When it comes to looking fabulous, London may have intrinsic cool but Zen’s Academy is fast putting Birmingham firmly on the polished make-up map. With inspirations from traditional culture to high fashion, make-up artist Maz is setting the pace in the Midlands….
With London College of Fashion training standing her in a good stead, Maz from Birmingham opened the doors of her beauty academy 9 years ago. Now, much established as a centre of excellence when it comes to learning the art of hair & makeup, its grown to become one of the largest academies in the city. Known for putting the ‘artistry’ in her hair & makeup work, Maz’s image making takes it traditional and contemporary to avant-garde and catwalk. Fashion has most recently been at the forefront, with exciting assignments including the call to be one of the makeup artists working on Miss Sri Lanka Italy in Milan plus official selection as the makeup artist, with team in tow, to help backstage at the Miss India UK contest. In addition, bridal exhibitions to in-house photo-shoots feature on her packed schedule. At the academy, her makeup training courses are just as popular, with students offered ongoing support and the chance to go backstage and take part in a variety of great events. Held on a monthly basis the courses are fully accredited by The Guild of Professional Beauty Therpists.
“Whatever the brief is, whether high fashion or bridal, no two assignments are the same. I’m as happy working on traditional and contemporary looks, as avant-garde and catwalk”
