Student Work

DFMA only offer work to DFMA Grads, keeping it in our DFMA Family and giving our artists a head start in a competitive industry. Advice and development is given to all those that attend a DFMA make up course.

We have also had a fast turnaround of Grads getting fast tracked into some of the biggest jobs and doors opening within the industry.

There may also be chances to assist on music videos, TV shows, fashion shoots and films, providing invaluable experience and potential job opportunities.

All advice and opportunities are exclusive to DFMA Pros, giving you a better chance of success.

Some of our Grads have gone onto get scholarships with the BBC with the DFMA certificate and also work on counters with Charlottle Tilbury, MAC Cosmetics, Bobbie Brown, Nars, Laura Mercier and Space NK


Open Days

DFMA holds open days, providing prospective students with an opportunity to meet teachers, have a look around to get a feel for the environment we work in, watch a demo and discuss career options and which course would best suit them.

Here is some feedback from some of our grads that have gone into the field of hair and make up since completing a course at DFMA make up academy –

Ellie Bush

I’d just like to say a huge thank you to Davinia and the crew for what DFMA has done for me! I'm currently working on a small film with a very well known cast (I've done makeup for Sue Johnston, Melanie Walters, David Schofield and Alex Ferns!!!) and have just been booked on the make-up and SFX team for a feature film where Neill Gorton is doing the prosthetics!! I am SO excited and had to share with you all. Thank you DFMA!!!!! Xxx

I've been doing a lot of bridal work, now almost fully booked for summer! I've worked with some amazing bridal and fashion photographers, and I was lucky enough to get my first press sheet from doing Sophie Andersons' make up for a charity function! All thanks to DFMA!

Kirsty Nichol‬

I graduated last year and have had some fabulous jobs so far.... I've done a TV pilot, which has been nominated at the New York, Berlin, Cannes and Rome film festivals. A couple of feature films, both due out this year. I worked on BBC3s 'Pramface' and a lovely drama picked up by Channel 4. I've done various other shorts, magazine shoots and TV shows. I've just finished the UK part of a musician’s tour, assisting on wigs and makeup for the band and backing dancers. And just the other day I was booked on Downton Abbey (eeeeeeeeek!!!)

Julia Edwards‬‬‬

I graduated in December 2013. I've done a wedding and have more booked for this year and next. I've done lots of test shoots with agencies, represented models as well as portfolio shoots that I styled and came up with the concepts for. I have done the makeup for several actors and actresses in a TV commercial for a charity and did Chrissy B's makeup for her. I also worked on the press event for Wellbeing of Women. I've been offering client makeovers and makeup consultations from home, which is proving successful.

I have had an amazing 5 weeks at DFMA. I can’t believe how much is covered on the TV Film and Theatre course, I have learned so much. The tutors really are top class, always giving a thorough insight into the business, as well as letting us in on their personal tricks of the trade.

This course is perfect for anyone looking to start a career as a makeup artist in TV, Film or Fashion, I would recommend it very highly! Thank you so much DFMA…
