Are you dreaming of a fantastic career in makeup? Do you want to work for yourself? Are you intrigued how to cut a crease? Do you want to know how to achieve a flawless glowing skin? Would you love to achieve a recognised makeup qualification in a short amount of time? Do you want to gain insurance to start working as a makeup artist right away?


Nancy has taught makeup courses in Manchester at our Covid-19 safe city centre makeup studio since 2006. Our makeup courses consist of bespoke and accredited makeup courses and hairstyling workshops to teach budding freelance makeup artists the skills to get ahead in the industry.

Our 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 and hair styling courses for individuals can be booked at anytime during the year and we can also offer a one-to-one teaching service.

Assisting and work experience roles are handed out to our students where possible, 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.
