Why train with Smudge-free?

Why train in semi-permanent cosmetics with Smudge-free?

Our training is on a one-to-one basis giving you maximum hands-on experience and 100% dedication from tutor to student. Choosing the right training school is one of the biggest investments you will ever make. You need to know that they are using the latest digitally-controlled equipment and that their pigments all carry a hygiene and toxicology certificate. This denotes the safety level of pigments and is crucial in keeping allergic reactions due to pigments applied to an absolute minimum. When choosing a trainer, ask to see their certificates and check that they are up to date. If not, they will not have mastered the latest developments in the industry and therefore cannot possibly pass them on to you.
