Starting At AOFM (Academy Of Freelance Make-Up)//First Day Nerves ♥

Happy Friday My Lovelies. 

Okay So if you follow me on Twitter (@TiffsBeautyBoxx) or Instagram (Tiffanylouise1711) you will have seen me banging on about my upcoming course at AOFM. I booked it nearly a year ago maybe even over a year ago actually and I can't believe it has come round so fast, my first day is tomorrow eeeeek!!! I am really really really excited but also nervous I guess thats just down to a fear of the unknown and the fact I need to commute to London and I am crap with trains hahaa!

Make-up is my passion and it would be a dream come true for me to be able to work within the make-up industry, thats why I decided to take a course at AOFM. Like most I have self taught myself the basic make-up skills from watching endless youtube tutorials and reading books, however I felt if I wanted to turn it in to my career I need a much deeper understanding of all the different types and styles of make-up. I know getting in to the make-up industry is a tough old nut to crack and by no means am I expecting to finish this course and be a full blown amazing make-up artist, it will take years of hard work and dedication and like most things practice is key. Its always good to have a dream and hopefully one day I can make mine come true. 

The course I am doing is called 'The Masters Certificate In Professional Make-up Artistry' I chose this one because it covers absolutely everything, it takes you right from the basics all the way to the much more advanced styles of make-up such as Avant Garde. Here is a link to show you a break down of everything covered. 

Now on to the good bit and this is where you lovely ladies might be able to help me :) One of the days on my course is a 'Professional kit building day' which basically means SHOPPING wahoooooooo!! We get taken around all the big names in make-up where we are offered exclusive discounts some are up to 50% OH MY GOD SO EXCITED!! Obviously it goes without saying I need to make a wish list for this day. MAC is going to be the most heavily discounted as it's a MAC registered school, also when I have completed my course I get my own MAC Pro Card so I need to know your must have Mac products. Your favourite eyeshadows, paint pots, Pigments, EVERYTHING what ever you recommend let me know :) 

Okay so thats the end of my ramble wish me luck, I bet I wont be able to sleep tonight hahaa! please leave me your product recommendations below or tweet me at @Tiffsbeautyboxx. Thank you for reading my lovelies have a great weekend. Loads of love mwah xxx
