I'm Lynne Mills Celebrity MUA & Founder of Girl Meets Brush /the Academy & here we focus on not just the skills you need to become a make-up artist but what you need to be successful!

'When I started as a Make-Up Artist I found it all so overwhelming on how to build my business & just felt everywhere I looked everybody else seemed to be doing better than me!

Then I found the best way to really stand out & create a successful business, so much so I managed to go Full Time & leave my job within 6months!

I've never looked back, created multiple successful businesses, set up my own award winning bridal make-up team, worked as a celebrity make-up artist, had shoots that have been featured in Vogue & have even had worldwide beauty product launches since then!

In the Academy I go through the key ways for you to do this & how to really get the best head start.

Get the make-up skills you need, understand your own Style as a MUA & get your signature look nailed!

Create that amazing portfolio that will have people falling over themselves to book with you! Focus on your Market & Ideal Client, as well as how to get yourself out there & build your confidence!'

So whether you are just thinking of becoming a Make-Up Artist & you're taking those first steps or already started & just trying to make it in the industry, then this is for you!

Now what I hear so much of the time is this -

"I feel like my make-up isn't good enough" & "I don't have enough confidence in myself"


'How do I get bookings, how do I get myself out there & promote myself on Facebook/Instagram"


"I don't know where to start with getting my website up & running, pricing myself, networking to getting my portfolio looking good"!

These are all common questions along with just - 'how to I get started!?'

As I've said I've been there myself, not sure on direction & how to get out there, thinking 'how do so many others do this'?

So this is where I thought out a solution & share my experience to knowledge on how to really build a successful business & career as a MUA for all aspiring new make-up artists (total beginners too). Getting things off to a flying start for you

Everything is in bitesize sections, with easy quick wins for you to start building up your training as a MUA, we also have feedback & practical tasks for you too so you can build on your skills & confidence.

We run amazing Challenges throughout the Year to help focus & improve your Skills, also offering amazing opportunities, including our Fashion Week Opportunity

Which runs alongside our Publication Opportunities too within the Academy too, so this really is the best time to get started in the membership!

Move forward with this year & into 2022 with our AMAZING new Opportunities

Since 2019 we have ran the incredible opportunity for some of our students to join us backstage at the House of iKons show during London Fashion Week where we are the proud Make-Up Sponsors.

Even for the beginner that doesn't feel quite ready for this just yet, you can still benefit from the challenges as well as the experience, as we will share everything within our academy for everyone's benefit!

However these opportunities alongside the publication opportunities are open to everyone regardless of their experience.

Within the MUA Success Programme & Academy Membership we have a full bank of trainings from creating amazing make-up looks with the latest trends & skills, where we have also placed our Signature full Accredited Online Make-Up Course 'Becoming A Successful MUA' within the membership too.

This is CPD Certified to assure the high standard of quality & integrity of the Training provided throughout the course.

Also accredited by the International Council of Online Education Standards to ensure an exceptional level of Online Training.

This really packs in everything you need to know to become a working MUA & is also a great addition to those that have already trained.

It is all in bitesize form so you can take it a step at a time at your own pace.

We run theory side on how to understand Skin to Foundation, Contouring & Colour Theory. Then Face Shapes, Eye Shapes & Brow Correction, all condensed into an every day working guide that leaves out all the fluff & just gives you what you need

We have amazing Video Tutorials breaking down technique for you, so you can apply the perfect foundation, contour, highlight, blush, apply smokey eyes, plus eyeliner flicks, to shaping brows & applying lip.
Also we run through full looks as well such as creating that Natural Beauty look for Bridal as well, then a Classic Vintage style to also creating a more dramatic Special Occasion Make-Up.
We also have a section on starting out in the Industry to then working out your Goals & Success for the next 12 months.

Finally we have our Photo Shoot Brief, where you will have the opportunity to set up your own shoot & submit your work to be published with our Media Partners (this is selected on an ongoing basis).

