Why Choose Centre Stage Makeup Studio?

Students say:

Not only can I highly recommend how much is covered and how much I have learnt within the course duration but the amount of experience I have been put forward on by Judy Neame herself on film sets and photo shoots. I have gained now an IMDb account from the work I have done and promised future works with film producers and directors once I have qualified.

Judy is a wonderful teacher with the fantastic mix of vast amounts of knowledge, a fun and entertaining teaching style and a very kind and relaxed nature that instantly makes you feel comfortable and encouraged.

It took me years to really find the perfect course that offered everything from period makeup, to special effects and hairstyles and I found it in Judy. She really understood where I was going with my ambitions and was supportive, yet strict at the same time.
