We’ve trained more successful make up artists in the industry than anyone else

Aiming only for success, students are encouraged to treat their works as an expression of their individuality. In this way our professional make up courses are unique. To maintain high standards, we provide a professional studio with individual workstations, allowing students to practice their skills with expert guidance. We enrol a maximum of 16 students in each class, to ensure a more personalised and thorough training programme.

Personally chosen by Glauca, our tutors are always ex-students of the school who bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to our make up artist courses. This ensures the exceptional quality and world leading reputation of the make up artist courses provided at our make up school.

Commanding highly successful careers in the industry, the current work of our tutors provide invaluable insights into the latest looks and trends, as well as practical advice on how to get started as a make up artist.

During her career, Glauca’s work featured in international fashion magazines such as Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. Glauca collaborated with Valentino, royalty, celebrities, and global photographers Norman Parkinson and Lord Snowdon.

Comments from previous students

I’m often asked for advice by people wanting to get started in the world of make-up. There’s no magic formula, it’s about working hard and getting yourself noticed.

To begin with, though, you’ll need a fantastic grounding. When I knew that I wanted to become a MUA, I attended the incredible Glauca Rossi School of Makeup in London where I learnt the basis of the skills and tricks that I still use today.

About Us

Charlotte Tilbury

Professional Make Up Artist

Going to The Glauca Rossi School of Make Up was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. 100% practical lessons, taught by make up artists currently working in the industry is the key to well-trained, current and varied teaching. The combined experience of Glauca and her teachers gave me the best skill set to build on when I finished the course. I couldn’t have wished for a better start in make up and I’ll always be thankful for everything Glauca and her school did for me both at the start of my career and now providing me with brilliant assistants. To me, no other school can compare.’
