I know its been a while since my last post, so I thought I'd give you a quick update on what I've been up to.
I've been thinking for a while of training as a Make Up Artist, as a bit of background, when I left school I was accepted to train as a Beauty therapist, however I also got offered a place to do my Nursing Training, I plumped for the Nursing, did my training and qualified as a paediatric nurse, I never really enjoyed it though and ended up leaving the profession, I always wished I'd done the Beauty Therapy instead.
Fast forward many years ! and now both my children are at full time school, I've been wanting to do something for myself and in the process hopefully find a career that I actually enjoy.
So, I've been researching different Make Up Artist courses, I've signed up to do an ICS distance course which will, hopefully, result in me gaining a BTEC in Make UP artistry.
Ideally I would have loved to do a hands on course but where I live, there just don't seem to be any schools, and travelling any distance is impossible whilst having to work around the school run!
I'm waiting for my course materials to arrive, then I'll be roping whoever I can in, to model for me !
If anyone has any experience of this type of course, I'd love to hear from you, any advice is welcome !
