Embracing challenges and opportunties at GlamCandy, self-employed MUA Morgan Lennox is a rising star.
Starting her course with GlamCandy in August 2018, Morgan went on to work as a self-employed makeup artist based in Kirkcaldy.
Specialising in glam and creative makeup looks, Morgan prides herself on utilising the utmost skill and accuracy to carry out her work, displaying her true passion in every look.
Before applying for the HNC Fashion Makeup course with GlamCandy, Morgan had been following the college for a while and felt she wasn’t very confident within herself and as a result, was apprehensive about applying.
However, seeing the lavish photoshoots and exciting course content encouraged Morgan to follow her heart.
She said, “I knew I would have so much fun studying at GlamCandy. I am so passionate about makeup and GlamCandy has gone over and above to meet my expectations.
“The best part of the course is attending the photoshoots as the environment is very fast-paced and has taught me how to work well under pressure.”
During her studies, Morgan was able to improve on her time management, an essential skill for working with external clients. The course has also greatly boosted Morgan’s confidence in working with different face shapes and skin types, an aspect she would not have learned studying with a state college.
The help and encouragement Morgan received throughout the duration of her course gave her a sense of self-assurance she wouldn’t have achieved without the help of her fellow students and tutors. This encouragement made way for her to build her own business as a self-employed MUA, where she has flourished both as an artist and within herself.
We encourage students to take on any opportunities that GlamCandy have to offer, as the benefits to their career and confidence that these experiences can offer are immense.
Morgan’s future career prospects are endless, however she is most interested in working as a freelance makeup artist and possibly venturing into creating YouTube beauty content.
Whilst studying, our students are able to use a wide variety of elite cosmetics. GlamCandy are dedicated to giving students the best quality products for practicing their technique and delivering a flawless finish to their clients make-up. Morgan’s 2 favourite products are:
Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation
The high coverage and silky smooth, skin-like texture is one better than any other foundation Morgan has ever tried.
Illamasqua Precision Gel Liner in Infinity
Morgan finds this product to be extremely versatile and the most effective base for the perfect smokey eye.
Morgan believes that you shouldn’t follow the makeup rules that you see every day on social media.
She said, “Do what you feel comfortable doing first, then you will figure out what works best for you. There should be no rules in makeup!”
