  • Our tutors are freelance makeup artists, coming into the academy to teach our students as guest lecturers. This means your tutor has come directly from applying makeup or styling the hair for top magazine covers and editorials, famous celebrities & designers and the world’s premier Fashion Weeks, bringing with them current, up-to-date skills and techniques. You can’t get more insider industry knowledge than that.

    Most other schools offer students a full time teacher with maybe one or two guest teachers coming in over the duration of the hair and makeup courses. This means the student only gets one perspective of teaching. At The Make Up Crew our teachers come from all sectors of the industry and with more than 15 makeup artists making up the Crew team you will be spoilt for choice, as you will have an array of individual skills to learn from.

    Our makeup courses are taught by a different teacher each week, no one class is the same and you are offered a wider breadth of skills and techniques for each makeup module. This gives our students more makeup application insight, tips, tricks and industry know-how than you can get anywhere.

    At The Make Up Crew it is our mission to provide an exceptional experience for our students before, during and after their training as professional make-up artists. We are also committed to providing our students with premium quality products and unparalleled service.
