Gazelli to run skincare course at London School of Media Make Up

Luxury skincare brand Gazelli has teamed up with the London School of Media Make Up to offer a course to give students thorough and scientific skincare credentials.

In a drive to advance the standards of skincare knowledge among make-up professionals, the brand will run a two-day intensive training programme as part of the school’s three-month Complete Make-Up Diploma course, conducted by Gazelli’s head of training, Alicia Falero.

Falero will cover the structure, composition and functions of the skin and equip students with the skills to conduct a thorough skin analysis, as well as pass on professional application techniques. Gazelli products will be used throughout demonstrations.

The brand aims to support the industry at entry-level and impart a strong foundation of skincare knowledge that students will continue to draw on throughout their careers.

“Make-up courses too often ignore or sweep over the topic of skin preparation, so starting with an awareness of the epidermis and its heath allows the artist to bring out the best result in a polished makeup look,” said Falero. Rebecca Wordingham, director of The London School of Media Makeup added: “Gazelli and The LSMM have the same ethos; we both believe education in make-up, skincare and beauty are key for success and progression.”

The London School of Media Make Up was founded ten years ago by award-winning make-up artist Jeanne Richmond and offers courses designed for aspiring artists who want to work in the film, television and fashion industries. It is now operated by Richmond’s daughter Rebecca Wordingham, also an artist and school alumni.
