At AOFM we pride ourselves on supporting our graduates whilst they are studying with us and also after graduation on their journey to becoming freelance professional makeup artists. To ensure that our graduates feel supported and confident to excel in their futures, we know that aftercare is key. This is why we secure the very best makeup artists and brands to offer fantastic Masterclasses, exclusive discounted shopping evenings and an opportunity to apply for positions on their team.
Here are some highlights from one of our favourite Masterclasses of the summer, with the one and only @ctilburymakeup’s senior makeup artist @lifeofkellydawn. Our graduates enjoyed an evening of tutorials, live Q&A and champagne, whilst Kelly taught them some of the best tips and tricks of the trade, this season’s new trends and some of Charlotte’s very own inside style and knowledge.
We understand the importance of mentoring and these Masterclasses instil confidence in our graduates, as well as allowing them to continue to learn and network post studying. We believe they are imperative to our students’ success and their ability to go on and find jobs which they love.
