Education That Goes Beyond the Classroom


At The Academy of Makeup, we’re here to support you – even after your course ends. That’s why we launched our Aftercare program in 2011 and why we’re so proud of the results. We understand that training with us is just the first step in your professional beauty career, which is why our aftercare is designed to support you as you develop as an artist in your field.

Since its launch, we’ve provided thousands of work experience opportunities to our graduates and the scheme continues to grow.

We know that nothing beats experience and that work provides you with the chance to build your confidence, improve your skills and grow your professional network.

Our teams have worked at some of the biggest events in the UK, including London Fashion Week, The Commonwealth Games, The MTV EMAs, Scotland Re:Designed, The Scottish Style Awards, The Scottish Wedding Show, The Edinburgh Military Tattoo, The Herald Fashion Awards and The MOBOs. We work closely with other creative teams such as the Glasgow School of Art and the Glasgow University Charity Fashion Show. We were also the official makeup sponsors of Gok Wan's Fashion Brunch Club.
