Beauty & Makeup Slope


Welcome to our Beauty & Makeup Department

While classroom contact learning is important and critical to our beauty and makeup courses the hands on experience provided as part of their learning has been preparing our students for real-life experiences and how to care for clients and build relationships.  

While studying the fulltime ITEC beauty therapy courses students gain ongoing hands on experience in our own on-site beauty salon.

In the fulltime ITEC makeup artistry course relevant field trips & guest lectures are a central part to learning ensuring students are briefed on the most up to date and emerging trends in industry.

Our makeup graduates go on to work with the biggest names in the industry such as MAC, Dior and Inglot and our fashion graduates securing buying and merchandising roles with Arnotts, Dunnes Stores, Brown Thomas and Penneys. 

We are delighted to share just some of our success stories from happy graduates who achieved their ultimate dream.