We always have an ongoing opportunity for ANY Aspiring MUA at ANY stage to participate & potentially see their work published!

The MUA's that have had their work published with us have ranged from the complete beginner to MUA's that are starting out in the first year or so of their business.

It literally could be you next time & our Publication opportunities are always open, we run one as part of our Signature Make-Up Course & more throughout the year via our Make-Up Challenges within our community in the Facebook Group.

Our most recent Publication is below with Professional Beauty Magazine & our new Opportunity about to be published with The Glossy Magazine!

Testimonial - "Lynne herself and her amazing Academy have given me the confidence and inspiration to be the best makeup artist I can be and put myself out there. Without Lynne I wouldn’t be filling my diary as quickly as I am as she inspires me, challenges me and advises me! I know it is not only me she has helped, but many girls starting in the industry as well." -

What some of our Students & Community Say -

"My Make-Up journey started in August 2018 when my friend said I would be great at make up. I really wasn’t sure and had no confidence what so ever, but thought you only live once so started to search the internet for online courses that would provide me with a certificate. I found the academy and thought it sounded just the ticket! The modules were so easy to follow and the support was unreal. Within no time my confidence was boosted and I actually thought I could make something of this. I was then picked to feature my work through the publication opportunity in luxe magazine, which I’m so proud of and thankful to Lynne for. The continued support from her and the group is amazing & I would highly recommend the academy, I started from nothing to having my own business within a year!"

— Joanne Davies

Before joining 'Girl Meets Brush' the Academy, I was just working mobile and didn't have any direction. Although I had the drive and tenacity I didn't really know what to do with it and how to establish myself. Lynne has helped in so many ways, not only with direction but she helps you build up your confidence and truly reach for your goals. I now have a great website which I receive regular bookings, and a brand name and logo that is helping to gain more followers to my social media outlets. I am already working a lot more and seeing my dreams become a reality, without Lynne I feel this would not be possible and cannot thank her enough.
— Trisha

"I honestly think this is one of the best courses I've done, Lynne is amazing, she is so helpful & caring and I think she's set up a fabulous academy for all abilities of Make-Up Artist. I can imagine doing this course will help me become a professional makeup artist with all the skills & knowledge I've gained, it is amazing & can't recommend it enough."

— Erin Stewart

"What can I say? Lynne Mills and her team at the Academy have been amazing. I was a bit sceptical at first seeing as it was online, but the amount of interaction, feedback and practical work you do and receive made any doubts I had vanish. You are set tasks to complete which although you can do on yourself to practice, you must also do on models, which I felt gave the course realism because in the world of makeup artists you work on others and not just yourself. There is also a fabulous Academy group where you can talk to other students, share work and ask for advice which gives it another sense of realism as if you belonged to a 'real' four walled college with other students. The courses are filled with hints, tips and so much makeup knowledge from Lynne, but also other makeup artists in the industry. Lynne also gives opportunities within the group which make you want to work harder, but if you want to know what those are, your better off joining the academy and becoming the makeup artist you want to be!!!`

Lynne Mills / Founder

Hello & thank you for being here!

I'm Lynne & the founder of Girl Meets Brush. For those of you that don't know my story already I started out as a MUA back in 2004.

Since starting my career I have been very fortunate to set up & run my make-up team all over the country & work on some amazing projects! From working with celebrities, setting up a international brand collaborating with Eylure & Harvey Nichols, to having my work featured in publications such as Vogue & Sunday Times Style.

This has all lead me to set up Girl Meets Brush the Academy to work with make-up artist to create their own amazing businesses!

Building yourself as a brand & succeeding in business, is not just about the technique of applying make-up, but it's knowing about how to build that client base, carve your career & be a working successful make-up artist, and this doesn't mean jetting off to London & New York leaving your family behind (although you can if you like I guess!).

It is most importantly building the success right where you already are & in this growing industry the opportunity is all there, trust me!

“My mission is to help & support aspiring make-up artists to produce high quality, timeless & stylish work that will put them ahead of their peers."
