PAST STUDENTS

“The Academy really sparked my passion for makeup as an art form. It helped me
step out of my comfort zone with
 makeup and taught me so many
fundamentals every makeup artist should know, from basic hygiene to working on a photoshoot.
 I loved it!

He has such an incredible way of teaching & really picks up on everything. He always pushed me to do better & got me to where I am with makeup today. Really helped kick start my career in makeup, and opened up a whole new world!"

I had been a huge fan of Paddy's when I worked alongside him at weddings, him on makeup & me on hair. It was my obvious choice to attend his Academy when I felt it was the right time to add makeup to my services. He is always there even almost 10 years later when I need his advice. I have never looked back and I can simply say it was the best decision I made for my business.
