I recently completed the retail makeup artistry course with Seventa Makeup Academy. The team is brilliant and I feel like I’ve come away with so many valuable skills. The course is in-depth and covers everything you will need to go into a job in the retail environment. If you are looking to go into a makeup-based retail job, I would highly recommend this course. I have since worked with Seventa Makeup Academy on a few projects and would highly recommend them to work with, as I’ve had such enjoyable experiences. Jeff and Juan are fantastic people and I’d definitely work and train with Seventa again in the future. – Megan –
