Where do i start? This course has completely changed my life and i can’t thank KLMA enough. I’ve gone from struggling and hating my job in retail to being able to pick and choose my own hours, have more time with my little boy and actually earn more than what i did working just two full days a week.I cannot thank Kiera and the girls enough for how well they trained us. I was so nervous before attending due to me not being from a beauty background (just a makeup fanatic) she completely put me at ease from my initial conversation enquiring about the course. Although fun, the course was very educational and a lot of learning and practice is done. Kiera is honest, direct and extremely passionate about what she does and the way she trains and the support doesn’t stop at the end of the course. I cannot praise enough – Highly recommend

The simple answer is yes! The makeup industry is one of the most lucrative businesses in the world but like anything it won’t come to your door.
The industry is ever growing and changeable meaning that as long as you put the work in there will always be opportunities for work.
Work opportunities as a professional makeup artist are endless. In the UK alone the beauty industry contributes in excess of 30 billion to the economy and is growing every day. Working freelance in the beauty sector, being salon based, retail cosmetics, fashion, bridal or media/entertainment industries are some of the most popular choices. Other pathways include theatrical productions, remedial camouflage and celebrity makeup artists.
Wages vary according to responsibility, experience and sector.
Newly-qualified MUA’s in fashion and editorial will earn about £100 a day for assisting on a shoot, but may have to work for nothing when starting out. A senior make-up artist on an advertising shoot can earn £500 plus per day.
Top make-up artists can earn about £3,000 a day designing make-up for fashion shows. Agencies arrange such jobs but charge the artist up to 20% commission. Film work can pay from £500 to £800 a week. Theatrical work, which can range from face make-up to wig care, pays about the same depending on the job. Makeup artists focusing on clients can charge from £25 -60 per hour and bridal parties an extra surcharge. On average doing clients many makeup artists earn £300+ working a saturday alone.
MUA’s have the opportunity to hold multiple job posts at the same time if they wish and increase income furthermore.
