Here is what some of the students said about the course:

I recently attended one of Sally’s bridal make up courses, Sally was fantastic, so friendly and supportive, and of course full of knowledge! I loved learning the different techniques and building my confidence in this field, Sally is a very talented lady! Thank you for sharing your skills with us all!

I did Sally’s course in bridal make up, it was amazing, she’s a brilliant makeup artist and a fantastic teacher. Learned a lot from her and she’s a total inspiration. Thank you xxx

Sally taught me on a photographic make up course, I learned everything I needed to know about applying makeup, blending and creating different looks as well as contouring. We had lots of practice time on a model and I highly recommend Sally to people looking to learn makeup skills.
