Creating An Amazing Portfolio
Understand How To Put Together That Killer Portfolio & Stand Out from the Crowd!
As a Make-Up Artist Your Portfolio is the most important first impression you will make to potential clients & agents, get it right from the start & your career will get off to a flying start.
Whether you're a Beginner looking to start out, or you have been working in the industry for a little while now, really taking time to focus on your Portfolio from the outset is so Essential.
So many Make-Up Artists get started with little to no Portfolio shots & just having a few pictures up on Instagram/Facebook isn't enough to get those bookings flooding in.
In this course condensed & power bitesized course, I'll show you how to put together an Amazing Portfolio, how to really Hone Your Style as a MUA & create incredible work that will have people queuing up to book with you!
We also work through setting up your own Photo Shoots to Creating looks for Fashion/Editorial & understanding Make-Up Briefs, plus working on set at Photo Shoots & with Photographers.
You will learn how to Network & contact Agents as well as Photographers, and most importantly get yourself BOOKED!
Along side this we have our Photo Shoot Brief Bonus, where you will have the fantastic opportunity to set up your own shoot & submit your work to be featured in our Media Partner Professional Beauty Magazine who will feature some of the work produced by our students on the course.

What some of our Students & Community Say -
Lynne herself and her amazing academy group 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
Before joining 'Girl Meets Brush' Academy, I was just mobiling 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 me in so many ways, not only with direction but she helps you build up your confidence and truly reach for your goals. Through Lynne's challenges, I now have a great website which I receive regular bookings, and a brand name and logo that seems to be helping 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.
Lynne is such an encouraging mentor and empowers women through her kindness and knowledge. She gives you the confidence to do better. She is natural and extremely friendly and that was my main reason to train under her .
I joined Lynne's Facebook Group & everyone is so supportive & kind. Lynne herself is very hands on sharing so much info & offering constructive criticism along with many tips. She mentioned her Academy and I knew I wanted to be a part of that. The Price is so reasonable, especially for what you get out of it. The knowledge, videos, collaborations and pure buzz of the whole Academy is phenomenal. I'm extremely happy to be a part of this community and can't recommend it enough.
Frequently Asked Questions
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!
