Being a make-up artist can be a fulfilling and lucrative career. However, getting started in this field can be tough because many clients will want to see your work before they’re willing to hire you. Building a portfolio of your work is the first step to getting higher-paying jobs and becoming a successful makeup artist.

At  London Make-up Academy, in most our courses we provide you with a photo shoot to kick start your career. If a shoot is not included with your course, we can offer this to you at a reasonable price just covering our costs. As long as you have trained with us, this service is there for you to help elevate your career.

During the shoot day, you will learn how to work with professional models and photographers, learn to choreograph, work under pressure and organise a shoot, and also how to style. This is a very important part of the course as it will probably be the first time you get a real feel to how it feels to work as a make up artist and what is expected of you.


Makeup Kit

As a LMI student, we provide you kits in some of the courses we have on offer. As a Make-up Artists it is important that you use the right make-up to practice. We ensure that you use the right formulations. As a trainee we understand that buying your kit can be quite expensive so we you will receive a full make-up artist’s professional make-up kit!
