The makeup course is a great way to learn and have fun, We’re Learning how to properly do makeup and it’s a great experience overall – it never gets boring. Experimenting with bright colours and doing casual neutral tones is great to learn which you prefer. A great experience overall!

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!

Hannah Wright HNC Graduate

I’ve worked for Glamcandy on photoshoots and I’ve always had an absolutely great experience, i went in and shot as a model. Often students are asked to put together a look on a model then professional photographer will come in and take pictures for the student’s portfolio. Glamcandy have put together amazing photoshoots and its always super fun! many creatives in the same place just bouncing off each other’s talent and energy, it really is a great environment. i can’t express who lovely everyone is from staff to students. if you’re thinking of studying with Glamcandy i would 100% do it.

I’d like to say thank you so much for all your support throughout the course and especially towards the end when I was struggling to meet the completion dates due to personal circumstances. I am so happy that I passed let alone getting a ‘B’. I wouldn’t have managed without the extra hours you gave me to come in and helped me with any queries and always assisting me when I needed help throughout the course. I think you should also be proud of yourself for being such an amazingly talented tutor. You’ve always been patient, kind, fair and caring. Also, fun whilst always remaining professional, that’s always a bonus from a student's point of view. It makes learning so much more interesting.

Fiona Mclellan Dunfermline

My time at GlamCandy has been such an incredible experience from start to finish. Taking the leap to follow a passion of mine and study the HNC fashion makeup course was the best decision I have ever made, I have learned so much and massively improved my confidence. During the six month course I was able to see my own makeup skills develop and improve as well as see myself become a more resilient and confident person. I have always been nervous meeting new people and taking on new challenges but GlamCandy and my amazing tutor Paulina helped to bring me out of my shell and give me the reassurance I needed. Paulina was so supportive and was always there to help no matter what the issue, she kept my class going through a difficult period of having COVID and learning online. I can honestly say I enjoyed every single unit that we covered on this course and I am leaving with such a broad range of skills that give me the opportunity to follow several different career paths. It was an amazing way to meet new people and I believe that I have met friends for life. I would recommend GlamCandy to anyone who is interested in following a creative career path or just has a true passion for makeup artistry. My eyes have been opened to the huge range of options there are in terms of career paths within the beauty industry and I can’t believe how much content was packed into the six month course. I am leaving GlamCandy not only as a better makeup artist but as a better person and for that I cannot give enough credit to Paulina and the other incredible tutors.
