    CJ Makeup Training Academy is wonderful!

    I have just completed the Pro Freelance Makeup Course and can’t find the words to describe how excellent it is. Colette approaches training with limitless energy, enthusiasm, a fabulous range of skills, strong passion and an incredible pool of knowledge.
    I received constant encouragement, support, advice and guidance throughout, helping me to challenge myself and achieve the very best results.

    The course materials are packed with detailed information relevant to current trends, theory of makeup application, and professional methods and considerations as a makeup artist.

    The amazing training area, photography studio and professional photo shoots made the modules extremely special and enjoyable, and although I have not yet seen the final images, I am sure that they will be a fantastic starting point for my portfolio, and will make perfect thank you gifts for my models.

    I cannot praise CJ Makeup Training Academy highly enough.
    The Pro Freelance Makeup course has provided the perfect foundation to build my confidence and career as a makeup artist!

    Thank you Colette!

    I have just finished the Pro freelance makeup artistry course and I can honestly say I am gutted that the experience has come to an end 🙁 I had so much fun on this course! Collete is absolutely amazing! So full of knowledge and passion for what she does which flows so naturally out of her as she supports, teaches and guides her students through the course. I would highly recommend training with CJ beauty and I will most definitely be back for some bridal hair styling. The aftercare package leaves me feeling full of confidence and is a fantastic idea. I also can’t thank the photographer enough for sharing some knowledge on how to help your models not just with their makeup but so much more. I am so excited to see the final prints next week!
