Issada Cosmetics are offering their salons, spas and clinics the chance to expand their knowledge and up-skill by attending an Issada Masterclass in 2013.

In the masterclasses, Issada makeup experts will provide a professional level of education, covering key focus areas within makeup artistry.

2013 classes include Mature Skins, Retailing Makeup, Contouring and Highlighting, Face Shapes and Colour Theory, Bridal and Photographic, Makeup and Formal Makeup, Party Makeup, Smokey Eyes and False Lash application. There is even a masterclass this year on how to host a makeup workshop in your salon or spa.

These topics were chosen in response to client feedback, and general market research on what makeup areas are required or requested most in a salon environment.

Issada also offers selected one-on-one masterclasses for individual students from Issada stockists on a topic of their choice. These two-hour custom classes can be booked to fit in with the student’s schedule and cost $85.

Issada masterclasses are comprised of a detailed theory component, with a comprehensive written compendium for students to retain as a reference tool. Students practice a range of different looks on various models of differing ages, face shapes, skin-tones, and makeup preferences.

To ensure students are at comparable levels, masterclasses are to be attended only by salon staff who have already completed Issada’s initial two-day training module. This free training is run monthly for new salon staff or those wanting a refresher, and includes a comprehensive product knowledge course on day one and a basic practical application course on day two.

Masterclass numbers are restricted to a maximum of five per session, to ensure that each student benefits from personal one-on-one tuition. The half-day masterclass courses are held at the Issada head office and training facility in Brisbane, Queensland and are attended by salon and spa Issada stockists from all around Australia.
