Why do not we provide makeup kits for each student and instead uses several makeup brands in the class environment?

All the British international colleges offer all cosmetic products/equipment required for use inside the College.

This will reduce the course cost for the students who are considering joining us, as it will cost a lot more if it was compulsory to have the kit and the students will have the opportunity to try and compare between makeup brands which is essential for a make-up artist’s learning experience to build their knowledge around product textures, qualities and application types.

At London College of Make-up we only use the best of products and equipment in the industry to provide you with the finest learning experience and to make sure all the students in the class will experience the same quality of products.
