water and see if makeup artistry is right for you. And for those who want to start slow, this is definitely the right program for you.
