MAC MasterclassWed, 31 Jan 2018 A group of Year 10 and 11 students had the opportunity to attend a MAC Cosmetics masterclass in the Grand Central store in Birmingham. This enabled students to gain an insight into the world of work within the beauty sector. Students were able to ask the staff about their experiences and what they did in order to get to where they are within their careers. They also observed one of the artists demonstrating make up techniques and looks in order to help build on the students existing skill set. During this time, the makeup artist talked to the students about each stage of the makeup process and the importance of building rapport with the clients you are making over. Staff also spoke to students about the recruitment process and the different avenues within MAC Makeup. Students thoroughly enjoyed their experience and will look forward to putting their new knowledge into practice. Feedback from the students included: "I really enjoyed the workshop I like the look that was created on the model." "I now understand the types of roles within the beauty sector."
