Sarah enjoys working on photoshoots the most and is the career path she is steering towards. In class, Sarah has consistent help in building her confidence and also preparing for assessed photoshoots on the HNC course. The help from the tutors in class is an essential part of their course as our tutors are makeup artists working in the industry so can offer vital knowledge and assistance to the students from a professional perspective.

Sarah mentions: “Before joining GlamCandy I felt I could go into photoshoots and think I knew what I was doing but not always be as confident, but now after studying the HNC with GlamCandy I’ve been given tips and had a lot more experience so I can go into shoots confidently. The main part is that I am confident in my skills and in my knowledge of what products are essential to bringing in my kit!”


Not only did Sarah gain experience on a professional photoshoot but she gained vital life skills with GlamCandy to be prepared for the beauty/editorial industry. In GlamCandy, we prepare our students, not just about the thorough knowledge of makeup but about the industry itself and how to prepare yourself for it.
