The amount I learnt in the course was unbelievable.

All the teachers were so passionate about their work and seeing them do what they love in the demonstrations every morning was such a great experience. They had so much to offer to us – They really wanted to help.

Going to CB*MA has been the best decision I’ve ever made.

To be a makeup artist on a movie set was always my dream.

I learned more skills in 5 months than I ever imagine, my personality grew immensely, I learned that it’s not just about makeup it is so much more.

I worked… on set of Disney’s Cinderella, where I started as a trainee and finished as a junior makeup artist second unit.

Petar and the girls at CBMA were also extremely supportive in those early days.

I was given the chance to tour Europe with Bill Kenwright Ltd’s Evita. I have had the privilege of working for the English National Opera and at The National Theatre, and just recently on Mama Mia.

If you think optimistically about your future and you work hard at finding work then you will make progress!
