Visit CB*MA on our Makeup School Open Day Saturday 9th March 2019 – 11am until 4pm

CB*MA Makeup Tutors’ Demos @ CB*MA Open day

This time around @ our Open Day, our Tutors and graduates will be showing quick makeup techniques and asking you , our guests, to have a go at creating a bruisethe perfect lips, or possibly a beautiful 1960’s makeup! Our current students, toowill be showing what they have achieved to date.

We will all be on hand to talk about your potential future career as a makeup artist.

Chat to Christine Blundell @ the Open day

We are also hopeful that Christine will be with us at the Open day, so you can meet her in person and chat to her about anything you would like to know about her career, the school, finding work after graduation or anything else that interests you.

One-To-One Q&As!

Many of our Team CB*MA graduates, now stars of TV, Feature Film and Theatres and Opera houses, will be on hand for one-to-one direct questions, so start making a list! We will inform you shortly who they are.  It will be a great opportunity to ask them as many questions as you want!

They will be very happy to help and guide you, having been in your shoes themselves in the past. They can share with you what is important and what is not, some crucial job hunting hints and tips, tell you how they landed their first job after graduation and many other useful things.

You will also be able to talk to our current students and see them in action, working on different projects at their work stations. An opportunity to ask lots of questions, feel the school atmosphere and spend, we hope, an enjoyable afternoon in the heart of Camden.

Purpose of the Day

The purpose of the day is to get a clearer understanding of what you may be getting yourself into. What will you be studying? Where? How?

Our makeup school open day is a very relaxed one. The emphasis is you seeing the school on a “normal day”. For the students it is having an extra day to really hone in on their skills that may be lacking.

Projects are set up for the students to work on. This will be the first time that they will be viewed.Refreshments are at hand for the people looking round.

We all understand that it is a big task to choose the right place of learning. The students have made that decision and so are perfectly apt to answer any questions that you may have.

We always hope that Christine will be on hand, to discuss technical questions and also to share with us her latest film projects. That part is always popular and exciting!

There will be a tutor at hand to talk about teaching techniques and their life as a make up artist.

Importantly so, there will be our graduates milling around helping you with other questions as to what happens after the course.


If you are still undecided about joining our TV and Film Make-up Academy, we would really urge you to attend one of our popular Day Taster courses. When we throw open our doors to welcome prospective students and offer you a taste of what it is really like to be part of the CB*MA family.

Just grab a cuppa and a biscuit, and join us on a tour of our exciting studios. You will have plenty of time to meet the staff, make-up graduates and students, and bombard them with all those burning questions you have been dying to ask. By the end of the day we feel sure you will know this is the place to start your career in film and TV make-up.

Questions Answers

Searching the World Wide Web is all well and good; a bit of window-shopping, but as they say the proof is in the pudding. Needless to say you must go and see the said pudding! At the OPEN DAY there is Christine Blundell; the tutor; graduates and students. Many differing levels of expertise. All are important to ask questions to. All have different viewpoints. There are the obvious questions of what do you learn? Who teaches? By coming to the open day, you will see many of the answers.

Atmosphere is important; do the students look happy?

At CBMA, we guarantee the course will be an amazing experience! Yet what happens after? Many schools, say they offer aftercare. It was a term we coined! Yet what is this aftercare? How does it manifest itself? You can read our aftercare on another page.

Some schools mention location; being in a studio or close to the school is ‘key’. We disagree! We have students coming down from Scotland and Yorkshire; even Spain and Italy to do our courses. Needless to say, we help them out with finding accommodation. Distance is nothing compared to an excellent education!!

Cannot make the Open Day, why not book a Studio Tour or better still come in and be a model for half a day?
