Vancouver Film School: Production, Animation, Game Design, Acting and more

Personal Makeup Kit

As a Makeup Design for Film & Television student, you receive a comprehensive personal makeup kit for use throughout the year – and beyond, as you begin your career as a professional makeup artist.

Your kit, valued in the thousands of dollars, contains top-of-the-line products that meet the production industry's rigorous standards. Not all makeup is created equal - the products in your kit are specific to the film and television industries, meaning they are generally more concentrated, and with considerably more pigment. As a result, they are longer wearing, better for the wearer's skin, and conform to the technically exacting criteria set by advanced lens-based technologies.

Leading companies and manufacturers worldwide contribute to the VFS Makeup Design program, recognizing that their products are being introduced to a new generation of artists and are used in the way they were designed and intended to be used. Some of our Industry Supply Partners are:
