For the 1960’s the students took inspiration from the iconic Twiggy. With doll eyes, pale lips and false lashes we think for … Continue reading

We’re towards the end of the first semester, with the students on our 1 Year Higher Education course having had their first two assessments and our shorter courses either finishing next week or breaking for Christmas. In the mix of their more recent work, it’s always good to remind ourselves of where we started and how we have progressed, especially in such a short length of time. They started Basic … Continue reading

Wine and Chocolates with Charlotte Tilbury

Wine and Chocolates with Charlotte Tilbury

It started with a post on facebook regarding a networking event where make-up artists could try and buy make-up from Charlotte Tilbury’s new range. Four of five hundred  emails later (which apparently took 4 hours to read), Delamar Academy was among established make-up artists and trainees testing, buying and chatting to each other. For me personally it was particularly pleasing to see Delamar graduates Amanda Robert (12-Week, 90s) and Katy … Continue reading

Delamar starts accepting credit card payments

Delamar starts accepting credit card payments

One of our most frequently asked questions is whether we accept credit cards. We have always offered Professional Career Development Loans and up until 2013/14 we offered student loans. However we have decided to accept credit cards to allow our students to make their own decisions about how to fund their course where they need to borrow the money do it. For those of you that don’t understand how credit … Continue reading

The not so pretty side of make-up!

The not so pretty side of make-up!

Its important to sometimes remember that our make-up courses are not all about pretty faces and smokey eyes! This term the students have donned their overalls and have been trying their hands at Basic Prosthetics. During the first week the students study the method of bald cap making and application. The whole process can take some time and there are definitely quite a few lessons in patience along the way! … Continue reading

Work experience at the London Palladium

Work experience at the London Palladium

Our most commonly asked question is regarding work experience after the course; essentially is there enough work out there and will we provide anything. We never guarantee anything, but I don’t think we’ve ever not had any or had a graduate that we didn’t offer work experience to. Julie Wong (16-week, 2012) gave us the following report: “14 Delamar graduates and students helped out with hair and makeup in aid … Continue reading
