One of our lovely CLMA Graduates, Katie Bishop, popped in to tell us about where her career in makeup has taken her thus far! profile

How did you hear about CLMA?

As I was living in Austria, I left it up to my mum to find me a good makeup school. After researching a number of makeup academy’s she found that CLMA was definitely the best around!

What is one of your highlights from CLMA?

The experience I gained throughout my course working on the likes of Britain’s Next Top Model Fashion Show, Vogue’s Night Out and the many photo shoots that were organised at the academy are definite highlights that have really helped my career. I also learnt a lot from the Master Classes that your able to attend during and after completing your course as part of CLMA’s aftercare service.

How has CLMA helped shape your career?

The course gave me the foundation and confidence to build my career as you are not only taught how to apply makeup you learn how to conduct yourself and how important personality is on shoots to build contacts that ultimately lead to more job opportunities.

What are you working on now?

At the moment I am working with Rodial Skin Care and Makeup. I have done quite a few of their photoshoots and am now the lead artist for their makeup tutorials.

What are the best clients you’ve worked with?

Rochelle Humes, Rodial Skin Care and Makeup, Abbey Clancy, Hollywood star Kellen Lutz, Union J, Lauren Pope, photoshoots for the Hollyoaks cast, Chloe Lewis and honestly the list goes on! I feel so privileged to have worked with so many wonderful clients!

Would you recommend the Fashion Makeup Course at CLMA?

Yes, I highly recommend the Fashion Makeup Course at CLMA as it gave me the confidence and skills to take my career to the next level and opened my eyes to how amazing this industry is. CLMA has a family atmosphere from day one and I walked away with some amazing friends.
