Student Testimonials

The Two Week Foundation course was amazing. Now looking to save up my holidays to come back and do the Creative course. Great experience and would recommend the school to anyone thinking of doing a makeup course.’ – Fareena Patel
I joined the Two Week IMA Foundation Course earlier this year and loved it so much that I extended it for two more weeks and covered the Creative as well. I’m now the proud owner of an International Make-up Certificate.’ – Zara Finch
I completed the 8 week Photographic & Media course at The London School of Make-up a few weeks ago and can honestly say it was spectacular. I learned so much from the wonderful celebrity artists who came and taught us each day leaving me feeling confident in going out in to the industry and following my new career.’ – Louise O’Grady

I will recommend the school one million times over. …..see u soon London school of makeup for the creative course. Till we meet again. – Olayanju Arowosaye-Lawal

I have just completed the 8 week IMA make up course. I visited a few make up schools around London and I knew the London school of make-up was definitely the one I wanted to do after visiting. I really loved the structure of the course, the first two weeks we were taught from scratch and after that we had a different variety of make-up artists everyday teaching us their skills. I feel like I have come away with all the best professional techniques and ideas! – Chelsey Barnett

Truly enjoyed the 4-week course at The London School of Make Up. Learned new techniques from lovely instructors and gave me a good overview about the industry and how to get started as a make-up artist. 🙂 – Jesy Angeli
