“The 3 day Beginners Make Up Course was amazing! The tutors was very friendly and allowed me to explore my skills even beyond the normal remit of the course. I learnt so much in only 3 days and really hope to return soon. Would recommend to anyone looking to develop their make up artistry skills.” – Caroline Ball
