The Academy was founded by me, Kristina Gasperas, a member of The Wedding Industry Awards judging panel and previous National Winner for Bridal Makeup. The ethos is to provide the industry standard of intensive, private tuition for beginners and seasoned professionals alike.
We also have our Online Academy which is growing fast, with professional bridal MUAs and hairstylists from all over the world subscribing to our continuous online education and mentoring.
Over the years I’ve had thousands of bridal and special occasion clients, I’ve also enjoyed working on various exciting projects such as celebrity photoshoots, editorials, fashion and beauty shows. This job is my passion, my life and my happiness which I love spreading around.
Life is meant to be lived to the full doing what we love the most. I believe that if you do the job that you love, you’ll become great at it. But to become the best you need to have a strong foundation which is where our education comes in.
I attribute a big part of the success of my makeup artistry career to the fact that I was taught privately by one of the best – somebody who inspired me to change my life and provided me with their knowledge and undivided attention in all the intricacies required to master beautiful bridal makeup.
After all, good tuition can save you many years of wasted effort figuring out what works and what doesn’t. We Academy tutors have condensed our years of expertise into our teaching methods, to ensure you get the maximum benefit and a clear route to success.
I want to share my knowledge and skills with you and take the same pride in your success as you do.
