Dream of launching an exciting, successful career as a makeup artist? Here’s your sign to take professional makeup courses this upcoming summer!
A Little About Me
I ran my own modeling agency for 15 years. During this time, I organized beauty contests and fashion shows. In addition, I worked alongside models, photographers, and makeup artists. I also organized photoshoots, castings, and modeling courses. Throughout all of this, makeup was always a key factor. As such, it was during this time that I fell in love with makeup artistry! Ultimately, this is what made me decide to learn it professionally.
I’ve talked many times before about why it’s important to acquire professional makeup knowledge. Moreover, I’ve delved into why it’s critical to master your techniques, complete professional makeup courses, and obtain a recognized certification. Now today, I’m going to discuss why this upcoming summer is the perfect time to get professional makeup training!
5 Reasons to Take Makeup Courses This Summer
1. You May Have More Free Time
Do you have a bustling life? Do you work or already study full-time? Are you a full-time parent?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you’re probably quite the busy bee! But when summer rolls around, the kids are finally on holiday. If you’re also a student, then you might be, too. Moreover, maybe you use the summer season as a chance to take an annual leave, vacation time, etc. Either way, there’s a good chance that you might not be quite as busy in the summer as you are the rest of the year.
If you’re going to have more free time this summer, why not maximize it by enrolling in makeup courses, and using this time to buckle down and focus on your training?
Still have a pretty hectic schedule, even during the summer months? No problem! Thanks to QC Makeup Academy’s distanced, self-paced learning environment, you have the freedom to work on your makeup courses whenever it suits your availability! That’s right – absolutely no deadlines!
2. The COVID Pandemic is Almost Over
With the end of the COVID pandemic finally on the horizon, the summer of 2021 is the perfect time to get professionally trained and earn a reputable certification! After all, businesses everywhere are beginning to open back up. By the fall, the makeup and beauty industry could very well be back to normal.
If you enroll in makeup courses now, you could easily graduate by the end of the summer. In doing so, you’ll be ready to hit the ground running and launch your makeup business at full-speed as soon as it’s safe to book clients again.
3. A LOT of Makeup Courses Will Offer Summer Discounts
Many makeup schools will offer awesome deals during the summer holidays. For example, you could find “summer discounts”, “Back-To-School specials”, “summer giveaways”, etc. As a result of these super hot deals, makeup courses even more affordable. Given that online makeup schools are already cheaper than their brick-and-mortar alternatives to begin with, this is a perk that’s too important to overlook!
Did you know that QC Makeup Academy holds regular, monthly discounts? It’s true! Plus, once you enroll in one program, all other QC makeup courses will be offered to you at 50% off!
4. Easier Access to Models for Your Assignments
Throughout the rest of the year, you won’t be the only one who’s busy. Your friends and family will also be, too. This can sometimes mean you’ll need to put in a bit more work into getting models for your makeup course assignments.
During the summer, however, they’re more likely to have a freer schedule, same as you. As a result, it’ll be a lot more convenient (and easier) to have them donate their time to being your model. Plus, this can also give you an even bigger group of people – meaning more diversity – to choose from.
Remember: the more practice you get under your belt, and the more you get to work on different ages, skin tones, skin types, etc., the better your skill-set will become!
5. Summer is The Optimal Time to Embark on a New Career Path
For many, the summer season often embodies a time of renewal, change, and opportunity. What better chance to start a new journey and pursue the career you’ve always dreamt of?
Not to mention, as in-person gathering limitations are loosening up, more events and activities will be getting organized in your local area. This means you can expect a MASSIVE amount of bookings, clients, and career opportunities! Indeed, now is the best time for you to hone your craft (or refine it), improve your makeup techniques, expand your services, and/or launch a brand-new business by completing professional makeup courses.
5 Reasons to Enroll in Online Makeup Courses
1. Cheaper Tuition
As I mentioned earlier, the cost of online makeup courses is typically cheaper than in-person ones. QC Makeup Academy offers awesome payment options, so you can select the payment plan that best suits your budget! You can pay in full (and get a discount for doing so) or pay monthly.
