We then asked Kayla about her experience with GlamCandy;
How has GlamCandy helped gain employment?
“Having a qualification in makeup with GlamCandy is incredibly reputable and the course was immensely informative.
Practising and learning theory work 1-1 with the tutors in small classes of 20 has helped you feel as you get the upmost care and support from them.
Claire Stead, the Student Development Director has also helped as she taught us interview skills, how to improve your CV and role-play classes about being in interview situations. This is invaluable experience since Claire has been in the industry for years and can give honest and critical advice.”
What is the most important skill you learned at GlamCandy?
“Studying with GlamCandy has not only helped with my makeup skills but it has also helped to gain confidence. I feel like I’ve come leaps and bounds and improved on all aspects of my life.
I also can’t mention how GlamCandy has helped me master the art of blending! Since there are so many different tutors and students, I learnt so many techniques and styles of makeup, all over a 6 month period!”
