ACSM makeup short courses in Perth

Halloween workshop

Learn how to (safely) create whimsical and terrifying characters this spooky season. Over the one-day Halloween workshop you’ll have plenty of opportunities to practice vampire bites, werewolf scratches, zombie bites, bullet wounds, cuts and blood.

This one isn’t for kids: you must be over 16 to join the cursed course!

Advanced Halloween makeup workshop

Take your costume up a level this year in our advanced Halloween makeup course. Best suited to people with special effects industry experience or a makeup qualification, the skills you learn in 8 hours will be terrifying – in a good way!
Practical skills are the focus here, including how to safely apply prosthetics using pros-aide (Bondo) transfers and encapsulated silicone pieces.

Teen makeup workshop

Your exclusive chance to learn from an ACSM lecturer and expand your makeup knowledge using real industry equipment supplied by us.

The one-day teen makeup workshop covers everything from which brush to use for what product, choosing the right foundation, brow grooming, hair styling – there’s even a photo shoot for your Insta followers.

Bald cap application

Normally reserved for our Diploma of Screen and Media students, ACSM is now offering one-day bald cap workshops in Perth.
Anyone can attend the workshop (although some interest in SFX makeup is handy). You’ll learn the tips, tools and materials to create that seamless bald cap look for yourself.

Life casting workshop

Life casting is a core skill for any special effects makeup artist. Our one-day practical workshop will teach you what life casts are, why they’re needed and the process to prepare prosthetics for a production.

This is a great workshop for people with experience (self-taught or otherwise) looking to learn a few industry secrets.

Drag makeup workshop

Over the course of a full fabulous day, you will learn how to create jaw-dropping drag characters using your own makeup kit. Think brow blocking, dramatic contouring, dazzling colours and contouring to die for.

Our drag makeup workshop involves a lot of learning and even more fun.
