Read what some of our former students have to say about make up lessons at The Session School, London…

I’m getting married in a couple of months, and following several bad experiences at friends weddings where I’ve been made up to look a bit orange, I knew I wanted to do my own make up for my big day! However as someone who doesn’t usually wear much make up at all, I didn’t really know where to start, until I read about The Session School in a wedding magazine. I decided to book a private appointment with Dani, and I’m so pleased that I did.

As a total novice when it comes to make up I was a bit nervous, but Dani totally put me at my ease. I was really impressed that she took the time to go through the make up I already had first, before moving on to some advice about skincare (which I am definitely following), and then to the bridal make up itself. It was also a huge benefit to speak to someone who isn’t tied to any partcular make up brand, and I really did feel like I was getting ideas of the very best products for me.

All in all I felt that the lesson was a great investment for me and my skin, and I would recommend the experience to anyone. Thank you Dani x

Training with The Session School in London was one of the best choices I made.  The school is a wonderful place to study, it’s professional, intense and fun.  Dani and the team are truly lovely people and have years of experience behind them to pass onto the students in their makeup lessons.  The aftercare has been amazing, always being in touch for work and events.  I have been given some great opportunities and I cannot thank them enough.  I would highly recommend this school to train with and if you are thinking about it, the open days are really beneficial and helped me make my mind up. Thank you Session School team xxx

The Session School designed the makeup for a recent L.K.Bennett fashion show at the Marylebone Hotel to showcase the Autumn / Winter 2013 collection.  We were delighted with their work and look forward to working with them again on future shows.

The advanced make up lessons gave me the extra knowledge and confidence to be more creative with fashion looks, and made me realise I really do want to follow my dream of becoming a full time freelance make up artist.  All the teachers are very friendly, helpful and will answer any questions during the course and after the course has finished. Plus the venue of the course is very spacious and has all the make up you can dream of. 

I have already been on a few jobs through The Session School and I cannot wait to work more with ex graduates and teachers on future jobs.

I really enjoyed my time at The Session School and attribute my success as a makeup artist over the past year to them.  Their after-care is absolutely amazing, and through them I have been able to head MUA teams for fashion shows and events.  Before attending The Session School, I had makeup lessons at another school, and although the teaching was fantastic, after I graduated I was left completely on my own with no aftercare or advice.  I was really wary about spending the money to do another course and have the same thing happen, but I am so glad I chose The Session School to continue my makeup education.  They are always there to offer advice and opportunities.  All the staff and teachers are so friendly and still remember me even though I was only at the school for a week and left a year ago!  I feel like part of The Session School family!  I would recommend The Session School to anyone looking to become a professional makeup artist.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at The Session School, not only did I come out with a qualification but also great friends. Everyone there is very easy to talk to and so helpful. What made me go for The Session School was the aftercare that they give and they really have lived up to their reputation. They’re always just at the end of an email or phone call and always willing to help as updates on available jobs which is a really great opportunity especially when you’re just starting out and not quite sure where to go next.

The 5 days I went to The Session School were very memorable and have definitely made me evolve as a makeup artist. The teachers are fantastic, the place is amazing and the kits given out are very generous. I highly recommend this course to anyone wanting their first makeup course and recommend you take it HERE!
