I originally applied for the course because I have always loved being creative and makeup has been the perfect outlet. It is something I am passionate about and greatly enjoy and would love to follow a career in this area, which is why I was keen to partake in this course to sharpen my skills and have the opportunity to learn new and exciting styles and techniques and really enhance my makeup knowledge and ability.
I had an amazing experience doing my course at Carlow Institute! All the tutors are very talented in their areas, so I really felt like I gained a lot of new knowledge and skills throughout the course. The course content is so broad that I ended up learning new things I never thought I would like body-painting which really kept the course interesting! The facilities in the college are to such a high standard, the adjustable chairs and large mirrors making the makeup room a pleasure to work in everyday, really giving us a salon type of experience!
I am planning to progress to the level 6 Makeup Artistry course and would love to progress to teach makeup from that so that I can share my knowledge gained with others. I would also love the opportunity to work in a theatre/ cinema setting as these are both areas, I am very passionate about and feel like my time at Carlow Institute is really preparing me for both of these options!
