Professional Levels: There are 8 progressive training levels at INDIGO STUDIOS. They begin with Professional Beauty Makeup and progress to Professional Fashion Makeup, Professional Photography through Professional Video Makeup – all the way to Professional Opera and Cinema Makeup Design. The curriculum is strictly of a visual design structure, meaning, it is a not a cosmetics and care study. It teaches corrective and design principles of pigments and basis, and shapes and forms of makeup, in a photographic way.
Course System: Lesson/ Demonstration 1x per week (8 weeks total).
PhotoShoot of successfully prepared projects: by scheduling (4 mandatory photo shoots - other per invitation by the Studio).
Each Professional Course at any level consists of 8 demonstrations and 4 photoshoots.
Final Exam: At the end of 8 weeks/cycles the artist will create a Photo Shoot project without preparation and feedback. It will be photographed, and evaluated by a jury. The results will be delivered with a Certificate of Attendance if the artist satisfies the requirements.

The Course is non-refundable.

Practical Experience & Networking: As a working Studio, we try to promote our professionals within Luxembourg and the Grand Region. There are many projects which the Studio is a part of, from the many Fashion Shows to the Beauty Pageants and Magazine Shoots. The artists will be invited to participate as a part of their course to gain experience and meet and network. These projects are not obligatory, but rather created to promote and develop a working environment around this specific art form.
