Special Effects

This unique program was created to challenge qualified makeup artists with advanced technique and Special Effects training.

The program is completely hands on and because of our small class sizes our students always get plenty of personal attention from our experienced trainers.

Students will discover the latest makeup techniques for film, TV and fashion. The Huxley School of Makeup pursues the highest training standards to ensure our students reach their educational objectives. Our strict application process filters students with dedication and passion for makeup artistry.

All students will develop a strong portfolio with their work shot by a professional fashion photographer several times during the course. Their portfolio is an exciting reward that students can take with them into the professional world to demonstrate their skills.
