Become a Bridal Make-Up Artists and Earn an Extra Income

With summer almost in full swing, for bridal make-up artists throughout South Africa, this means one thing: It is wedding season. Playing an enormous role in summer, weddings are the most beautiful, the most extravagant, and the most expensive day of any man and woman’s life, which is why brides need to look their very best. As the star of the show, it is up to the make-up artist to make the bride-to-be look flawless on the biggest day of her life.

If you’re passionate about make-up, are creative, flexible, and reliable, understand the colour wheel, love playing with colours, and find hiding imperfections and enhancing features fascinating, then this is the time to do a bridal make-up course. It is estimated that over 30 000 couples say their “I dos” during South Africa’s wedding season – and that number may even have increased.


What this means is that you need to get up and running as soon as possible. One can only think of the extra money you can make, and to top it off, this is a job that you can do on weekends, which leaves your week free for your normal job. Bridal make-up is a lucrative business, but in order to succeed in this highly competitive industry, you need the best of the best courses and qualifications behind your name.

When a woman looks at her wedding pictures ten years from now, you want them to still love the way the way her make-up looked.

This workshop covers everything you will need to know, such as face shapes, basic hygiene and sterilisation, eyebrow shaping, corrective and camouflage make-up, day and evening make-up, bridal makeup, basic colour and lighting, and contouring, as well as the correct application of false lashes.
