Amazing team, always organising the most creative & exciting shoots!
Love working with Glamcandy and styling their photoshoots! Such a great makeup academy and the team are amazing to work with. They allow everyone to be as creative as they want, I always have a great time being their stylist!
I attended Glam Candy to attain my HNC, I not only achieved my qualification but I have went on to start up my own business with the knowledge and experience I gained. The tutors were very professional and highly experienced in every aspect of the industry. I gained a huge amount of knowledge but had so much fun and got the chance to do photo shoots and so many other opportunities. I highly recommend GlamCandy to anyone interesting in pursuing a career in makeup!
Thank You to Glamcandy Aberdeen for making our models look amazing for Aberdeen fashion week, and thank you to Rhiannon for my make up i loved it! We Cant wait to work with you soon! Thank you so much once more.
