Why Delamar

Why train at Delamar Academy? 


Industry reputation


Delamar Academy makeup courses are industry renowned as the highest standard of make-up and hair training. These courses cover everything including beauty, advanced fashion, prosthetics, special effects, wigs, period hair and make-up, special effects and many more niche areas of training. Students travel from all over the world to take our courses. Like the Oxford or Cambridge of make-up training, we are one of the oldest and longest-standing establishments. Delamar Academy has produced graduates whose careers have won Oscars, BAFTAs, Emmy’s, Indian and Italian Academy Awards, plus Vogue make-up artist of the year.  In fact, we are the only make-up school in the world with graduates who have won awards in such a breadth of industry genres. Our graduates are regularly nominated for BAFTAs and Emmys – almost every year without fail! 

From film to fashion, each tutor is hand-selected for their experience and impressive list of credentials. A great mix of personalities and teaching styles are present in the Delamar classrooms.


Delamar Academy Makeup Courses


By limiting the sizes of our classes, our students are given everything in our arsenal to develop their skill set and industry knowledge. For many of our classes, where students are doing make-up or hair on each other, only 7 students are working at a time. This ensures great tutor to student ratio for feedback and guidance. The classes here are completely hands-on, unlike some schools, we don’t set essays or expect the students to write essays because the profession of make-up and hair is an entirely practical one. Every student experiences their own professional journey and personal development here. Our tutors all share the same passion for passing on knowledge and building up our students’ confidence levels. It is a very warm and friendly environment where we are routing for each student to do their best. Students are not under any pressure to be perfect though, the learning environment is where mistakes should be made and overcome. 


The Delamar Academy learning experience is not only contained to our classes, we have provided a lot of online learning through 2020 and 2021, which has helped us reach thousands of people all over the world. Keep an eye on our newsletters (subscribe here) and social media to see when our next online course or masterclass is. 


Aftercare and career opportunities 


This is what really sets Delamar apart. We do not merely take course fees and teach; we persistently nurture careers for years after graduation and provide a caring hub of support. Training on Delamar Academy makeup courses entitles each graduate the services of our agency, providing top industry opportunities each week. For many years after graduating, Delamar Academy maintains an open door policy, perfect for a cup of tea and catch-up.

Every year we send a high number of graduates to work on huge feature film sets, music videos, commercial shoots, TV dramas, theatre productions and fashion shows. Our tutors provide many of these opportunities, by taking students onto their working teams. Technical ability does not go very far without a great can-do attitude. This is drilled into our students. We are proud to provide a very holistic approach to our courses, going above and beyond with our mentoring on everything from set etiquette to time keeping. Due to our long industry experience and diverse areas of specialism, the Advanced Complete Make-up Artist course and Cert HE Professional Make-up Design course fully equip students with many industry subjects from avant-garde hair to wincingly-gory casualty.
