Learn the Art of Make-up
About Us: The Makeover Studio School of Make-up has an excellent reputation for teaching make-up artistry. As an established and accredited training school our aim is to provide you with relevant information and practical skills along with specialist background knowledge.
Flexible Learning Courses: Our courses offer a flexible and affordable learning programme providing practical training over one, two or three days. Courses are run in small groups of 4 or on a 1-2-1 basis. Each has been carefully planned and designed to ensure you experience the fundamental principles and practice of make-up artistry over an intensive, short period of time.
Some courses allow you to choose the level of training you wish to receive; either practical training only or to include an industry based self study pack. The self study pack option provides additional study which is designed for newcomers to the industry. It will reinforce the practical skills taught in class, whilst providing additional background and industry knowledge which will allow you to both experiment and grow in confidence.
