"The quality of makeup coming out of the Australian Institute of Creative Design is obscenely good." —Matt Leasegang, photographer.

The Diploma of Screen and Media is designed to prepare students to work as a professional makeup artist and hair stylist for fashion, bridal, retail and special effects. Students will develop a portfolio of work which will include day, evening, bridal and fashion makeup as well as casualty effects, character creation, bald caps and hair application.

During the year students will have four professional photoshoots, of which they will receive prints to include in their portfolio.

Students will have the opportunity to do make-up for fashion parades and events during the year, working with our fashion design students and also perform make-up for guest clients of all ages throughout the year.

AICD is ITEC approved, this means that our Diploma of Screen and Media has also been developed to the International Qualification standards of ITEC making the Diploma of Screen and Media unique in that is provides students with a dual qualification (National and International).
