After meeting 7 years ago on makeup counters, Avril and Jade quickly formed a firm friendship from their mutual love of all things makeup! Over the years, the girls have worked alongside each other for one of the worlds leading makeup brands and have shared amazing life experiences, leading to the strong bond they have today!

Over time both the girls outgrew working in retail and carved out successful careers as freelance Makeup Artists. After receiving a high volume of requests for makeup lessons/ tutorials, the girls quickly realised there was a gap in the market in the South East for a modern, quality, informative training academy, so they joined forces and created Allure!

Creating a unique, vibrant, welcoming environment was so important to the girls as they wanted the aesthetic of the academy to reflect their personalities and for their students to feel comfortable and excited about where they will be training! With the ever- growing popularity of social media in mind, strategic lighting and bespoke areas in the Academy were created to give our students the perfect photo opportunity to showcase their new skills!

We hope you all love our beautiful academy as much as we do!

Hi I’m Avril Jarrett,

10 years ago at the age of 18 I made the exciting decision to attend college where I earnt my NVQ Qualification in Makeup Artistry. Growing up I always had a passion for makeup and attending the college course fed my obsession even more, I was hungry to become as successful as I could in this field. Upon leaving college I started working on Makeup Counters and have worked for various prestigious brands such as Dior, Bobbi Brown and MAC Cosmetics. Whist working for MAC I started to build up my own personal Makeup business on the side offering makeup services as freelance and slowly started to build up my own clientele. In 2018 I had built up enough clientele to be able to leave MAC and branch out into the world of makeup by myself. I have had the pleasure of working with all sorts of different people and also had the opportunity to build up a loyal Celebrity clientele. I still to this day love what I do and this is an absolute dream to help other hungry MUA’s to join the industry.

Hi I’m Jade Ewen,

I am a self taught makeup artist. Originally starting off as a face painter in a boutique at 16, I always had a love and flair for being creative! After going to University to study music (and always doing friends makeup when I was there!) I fell into a job in insurance and very quickly realised it wasn’t for me. My passion for makeup was so strong that I decided to find a job on a makeup counter and work my way up from there! After a few years of gaining the knowledge, skill and experience from other artists, I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to do Celebrity/TV work and now have many celebrity clients whom use me regularly for events/ red carpet and photoshoots. Teaching makeup was a natural progression and I think my passion and love for what I do is stronger than ever and I’m so excited to pass on everything I have learned to the next generation of artists!
