Student Testimonial:
"I had to upgrade my skills to include Airbrush makeup since almost half of my clients are asking for it and also add some advanced looks to my portfolio. I chose and liked Glow Academy because they seemed to have a good hands on course, they have a studio onsite where we did portfolio shoots and students get lots of industry opportunities. 

Only thing is that I wish prices were a bit lower, but then again I got a great kit, portfolio edits and a lot of industry work while I was there so really it was a fair price. 

Some other schools cost more, private lessons were much cheaper elsewhere but in the end it was worth the investment.

With airbrush now my rates are at least 40% more which makes up for what I paid. People respond well when I say that I studied at GLOW, that's the best part."
