"I’m often asked for advice by people wanting to get started in the world of make-up. There’s no magic formula, it’s about working hard and getting yourself noticed.

To begin with, though, you’ll need a fantastic grounding. When I knew that I wanted to become a MUA, I attended the incredible Glauca Rossi School of Makeup in London where I learnt the basis of the skills and tricks that I still use today".

Makeup artists such as Charlotte Tilbury, Hannah Murray, Virginia Young, Emma Lovell, Ken Nakano (Japan), Lauren Parsons,Florrie White & Elisabeth Hsieh are just a small number of the renowned makeup artists that trained here. (see gallery for more)

The School has earned a reputation for innovation, creativity and technical skill. It's a training designed to inspire discovery. It places a great emphasis on each student finding their own individual style.
It also brings with it the great heritage that emanates from the exceptional career of Glauca.

She was a favourite of photographers such as Lord Snowdon, Norman Parkinson and Bruce Weber. She worked with celebrities such as Naomi Campbell, Jerry Hall, Jane Seymour and Meg Ryan.

What Makes The Glauca Rossi School Of Makeup Different From Other Trainings?

If you're looking to become a professional MUA and progress into the makeup industry, you've probably looked at many of the trainings available. You certainly have options and cheaper alternatives. So what is unique about the Glauca Rossi School of Makeup that distinguishes it from other schools?

The Glauca Rossi School places an emphasis on building the individual's unique talents from the ground up. We empower our students to deploy their creative individuality. We also keep the focus relatively narrow on the core skills of fashion, period looks and glam. 

Then we give students lots of time and detailed instruction, so they can become truly expert in each field. In this way they become uniquely equipped to express themselves with an enviable class and uniqueness of style.

The issue with some other courses is that their focus is often too broad to be absorbed properly. The courses don't allow enough time for the skills to be mastered or taught in sufficient detail. In trying to cover everything, students often end up learning very little. Their left with a weak foundation to build their careers on and it often crumbles. 
Students who've come to us from such courses found their foundational skills are not broad enough or well enough developed to give them the necessary confidence to progress well in industry.

Also, If your happen to be wondering about the importance of MUA accreditation, here's the truth of it.

We offer a certificate of completion from the school but not traditional accreditation. We don't think that leaves you in a weaker position as we understand it. 

In reality, the thing that the industry looks at is your portfolio. Hardened professionals in the industry know quality when they see it delivered for real. They trust their eyes. That's how they decide who they want to work with: talent that has been proven to deliver the end result they need.

They are not persuaded by qualifications. A great portfolio is what will open doors for you in this industry and what we help you leave with.
