Testimonials students

Yasmine Schiettecatte - Belgian (Flanders)

I fondly remember the pleasant atmosphere in our classroom, and the fun times during our shooting days. My most precious moments during the Academy were the internships, especially those on film sets. For the first time, we entered the real world, which was very impressive.  

Through these internships I was able to build my network, and this allowed me to find my first jobs after the Academy. The first two years it was hard to make ends meet, but thanks to my connections I was able to gradually build my career to where I am today.  

I mainly work in the event and theatre sector. For example, I worked at Tomorrowland (Winter),  and We Can Dance. I also work a lot at big corporate parties, where I get a lot of creative freedom. I work at Bobbejaanland during the Halloween period, creating zombies and scary figures. In the theatre sector, I have worked on The Little Mermaid, Beauty & The Beast, Winter Revue and the Ketnet Musical, and in the future I will also tour Belgium and the Netherlands with the Mega Mindy tour and K3 & the 3 little pigs. I have also already worked on films, for which I spent several months abroad. In between, I work for series at, for example, Ketnet and VTM.

Sarah Islam - Dutch/Pakistani

After completing my high school in Pakistan, I immediately knew I wanted to study at a renowned make up school. My research to find the best schools in Europe led me to the MAKE UP FOR EVER Academy Brussels, and this was the best decision I could have made.  


I chose the 10-month course, where I met many people from other cultures and learnt a huge number of new techniques that I did not know existed. My teachers were not only talented but also able to guide us well during our creative process.  

My favourite moments during the Academy were the internships. Here I could perfect the techniques we learnt in class, and I got an idea of what it was like to work in the professional field. This gave me confidence in myself and my abilities, and I discovered my passion: fashion and editorial make-up.  


After my year in Brussels, I moved to Rotterdam to build my life as a professional make-up artist. All beginnings are difficult, but through networking I found a motivated group of models and photographers I work with. My goal is to one day see our work on the cover of Vogue!

Andreea Marandici - Romanian

I have great memories of the MAKE UP FOR EVER Academy Brussels. My favourite moments were the afternoons when we practiced, I had a lot of interaction with my teachers and my fellow students. We were given lots of valuable information, and we were able to experiment a lot while preparing for our shoots. I enjoyed creating complete concepts, making accessories, thinking about the image as a whole,.... We learned so much more than just make up!  


After my training, I was able to work at MAKE UP FOR EVER as a make up artist and teacher.  


I am very grateful for everything the MAKE UP FOR EVER Academy has given me, and I am excited to continue sharing this passion with others. I am currently working in Romania, where I continue to apply and develop everything I learnt during the Academy. I am developing my own make up course, as teaching remains one of my biggest passions.
