About Us...

Hi, I'm Cassie and I'm a Makeup Artist. I've been in the industry for 25 years now and I launched the academy, CLMA, back in 2011.

I really struggled getting my career started when I began doing makeup, so when I became really established I wanted to give something back. 

I’ve been lucky enough to work with a huge range of clients from Vogue, Glamour and Elle Magazine, to working with music artists including Lady Gaga, Selena Gomez, Rita Ora, and Little Mix. I've also been the head makeup artist on shows at London Fashion Week and I've worked on Advertising Campaigns and Award shows worldwide.

I've had a really amazing career but my absolute passion is my makeup academy. Since 2011 I have trained hundreds of people just like you. The aim of my academy is to give you all of the support you need to live your dreams, because being a makeup school takes more than just teaching makeup.

I started out just like you, with tonnes of excitement ... 

But it was tough and there were a few times when I almost gave up. I doubted myself, questioned everything and I wasn’t sure: 

  • I had the skills needed to make it as a makeup artist
  • If could earn enough to do the job I love for the rest of my career
  • How to get in touch with and impress the contacts I needed to make
  • If there was room for me in an industry that felt saturated
  • If I was confident enough to achieve my true potential
  • I didn’t have anyone to turn to for help

That's why I set up CLMA. I want to help people like you to achieve your dreams in this amazing industry and be that support that I was missing when I started out.

Whether you want to work in fashion, TV, celebrity or bridal we can help. 

We have an amazing, super friendly team that includes some of the best makeup artists and tutors in the UK. 

In 2007 I opened my own makeup agency, Creatives Agency, representing artists around the UK. The makeup artists we look after all first started out with a course at CLMA.

We are so passionate about helping people like you, so have a look around and please take the opportunity to jump on a career chat with one of the team. I promise we are not scary, everyone on the career chats has trained in makeup and has been in your shoes! We are waiting to help, what are you waiting for?

I'll look forward to hopefully speaking to you and teaching you soon!
