In 2005, Lubna established Lubna Rafiq Academy, also known as LRA, with one mission in mind; to share her success and talents with budding makeup and hair artists, as well as aspiring business women.

Whilst LRA’s mission remains unchanged, the Academy has exploded into a household name, renowned for quality education in the field of makeup and hair artistry, and as a beacon for aspiring business women around the UK and internationally.
Training with the Lubna Rafiq Academy gives you the instant benefit of an industry recognised and highly acclaimed accreditation; the Lubna Rafiq Accreditation. This means that whilst you will have obtained some of the most sought after makeup and hair artistry techniques and skills in the industry, you will gain a seal of quality assurance that certifies your technical ability and performance in the field.

We have a rigorous process of assessment, which includes inspecting the following elements:

  • Technical Ability
  • Sensational Skill
  • Good Business Practice
  • Excellent Product Knowledge
  • Thorough & Diverse Applicational Skill

The Lubna Rafiq Accreditation is as much an honour as it is a reference and unique selling point to clients, which gives you a distinct competitive advantage over other makeup and hair artists in the field.

We’ve accredited and certified over 3,000 makeup and hair artists to date (and counting!), and this gives us a very privileged position within a very competitive and creative environment.
