As a student at The London School of Media Make Up you will be taught by working make-up professionals using the latest products, brushes and tools in our working photographic & film studio in Islington.

As a student at The London School of Media Make Up you will receive the best support & mentoring that continues after your graduation and into your career. We actively encourage engagement between tutors, alumni & students throughout your studies and afterwards.

On our Diploma courses you will have access to life coaching sessions, career development, brand training, social media strategy, business skills and professional etiquette.

We take your professional suitability and future employment very seriously, at the end of our Diploma courses we organise professional portfolio shoots on agency models in order for you to graduate with your own set images and all other necessary business tools. LSMM graduates have a better start into the industry due to their professional understanding, makeup portfolio and the experience that allows them to explore the industry quicker and more effectively.

Trainee experience is guaranteed as part of our Diploma programmes and is supported by The LSMM Makeup Agency. We will organise your placement through our existing connections and knowledge of the industry.

We have an active pool of contacts spanning across all industries from production companies to directors & producers, who call upon us for make-up artists from all stages in their careers: trainee through to designer. Students should take full advantage of all these opportunities and in many cases you will be offered paid trainee placements through The LSMM Make-up Agency.

Placement times may vary in length and you will be supported throughout your experience and training.
