QC Makeup Academy student ambassador Whitney Conn is a student in the Special FX, Airbrush, and Skincare courses. She’s also a proud graduate of the Master Makeup Artistry course.
I have been a makeup student at QC Makeup Academy for a little short of two years, and it has been a wild ride. I do not consider myself to be a lucky person, but I was in the right place at the right time when I enrolled. My journey with QC Makeup Academy has been a match made in heaven! I would recommend QC’s makeup artist training courses to anyone looking to become a makeup artist.
Below are the reasons why.
Finish Makeup Courses at Your Own Schedule
For many of us like myself, full-time workers or parents, going to a brick-and-mortar school was out of the question. Between paying tuition and keeping up with a busy schedule, becoming a makeup artist didn’t seem feasible. That was until I found QC Makeup Academy.
Being able to keep up with my daily life and doing the course work at my own pace made me realize that it is possible, at any age, to chase after your dreams.
Personalized Feedback From Your Makeup Tutor
Every makeup course you take will have an expert tutor assigned to you to give you personalized feedback. They’ll go over your assignments with a fine-tooth comb to give you the very best feedback. I have had the honor of having Nathan Johnson as my tutor now for two of my courses. He never misses a beat when it comes to giving me the best feedback to better my makeup application skills.
A word of advice, listen to your tutor’s feedback multiple times! Take to heart everything they tell you about your improving your makeup looks and application style. Your tutor is just as passionate about helping you as you are about pursuing your career as a makeup artist.
Fundamental Makeup Training
Why else would we enroll in a makeup school but to get the very best in fundamental training? These are the skills that will sky rocket you to the next level in your artistry. And it’s where all of your additional skills will spur from. Without the proper foundation training, we end up being sloppy and unhygienic makeup artists.
I do not know where I would be if I didn’t have the business training from my Master Makeup Artistry course. Thinking back, I would have been lost if I just had the artistry skills, but didn’t know how to prepare to enter the industry. I feel, as a student, that QC Makeup Academy has thought of everything to make sure you have the all of the information to be a successful makeup artist.
Course Materials You Can Always Go Back To
I spoke to someone recently who went to a brick-and-mortar school for Special FX makeup. One thing we spoke about was retaining information that we learned in our schooling. She mentioned that if she didn’t work for a while, she felt like she would forget the concepts and techniques she learned. This happens to some of the best makeup artists, which is why they take refresher courses. For those of us going to makeup school online, we have all of our course materials available to go back to. We never have to worry about not being able to reference something or that the information will be unavailable to us.
More than Just The Courses
QC Career School as a whole is led by some incredible people who truly care about your makeup journey. The school is available on social media platforms, email, and phone for any help you may need. All you have to do is ask!
They support their students by encouraging their amazing work on social media, providing tutor feedback, and hosting contests for students to show off their skills learned in their courses.
Finding a school that truly believes in your dreams is worth more than anything. Take the time to invest in yourself when it comes to your future. Let QC Makeup Academy help you reach your potential in your artistry by starting with the proper training.
