EXTREMELY happy that I came to this school; I was looking for one that was only focused on makeup, since I'm not interested in cosmetology… I've learned so much, from obviously makeup application to sanitation, product knowledge, staying organized and becoming way quicker at the makeup application since it is very hands-on.
