  4. Helo, i deserve to win a free pass to the Hygiene & Anatomy Class because it means alot to me and it will enlighten more on proper hygiene in makeup. I'm an aspiring makeup artist and i am determined to learn, Pls give me this chance. Thank you Email:

  5. As an upcoming makeup artist,it would be a great pleasure to me if given an opportunity to attend a free hygiene/anatomy class reason been that due to the kind of service i render it is easy to pass infection from one client to another without even knowing it, i believe this class will sensitize me on the need to keep up with good hygiene process(s)and also profer solutions on how to combat, eliminate and carry out a germ free service and business as it were. It would also awaken my knowledge in another for me to be able to communicate and educate my clients and fellow clleagues on the need to exhibit excellent hygiene practices. That at the end we would be able to keep the makeup and beauty industry germ free.

    thanks and i look forward to attending the class.


  6. I would appreciate to participate in the free hygiene class because a makeup artist with no adequate knowledge of proper hygiene/safety is likely to loose his or her clients and as a result may not last long in the industry irrespective of how good he or she may be. An opportunity to attend the class will hopefully enlighten and offer me a vast knowledge and understanding on how to maintain safety hygiene and render a worry-free services to our clients
    Attending the hygiene class will also help me to take high safety measures towards services renders to my clients,share the knowledge with my fellow colleagues who has little or no knowledge about its importance ,prevent our clients from having negative thoughts about makeup application will also to promote the art as a business and the makeup industry at large.

    I look forward to getting a positive response soonest.
