Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, Value I graduated from the Cert HE Professional Make-up Design recently and it was the best decision to attended this academy. I am from Germany and it was my dream to work as a Make-up artist since I was 14 years old. I wanted to get the best opportunity, so I went to see the academy and had a lovely chat with Leda. She answered all my question, I could get a look in some classes. I already felt welcomed. Since day 1, the school supports you. The tutors are all professionals, who working successfully in the industry, and they know what they are talking about. You get to learn everything from the best tutors. If you have any questions or worried about something, I could always go to Leda or Marcia or Kate, who helped you as much as they can. You will learn so much. In the course is included: Basic Beauty, Period Hair and Make-up, Fashion Make-up, Prosthetic, Casualty, Character Make-up, Barbering, Afro Hair and a lot more. In the one year course you have also an advance course included. Also, they will help you to find jobs afterwards, which is not take for granted. I only can recommend this academy to everyone who wants to become a Make-up artist.

I just recently graduated from the 1 year course at Delamar Academy and it was absolutely amazing ! I loved every part of it ! The ladies from the Delamar team are all incredible and have been so helpful and supportive all through the year. We have been taught by professional make-up artists who currently work in the industry and are absolutely passionate about what they do. In addition to giving us all the tools/skills to become a successful make-up artist Delamar also has a great aftercare program and the team already has started sending us great job opportunities. If you are thinking about learning make-up I can only recommend Delamar Academy !!! It's a great choice !

I have recently completed the 1 Year Cert HE Professional Make Up Design course and can't recommend Delamar Academy enough. I enrolled primarily to learn Wig Dressing, interested in their 6 week Advanced Hair Course. I decided to also learn about Make Up and chose the year course as it was more convenient to pause my business for a full year than take shorter courses intermittently. I have had an amazing time learning a variety of subjects with Hair, Wigs, Make Up, Characters, Special FX and Prosthetics. I now feel equipped to change industry's and work in TV and Film though I could now also work in Theatre. Delamar has been a consistently safe space for me this year despite Covid, and I have felt privileged to walk in each morning. The staff couldn't be more supportive. With their guidance and support I have already gained Dailies work as a Hair and Make Up Trainee on a TV show.

I recently graduated from Delamar Academy. I enrolled for the 16 weeks course and I had my best days at the academy. To study in Delamar academy was a dream for me and it took me a while to get there but I’m glad I finally made it. I cannot thank the staff and tutors at Delamar enough for giving me the best experience possible throughout my training. The tutors at Delamar Academy are amazing and so knowledgeable about their field of expertise. The standards of the teaching and the academy set up is amazing. I feel well equipped and confident in my skills to begin my career in the industry. I’m forever grateful to the entire Delamar team who are so kind and helpful both during my time studying and even after. Delamar has allowed me to pursue my dreams that seemed unachievable a few years ago and now I can’t wait to start my career in the industry. Thank you for making me part of the Delamar family and giving me friends for lifetime. I highly recommend Delamar Academy.

I graduated from the one year course in August 2020 so my year was massively affected by Covid. Although it wasn't an ideal scenario, Delamar supported us as students throughout and we always felt safe at the academy. I chose to do the Advanced Hair module and it was the best decision I could have made. It is definitely not the easy option, its an intense 6 weeks so be prepared to work really hard, but it is so rewarding when you see your progress! I was taught by the most amazing tutors who have helped me launch my career in the Film and TV industry and for that I couldn't be more grateful! x

If you enter the East London studio of speciality make-up artist Jennifer Drew its best to be prepared for the sight of a few ripped-off arms laying around or a devilishly grimacing Frankenstein. These are just a few of her specialities.
