"I have done a few courses with KLMA now, all of them being so professional from the moment I had email confirmation. The teaching staff are amazing, nothing is ever too much for any of them and I couldn’t have asked for better training. After leaving the course I was well equipped to leave and continue my development and set up as a freelance artist. I have since been back and trained in specialist areas to further enhance my skills. I would recommend anyone thinking of doing this course & wouldn’t want to train anywhere else now!.”

"Training with KLMA changed my life. My whole damn life. I simply wouldn't be where I am in my career if it was not for them."
"A year on now since my training and i now have a successful business on my own doing what i love which I don't think i would have been able to do if i had attended another course! Definitely worth every penny xxx"
So let's get you started!
"I went from barely paying my bills to quitting my job and finally having a career i love."
Being a single mum of two, i was somebody who worked to live, constantly juggling the kids and other responsibilities. Deciding to do the course felt overwhelming at first, but the girls were so lovely and supportive i knew instantly i'd picked the right place to train. Being a professional makeup artist and hairstylist has given me the freedom to work the hours i want, and not only that, i now live to work! I feel totally passionate about what i do, which is a feeling i never thought possible."
Yes, It Really Works
"If you're on the fence, let me just say... stop thinking about booking a makeup course and do it with KLMA!"
It's the best thing i've ever done! Kiera & Tal are the ultimate professionals. They are masters of makeup, incredibly supportive and perfectionists. The skills i learnt on this course i would never have learnt from any youtube or instagram videos. I spent 12 weeks at KLMA and met some wonderful likeminded people who were equally as passionate about a career in makeup as me & i am incredible sad to say goodbye. I can't believe where i started and where i am now thanks to Kiera & KLMA - Thankyou ladies your knowledge & support has been instrumental to me setting up and succeeding in my own freelance makeup artist career".
"It's worth every penny and honestly all i talk about!"
Absolutely loved training here! The academy is immaculate and staff are always on hand for anything you need. 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 own dreams!"

"This is your day. This is the time to go after it all.
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.”
"I went from barely even knowing how to hold a foundation brush to owning my own professional kit that KLMA give you and knowing exactly how to use it all. I've learnt things i thought i would never understand, improved my confidence & feel so inspired"
"The support you receive during and after your training is invaluable, and better than you could ever get online. I mastered so many tricky techniques that they don't teach you on the web and can't thank KLMA enough!"
Meet Your Lead Educator...
If your new around here, hi,
I’m Kiera-louise, Founder & CEO of KLMA Academy.
I’m a Professional Makeup Artist, Educator & Serial Entrepreneur. I am Unapologetically ambitious and aim to pave the way for myself and other women to rise.
I've been where you are now...
You see, just like you, I was once a beginner on this journey and despite what you may see now, things didn’t come super easily to me.
It has taken us over 10 years of fine tuning, trials, knowledge, and a ton of hard work to create leading educational programmes that really do work.
We want to help walk you step by step through the skills you need to become a successful makeup artist and help take the guesswork out of how to move forward with your dream career.
If truth be told, the programmes created are the exact courses I could have really done with back when I began.
They have been designed with your success in mind, saving you a ton of wasted time and money whilst showing you how to do things the right way, first time round! (win-win)
but it wasn't always this way.
The Makeup masterclass will work for you whether you've never picked up a makeup brush in your life or if your a seasoned beauty fanatic looking for a qualification.
Our syllabus is designed to help you crush your artistry goals. We don’t believe in fluff, or making things any more complicated than is necessary or doing things that don’t generate a great return on time, energy or monetary investment. and we've made the framework so easy to follow that it guarantee's you will leave the classroom knowing 100% more than you ever did when you first walked in!
We could reach out and hand you an entire done-for-you file of how to become a Pro MUA or start and scale your business right now… but if you don’t truly believe it’s possible for you, then you won’t invest your time and energy into making it happen.
Half of the work to be done here is having faith in yourself to show up and do the work, put your skills into practice and commit to making progress each and every day. Nothing stands between you and those massive goals you’re visualising. You’ll be amazed by what you can achieve when you're given the right information and start indexing on your strengths.
You’re more than capable, you’re oh so ready and now it’s time to step aaall the way up!
This program includes everything you need to turn your passion into a profession.
But here's the thing...
We don’t take your investment of time, energy (and money!) into our courses lightly, there are limited spaces on our programmes and we want to make sure they’re going to the right people.
Graduate success is our reward and we only want to work with people who are going to be committed to getting results.

Frequently Asked Questions
Our Kits are regularly updated as trends, products and technologies are always changing. The items in each kit vary slightly depending on which course you choose but are made up of carefully selected hero products from leading industry brands. At KLMA we like to ensure the products you are working with are current and what we best feel you will benefit most from during your training.
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.
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.
Yes, and no! It depends on how you look at it. All careers have some level of competition, which is healthy as it makes you strive to succeed. Many successful make-up artists work with others in a network. Helping each other by passing on jobs you can not do, sharing jobs and generally supporting each other.
At KLMA class sizes are kept small to maximize learning and build teacher-student bonds. This allows us to offer a much higher level of personal attention from artist to student. Our tutors pride themselves on being approachable and understanding, always there to help and support our students along the way.
KLMA’s professional courses are designed to set you up for success. They include a combination of both theory and practical based learning – enabling your skills to be transferable onto ANY client.
It is important when training to become a successful makeup artist that you understand the fundamentals of makeup in just as much importance as executing the skill set and get hands-on tutor support and feedback whilst doing so.
Students must be aged 16 or above to enrol on one of KLMA’s Pro certified courses. However, applicants under 16 years old can complete one of our introductory or 121 sessions providing parental consent is given.

MUA’s have the opportunity to hold multiple job posts at the same time if they wish and increase income furthermore.Yes, we have students travelling from overseas on a regular basis, Ireland, Iran, Dubai, some as far as Bermuda!
