About the Studio
The magic happens at our Foundations studio, based at the prestigious Blackburn Enterprise Centre, our studio is designed to give you a plush, relaxing environment for you to gain new transferable skills to perfect your own makeup or in turn grow as an artist in a professional studio setting.
We have designated free-flow areas for relaxed informal levels of teaching as well as individual workstations specifically designed for us to help you practice your skills. We also have the space for you or your model to change into that perfect outfit.
The Blackburn Enterprise Centre is located in a popular area of Blackburn, within a few minutes’ drive from motorway networks; so we are very easy to find. We are also lucky to have a large car park for the use of our clientele.
Here at Foundations, we have a genuine passion for teaching people the art of hair and makeup. We wish to differentiate from the over-saturated provision of bridal makeup courses available. We pride ourselves in our informal methods of teaching whilst ensuring that you leave with masses of skills and knowledge. All our courses are fun and interactive; but with a professional aptitude and a real friendly approachable feel. We will adapt to work around what you, the client, would like to learn. We use only high-end cosmetic brands and skincare and will give you one-to-one training on a real personal level, for example; we can give you the know-how on a smokey eye or exceptionally flawless skin, we can do all of this and more. In return, the only thing we require is 100% commitment to learn and practice your new transferable skills. We envisage our clients to range from both hair & makeup artists with significant knowledge but needing to refresh their training to learn contemporary and on-trend styles. As well as the clueless girl that stands at the makeup counter thinking ‘I would like to wear makeup well, but I don’t know where to start!’ Secretly, we love to help the second sort.
