    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.

It was really good considering it was on zoom as I wasn’t sure how easy it would be to see what to do, therefore was better than I expected. Also I feel like we fitted quite a lot in over the course of 5 days in total

Just completed gel nail course which was held online due to covid. It was fabulous! So much covered it such a short time without skipping any corners. I feel really lucky to have seen this advertised on Facebook and accepted from application.The course required quick English and maths test along with a small deposit with the promise of a £5 Amazon voucher upon registration. On completion of the course the deposit is refunded.I got the voucher and also having completed the course was also refunded my deposit.The course was held on Zoom so didn't even have to leave the house. I found it very easy to follow and ask questions if needed. All our lessons have been uploaded onto YouTube for our reference after if needed.I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Although I found the initial application process quite tricky the actual lessons and treatments learned were fabulous.I would definitely sign up for another. The tutor was lovely and very patient and I am really impressed with how everything was done easy on a screen. Way better than travelling to courses and I hope these become a way of teaching for the future. The group I was in for my classes was quite small (I think 7 or 8) so that was nice as well as smaller classes are easier to follow

At beauty college, I completed a level two and level three in nail technology. When I finished training CPBA, I continued to practice and study, focusing on acrylics because that is what I wanted to work with. I created social media accounts to connect with people in my area and then my career just went from there! I now have a business with regular clients and I rent space at Glamour Ready, a salon in Walton on the Hill, Surrey. The skills and qualifications that I have gained from going to beauty school have enabled me to be able to work within salons and push myself within self employment where there are no limits to my success. I always wanted to be self employed so it could fit around my daughter and so I could provide a better future for her. One day, I would like to open my own salon and bring out my own brand of nail products.
