On top of this already incredible success story, another student has been offered a place on Creative Skillset’s HETV Trainee Finder scheme, which helps place new talent on UK dramas such as Game of Thrones, Black Mirror, Sherlock Homes etc.

Alongside this, Veronica provides exclusive, free mentoring, after care, references and referrals – all of which has resulted in stunning rates of student success.
“I am incredibly proud of my students and the huge amount of success that the MAKUP Academy has helped them to achieve in just one year.
I feel strongly that you don’t need a degree to become a successful make-up artist. After many years of working in the industry, I know that it is a vocational job. What you do need is an excellent course.
So why not give yourself the best possible start to this wonderfully exciting creative career, and train with the best Academy and teachers possible.”
