I’ve always been interested in makeup and was trying to find the right course that suited my work schedule.
I found the makeup crew through Instagram from following some of the past students and the tutors . I learnt a lot about the course from a Snapchat story they explained each module , after attending the open day I felt very welcome and got lots of information and after talking to the tutors devised module two would be best for me. I really enjoyed module two as it went though the basics of makeup and we all built up our skills together!
We had four different tutors which I enjoyed because each one of the girls has different skills and techniques ! They thought us about the industry, makeup , skin and lots more ! Each week we had a theme and look to do , from a classic bridal , festival , high fashion and instagram look!
One of my favourite looks to do was a festival inspired masquerade look , lots of glitter , colour and fun involved ! We had a few masterclasses and guest makeup artist but the most exciting guest was at our graduation ceremony! Keilidhmua one of inglots most talented artist came to do a demonstration and give us career advice ! I graduated back in September and since then I’ve been freelancing with weddings and makeup appointments at the weekend ! The skills I learnt have really helped me , from kit layout to communications with clients and networking with other makeup artists!
