Meet Caitlin Black, a super talented alumni! After completing a beauty course with us, Caitlin decided she just couldn’t get enough of The Masters and came back for a makeup course! We got the scoop on her favourite things about her courses, The Masters, and her aspirations for the future.
What do you love about makeup?
I love having the ability to enhance everyone’s natural beauty and the freedom of creative expression that it gives me. I draw inspiration from colour and textures—I love playing around with different combinations until I’m happy with the outcome. My favourite makeup artists on Instagram at the moment are @gothwok and @hollifer_
What area of beauty therapy do you love the most and why?
I love eyelash extensions and any skin treatments. Lashes, because of the endless styles and techniques that can give a client their dream length and fullness that they desire. Skincare because people feel better and embrace their natural beauty when their skin is clearer and calmer.
What did you enjoy about studying at The Masters?
I loved all the job opportunities that The Masters offers to each of their students—their learning opportunities are unlike any other. I worked a few events throughout my time at The Masters and they all gave me new and different skills to develop, like leadership and working under pressure. All my teachers were super encouraging, especially Pam and Amanda; they really pushed me to do better than my best. The Masters really prepared me for what it is like out on jobs and how to handle all the different situations that I may face in the workplace.
What are your goals for the next few years?
I’m planning to keep on working on developing ideas to someday create my own business.
What advice would you give to students who are just about to start studying at The Masters?
You’ll have a lot of opportunities come up—take all that you can and go in there with an open mind. The more you open your mind, the more you’ll learn. Everyone has their own techniques and opinion on how to do things; you’ll find which one works best for you and possibly even create a new technique.
