Social distancing has undoubtedly changed the way makeup artists do their jobs, but that won’t stop you from running a successful business! By learning how to effectively provide virtual services, you can continue to book clients, build your brand and make a profit during COVID-19.

Luckily, QC Makeup Academy’s new Virtual Makeup Training provides everything you need to get started on the right foot!

The best part? Once you complete this one-unit course, you’ll receive a physical certificate that you can highlight in your resume.

QC Graduate Katie Stegeman’s Experience with the Virtual Makeup Training Course

Katie Stegeman is a professional makeup artist and the proud owner of Katie Stegeman Beauty. She has graduated from QC Makeup Academy’s Skincare Course and is currently a student in 6 other QC courses. (Wow!)

Recently, Katie also completed our Virtual Makeup Training and was kind enough to share her experience with the program. Here’s what Katie had to say!

Why did you enroll in the Virtual Makeup Training Course?

“I enrolled in the Virtual Makeup Course because I felt like now more than ever is the time to learn how to do virtual services well. I think that virtual makeup and beauty services will continue to be valuable long after the pandemic!

Expanding my client reach was also so important to me. Our current world is so technologically-based, but certain services can sometimes be hard to translate to an online platform. But as makeup artists, we do not necessarily have to be hands-on all the time.

The internet has evolved our careers! I really wanted to feel confident in the services I was presenting to my clients, and have professional training behind me so I could do this well.”

What valuable lessons did this course teach you?

“Seeing an actual virtual consultation, and being provided with worksheets and informative research, made all the difference in understanding how to effectively offer virtual makeup and skincare services!

The course walks you through what you’d actually have to do to be extremely successful at virtual consultations. That alone has given me so much more courage and understanding in terms of what I need to do in order to really be great at these services.”

In what ways do you feel this additional training will help strengthen your career and/or business as a professional makeup artist?

“Adding this Virtual Makeup Training Course to my makeup and skincare courses could not have been a better choice! I wanted to try and branch out into online skincare and makeup services, but I was not exactly sure how to go about it. So, this course was perfect!”

How does the training provided in this course better prepare you to succeed as a makeup artist during the global pandemic, despite the limitations of social distancing?

“With the current global pandemic, I wanted to be able to still do what I was passionate about. But as I said, I wasn’t exactly sure how to start. Not being able to physically meet with people can absolutely cause makeup artists to struggle to find clients.

Virtual makeup training allows us to offer alternatives! We can conduct online consultations and services with total confidence, and in a way that keeps everyone safe.”

Why would you recommend QC’s Virtual Makeup Training Course to other aspiring makeup artists?

“Having graduated from this course, I feel like I have the knowledge to confidently offer online services now. For new makeup artists who want to find a way to adapt their business to an online platform, there is a lot of value to be found in this course. QC Makeup Academy’s Virtual Makeup Training is a MUST!”
