Welcome to Cosmetic Couture

Cosmetic Couture is one of the biggest names in the aesthetics industry. Led by inspiring CEO Maxine McCarthy, Cosmetic Couture has treated around 200,000 people since it burst onto the scene in 2012. That’s almost a quarter of a million happy clients.

As well as doing treatments – some of which are offered at discounted prices as models for the students – Cosmetic Couture trains both medics and non-medics in a phenomenal range of techniques and treatments. Many of these are unique to Cosmetic Couture and have been trademarked and are recognized as industry and fashion-leading names, like B-Stung, HD Lips and others. Many of these sought-after courses and treatments attract people from all over the world as Cosmetic Couture has established a global reach.

Our Success

Cosmetic Couture’s success is founded on a very clear understanding of the aesthetics industry and its history – from the fashion icons of the 1950s like Marylin Monroe through to the modern trends driven by the likes of Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner and others. We know what our clients want and how to give them that perfect look or teach them how to deliver the most cutting-edge modern techniques.
