In January of this year, Cidesco released its very own, “International Guide to Becoming a Make-Up Artist.” It’s one part out of a series, which the company has designed to give students and makeup artists the tools needed to start their own makeup artistry businesses.
The guide features key points and advice from makeup artists and accredited makeup school founders including, Linda Mehrens, founder of Scandinavia’s first Cidesco makeup school, Mehrens Academy, and Leena Khandekar, founder of Lee’s Beauty and Spa Institute in India. Subjects such as hygiene, marketing, education, and work experience are highlighted throughout the guide with the hope of giving future students and aspiring artists a head-start in the makeup industry. The guide stresses the importance of constant upskilling.
“The very aim of Cidesco is to provide the most comprehensive, globally recognized education in beauty and spa therapy there is,” says Anna-Cari Gund, Cidesco president. “By sharing the advice of our highly experienced members, we can help to develop this, and to guide students and prospective students with their studies and their future careers. We hope that many of our students will feel inspired by this guide and see the opportunities good training brings to their careers. We look forward to following their success.”
The guide will soon be available for download on CIDESCO’s international website, along with a number of other educational guides including The Cidesco International Guide To Working Abroad and The Cidesco International Guide to Opening a Beauty Salon.
