Amy Prifti

Hello,

 

I’m Amy.  I set up Sussex Make-up Academy in 2014 having been a key educator at Kryolan, Sussex Downs College and various colleges around the UK for the last 10 years.

 

We moved in to our permanent premises in Lewes, East Sussex in January 2017 and are adding courses all the time to suit the requirements of our students.

 

I set up Sussex Make-up Academy due to my experience teaching at colleges around the country and realising that not all colleges were preparing their students for a career in make-up artistry.  Not all students were taught to industry standard and no-one was being offered business guidance, mentoring and support.  Sussex Make-up Academy offers all of this plus more – just ask our past students.

 

We offer flexible training including 1-1 courses to fit around your current lifestyle and will support you all the way to get to where you would like to be.

 

So, what experience do I have in the industry?

I can’t possibly write everything that I have worked on (I have tried my hardest) but my career has been so varied from working with designers and brands to making wigs for theatre.  I will try to update as I remember more things that I have worked on, if you would like to see my professional make-up site, this can be found here – http://www.amyprifti.co.uk and my bridal website (although out of date and in desperate need of updating) can be found here – http://www.bridalmakeupbyamy.co.uk

 

 

Many thanks for taking the time to look.  I look forward to meeting you.

 

All the best

 

Amy
