'we nurture and develop creative talent, guiding our students to a rewarding career in make-up artistry; empowering them to succeed with the best artistic, professional and personal skills.'

Michael Perks Make-Up Academy was created with the sole aim of providing professional make-up training, which is accessible and affordable for everyone.


Students at the Academy will gain the necessary experience and essential skills required to succeed in this exciting industry.

In 2015, Michael saw his dream realised when he opened his first make-up school in Widnes, Cheshire. Michael and his team's vision for the Academy has grown recently, and success and demand for training courses has led to significant expansion and relocation of the business.

Michael and his team are experienced freelance make-up artists and offer a full range of make-up services in addition to facilitating MPMUA courses.


The team understands what is required to succeed in this demanding and competitive industry, and this relevant experience is one of the unique selling points of the Academy’s services. Up-to-date knowledge and involvement with the industry allows Michael and his team to connect course participants with a wide number of industry professionals and organisations.

As a highly experienced make-up artist, Michael’s work has appeared on TV (including ITV, BBC and various other channels), in music videos and countless glossy magazines.

Michael has also worked on a range of live events such as London Fashion Week, Manchester Fashion Week, Liverpool Fashion Week, Miss England, and Mr World. In addition, Michael is currently lead trainer for Pierre Rene who supply over 380 salons nationwide.

Michael and his team are enthusiastic to share their passion for their art and the industry, and look forward to you joining in their success.
