I had a great time learning at the make-up academy. I didn't realise quite how much work was going to go into not only our lessons, but the work and research we had to do at home. We learned so much in 6 weeks including tips and tricks when doing make-up, and learning that you don't need to use the same brand of product as a make-up artist. Our tutor was Leigh, and I have to say, I gelled with him straight away. He was fun, hilarious and very interesting. He pushed us to the limit and was always telling us how we could improve and giving constructive criticism without putting us down. The best part of the make-up academy is knowing all your hard work pays off and you are rewarded a certificate at the end. I really enjoyed my time at the make-up academy and I'm hoping to go back to complete a few more courses.

When i first started my ocn with the mua i was excited yet had no experience or confidence when it came to applying make up. The course tutor was v welcoming and friendly which was a great help. The course overview was explained and each week i went through the criteria. intially i was afraid to even touch a clients face but didnt take long to overcome this. Each week i practiced and went through various looks and techniques. I absolutley luved my course and it has given me a brillant knowledge and skill which i hope to progress on through practice and time.

It has been , and is, great working with Lee Lyle-Toal , from knowing you and your company, Make-Up Academy NI for two years now. You and your company have helped my staff and members of Star Theatre Company/Media group so much ,and we were really pleased when our Lee and Andrew , John and others benefited from your make-up and styling expertise in training. You and your staff show great patience with disabled people and so we, who look after disabled actors and artists, would especially highly recommend your company to folk in the industry and indeed the public in general. We were especially glad when we all benefited in our film making from the interview with yourself and getting a look around your fabulous premises in Belfast.
Best wishes as always,
