More than 5 stars is needed! I cannot recommend this course enough! Before training i researched lots of different academies thoroughly. After reading the prospectus, reviews and actually having my makeup done by a past student i decided that KLMA Makeup Academy was going to be the best option for me. I started the course with zero experience and quite frankly zero confidence too, and now i honestly can't believe how far i've come. Each week the girls would go out of their way to make sure we were all getting the help and support we need. I normally find it so hard to concentrate and take things in, but Kiera's style of teaching allowed me to master techniques and conquer my challenges. The course exceeded my expectations, believe me when i say you never know how much there is to learn about makeup until you enrol! Thankyou Kiera and all the KLMA Team, the academy has given me confidence in myself and a new exciting career to pursue! xxx

Kiera did my prom makeup YEARS ago and I have been obsessed ever since! In fact she inspired me so much I finally decided to enroll on the 12 week makeup masterclass and I have not looked back! I went from barely even knowing how to hold a foundation brush to owning a full professional makeup artist kit that KLMA give you and knowing exactly how to use it all ☺ I have learnt things I thought I would never understand, imporived my confidence and feel so inspired! Thankyou to all the Kiera and all the KLMA team, ill miss you all so much

If you are thinking of going somewhere else, don’t even bother! KLMA is the best makeup school out there! I honestly cant recommend them enough. I have done two courses now and will be shortly booking a third to expand my skills even more. The team are amazing and nothing is ever too much trouble. I have been given work experience opportunities with the event team and even got picked to shadow Kiera on a photoshoot with JD sports. This place has been life changing for me – honestly get booking and it will change your life too!

I am forever on youtube so thought I knew quite a lot about makeup artistry, I initially signed up to KLMA purely for the certificate and qualification. Coming into the classroom however was a completely different ball game. I learnt far more than I had ever expected in such a short space of time. The course covered everything. From understanding what the best products are for each skin type, how to correct skin discoloration and really getting to grips with the use of different brushes and tools and mastering lots of tricky techniques. These are what they don’t teach you on the web! The support you receive during and after your training is invaluable, and better than you could ever get online - especially the free masterclasses! I have made life long friends and cannot thank KLMA enough! Would Highly Recommend

Absolutley loved training here! The academy is immaculate and staff are always on hand for anything you need. Its worth every penny and honestly all I talk about! I always had a passion for makeup but never really knew where I wanted to go with it. The girls helped encourage me and see my options for the future, giving me advice and helping me to form an action plan. Not only does KLMA offer the best service and training but I left feeling great within my own skin and empowered to follow my dreams.

Educate Empower Inspire, KLMA does all 3 and more! I was recommended KLMA by a friend of mine who had previously trained here a few years back. Her success and progress inspired me to pursue a new venture alongside my existing hairdressing career. Boy I was not disappointed! From the get go, the academy exuded professionalism. The tutors are incredibly talented, breaking everything down step by step, and I was amazed each week at the looks they created. The theory (which I was dreading) was actually taught in a way that I really enjoyed and I now understand things at a core level which helps my artistry to translate on to any client I have. Kiera teaches you to be a versatile artist and how to face challenges head on. I have now been able to double my income by having an extra skillset that is so in demand –and have just secured my first bridal makeup booking! Thankyou for everything! x This course is well worth taking!

Im am posting this on my sisters behalf. In the past I have spent thousands on college courses and makeup training but never achieved the results I wanted. I decided to enroll at KLMA after taking a break from having my second daughter. I was a little bit nervous as I expected to be the oldest on the course, but I was pleasantly surprised to join a group of complete different ages and backgrounds. KLMA helped to reinstall my confidence and build a good portfolio. We were provided with agency models to work on and had the experience of shooting with an expert photographer. The support from the tutors was fantastic and I have improved my technique dramatically. My product knowledge is much more extensive and I can honestly say I learnt more in this 8 weeks training than I did in almost 6 years of other education!! Highly recommend! I wish I had done this 10 years ago.

I had been wanting to do a makeup course for quite a while but had never been able to commit due to work obligations. Having seen Kiera on the BBC and followed the academy for a while I decided it was time to take the plunge. The Flexible artistry course allowed me the freedom to juggle my work schedule and being a full time mum with the desire to learn the skill of makeup art. The sessions were all tailored to exactly what I wanted to learn. The girls included more than 6 techniques per look, happily imparting their wisdom, best practice and product recommends, never tiring of the questions I had asked and always giving me confidence to step outside my comfort zone. I couldn’t have picked a better academy to train with – Thankyou KLMA!

