Hello, I'm Sunita Johal of Crimson Catz. I'm a health and beauty therapist and professional make-up artist with 20+ years experience under my belt. I have a vast amount of experience and knowledge in this field and have worked on many national and international catwalks and behind the scenes with major brands during my career.

I have recently been recognised for my years in the health, beauty and make-up industry by F.H.T for my work, inspiring others and recently featured in International Therapist magazine along with many other publications. Crimson Catz have also been on various radio stations as experts in our field. They include: Bang FM, London, Heart FM, Three Counties Radio and Tropical FM.

Crimson Catz have been accepted by the International Institute of Complementary Therapists as APPROVED TRAINING PROVIDERS and our courses are also recognised by NASMAH, the National Association of Screen Make-up artists and Hairdressers.

The courses are open to anyone looking for a new addition to their career skill set and to also achieve the best through advanced techniques using a 'high end' cosmetic range including Supercover, Illamasqua, NYX and more. The 'safe beauty' methods are also used whilst applying make-up.

The basic make-up course is for one day only and costs £200. This will lead to the F.H.T accredited professional advanced level make-up course; yes this is an internationally recognised qualification.

The professional advanced (HD) make-up course costs £615 and will consist of four intensive days training and will look at other aspects of the industry, including business. Please see the table below for course content.

Upon successful completion you will gain a certificate of achievement for the basic make-up course and a diploma for the professional advanced level make-up course. Both courses are based in Luton, Bedfordshire, UK. The maximum number of learners to a class is 1- 6, to ensure everyone gets the attention they need.

We also cater for anyone looking to only learn one or two areas, for example fashion (1 day) or Asian/Western bridal (1 day). We call these 'add-ons' and cost £275. Please contact us to discuss your specific needs.

You will need to bring in your own model on all days.

Should you wish to start your own portfolio, the course will cost more as a professional photographer will set-up to give you the best photos for your portfolio.

Payment: A non refundable deposit (50%) of the course fee will confirm your place on the course that you wish to attend. The final balance needs to be paid a week prior to the course start date.
