Pro-makeup has cemented its position as one of the most recognised and unrivalled fashion, editorial, catwalk and bridal makeup academies. Due to our industry success, creative make up courses and unique education concept, there are many schools like us. However they don’t come close to our level of fashion industry expertise, contacts, work opportunities or the commitment we give to our graduates. We are proud to have taught some of the leading hair and makeup artists as well as fashion and beauty editors from the most prestigious fashion magazines and newspapers. Slide through this section to see our unique points and what makes promakeup Academy like no other.
Our grads are real award winners and we are so proud of them! promakeup graduates have won the Professional Best Makeup Artist of the Year, as well as the Clothes Show Live Emerging Makeup Artist of the Year. So, as you can imagine, it makes us very proud and goes to show how we give them the head start to make it in the industry. Not only are our graduates award winners but our tutors are too! Our promakeup Pro tutor Shiv was the Best Makeup Artist of the Year in 2014 and also he was shortlist for IFMA in China
Our class sizes are kept small to maximise learning and to build teacher-student bonds.This enables us to offer a much higher level of personal attention from artist to student. Our teachers pride themselves on always being approachable and understanding, as they know that students are investing in their careers and were in your position when they started out. Our trainers are there to always help and support you along the way. We offer the best international trainers in the business! This teaching style sets us apart from any other institution, ensuring you receive the highest level of one-to-one training from our tutors throughout your course.
The most IMPORTANT tool to a makeup artist is a portfolio of images that you can present and promote yourself and your work to a potential client. We give our students the chance to explore their creativity in an organized photoshoot like no other. Our students work with hand picked industry specialists to create outstanding work for their portfolios. Our teachers and amazing fashion stylists are on hand to help you create some stunning looks. Professional fashion models from leading model agencies will be provided for you to work with. Shortly after your shoot you will be given all the low-resolution images. From there you can pick which images you would like professionally retouched for your portfolio. Please note that retouching your images is not included in the course fee. If you decide not to get your images professionally retouched you can request up to 8 images in high-resolution from the photographer (if you decide to take this route then you will not be allowed to credit the photographer in the image). This is a great opportunity for you to jump-start your career and start booking work as a professional makeup artist! Be aware we use only professional models compared to most schools that use street models or make you bring in a friend which does not give you a professional finish or have a professional industry standard.
Our philosophy is to give every student the most up-to-date industry tools when training. To be the best in the business you need to understand how to use your products. This is one of the most important elemts of being a good makeup artist. If you don’t understand products and the wide range of brands available, it will limit your ability to be the best makeup artist. A makeup artist will never use just one brand but work from a selection of different ones. We don’t believe in supplying makeup kits because this will limit the amount of product knowledge a student learns throughout their training. In most cases schools will supply their own brand of cosmetics or a very limited kit to work from. This will not give any student a proper understanding of product knowledge. In the classroom students will have a base kit of products to work from throughout the course, but more impressively the opportunity to use full ranges from the most prestigious and luxury makeup brands on the market. We don’t just offer a few products from each range we offer the entire range! You won’t find a school with more products choice than promakeup.
The Academy and our artists take pride in giving our students the very best personal attention and headstart to their careers. This is why we established the first ever personal shopping day during our courses. One of our artists takes the students out shopping and helps you build your makeup and hair kits. We introduce you to store managers and staff, which enables you to build more industry contacts and relationships, but best of all to take advantage of discounts exclusive to promakeup.
Our unique relationships with leading cosmetic houses allow us to offer a much wider range of discount programs! These exclusive discounts are run through the Academy from a wide range of stores and brands. All discounts schemes are subject to promakeup campus. Brands and stores include: MAC, Bobbi Brown, Makeup Forever ,Kryolan and many many more. There’s just not enough room on the page!
