Since completing my “3 Day Advanced Make Up Artistry” course at Sean Maloney Make Up Academy, my career has completely took off. I’ve worked on music videos, films, assisted Sean and his team at Miss Manchester and Miss Swimsuit UK plus I’ve gained so much confidence and I honestly can’t thank Sean enough for his time. Without Sean and his academy I wouldn’t be where I am today.
