What sets us apart from other asian bridal training academies:
We cover more looks than any other asian bridal training academy – We teach you how to be versatile by teaching you core techniques.
To maximise learning time students practice on live models as opposed to practicing on each other as with certain academies, which in effect reduces learning time by half.
Our students practice applying makeup on the whole face and not just half of it as taught by some academies, as invariably clients do not have symmetrical faces and as a professional your job is to balance the makeup on both sides of the face to look even and flawless.
During our courses we focus only on perfecting your makeup skills rather than preparing posts for our social media in your learning time as seems to be the norm with most academies.
Our students portfolio work is strictly our students work only, see information regarding Day 5 below for explanation as to why this is important.
Versatility is our strength – Our makeup videos and portfolio demonstrate a larger variety of looks than any other asian bridal training academy. We teach completely different makeup looks as opposed to the same look with different colours.
Basic and advanced techniques for contouring and highlighting as well as corrective contouring techniques taught for different facial features.
You will learn about makeup suitable for different skin tones and skin types i.e. different types of foundation.
We provide full details of all products and tools both high end and cheaper alternatives to suit your budget.
We teach you how to identify different features such as eye shapes, face shapes, skin types, skin tones, etc so that you are able to apply the appropriate makeup to enhance their natural beauty. During trials clients will focus on your makeup skills before deciding to book you and will not be wearing their wedding outfit and jewellery (which can divert attention from the actual quality of makeup skills taught, i.e. blending).

Optional Day 5 for Photoshoot
You will receive professionally edited images for your portfolio to kick start your new career. The model, photographer, jewellery and outfit are all provided. The tutor is present to provide guidance with the hairstyle and makeup thus reinforcing all that has been learnt on the course.
The Photoshoot is Evidence of the Students Achievement
Our students portfolio work is strictly our students work only i.e. the student has done all the makeup, all the hairstyle, and all the jewellery and outfit setting by themselves at the end of the course without any physical help from the tutor or anyone from her team. Many other teaching establishments pass off pictures as students work whereas the tutor or helper usually do all the hairstyling, and dupatta and jewellery setting themselves, and the student only does the makeup, and in some instances makeup by the student is done on only half the face, whereas the tutor has done makeup on the other half.
