Here is a little bit about me and why I have decided to take those vital steps and enrol in the QC Make up academies make up artistry course and why the traditional approach did not fit my needs.
Why not college??
Hey there everyone. I have been interested in taking the first steps to becoming a make up artist for a really long time and so I applied to college. I was accepted but due to my son having to do an extra year at nursery I am unable to attend this year. I was totally gutted but I knew that sacrifice’s would have to be made when I became a mother.
So I started looking online, initially I was searching for books or tutorials on how to become a make up artist in order to gain as much information as possible before re-applying to college next year.
That’s when I stumbled upon a make up academy that sounded to good to be true.
About QC Make Up Academy, and why its right for me.
The one thing that firstly attracted my attention to this academy was the fact that they had payment plans in place. As a mother of two young kids, I do not have the funds to pay for the course in full. The course costs £958 all in. You have the option to pay this in a variety of ways, either, in full, monthly, Bi weekly, or weekly. For me the best option would be to pay it weekly as these payments are obviously the lowest. My payment plan would be as follows. £14 per week, every Tuesday for 70 weeks with one last payment of £5. I have not come across any other courses that offer this flexibility.
Once I had a look at the prices and saw how flexible they were I then had a look at the different types of make up artistry courses they had to offer. They’re are two courses that I was interested in, the first one is the Make up artistry course, this is the description of the course that is given on the website ” Learn the fundamentals of makeup artistry, daytime, evening and bridal makeup. Then, learn how to start your own freelance makeup business” The other is the course that I am enrolling in and that is the Master make up artistry course, here is the description of the course given by the academy on the website “Learn everything in our Makeup Artistry course plus makeup for theatre, movies, fashion shows, and photo shoots.” Pretty much what the first course offers but with a more in depth look at make up and the business side of things.
After deciding what course I was interested in taking I then looked in to what I was getting for my money and exactly how the online learning schedule worked. With it being an online course you can study at your own pace there are no deadlines to meet. You get a make up artistry starter make up kit as well as DVD’s, books and a personal tutor. There are six personal tutor and you are paired with one who will grade your work and will talk you through any obstacles that you may find difficult along the way.
You are asked to finish an assignment by being given a look and told to re create this look on yourself, you will then take a photo that you will upload to your tutor where they will grade your work. There is other types of assignments not all of them are going to be putting make up on yourself and taking a selfie. There is also the option to learn how to set up your own freelance make up artistry business. If you are not interested in taking these classes then you do not have they are completely optional. I however will be taking these classes as I feel that they are a fundamental part of a make up artistry business being successful.