I first completed my training with KLMA in 2014 and have now been back with my staff every year since. As a business owner it’s important to ensure your staff have up to date training, and techniques are current/competitive in the industry. Kiera never fails to impress. Each training session has always been catered to our needs as a team and she has always ensured an extra tutor in with us to help ensure we get the best value and experience whilst at the academy. Each session always covers new techniques, current trends and plenty of product knowledge. Its worth the 3 hour drive every time and I will continue to come back for more!

I had done lots of research before I applied the academy and always seek to train at schools where I will learn greatest advantage. KLMA is the best decision I have ever made. I travelled from Bermuda to attend full time makeup course. From my first email the staff made planning my trip easy. Recommending places to stay nearby and communicating well throughout. I had high expectations before the course started and it turned out to be eve better! Amazing tutors who are real working makeup artists. I have imporved so much and cant wait to take these skills back home with me.

I have just finished my training with KLMA and had such an incredible experience. This course is more than you can imagine! We explored everything from brushes, hygiene, skin types, tones, face shapes, to tricky liner and super glam looks. Although some weeks were challenging, I have loved EVERY minute and am now able to master looks I would have avoided in the past. Before starting the course I thought I knew about makeup, but actually I knew very little. Looking back on my work before the course its actually amazing to see how far I’ve come. Thankyou KLMA – I will definitely be back!

KLMA gave me an opportunity to completely change my career. Kiera is a fantastic trainer and explained everything thoroughly. So much practical learning which was invaluable. She is passionate about her training and knowledgeable in every way, no questions are left unanswered. We had two tutors with a small group size which made training really intimate and informative. The continued support, post training has kept confidence and motivation high. You can speak to Kiera, Emily, Marsha and any of the other members who have trained through the academy, for advice 24/7. Its like a little makeup family 🙂 Would highly recommend the course.

I completeted a 2 day work shop and honestly loved every minute. It is a 4.5hr drive to get to Manchester from where I live but it was honestly worth every mile, I am already thinking about when I can fit another one in in the new year! I've attended many make up master classes but this by KLMA far knocks spots off them all! Thanks so much for a fab 2days ladies � hope to see u again soon.

Finished my three day 1-2-1 make up course last week! Had the best few days, learning 6 different looks all of them very different and completely new techniques each time. I had trained in makeup at a salon near me who offered courses and the difference in training at an actual academy is really noticeable! It is really worth doing your research and investing in a credible course. Since training with KLMA my skills are better and I get more bookings and customer satisfaction than I did previously. I feel much more confident and professional, I can't recommend them enough! Girls if your looking to do make up artistry the RIGHT way, KLMA is the place to go! X x

I work in the corporate world and am forever having to give presentations and be the focal point of meetings at work. For years although I have been confident at work I perhaps haven’t been so confident in my appearance. After being recommended by a friend I decided to attend the introductory masterclass. The experience was FANTASTIC! Kiera was totally honest and advised me of what I should and should not be wearing to really enhance my features, she gave tons of advice and carefully guided me in perfecting makeup looks that I would then be able to continue to wear. I came away feeling so empowered and confident in myself (which I may add is a feeling I hadn’t felt in a very long time) Thankyou Kiera for a wonderful experience, I would most definitely recommend!

have had makeup done with Kiera and I can't recommend her enough! She's so skilled at what she does! I was unhappy in my job for quite a while and After a few months of pondering I finally decided to take the plunge and do a course at KLMA. I LOVED IT! I couldn't be happier with my new found skills and they way she encourages you to be the best you can be is so inspiring!! Kiera has put me in touch with a local salon owner who I am due to start working with and is forever giving me advice and encouragement when I ask. The girls truly believe in you and want to help you succeed! As silly as it sounds I now feel like I’m on the right track in life and am excited for what the future holds! If you're thinking about doing a makeup course stop putting it off &100% book in with KLMA!

I can’t recommend the academy highly enough!! I have just completed the Makeup Masterclass, and I am a completely different person to what I was at the beginning. Not only have I learnt a huge amount but my confidence in everything has grown massively in just 12 weeks. This is due to the incredible support from the talented tutors teaching at the academy. Not only do you get taught a vast amount about the industry, you get support for life. One of the amazing things about this course is the aftercare, which I think is so important, the tutors are there for you whenever you need a little advice or just a chat. Everyone at the academy is so lovely and warm, it’s like a big family and we have a whatsapp group to keep in contact and share discounst and job opportunitiues. I have met friends for life. KLMA was the best decision I ever made.
