This course is great for someone like me, who has a passion for makeup and has spent countless hours watching glamorous makeup tutorials on YouTube.

It taught me so much more about the makeup industry than is often shown on Instagram and YouTube, and I learnt techniques that gave me the confidence to begin working in any avenue of makeup artistry (even including special effects!).

The coursework load was very manageable, and the modules were all very thorough and informative. I'd definitely recommend IMUA for any makeup enthusiasts!

So happy to have made the decision to enrol in this course. I love makeup and I never thought that the application process I used to do mainly for myself, was way too outdated until I got onboard with IMUA.

This course has completely transformed my skills, the way I never imagined. I even surprised myself sometimes with the results of my work, I couldn't believe it!

I am so thankful for the IMUA, you guys just boosted my confidence, big time! I am so ready to embark in my new beautiful journey!

When I started out with this course I didn’t think I would be able to finish. But with every module, my love for everything makeup grew!

The course material had links to some amazing videos that helped grow my skills and techniques. Now that I have finished the certificate I am going back through to do the diploma and further my skills, techniques and passion for this industry. My tutor was fantastic giving me honest feedback and helping me in the areas a wasn’t too confident in. I made some life long friends in the Facebook group that is continuing to support me.

I highly recommend this course.

I’m sad that my journey is over with The Institute of Makeup Artistry, however, I’m eager to sign up to advanced modules when they become available.

I’ve taken many great tips on board from both the written modules and also from my tutor Eryn. I feel as though I have been supported and recognised as an artist throughout this journey in both the student Facebook group and on the Instagram platform.

Can not recommend this course enough! Thank you x

Working through the institute of makeup artistry was an amazing experience that I will never forget.

I had the opportunity to work with an amazing teacher with ongoing help ad support. The modules were amazing to learn new skills such as SFX, working with wigs and facial hair. I would highly recommend anyone to do this course if you have a passion for makeup like myself.

This course has really opened up my eyes to new creativity and opportunities.

Studying through The Institute of Makeup Artistry has been such a wonderful experience.

I had a lot of fears taking the chance to change my career as a woman approaching middle age, but the professionalism, kindness and knowledge of this school got me through so easily. Each assignment filled me with excitement and made me look forward to the next one. And the feedback from my tutor was priceless! She was very nice and helpful, and I felt so supported.

Thank you IMUA. I feel confident to truly start my career as a makeup artist, and I fully intend to recommend this school to others and take another one of their courses.

This course has not only fulfilled me into becoming a qualified makeup artist, but it has fulfilled me into pushing myself into new sectors of my life.

I found this course educating, fun and most of all it assisted perfecting my current skills. All thought there’s no such thing as perfect, I have so much more knowledge and skills within the makeup industry.

I was excited to complete each assignment which is why I got through the course so quickly. I started in February and completed it by June, anything is possible if you put your mind to it. My tutor was very inspiring, kind and provided criticism when needed. She has really inspired me to keep pushing to the end through all aspects of my life.

Without this course, I never would’ve started my beauty page on Facebook and Instagram and I never would’ve felt as comfortable as I do now creating youtube videos. Makeup is my element and something that makes me feel happy, safe and content. And I'm very grateful for this course for allowing me to be this person I am today.

If anyone is considering taking on this course I HIGHLY recommend it, there’s no such thing as wasted education. Especially in a field like this one!

Secret Harbour, WA

I have always enjoyed being able to express myself creatively and have always had a passion for the arts, from painting to theatre; it’s always been part of my life. I love makeup and how it enables us to feel confident, creative and beautiful.

When I started this course, I had a self-taught understanding of makeup which I couldn’t wait to learn more about. The course allowed me to take my knowledge to the next level, and I have seen my skills improve so much in the last year. I have gained experience and clients and can’t believe how much more confident I feel as a makeup artist.

My tutor was so wonderful, helpful and gave suck positive and constructive feedback. I felt cared for, and it really pushed me to work harder.

This is a wonderful course for beginners or anyone who wants to expand on their skills. There’s such a variety in the course, and every assignment was perfectly constructed for the module.

I loved being an IMUA student.

This is the only course you need!If you are a complete beginner or if you already have experience, this is the course to get you qualified. This isn't just your stock standard makeup, this covers theatre, television, SFX and legal requirements of an MUA working in the industry!

All the better is you can do this at home....in your pajamas if you wish (like me haha).

So happy I did this course and I couldn't recommend​ it more! YAY for being qualified!!!

An amazing course constructed by professionals. Proud to say I am a qualified student of IMUA.

This course has taught me so much. I have gained the confidence to broaden my colour palette. The material is constructed extremely well and the videos educational. Support was just a message away and always had the answer to push me along and complete my modules. My Tutor was amazing and encouraging the entire way, very grateful. Even though I still can not take amazing pictures, the techniques taught do help make the picture look fabulous.

I will be forever thankful for the opportunity and support on this journey. I can't wait to unleash my skills as a graduate!
