Are you a graduate or current student of Makeup.School?

I’m a current student.

What inspired you to become a makeup artist?

I have always loved makeup. I’ve always watched a lot of makeup videos on YouTube and read up on the fascinating world of makeup artistry. Throughout the years I’ve done a lot of makeup on myself and on others for Halloween, Christmas and New Years. Makeup has always been my big passion and I can’t wait to work in this industry! My big dream is that I get a job in theater where can I do amazing artistic makeup – I know that it will come true, I just have to keep fighting for my dreams and never give up!

What made you choose Makeup.School over other online makeup artistry programs?

Makeup.School was recommended to me by a very good friend. I’m very grateful to her. I definitely don’t regret it!

What do you think of the program?

I think the program is really incredible. I’ve learned so much already! I’ve truly enjoyed every moment of this program.

What is your favorite aspect of the program?

My favorite aspect of the program is when they teach ‘How To Apply Makeup On Different Eye Shapes’. I’ve also met lovely fellow students in the Facebook Group. The group is terrific –  we can share with each other our opinions, makeup looks, experiences, etc…

How prepared do you feel you will be to begin your career as a professional makeup artist once you complete the Makeup.School program?

This program has given me a lot of self-confidence and just reinforced that this is what I’m supposed to be doing. I feel very prepared to begin my professional career. I’m very excited and very much look forward to it!

What has been your favorite makeup job so far?

So far, my favorite makeup job has been on my friends for Halloween. After I did their makeup, we went to a Halloween party together and everyone praised my work. It was a good feeling…I was proud of myself!

What are your future plans? Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years?

In 5 years I hope my dream will come true and I get a job in a theater. I’m going to keep fighting for my dream and not give up in the difficult moments. In 10 years I see myself having a private salon and possibly start teaching others my makeup artistry knowledge.

Besides makeup, tell us what else interests you?

I love to dancing, music, reading, swimming and working out.

What makeup product is your absolute MUST HAVE?

I cannot live without mascara!

What one piece of advice would you give to someone who was just starting Makeup.School?

I would advise you to not hurry, read the book, watch the videos thoroughly and always KEEP PRACTICING!

What one piece of advice would you give to someone who is just starting their Makeup Artistry career?

DON’T BE AFRAID! Believe in yourself and be confident!
