In this course, we will be exploring the challenging, creative and artistic world of Avant Garde and fantasy makeups, focusing on enhancing confidence and technical skills.

Avant Garde is a highly fashion and art driven area, in which artists push themselves to think outside of the box and ahead of the curve; translating literally as ‘advance guard’, Avant Garde refers to those who scout ahead of the pack, pushing the boundaries and challenging expectations.

As makeup artists become more advanced, they are able to consider new ways to use their tools and products, letting their creativity flow and emphasising the ‘artist’ in their title.

We will explore techniques and tricks to assist the application of more dramatic and outgoing looks, nipping common errors and obstacles in the bud as we go!

This course breaks everything down into bitesize pieces as we make creating these complex & creative looks less daunting & achievable even for those that are just starting out!

ADDED BONUS You also receive access to our Publication Brief Opportunity with this course when completing the final Brief Task.

Lynne Mills / Founder

Hello & thank you for being here!

I'm Lynne & the founder of Girl Meets Brush. For those of you that don't know my story already I started out as a MUA back in 2004.

Since starting my career I have been very fortunate to set up & run my make-up team all over the country & work on some amazing projects! From working with celebrities, setting up a international brand collaborating with Eylure & Harvey Nichols, to having my work featured in publications such as Vogue & Sunday Times Style.

This has all lead me to set up Girl Meets Brush the Academy to work with make-up artist to create their own amazing businesses!

Building yourself as a brand & succeeding in business, is not just about the technique of applying make-up, but it's knowing about how to build that client base, carve your career & be a working successful make-up artist, and this doesn't mean jetting off to London & New York leaving your family behind (although you can if you like I guess!).

It is most importantly building the success right where you already are & in this growing industry the opportunity is all there, trust me!

“My mission is to help & support aspiring make-up artists to produce high quality, timeless & stylish work that will put them ahead of their peers."
