Welcome to our Beauty & Makeup Department
Make up and beauty is billion-euro industry that is wet to grow and grow. There are plenty of opportunities to be successful in this exciting world of Make up and beauty. One thing that is certain that a recognised qualification is an absolute must. Skills, Product knowledge, creativity and excellence in client care are vital. Luckily for you these are the areas we excel in here at Portobello and we are only dying to teach and help you learn to become great.
As well as fun practical and challenging classes we have photo shoots, industry expert guest presenters, out and about trips to relevant shows, collaborations with the Fashion dept and much more.
Many of students go on to work for global companies such as Mac, Inglot, Benefit, Bobbi Brown, or set up their own businesses as entrepreneurs (MUA) especially in the growing wedding sector where good make- up artists are in high demand.
High Standards, attention to detail, a commitment to be the best you can be, and a sense of humour are the qualities we are looking for in our make up and beauty students. Is that you?