Plus, once you’ve enrolled with QC, all future courses are half off. QC Makeup Academy currently offers 11 different courses in the makeup and beauty industry – and they’re always expanding and looking for new courses to add to their roster! Moreover, every single on of their programs will give you either a certification/designation or a certificate once you graduate. These certifications and certificates are all internationally-recognized.
This is an awesome way to master your makeup skills without breaking the bank!
2. A Personalized, One-On-One Learning Experience
In a physical classroom, the instructor is responsible for teaching you and dozens of other students at the same time. Moreover, you may not always get to sit front and center during the lesson either. It can become all too easy for little details to get missed. As a result, your training might not always be 100% personalized to you, your learning style, and your needs.
Through online makeup courses, however, you’re GUARANTEED a more personalized, one-on-one environment with your industry-leading tutor. All of QC Makeup Academy’s tutors are legitimate beauty experts; there specifically to help you accelerate your career with success.
My tutor was QC executive instructor and celebrity makeup artist, Nathan Johnson. Speaking from personal experience, the guidance Nathan gave me was unparalleled! He guided me through my course, and taught me everything I needed to know about makeup theory and professional techniques. In addition, he gave me countless helpful critiques after every single unit I submitted.
Believe me: you’ll be impressed and will love every moment of QC’s learning process!
3. You Get The Same High-Quality Education As You Would in a Physical Setting
There’s a common misconception that the quality of online makeup courses can never measure up to the quality of in-person ones. But this notion is 100% false!
In reality, the learning experience you’ll have in an online makeup school will be exactly the same as it would be in a physical class. I’d even argue that the quality of education is actually better through an online school! For starters, you’re given more flexibility due to the self-paced learning method. Not to mention, you have the freedom to train wherever you please.
Furthermore, QC Makeup Academy offers amazing Student Support services, an online student center, and even a Virtual Classroom on Facebook!
4. You Get More Bang for Your Buck
Many online makeup courses – such as the ones offered by QC Makeup Academy – include and deliver all of the course materials (and makeup kits) as part of your course tuition! At QC, each program comes with full-color texts, video tutorials, and countless hands-on assignments. All of your physical materials will be mailed directly to your door at NO extra cost! And since the course is done online, you’re also given a digital copy of your texts and instructional videos, too.
For example, QC’s most popular and comprehensive program is the Master Makeup Artistry Course. As a student of this course, you’ll not only be sent the physical copy of your course materials – you’ll also get their Master Makeup Starter Kit at no additional cost! This professional makeup kit offers the widest selection of shades and colors to complete a large variety of looks on any skin tone. Plus, it provides you with the tools needed to successfully complete your training!
5. More Promotional Discounts Than You Could Ever Imagine
Seriously, who doesn’t love a chance to save even more money?
As I touched on earlier, online schools tend to offer more frequent and better promotions/discounts for their makeup courses. For instance, there’s always a killer, exclusive promo you can take advantage of at QC Makeup Academy! Every time I turn around, they’re offering something new.
Here are just some of the current discounts QC is running:
- The ‘Elite Makeup Kit Upgrade’ promotion allows you to get QC’s Elite Makeup Kit 100% free! This kit includes a highlight palette, contour palette, eyebrow palette, 4-pack of false lashes, a makeup travel bag, and a stainless steel palette with a spatula. Simply use the promo code ELITE at the checkout when enrolling in your makeup course!
- Again, when you enroll in one of QC’s online makeup courses, you’ll get 50% off all other courses of equal or lesser value!
- There’s even a group discount! Id you’d like to enroll with a friend, groups of two or more are eligible to receive a 25% discount per person when you enroll!
- QC frequently offers 2 courses for the price of 1 – so make sure to keep an eye out for that offer!
- As a QC student or graduate, you’re automatically eligible for amazing makeup discounts with huge, big-name brands! Check out the full list of brand partners here.
