My name is Karen Casserly. I am currently a student at The Makeup Crew studying Module One, Makeup and Skin care.
Throughout the course there have been many interesting opportunities to gain work experience, which is excellent and gives you a great insight in to what it’s like working in the Makeup Industry and what it’s like to work on your own initiative.
I was lucky enough to take part in the work experience video shoot for Griffith College graduate collections.
I must admit it was nerve racking, it was my first time doing something like this with no tutors to guide me, however I amazed myself, I got through it just fine and I enjoyed every minute. It has really boosted my confidence and given me more hunger to work in the industry.
I had 3 female and 1 male model. It was my first time to do makeup on a male, so I was delighted to gain that experience.
The look I had to do was day makeup for a natural beauty look to enhance the models natural beauty. Over all I was really happy with my finished looks.
I cannot wait to go back for the next Photo shoot in June. It was wonderful learning experience and really clarified for me how good the Makeup Crew is as a college and the opportunities they provide their students. I am really excited about my future career in the Makeup Industry.
