“Over the last year we've had the pleasure of working with and introducing our students to Gazelli by including a skincare training module into our Complete Make-up Diploma. Over the course of two days, the students have the opportunity to learn core skincare knowledge from the incomparable Head of Education, Alicia Falero. The students gain an extensive, biological understanding of the skin, from the structure, composition and functions, to conducting a thorough skin analysis and professional application techniques. Having this in-depth understanding of the skin allows the students to skilfully prep the skin for make-up application! The Gazelli skincare training the students receive is a fundamental starting point for their careers as successful make-up artists."

Makeup Artist Student

"I thoroughly enjoyed the two days spent with Alicia learning about Gazelli products, the history and the science behind the skin. Alicia is a brilliant teacher and the two days made me feel empowered and confident. A personal highlight were the techniques we learnt when massaging the face- as well as benefitting the skin- I believe it sets us up to be more memorable and successful as makeup artists."

- Kia Simonelli

Makeup Artist Student

“I was really pleased by the lesson which clarified every aspect concerning the skin, its functions and the way we need to treat it. Furthermore, I really enjoyed the fact that we had the chance to know and try new products. I' m very glad that I met Alicia. She is an amazing teacher, very vivid and inspiring. I' m looking forward to having even more lessons with her in the future and I would be very glad if we meet again.”

- Christina Semertzaki
