Emma said, “I have learned that the makeup industry is full of opportunities!

“I would say to someone considering applying to this course to go for it.”

Before applying for her HNC, Emma was apprehensive about the course as she was unsure of her career options. However, it has proven as highly educational with endless opportunities within the industry.


The wide variety of products from premium brands such as Illamasqua, Kryolan and Caudalie that were available for use throughout her studies was a highlight of Emma’s course. Her favourite, and most recommended product is Illamasqua’s Pure Pigment.

Emma said, “This is my favourite pigment as the colour pay off is so vibrant and really makes the eyes stand out. 

“Just start off with a little and build up the product as you go.”

Due to the high quality of premium branded products, GlamCandy are dedicated to equipping our students with the best quality products available for building their kits. All products we offer on our courses can be bought either in-store, or from our shop.
