As working make-up artists, we understand how difficult it can be to break in to this tough industry. Training and gaining qualifications only gets you so far. The simple fact is, the more experience you can get, the better make-up artist you become and therefore, the more employable you are. Amy was given amazing opportunities by peers early on in her career and feels passionately about giving their students the same start.
Sussex Makeup Academy offer you work experience, shadowing, assistant jobs and paid work through the Sussex Make-up Academy to introduce you to first hand experience from on-set filming, photographic work, assisting with weddings and more.
Please contact us for more information and for upcoming work opportunities
