Helsinki: new program in English

February 24, 2014

For the first time in Finnish history there is a comprehensive makeup course available in English language.

MAKE UP FOR EVER Academy Helsinki offers for the the first time in Finland's history a makeup course only in English language. This 2-month course is focused purely on beauty, fashion, photoshoots and runway makeup and intends on giving non-Finnish-speakers a chance to start working in the field of beauty makeup.

"There are a lot of people in Finland who would love to try makeup as a profession, but the language barrier always stops them from fulfilling their dream. Not anymore!", says Julius Sepponen, Director of the Helsinki Academy. Makeup artistry has been taught in Finland for 30 years and there even exists a state examination for it, but until now there has never been an extensive course delivered in English.
Some of the students already have a background in beauty and just want to improve their skills and get in touch with the Finnish industry but some are completely new to the field and are really looking forward to a career change. Some already have a beauty - or hairsalon - with English-speaking clientele so they will be looking forward to expanding their services into makeup.

The course has drawn interest from the neighbouring Baltic countries and St. Petersburg.

Join us for the first ever makeup course in English from April 14th to June 10th! Teaching is from Monday to Friday, 9am to 3pm.
