“I recently completed 2 days of work on a local promotional film, doing hair and makeup. Lizzie (another student) and I worked together to complete makeup on 4 actors and to maintain the continuity throughout filming. We had so much fun filming all around Birmingham and had the best weather we could’ve asked for!

Gaining experience doing male makeup as well as female makeup was particularly useful for us both. Being in a working environment always confirms how much we truly learn at MAKUP and how important everything we learn is. Without the training I received, I simply wouldn’t have been able to complete the work that was needed.

We worked long hours in a fast-paced environment, but being able to share it with such an amazing team meant we didn’t stop having fun! Both myself and fellow graduate Lizzie look forward to any potential collaborations with the team in future, and can’t thank them enough for being so kind and welcoming to us both.

I’m so grateful to Veronica not only for the training she provides, but the support she gives us all afterwards – helping us to get both work experience and paid work. For these reasons I believe the training Veronica offers sets her above the rest and creates a unique experience due to the support we all receive.”
