You will spend the week learning theory & using techniques such as prostheses, face painting, block out make up,  bruises, blood and ageing make up.  You will be working on live models within the practical sessions where our tutors will take you step by step through each process ensuring that you receive plenty of one to one time with them, well as the opportunity to really develop your skills.  This course gives you a real and through insight into the trade and will help you  break into this inspiring and rewarding industry.

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.

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.
