Semi-permanent Cosmetics

Semi-permanent Cosmetics Training – Beginners Level

Course Outline

During the Smudge-free semi-permanent cosmetics course (excluding trial lesson), Andrew will help you compile a professional portfolio which will be required so your prospective clients can view your before and after images. Your portfolio will be the best marketing tool for your business. Our beginner’s course in semi-permanent cosmetics will teach you how to create truly stunning procedures with ease and minimal discomfort to your clients. Smudge-free have developed techniques which are now practised by many in the industry, including those who have completed our refresher courses to update their equipment and skills.

The Smudge-free Beginner’s Semi-Permanent Cosmetics Course runs over a four-day period which is broken down into modules so you get a feel for the techniques and complete your case study for each module in between. We feel that too much, too quickly is overwhelming, as you need time to grasp certain aspects of the course.

We do not put our students under pressure but there is a lot of theory to learn in between modules, and we do encourage them to put in the practice hours as best results will only be achieved when maximum effort is applied.
