Our Tutors

All of our staff and tutors have a wealth of industry experience, with each member of the team bringing something unique to the table. From specialists in cut creases and glowing skin to those on hand to give you business advice to help you launch your makeup career, we offer the best all-round media training in the region. 

Founded in 2008, Aqua Rosa has seen other makeup course providers come and go, but our belief that proper training, providing accredited, Internationally recognised industry qualifications has stood us in good stead. 

Our tutors have worked across tv and film over a combined total of more than 40 years – they have the experience to develop students and the knowledge to prepare them for industry.

We know how important it is to have continuity throughout your course, so you will have a core team of qualified tutors teaching your course. But media is a fast-changing industry,  so Aqua  Rosa brings in working industry-specialists to provide you with added insight into their work, helping you to build your contacts and get a foot in the door.
