Student Testimonials

I joined LSM for the 2-week creative course and it was outstanding! The course Content and teachers were excellent and definately left a mark on me. I look forward to coming back to attend more Courses for sure. Whether you are an aspiring makeup artist or already a make up artist looking to refresh/upgrade your skills, LSM is the perfect school. All my best to the LSM family. 

Dana Kalaoui – Graduated January 2018

So I’m a wedding freelance hairdresser, (Oxfordshire bridal hair )is my instagram and Facebook page.
I wanted to expand into wedding makeup as a natural passion of mine. I did a lot of research before booking the course and spoke to wedding makeup artists about there training and a few people studied here.
I really enjoyed the 3-day Foundation & Bridal Course although if you are a very beginner it’s extremely fast paced and a lot of brilliant information to take in. Especially day 1. Day 2 was brilliant did evening makeup “day one did day makeup” 3rd day was bridal makeup includes great information for how to market yourself, website and how to prep the skin properly to ensure it lasts all day.
Overall excellent staff- great knowledge and approachable! I asked so many questions and lots of notes got to practice make up every afternoon on each other in the class.
Definitely recommend and thank you very much to all the staff especially Kerry, Charlotte and Diane

This is the best makeup school in London, courses are very informative and practical, teachers are full of knowledge and eager to share it with the students and the LSM team members are very welcoming and helpfull! Also, you get to work with great products and have access to amazing discounts for your makeup kit! I did the 8 week IMA make up course, it’s great value for money! Thank you LSM!

Estefania Sanchez Bardellini – Graduated December 2017

I traveled all the way from Jordan for a 2-week IMA foundation course, and I enjoyed every single second i spent it in this school. It taught me everything I needed to know to become a professional makeup artist. Thanks to my lovely teachers; Amanda and Nyssa

Lara Kanan – Graduated September 2017

I attended the 3-day Foundation and Bridal Course for day, evening and bridal makeup. I can highly recommend this course. My teacher was Charlotte, who was amazing. Taught us so much in the space of three days and the aftercare was brilliant, any questions/queries Charlotte was happy to help. I came back yesterday evening to take my exam and passed. Couldn’t recommend this course/school enough. Looking forward to going back for further courses…. this is just the beginning. Thank you Charlotte and everyone else at the school. X
Kelly Tilbury – Graduated March 2017
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.

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. 🙂
