Layla is thoroughly passionate about beauty therapy and in particular Make Up Artistry, within which she is highly qualified and with over 10 years’ experience in the industry. Layla has worked across all aspects of the industry from fast paced cosmetics sales to working as a Freelance Make Up Artist creating everything from high fashion to bridal make up. She also has vast experience working as an Educator and Assessor within all aspects of beauty and make up artistry as a Lecturer within a large further education college. Layla is an enthusiastic but patient, supportive tutor who prides herself on the high level of training she offers to all students.
“My experience within the industry has been very varied and helped me to understand the requirements of this fast paced industry. I enjoy sharing this insight with my students, not just teaching them the skills required to deliver their treatments to a high standard but also to guide them on their first steps towards a new career in beauty. I am so passionate about sharing my wealth of knowledge with my students, with make up artistry being my particular area of interest.
“There is so much to learn and the industry is always evolving with new treatments and techniques always coming through. I enjoy staying up to date with the industry as this gives me the edge to best support students and give them confidence going in to this exciting sector; that they can take the skills and techniques learnt on their training courses and utilise these to begin earning doing what they love!”

My Recommended Courses
Make Up Artistry is an absolute passion for me and the range of make up courses available ensures The Beauty Academy offer something for everyone whether wishing to just have a taster with an introduction course, an existing therapists wanting to refresh their skills or a make up enthusiast looking to complete accredited training to begin working as a Freelance Professional Make Up Artist. As the industry changes and only gets more competitive, I highly recommend learning to provide add-on treatments such as Eyelash Extensions and brow grooming so that you build regular clients and offer a ‘one-stop shop’ for beauty treatments.”
