What our students have to say…
Great course, thanks for the experience
Brilliant course, worked at my own pace. Learnt heaps of good tips and I would highly recommend this to anyone.
Really enjoyed doing practicals on my family and friends and they were very impressed with the results. I learnt a lot about products and tools, about applying different makeup on different skin tone and how to look at a client’s face and access what is best for them.
I’m hoping to use my skills in the future to do some make up artistry and with a bit more practice I think I could get quite good!! Great course, thanks for the experience

Thank you so much for helping me reach my goals
I was extremely worried at first that it wouldn’t be what I want in a course but the course is honestly absolutely amazing! It’s made to be really enjoyable, fun and easy to complete and best of all in your own time.
I could not recommend New Skills Academy any more! It’s now gave me something more to put on to my CV and get my career started in the area I’d love to be in for the rest of my life. Thank you so much for helping me reach my goals and achieve my dreams!

Very interesting topics, I feel like I have expanded my knowledge and have more of an understanding and can use the techniques I have learnt professionally. I feel more confident in my ability!

This Makeup Diploma course I wanted to have almost half of my life, from when I was a kid. I really enjoyed studying and was really happy to finish this Makeup Diploma course.
Liked videos in modules, PDF’s were easy to save. Not only that I learned new tips on how to do makeup, I also learned how to deal with marketing and advertising for my future business.
I’m sure that will not be the last course that I finished. And I will highly recommend to my friends to this online tutoring as it is great way to gain knowledge. Thank you.

I enjoyed my whole experience! it was not only engaging but it was fun and enjoyable. I was able to study anywhere I was and learn at my own pace, I learned so much and I would do it all again! I would recommend this to anyone.
10/10 professional and had important information and it’s really in your best interest. I loved every second and can’t wait to do more courses. It had additional information and you don’t realise how much you’ve learnt until you look back, it doesn’t feel like studying cause it’s so good. If you’re a busy person and would like extra qualifications this is the perfect place.
