    I learnt everything in the level three make up artistry beauty course. It was full time for six months and it covered the basics, such as how to apply everyday make-up to special effects, to how to sell products. Learning about special effects was the most inter-esting for me because I would really like to work in film production. I really enjoyed creating bruises and wounds, turning people into witches or ageing them. I also liked creating period make-up and working with prosthetics. I finished the beauty training in June, and by September I had a job. I work at a Chanel counter and as a freelance make-up artist doing every day and occasion make-up. I really like my customers and colour matching and working with different skin types, and that I can be creative in my job.
