I had an AMAZING learning experience at Glow. Not only was the course content relevant- it was also in sync with current and popular makeup skills and trends. Glow offered me scheduling flexibility which allowed me to complete my certifications without compromising my full time work schedule. The instructors are not only skilled professionals, but you can see that they truly have a passion teaching others. Graduating from Glow has opened a number of doors through out my MUA Career, and I am so grateful for the opportunities Glow continues to offer and engage Graduates in.
