    I’ve been thinking of a career change in recent years, and one thing that kept popping into my mind was a makeup artist. I’ve loved makeup since my younger years but never found the right time to turn it into a career. This course came up during my search for a recognised training in makeup and I’ve since completed it with much success. I’ve already setup my makeup artist service and have a few clients. I hope to build on this in the future. Thank you Study365 for your efforts to help me with my dream.

    Overall, very enjoyable

    The course overall was very enjoyable. It was hard to imagine that an online training could be deemed as exciting and fun, but this is exactly what it was. The training was presented in a well organised and effective manner. I learned so many makeup tips and techniques.
