    Enhanced my skills

    I took this course to enhance my skills as a beautician. I work in a beauty salon and have relative experience, but I always wanted to qualify in SFX makeup. This course has been ideal and is taught by a professional makeup artist, which makes it all the more interesting because you gain insight and inside information on the subject.
