What People Say About us
Recommendations from graduates…
I studied the full time media course and cannot recommend it enough. I have learnt so much and had the most incredible time training here with Suzie and her team.
Suzie is just the best and really goes above and beyond to ensure you have all the training and knowledge to work in the industry.
You are fully supported during and even after your training has finished.
I wish I didn’t have to leave. I’ve worked on some big brand commercials as an assistant, some music videos, currently working on Hollyoaks as H&MUA and excited for my career ahead.
We’ve been working with AR Make Up School students and alumni on our productions for a number of years now. From day one, I’ve been impressed by both their technical skills and ability to develop creative ideas. Their H&MUAs also benefit from being taught by experienced industry professionals, which is apparent through the soft skills and etiquette that they display on set; even if they’re only there for the first time.

I studied at Aqua Rosa on the full time course some time ago now and couldn’t recommend it enough. Let me tell you I was so bad at makeup when I first started for sure the bottom of the class but the teachers encouraged me constantly and I was offered all the tools and knowledge I needed to push myself to get to where I am today. 8 years on and i have now been featured in many magazines such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Wonderland and l’officiel to name a few.
I have also had the pleasure of working with some amazing celebs including Geri Halliwell, Skepta, Myleene Klass and Emerald Fennell and also have many more exciting project in the pipeline. None of this would have been possible without the great start I had training with Aqua Rosa. Learning not just how to do makeup but also how to act on set and decipher a brief to bring to the client exactly what they expect which is just as valuable as the practical side if not more. Thank you Suzanne for your amazing help and for always believing in me and pushing me to be the best, the support did not stop when the course did and I am still regularly in contact with the school, the best start I could have wished for to my career as a makeup artist.
It has been a few years since I finished my training at A R. I chose them to do my media hair and make up training because of all the amazing reviews and that it has long been considered the top North West make up school. I really enjoyed my time there and didn’t want my course to come to an end! It was so much fun and it was great to get to train on site where productions were happening daily. It was a little taster for what my future would look like. All of the staff were so helpful during my training and afterwards. The support throughout my initial work experience to helping me prepare for interviews has been invaluable. They have helped me through the lows and highs of breaking into the media industry. Suzanne kept me motivated when I was so close to giving up. She shared her knowledge with me and boosted me back up again which led to me working on some fantastic TV Dramas and Films. I am now in my second year of working at Emmerdale and I love it. My dream to work in TV has come true and I will be forever grateful for all the help from A R Makeup School.
I recently finished my training at Aqua Rosa Makeup School and I couldn’t have enjoyed it more. We were given ample extra time to graduate due to the national lockdown delays and at all times made to feel supported even when we were not allowed into the school.
Having a father who works in film and TV gave me the inside knowledge about how highly regarded Aqua Rosa are in the industry, which made it so easy to choose them, and I definitely wasn’t disappointed.
The training was so industry focused and taught by skilled industry professionals, which for me meant that after being involved in several work experience projects, I quickly gained my first trainee position on Dodger, A Drama series based at Space Studios and then to my second job over in Saudi Arabia on Kandahar with Gerard Butler. I’m currently working at Pinewood Studios on a huge international production.
I can’t wait to see what my career has in store.
I joined Aqua Rosa make up school based on recommendation from a friend currently working in Film and TV. The school is professionally run by industry Makeup Artists along with qualified tutors. I’m really glad I chose to study at Aqua Rosa because the quality of teaching is excellent and my skills have greatly improved. The tutors are experienced, knowledgeable and offer important insights into how to become a successful make up artist. It’s been an amazing experience and now I am reaching the end of my training, I can’t wait to start my career. The staff at Aqua Rosa are very supportive and I feel confident knowing they will be there to guide me through the next steps.’
