For ages I looked around for the perfect make up course for me, I’m so glad I picked Sculpt Beauty Intensive 5 day course! I had no previous make up experience and now I have the ability and confidence to go out there and provide a service. Uzma is a brilliant teacher, not only does she teach you the techniques, she goes into depth and explains why you are doing it. Uzma also gives you tips and advice from what she has learnt from her past experiences (some of these tips are really helpful) The Smoke and Rouge products are brilliant to work with and you can create some flawless looks! I never in a million years thought I’d be able to achieve what I did in 5 days! So excited about my future career and where this can take me. Thank you Uzma

Dalit Sahota, London

I thoroughly enjoyed my course at London Makeup Institute, the whole experience with them was professional yet set in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. I was taught my Uzma herself. She really took the time to understand each students needs and although there were varying levels of experience and skill in my class, each students needs were catered to. I had some prior experience but still walked away with a range of new skills and knowledge and really felt as though Uzma pushed my skills to their limits to ensure I go the best experience from my course. I would thoroughly recommend London Makeup Institute to anyone looking to train as a professional artist.

Ella Whitlock, London

“I’ve learnt so much this week and had the best time. My confidence has grown so much and I feel excited to start my career in make-up. With Uzma’s help, my skills have developed and LMI really is the best place to learn. It has been the most tiring, busy week but the excitement and buzz at the school makes every day so fun. I’m really going to miss LMI and everyone I have met but I can’t wait to go out and start being a make-up artist!”

Sabiha Nazir, Kingston

“Thank you so much Sculpt Beauty (London Make-up Institute). I have learnt so much in the past week! You have not only been supportive but also given me the confidence to start my own business. I definately made the right choice by choosing the London Make-up Institute. Thank you again.”

Ganya Watkins, London 

“ Before starting the course I was thinking how much could I learn in 5 days would I be confident enough after leaving and the answer is yes I felt like I learnt so much. Everyone was so supportive and especially on our photoshoot day they helped and pushed you when needed! And I would recommend this course to anyone and everyone ! 🙂 ”

Hanan Khalil, London

“Never have I learnt so much in such little time. Before enrolling into the course I was hesitant because I wasn’t sure how much anyone could learn in 5 days. However, all that I experienced within those 5 days broadened my insight on makeup to more than what I knew. We covered so many looks and processes in detail. It has really been a turning point for me as I look to progress my career as a makeup artist.”

Amna Sahib, Epsom 

“Being trained by the Sculpt Beauty team and Uzma has been a truly valuable and immensely enjoyable experience! Uzma is not only a really lovely person but is such a positive, committed and dedicated teacher and mentor! There are so many different training courses available out there however like all education if you want the best degree/result you go to the best school,university, academy or institution and in the case of make up – sculpt beauty is without a shadow of the doubt the best institute if you want to become a professional artist! I can boldly say that because the teaching methods are so well thought and structured in order to maximise the knowledge gained by students. The class sizes are kept small too, which meant that not only were we all given focussed attention but the atmosphere throughout the course was perfectly balanced between relaxed, friendly yet still professional. The team are like a family so the warmth of that is felt throughout! All this is on top of the skills, bases and techniques which are taught at such an expert level! That being said the most valuable asset which has been given to me by the course is the level of confidence I have gained!! Sculpt Beauty let you walk out (reluctantly as we all loved the course so much!!) at the end of the week with more than we could’ve expected to gain and continue to support your career even after the course ends via their agency!  I want to really thank Uzma and Anum for their support, encouragement and for teaching and giving me the skills and confidence to go out and follow my passion for make up artistry! Best decision I’ve made!”

“Before starting my course with Sculpt Beauty, I was worried that I would not be able to learn much in just 5 days, but I can honestly say, although it was an intense week,I have learnt so much in such a short space of time whilst also enjoying myself. The teaching was great and the teachers were really helpful and always open for questions, especially because I know they are still offering support and help even after my course has ended. I now feel that I can go into the industry and excel with the confidence I have gained within this week. I will definitely be recommending Sculpt Beauty to my family and friends.”

Sadia Mirza, Manchester 

“Before I started the course I was really nervous and didn’t know whether I’d enjoy the course due to my health issues. I was very fortunate that the course took place in London and not outside of the UK. Lol. But on my first day I told Anum my situation and she comforted me and supported me throughout. The course didn’t only teach me how to apply make up professionally but it also taught me the confidence and professionalism I need to carry when I work which was perfect. Definitely recommended. Uzma helped a lot on the shoot day where I all most lost hope but she pushed me to the best of my ability. I’m really happy with the results and the outcome of it. It was worth the money. Everything was taught to a professional standard and the team was really supportive and I don’t think you can find a team so supportive, chilled, relaxed and amazing anywhere else. Everything was taught step by step and would be repeated if necessary which is crucial as I know people don’t do that in many places. It’s been a successful journey and was very beneficial. I’m so glad I joined sculpt beauty. I couldn’t thank Sculpt Beauty enough words aren’t enough to express it. The course overall was outstanding and I loved it beyond words.”

