Make-up artist Cassie Lomas and TV presenter Jenny Frost launch Make-Up Academy

Celebrity make up artist Cassie Lomas and best friend TV Presenter Jenny Frost today announced the launch of their first self funded venture, the Cassie Lomas Make Up Academy. Situated in Manchester’s Northern Quarter, the Cassie Lomas Make Up Academy will offer professional courses - from media make up to fashion and photographic make up artistry - along with more accessible short courses for ladies (and men) who are looking to acquire skills to better apply their own make up. The focus of the Academy is to equip budding make up artists with the skills required to be successful in a range of fields in today’s industry. Looking to emulate her personal success, Cassie, with experience spanning 14 years, has worked with a wide client list most recently including Lady Gaga and Coleen Rooney and is keen to nurture new talent within the field. The classes, ranging from nine week courses to one day workshops, will be delivered by a team of established industry experts, including Cassie Lomas herself. The personal approach to teaching will be hands on, dynamic and fresh and the added tool of the academy's own photographic studio will allow further growth towards students building a much needed professional portfolio. Jenny Frost will complete the duo's business with the running of the studio arm of the Academy. Available for professional bookings the space will also be utilised by students to enable them to practice their work whilst gaining experience watching real life photo shoots. The Cassie Lomas Make Up Academy will launch on 25 November this year and will open for business on 14 January 2011.
