Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need some experience before starting the course?

No, you don’t need to have had any experience, sometimes being a complete beginner is a positive thing as it allows us to turn you into the best makeup artist you can be.

Am I eligible to do a course with The Surrey School of Makeup?

As long as you are 18 or over and have a passion for makeup then yes you can do any of our courses.

What makeup do we use?

We prefer you to use our makeup whilst training at The Surrey School of Makeup. This is so you as an artist can work out what you like using and you don’t waste your money on products you haven’t tried and tested. Brands in our kit include : MAC, Bobbi Brown, Nars, Shu Uemura, Makeup Forever, Ben Nye, Screenface, Inglot, Laura Mercier, to name a few.

Do I get a certificate?

All of our courses are recognised qualifications which will enable you to take out insurance and get discount cards and get any makeup job you desire. You will receive your Certificate once all course work has been completed and signed off.

How do I know I will get work after the course?

We will provide you with as much knowledge of how to get work after the course as we can. It is down to you to build a reputation for yourself in the makeup industry. We will provide you with the information and tools to do this. We will also keep an eye out for students who are excelling on the course as we have a busy event calendar so always need assistants and artists to help out, we will keep your details on file for any future work such as London Fashion Week, weddings, fashion shows, photo-shoots etc.

What are the benefits of having a mobile school and training students at their home?

  • Fits in around your everyday life
  • Allows you to choose what period of time you complete the course in
  • Saves you having to travel around or commute to a makeup school
  • Works out more affordable for our students as we have low overhead costs
