Amazing students, amazing reviews, amazing new careers.
After working as a care assistant for nearly 8 years I decided it was time to change my career, I wasn't sure what to do until my friends started encouraging me to do makeup. I searched the internet for weeks checking out different courses in my area, college wasn't an option as I have two young children and childcare is very pricy. I came across the Glamcandy website and instantly fell in love with them. I ended up booking 5 courses and landed myself a wonderful job. To start with I had zero confidence and now I'm getting more confident by the day I'm so grateful to GlamCandy for giving me this amazing opportunity to work with them.
I just wanted to say the tutors were great on Sunday and made it a really fun and interesting day. I learned lots of new things. Can’t wait for next week and I am enjoying doing the mood board.
Wow! What a brilliant day! Absolutely fantastic actually! The amount I have learned in such a short space of time in just my first week already is amazing!! Would like to say a massive thank you to tutors Leanne Cathcart and Yasmin Moayyad for today's class! The day flew cos you guys kept it upbeat but mega informative at the same time! Now off to sit and do some research for my bridal mood board for next week! Roll on, I love being a GlamStudent!
I booked myself in for a hair course and makeup as I wanted to learn both. The tutors were very helpful and patient. I thoroughly enjoyed the hair course as I was not confident to start with. It was explained step by step any questions or difficulty I experienced was explained to me. The course was very laid back and fun I gained a good amount of knowledge, and was surprised that working with hair is not all that daunting as I thought it would be. I did have times that it was not easy to create a hairstyle but I was in good professional hands as I know I can at anytime ask for help and would get looked after at the end of the course too which I think is great! I have always enjoyed using makeup on myself, family and friends, but I wanted to take it to another level. I wanted to upgrade my skills and I cannot believe what I have achieved. At first I lacked confidence and didn’t believe in myself but when my tutors reassured me was doing great this was an encouraging breath of fresh air and made me realise I can do this! I worked on a photoshoot through GlamCandy which was the most amazing experience ever! This course has shown me how much creativity I have. It has given me so much passion to create amazing looks. It has provided me with a good stepping stone into my future. I thank GlamCandy and all the tutors for believing in me and look forward to more opportunities to come.
I booked my Makeup Artistry Course back in November after years of being interested in makeup and how to apply it. I found GlamCandy online and am so glad I did. After 10 minutes chatting to Hayley on the phone I was hugely excited and gutted I had to wait 2 months before it began. And so, on the second weekend in January I made my way with butterflies in my stomach to my first full day on the course. I was a mixture of nerves and excitement – turns out I had no reason to be nervous, I couldn’t have asked for more encouraging, knowledgeable and supportive tutors – they inspired a real team spirit amongst everyone doing the course and helped mould us into the best MUA’s we could be. With the course being split into theory and then different classes for different areas (vintage, bridal etc) it meant we got lots of practical experience on different areas of makeup. The tutors Vicky and Carol also gave really valuable advice on what it’s like to do bridal consultations and tips on what photoshoots can be like and working with clients. They were always on hand to push us a bit further or calm us down while in a flap, a smokey eye look caused me to almost have a panic attack when it went wrong, but Vicky calmly showed me how to correct the mistake and carry on. The homework assignments were worthwhile and good fun and the prizes each week for the best homework were a really nice touch too. The end of course photoshoot was SUCH a fun day and it was really inspiring to look around at all us students and see how far we had come – the looks created were incredible. For anyone who has always had an interest in makeup, wants to train as an MUA or just needs a hobby I say book now, you won’t regret it. I’m genuinely sad the course has ended but the upside is I made some lovely friends and I know we’ll stay in touch.
Booking a GlamCandy course has been life changing for me. Being a new mum I was stuck in a rut and in December I felt like I had nothing to look forward to for myself especially around my own development. That changed when I signed up for the GlamCandy course. I started to do things for myself and attended my first demo class at the beginning of January. Life in the past 2 months has been an exciting whirlwind. I have done things that in December, I would not have contemplated doing such as going on a photoshoot with no real experience at all except for the party eyes demo class!!. By attending your classes I have been able to network with experienced pro make up artists. Recently I assisted Charlotte one of the tutors on a vintage hen party where I applied make up and lashes on 10 people it was a scary and invaluable experience! Loved it, love make up and hopefully if I am able to build enough work and be successful I will be able to have enough job security do this wonderful MUA job full time and not go back to the bank as a boring business analyst. Thanks Hayley and team, I look forward to working with you and GlamCandy going forward.
