This NPA is the only Makeup Skills National Progression Award at SCQF level 5 offered by an Awarding Organisation. This qualification provides candidates with skills in the key aspects of makeup. This NPA focuses on specific makeup styles including young, mature and corrective techniques.
With no formal entry qualification requirements, this NPA is suitable for a wide range of candidates from school leavers to adult learners who wish to gain entry into the beauty industry, or who are considering applying to further Makeup Artistry courses in the future.
This is the perfect choice for learners who might have full-time work or family commitments. We cover make-up techniques including how to apply the perfect base, contouring and essential skills for classic make-up looks. This course is a great starting point for a role in a salon or in retail, or could be a stepping stone onto one of our full-time courses.
