I took the Professional Make up course in the Covent Garden branch and I absolutly loved it! There were only 3 people in the group and we had live models every day. I learned so much about make up and how to start my own business as well. I now work as a freelance makeup artist and I have assisted at a couple of shows at London Fashion Week. My tutor was excellent and I'm glad I took this course.

Shelley, East London, Professional Make Up Course

I am a Hairdresser specialising in Bridal Hair styling. Many clients have asked over the years if I can do their make up so I decided to take the plunge and take a course. I did the Bridal Make Up with Katherine at the London Beauty Institute and I have now doubled my fees for weddings!

Stacy, 29 London, Bridal Make Up Course

I had always wanted to be a make up artist but at the age of 32 I thought that it was too late. I took the 1 week professional course at LBI. I learned an amount in 1 week I never thought possible. I practised on all different clients during the course and left with an amazing amount of confidence. I joined a couple of online agencies and have already had paid work. Fantastic life changing experience.
