The London School of Make-up is proud to offer one of the most prestigious international qualifications for the make-up industry – the IMA (International Make-up Association). The IMA is an independent awarding body who set standards for make-up academy education, which is recognised by the industry throughout most of the world and by leading fashion cosmetic companies.

The IMA provides an industry benchmark for the make-up artist and those who wish to employ a make-up artist.

This is achieved through the following:

  • Attendance
  • Evidence of Practical Skills
  • Theory Paper
  • Course Work
  • Evaluation
  • External Examinations

This internationally recognised qualification is not an in-house school attendance certificate instead it is a completely independent from The London School of Make-Up and is offered in many schools throughout the world from 15 Cities: Beirut • Birmingham • Dubai • Leicester • London • Madrid • Malaga • Mexico City • Moscow • New Delhi • Nicosia • Querétaro • Sofia • Tijuana

Over the past 10 years over a million make-up students have attended and registered at a make-up school somewhere in the world who offer the IMA qualification and are now benefitting from its standards.