Devika Patel, London 

“I thoroughly enjoyed myself throughout the whole course. Initially, I took the short 2 day course and decided I loved it so much I went on to complete the full 5 days. Both Anum and Uzma are dedicated teachers with patience and tenacity to ensure you are pushed to your limits. They spent time to ensure I perfected each brush stroke and taught me to maintain the same perfection every time I applied make up. I found them extremely supportive and would recommend the classes to anyone!”

Ashley Green, Dubai 

“I completely enjoyed my training at Sculpt Beauty. The relaxed atmosphere put my initial nerves at ease and within hours I was fully  immersed in learning my new skills. Uzma’s teaching style brought me from complete beginner to professional make up artist at the end of the course and I am excited to see what I can do in the future with my new found skills and confidence. The amazing kit given to me at the beginning of the course has provided me with everything I need to hit the ground running in the make up industry and I would recommend Sculpt Beauty products and training to everyone. Thanks Uzma!”

Shazia Bi, London

“I began my course with Sculpt beauty as I believed that this would help me in carrying out professional make up for brides and artists.  As I am studying an Nvq programme on beauty treatments this course has complemented my practical experience. I have used the skills learnt of shading, highlighting and blending to archive great results on a regular basis ever since .   Uzma and her team did a fantastic job in working with customers and consistently exceeded customer expectations.  This programme really allows you to learn the skills needed to carry out professional make up.  I would recommend this programme to all make up artists as i have learnt a lot of skills.”

Kim Blair, Ireland

“My time at Sculpt Beauty has given me a skillset that is a cut above the rest, and confidence that I never thought I had, all backed up with a worldwide BABTAC accredited certificate. I couldn’t have been taught by a more dedicated team of tutors, and I thank them for all their hard work in the beginning of my journey as a professional makeup artist.”

It was brilliant, thank you.”

Eleni Kyriakou, London

“The course was a fabulous way of learning about make up in detail.  The team that was put together to run the course was fun, professional and easy to work with.  I found that the environment was very welcoming to people that were new to make-up and those that have had some experience before.  The course was mostly practical and only partly theoretical, which is great for people who prefer to work hands on.  The training is delivered in a way that was easy to   understand for everyone, Uzma Yakoob who is the person that delivers the training, she is very approachable and any questions small or big she took the time to explain them making you feel that you are being listened to.  With this course you will gain a detailed knowledge of make-up in an enthusiastic and passionate way.  The course had such and impact on me and gave me exactly what I needed that I could do this every day.  It was inspirational.

What a wonderful start to my dream career! ”

Zobia Khatana, London

Choosing a makeup training academy can be a daunting and exhausting task. There are so many make up academies offering you different things and the training itself can be expensive, therefore I decided to research them all thoroughly before applying to them. With an open mind I contacted several academies that caught my eye. Some got back to me and others didn’t even bother! Once I got down to the final few academies that interested me, I sent them an e-mail asking any possible questions (literally every question possible!) I could possibly think of, there was a very long list! However the fantastic admin team, Sam and Zak got back to me and answered any questions I had. I then ended up calling to speak to Sam but ended up having a 40 minute long conversation with Uzma herself! Uzma was just lovely on the phone and I was surprised that I was actually able to speak to her. What helped me make my decision was that at no point did Uzma say come to my academy or say anything negative about any other academies. She simply discussed what was involved in Sculpt Beauty’s academy and said ‘you know when you will find something that is right for you, you will just know’. I booked into the course straight away after speaking to Uzma.   The course itself is an intense, intense, intense 5 days course! We had a really lovely, experienced and generally an all-round nice teacher, Anum. The key benefits I would say are: Classes kept small – What I loved about the course were classes were kept to a small number of 4. This allowed Anum to tailor and pace her class around us. It’s also made it more fun as a group we all were much closer. Makeup Kit – Sculpt beauty provides you with a kit to start of your makeup artist career. This is really handy to start you off with. I personally loved the 120 high pigmented pro palette. Make up agency – this was one of the biggest reason that I decided to go with Sculpt Beauty. Sculpt Beauty have their own make up agency to support you with your career. Therefore you are not left completely on your own after the course. I look forward to receiving my first job with them! Uzma Yakoob – I don’t think there will be many training academies that will have the owner watch over you like Uzma did. Uzma was always there during the course despite not teaching us. She overlooked the whole final day photo shoot and personally helped me throughout the course. Uzma even dropped things to come to see us during her day off to help us as a group. Even though the course has finished, I am still in touch with her 🙂  The course personally for me was great. I enjoyed my experience, made friends with people and also have the backing of a reputable training academy. You will not walk out with exceptionally great talents after a 5 day course, you have to be realistic. However I will say you will learn the relevant skills and knowledge to start you off as becoming a makeup artist as long as it is practiced.   I’m happy with the course and would like to take the opportunity to say a massive thank you to Uzma and Anum for being so encouraging of my work and motivating me throughout the course and then the admin team Sam and Zak for being so great!
