Description

Unit descriptor

This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to design, apply and remove standard make-up for productions in the screen, media and entertainment industries.

No licensing, legislative, regulatory or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of endorsement.

Application of the unit

Make-up artists apply the skills and knowledge described in this unit, which covers the design, application and removal of standard make-up for performers and/or talent appearing in films, television shows or photographic shoots.

Creativity is the key to being a successful make-up artist, along with the ability to design make-up that meets production requirements and brings out, or builds on, the subject's best features. Good communication skills are also essential, since make-up artists need to create a work environment where performers and/or talent feel at ease.

Depending on the nature of the job, a make-up artist can work alone, as an assistant to a more senior colleague or as part of a make-up design team. Employment is usually on a contract basis and hairstyling skills are often required.

More complex skills associated with the application of period, specialised and special effects make-up are covered in:

  • CUFMUP501A Design and apply specialised make-up
  • CUFMUP502A Design and apply special make-up effects.
