Do you want to work for yourself? Gain a recognised makeup qualification in a short amount of time? Be able to gain insurance to get working as a makeup artist right away? Learn how to cut a crease like a pro? Discover what ‘baking’ is?  Makeup Manchester can help you!

We have offered makeup courses in Manchester at our city centre makeup studio since 2006. Our makeup courses consist of bespoke and Guild accredited makeup courses and hairstyling workshops to teach budding freelance makeup artists the skills to get ahead in the industry. Makeup courses are run throughout the year and are taught solely by qualified teacher and professional makeup artist Nancy Spencer, a top industry professional working in fashion and television. You will receive only top quality, professional training using all the up-to-date makeup brands and techniques.

Class sizes are kept to a minimum to ensure a more personal teaching environment and an accelerated learning process. Private makeup courses for individuals can be booked at anytime during the year and offer a one-to-one teaching service. Assisting and work experience roles are handed out to our students giving them the chance to work alongside Nancy in her freelance career. Check out our recent blog post Guide to Makeup Courses.

I have never learnt so much whilst having fun. Nancy is warm and welcoming and full of handy tips and tricks. The beauty of her classes is that they are small and it allows her to spend the time with you to help you progress and improve. I felt so relaxed and didn’t stop smiling over the 2 days. Even after I finished the course she has helped and advised me which I truly appreciated. Can’t wait to do her hair course.
