Best of Student Work – Featuring QC MUAs
It’s the best of student work! Meet Cristina Iliescu, Joshua Gilchrist, and Lynn Phu. We’re introducing you to these three standout QC students and grads today, because we’re so proud of the work they’ve accomplished! We want to give a big thanks to all three of our featured MUAs for sharing with us their inside perspectives on the makeup industry…and of course, some gorgeous photos of their work.
QC: What’s your favorite part about being a makeup artist, or makeup artist in training?
Cristina: My favorite part is that I can express my creativity and I can bring confidence, self-esteem, and a smile to my clients.
Joshua: I love working with people. The fact that makeup artistry is a very artistic field allows me to be creative!
Lynn: My favorite part is showing off my creative side because I love art and I love my clients’ happy reactions when I finish their makeup looks.
QC: What’s your dream job?
Cristina: Being a makeup artist is my dream job. It is the only job that makes me feel me.
Joshua: To be a world renowned makeup artist who everyone would love to work with.
Lynn: My dream job would be to do fantasy makeup for runway shows.
QC: If you could do anyone’s makeup, who would you love to work with?
Cristina: I would love to work with celebrities like Angelina Jolie or Kate Moss because they have that natural beauty that makes a makeup artist’s work a pleasure, but I know that I would feel totally fulfilled as a makeup artist if I could bring back the lost beauty of those people who have had a tough life.
Joshua: I would love to do makeup for Adele.
Lynn: Emma Stone, because she seems very laid back and easy going. I also think any makeup would work for her.
QC: Why did you choose to study with QC Makeup Academy?
Cristina: I wanted to study more about this passion of mine (as you all know, in makeup learning never ends!), so I was looking for something professional enough to feed my hunger for information but also allow me to continue my job. After almost two months of searching for the best school for me, I discovered QC Makeup Academy. After doing some research, I decided that it was exactly what I was looking for, so I enrolled immediately. I am so happy I did, and I am so honored to be part of this fascinating family.
Joshua: I was very happy with the great source of information. The Student Support Specialists are amazing and the assignments were a great way to evolve me into a wonderful artist.
Lynn: I chose QC Makeup Academy because the step-by-step guide was well planned and I wanted to learn something new.
