I am currently studying makeup artistry at O Fiaich Institute. As qualified a Beauty Therapist, I was looking for a course that would give me the confidence, knowledge and the best qualification to add to my skills and further my career. Every aspect of the course is extremely professional and the teachers convey the course material in a clear and effective manner. I would highly recommend the course to anyone with an interest in the makeup industry.
