    Career aspirations

    I have always loved to dabble with makeup. I’ve wanted to turn my passion into a profession many times over the years. I finally got the opportunity when I was recommended this course by a client. I’ve never had so much fun learning as I did during this training. It was a complete dream come true to take this course and qualify as a makeup artist.

    Solid support

    Study365 has a great team on hand that provides solid support to all their students. I’ve not studied at an e-learning center before, but I couldn’t be happier that I took this course there. Not only was it one of the most convenient forms of study, I also absolutely enjoyed learning about becoming a makeup artist.
