The course, which costs Dhs13,000 in total, only takes on 11 students at a time, so you’ll get plenty of attention—and you can pick morning or evening classes to fit in with your schedule.

ESMOD’s short courses, however, are ideal for women looking to upgrade their DIY skills with an intensive blast of training.

The two-day option (Dhs2,100) gives you four hours of personalised lessons, to help you achieve anything from a flawless base to the perfect smoky eye.


The four-day option (Dhs4,200), made up 16 hours of classes, teaches more advanced techniques and finishes, to help you apply makeup like a pro from the comfort of your own home.

And for beauty buffs looking to forge a career in the industry after their course, the institute is on hand to offer help and advice, as well as regularly sharing any opportunities it receives from beauty companies with its students.
