Level 3 in Beauty Make-up Techniques
Previous school: North Shropshire College
I joined Level 3 in Beauty Make-up Techniques as an external student previously studying health and social care, in the hopes that I would be able to go on to peruse a degree in makeup. Fast forward eight months and that’s exactly what I’m about to do! I have been offered a place at the University of Salford to carry on my education studying makeup for fashion, in my favourite city! None of this would have been possible without the help of Becky and the other wonderful tutors who have guided us all through the past year. I can genuinely say that I have thoroughly enjoyed every part of this course.
