Level 3 in Beauty Make-Up Techniques
Previous Institution: Lacon Childe School
We do makeup, spray tans, eyelashes and loads more. Eyelash extensions were my favourite thing to do this year and I can’t wait to progress with them. Having the commercial salon, Evolve, on campus provides a great experience for students to get to know what it’s like to work in a real salon. This course is totally worth it, but you need to have a passion for beauty and willing to work hard.
This course is linked to roles within the NHS.
