Welcome to our brand-new Level 3 VTCT Qualification. Here at P.Louise we don’t do anything by halves, we are constantly striving to give our students the best in makeup training and product knowledge, by no means is this course any different. Here at P.Louise we want to go above and beyond for all of our students, and we aim to equip you with all of the skills you need to leave the Academy at the end of your course and pursue a successful makeup career.

This qualification will run one day a week for 20 weeks, 23 week dependant on bank holidays. (So please make sure you’re available for the maximum amount of time) This is an intense, fast track diploma course that requires your dedication, commitment and motivation. We recommend booking onto this diverse make-up course with the intention of attending each week, having enough time at home to practice and catch up. We would only recommend booking onto this course if you have no holidays booked, work commitments or a hectic home life, believe me we are not trying to scare you nor put you off booking, however, it is a reality that this course requires the utmost dedication.

We have a flexible approach to accommodating our students to ensure we exceed your expectations at every opportunity. You can choose a preference of which day is best suited for you, Monday- Friday, however 20 weeks for us just wasn’t enough… Unlike your usual colleges we have the freedom of being privately run so although we have to meet all the very specific criteria of our awarding body VTCT we also want to bring this training experience into the 21st century for you guys, this means every tiny little aspect of the course will have a P.Louise twist. Not only that, we have also decided to build in P.Louise dedicated days, where you will learn nothing but P.Louise looks. We want to push your makeup artistry to the next level.

One thing our P.Louise senior artists would like to make you aware of is that we must follow strict guidelines in accordance to the VTCT examination criteria. We have added P.Louise looks within this course, however, majority of the course will be focusing around being an all rounded MUA. Instagram makeup that we pride ourselves on, after all we built our whole career based on social media appeal, is only one area of the makeup field. It is so important to us as mentors that you leave our academy being able to achieve Instagram makeup, fashion and editorial makeup and feel confident in all areas of the trade. We want our students to be able to succeed, strive and excel in all aspects of makeup artistry and feel confident no matter what client sits within your chair.

Do I need to bring my own brushes?

Yes. Having the correct tools is crucial when starting out in makeup, after all, how are you supposed to practice and begin accepting clients without the essentials. You can find on our website a brush recommendation focusing on both high end and affordable brushes.

Do I need to bring my own model?

Yes. Here at P.Louise we are unable to allocate models, although we are extremely supportive of you guys and ensuring your course runs smooth, it’s crucial you take responsibility of sourcing models accordingly to the schedule. If you are struggling for models please use our online social media platforms such as P.Louise Takeover to advertise for a model. The reason we don’t commit to sourcing models is due to the responsibility then being down to P.Louise if your model was to not show up.
