Period Make-up

Period Make-up

Bring the styles and fashions of previous times to life by learning the necessary make-up techniques on our Period Make-up course.

Before applying for this course, we ask that you have completed the Delamar Basic Beauty Make-up course or its equivalent.

What you will learn

You will learn how to research and use reference photos to create period looks with make-up for film, TV, and theatre. With so many popular film and TV dramas like Downton Abbey, Endeavour and Mad Men taking over our screens these days, its essential to understand the importance of authentic period styles.  

Periods covered will include the 1920s, 1930s, 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s and 1980s.

The course fee includes use of a brush set and some products included in our complete kit.

Where you will learn it

The light and airy classrooms of Delamar Academy are located within the world-famous Ealing Studios in West London. (You can learn more about Ealing Studios itself on our Get in touch page or on the Ealing Studios site itself.)

In our spacious classrooms, you will have your own personal workstation – including professional lighting and equipment. Ealing Studios is home to a number of other companies that form a real media community, with visual effects, production, editing, outside broadcast, and record companies all represented. There is also the Met Film School, which offers a first step in studio work experience for our own students when they work on graduate films.

Your next steps

In addition to the course prerequisite, there are only two requirements for entry to this course:

  • You must be at least 18 years old;
  • If English is not your first language, you must have a good standard of spoken English (equivalent to IELTS 6).

After a successful telephone interview, a deposit of £225 and a completed enrolment form will secure your place on the course. The remainder of the course fee is due before you start the course.
