    “The tutors are industry professionals and their knowledge of the makeup industry is incredible. Throughout the two years on the course, I’ve built up lots of confidence and learned so much about makeup. I’ve also had the opportunity to be part of the makeup team for the Opening Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games and was selected by Greg Cannon for the United Makeup Artists Expo.”
