What makes The Iver Makeup Academy different to other makeup schools?
We know what is required of a trainee makeup artist in each field, so our graduates leave here with this knowledge and more. There are a lot of techniques that can’t be taught in a short course. It is not possible to fast track into this career. We are also very focused on the soft skills required in this very competitive industry. Our courses are designed to build on all the skills needed to succeed and are very highly respected by the people looking to hire.
How do you choose your students?
In terms of existing skills, we don’t expect anyone applying for our beginners’ courses to have any prior experience, but we do require applicants to show a level of artistic ability. During an interview, applicants will be asked to supply a small portfolio of work. This doesn’t need to be makeup work necessarily. We just want to see that you have artistic ability. We can teach you the rest.
