Why did you decide to take the course?

I wanted to get certified as a makeup artist and learn as a professional.

What are you doing now as a career?

Right now I am a freelance makeup artist as well as a makeup blogger. 

What are your aspirations and ambitions for your future career?

Ten years from now I would really like to be a established beauty influencer as well as have my own makeup brand. 

Did you find the course useful?

Yes my experience at LSBM and this course specially was great. This course was the perfect balance of learning basics as well as learning the more creative and SFX side too. The course was helpful in understanding how it is to work in the industry from the insights of our instructors who are well know members of the industry.

If the course was extend a little more. Maybe it was divided into more days so that the SFX parts weren’t rushed.
