Summer School Experience

This year's Summer School took place from June 30th to August 22sd in Paris.

The hands on training and the support from my teachers was what I needed.

Having heard of the Summer School on the MAKE UP FOR EVER website, all four participants enrolled with the same goal in mind: learning the best of make-up artistry at the Academy. One adds she chose this program because it is the most complete in the shortest amount of time and for the quality of teachers.
Racquel, Poliana, Meriam and Ning had all practiced makeup before, whether they had attended a training prior to the Summer School or attended a faculty of cosmetology; and share the same love of this craft.

Their expectations were simple: extensively learn about make-up, from simple fixes to major artistic productions such as Special Effects and Face Painting. Racquel shares with us that she learnt "how to do a full and correct make-up application based on the structure of the face, and to not be afraid of the colors, how to use the MAKE UP FOR EVER line of products correctly and lots more!"

They all pretty much agree on what they learnt, but they tend to differ when it comes to their prefered part of the training. As one words out "SFX", another is all about Face Painting while Poliana is more down to earth, prefering "bridal and photo shoot make-up".
In the end, they all agree on the fact that they "loved the entire training though".

So much that Poliana confides that when going back home, she will continue to do make-up, teach it and learn much more about it. As for Racquel, she has signed up for another training, her third at the Academy! We'll soon have to think of a special certificate for her... Racquel the all-timer? In all seriousness, she is one of the first students to attend the newly opened TV & Cinema Academy at La Cité du Cinéma. "I would love to build a successful career with the skills I have been taught." Isn't that the best we can wish her?

She brings us back to business: "My Academy experience was wonderful, filled with happy memories". One of the girls adds "Definitely! It was fantastic, exciting and unforgettable". Hard to argue! 

"This course has helped me to build my skills and my confidence. The hands on training and the support from my teachers was what I needed and what worked for me. The teachers and the staff were very professional and very understanding, they were welcoming and always available to help with make-up and non-make-up issues as well, I will always remember my MAKE UP FOR EVER Academy  Summer School experience as I learnt so much and it was also fun filled."
