“I signed up a while back with QC in the Master Makeup Artistry course. Absolutely loved it. Learned so much, and met so many people. I am getting out of my comfort zone in makeup and going to try the Airbrush & Special FX courses after I'm done the Pro with Nathan. I will definitely recommend this course to anyone. Just got my certificate in the mail yesterday as well. Thank you so much. I might end up doing all courses… even fashion and hair.”
