Every student who does the 8 week full time Diploma in Make-up is provided with a professional make-up starter kit from Screenface London. This includes everything to begin your career.
Based in London until I was 30 with a make-up career spanning over 15 years. I began assisting established make-up artists after studying at The London College of Fashion. Upon finishing my training I began freelancing and this had a spring board effect which led me sourcing my own make-up work and having representation. My work is clean, clear and precise and attention to detail is crucial. The experience I have had stretches across the board ranging from T.V., film, music promos, fashion, advertising, editorial, commercial, weddings and corperate events, here in New Zealand, London and Italy.
