The international beauty industry will be worth £357 billion ($461 billion) by 2018, according to projections*. Growth is being driven by changing demographics, social media, plus new products and ingredients. Industry analysts, Mintel, have identified ‘Active Beauty’ as a key beauty trend for 2017**. In response, the industry has developed products that help to boost and protect our hair and skin from exposure to damaging elements such as pollution and ultraviolet (UV) light.
With the right training, you can learn the skills to boost your own appearance and mind, as well as how to use these tools professionally.
Train in skin care and beyond
Learning online means you can work a course around any other commitments. Move beyond basic skin or makeup techniques and raise your expertise to a professional level, using a creative mix of new skills and practical webinars to help your training stick. Find a course that will give you the product information to identify your probiotic skin care from your hyaluronic acid products. Learn which works best with different ages, or the benefits of treatments such as deep cleansing facials and massage.
Makeup like a professional
Whether you want to learn for yourself, run online makeup tutorials, or work in the beauty business, makeup can be key to how we feel about ourselves and project to the world. The right beauty training can teach you to highlight and contour to be Instagram ready, learn the best eyebrow shapes for different faces, and how to take your makeup from a natural day look to evening and beyond (bridal, magazine, or runway looks).
Learn skills to take you from ahead
There is no limit to your ambition with the right training. Personal beauty can also cover key skills such as nail art, hair removal and even hair styling.
