The MakeUp Issue was established in 2004. From a passion for beauty and fashion, we have curated course content intended to fully equip and qualify aspiring artists to a professional level in many sectors of the industry.
We are well known for our superb level of training and ever-evolving syllabus taught by highly qualified and experienced MakeUp and Hair Artists.
Students will be able to gain unique in-field experience under our instructors, who are well known Heads of Departments in the fashion and film industry and will be able to gain authentic insight to the road ahead of them in this competitive industry.
We lay a lot of importance on comprehensive working knowledge, a full understanding of products and materials, but most importantly, a strong and professional portfolio. Students will be planning and producing their own photo shoots, fashion films and creating new content daily to build and amplify their portfolio and social media presence. This is all made possible through our private recording studio facilities accessible by the students.
A successful artist need not only excel in the knowledge of the various techniques but be professional in their approach and have an acute sense for business. Founder Abie Viljoen explains “Rather than focussing on past academic achievements, the most important traits are having a creative flair, maturity, a great personality and professionalism”.
