About Us

An international creative college of excellence and a reputable industry leader, LA College of Creative Arts is at the forefront of providing academic training and professional creativity across locations including Dublin, Cork, Limerick and London.

After travelling extensively across the world studying every element of the make-up and beauty industry, LA founder Lorraine O’Neill returned home in 2005 and spotted an immediate gap in the market for a college that offered a superior level of training in the arts; and so LA College of Creative Arts was born.

With award winning courses in makeup, fashion and special effects, LA is leading the way in creative studies both nationally and internationally.

LA is now delighted to announce that a percentage of all course fees will go towards The Beyond Skin Foundation, a charity founded by Lorraine O'Neill in conjunction with The Hope Foundation that aims to allow underprivileged women in India to become self sufficient through skills based training.

LA College is delighted to announce the launch of a full Summer Programme in our newly allocated studios in central London! Find out More

Blaithin Keary

Professional Makeup Course

I absolutely loved my time at LA, as a graduate of the pro course everyday was something new and fun, it covered everything from bridal,special effects,theatre aging, catwalk and high fashion to name but a few. Every tutor made the class fun and very enjoyable. At LA you are taught the skills you need to make you the best possible makeup artist. I would recommend LA College of Creative Arts to anyone who is interested in pursuing a career as a makeup artist, they have such a great range of courses to suit everyone. Since graduating I have worked on numerous photoshoots,short films,tv3 advert and I am delighted that I am now back in LA as a tutor.
