Angelica Hamlin

Student Ambassador

I chose to become a makeup artist after developing an injury in my wrists. This injury prevented me from using my haircutting shears and holding heavy heat tools (like my blow-dryer and curling irons) on a daily basis. For a while, I was worried that I had lost my career! I had been a cosmetologist working in the beauty industry for years, and the beauty world is where my passion lies. But as a cosmetologist, I hadn’t worked a lot with makeup. So, I was eager to learn! That way, I could still continue working in the industry I was born to be in!

As a mother with young kids and a lot of side jobs, training in a brick-and-mortar school was next to impossible! As a QC student, there were times when I got so busy at home that I needed to take a month off – and that was okay! I already had years of cosmetology education, but makeup was something that my cosmetology training never really explored in-depth. I’m so glad to have the benefit of this extensive knowledge that QC Makeup Academy provides, as I’m now able to add makeup services to my beauty expertise.

What makes QC Makeup Academy so unique is its flexible, self-paced learning environment. The courses deliver such a wide array of information that anyone can access, at any point in their personal schedule. I had taken a couple other makeup courses before finally finding QC, but none of them had the level of detail or valuable information that QC offers – especially for the tuition price! I also love that everything is taught by an actual makeup artist who has years of experience in the field.

For me, QC Makeup Academy saved the day. I was able to gain a whole new skill-set that I now use on a regular basis as a freelance MUA for brides and fashion photographers!
